Next month will see us roll out a project that we have been working on for the last few months.
Each month on the blog we will feature a new creative artist that i admire and respect.
Each week we will showcase work from the chosen artist and also a Q & A.
At the end of the month we will then post up a link to our ebay account where you can bid on an one of kind artwork especially made for FN.
All proceeds from the auction will go to the charity foundation Inspire more specifically their sub-charity Reach Out
Reach Out is a website created to help tackle the growing number of teen suicides and depression.
Here is the Inspire foundations mission statement.
Tragically, the leading cause of death among young Australians (14-25) is suicide. To tackle this issue the Inspire Foundation provides services which aim to improve young people’s mental health and let them know that they don’t have to go through tough times alone. Our flagship service ReachOut.com increases young people’s knowledge of mental health and wellbeing, increases their help seeking skills and ensures that they feel less alone. We provide our services online because it offers young people anonymity; it offers help and support 24 hours a day; it is accessible to young Australians in remote regions and it allows us to help thousands at any one time.
By 2020 we aim to make a global contribution to young people’s mental health and wellbeing with every young Australian knowing, trusting and using ReachOut.com when they need to.
ReachOut.com is underpinned by a program model that’s based on our strength in providing mental health support services that are accessible and relevant to young people.
Game ( Dropped the ‘The’ after Triple H from WWE sued him) releases his latest mixtape ‘California Republic’.
Now Game isn’t really my type of rapper but i don’t mind checking out his mixtapes from time to time. The problem i have with Game as a rapper is he just names drops way too much. There is not a rapper out there that drops other rappers names and high end brands more than the Game. He is thankfully not dropping Dr. Dre’s name as much as in the past.
This mixtape features a lot of big names also in the rap game. ( No pun intended) From the likes of Snoop, Rick Ross, Fabulous, Fat Joe, Lupe, Pharrell, Lil Wayne and Drake. I found half this mixtape was total garbage but i mean 95% of all rap mixtapes are trash anyways so 50% isn’t too bad. Especially when the mixtape is 24 tracks deep. The best line from the mixtape is by Game in the track ‘ She want to have my baby- Ft Trey Songz’ Everybody fucking Amber Rose, is the pussy good? Only Kanye/ Camron knows.
The mixtape features a freestyle to Tyler the Creators ‘Yonkers’ track by rapper NoBody. In short Nobody has Noflow.
Another note i wrote down when listening and i know i’ll get some hate for this but Snoop Dogg should of quit rapping after his first album ‘Doggystyle’. He hasn’t released anything close to that album since and his flow isn’t that good, lets be honest.
The three standout tracks for me from this mixtape are the following.
She want to have my baby ft. Tre Songz
Death Penalty ft. Fabulous and Slim Thug
Tonight ft. Mele
In the end the mixtape is pretty good for what it is. A Game mixtape. Download it. Bang your head to it for a few months then delete it off your itunes.
