Having just ended the first month of 2011 with the highest views per day and month SoulCulture has ever experienced [woo ha!], forgive the extra pep in my step as I bring you the digest of SoulCulture updates for the last day of January – with a few treats leftover from the weekend.

Highlights of the day’s speaker nourishment include our #MusicMonday exclusive download of MeLo-X‘s remix of Adele & Jamie XX‘s “Rolling Through The Deep,” plus Swizz Beatz‘ meddlings with the sounds of Fela Kuti for his Monster Mondays giveaway and a brand new song from Lupe Fiasco.

More in-depth musical exploration can be found in our latest features on Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller and revisiting D’Angelo‘s classic debut album, Brown Sugar, with his brother Luther Archer, who co-wrote two songs on the LP. Props to Ayodele and Chris for some great articles.

Our film geeks were also kept happy with news and trailers, such as The Sunset Limited featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones, the announcement of the new Superman movie’s lead actor and The First Avenger: Captain America star Chris Evans‘ cover story in Empire magazine.

…and there’s always more; click away below.
