Method Man on Tyler, the Creator & Odd Future being compared to Wu-Tang | SoulCulture.TV


As several members of the Wu Tang Clan touched down in the UK last week for their nationwide tour [catch their final two dates in Edinburgh on June 14 and Manchester on June 15], SoulCulture TV sat down with the legendary Method Man for a chat - watch below as he gives his thoughts on Odd Future, the media comparisons kicking around likening the West Coast group to Wu-Tang, and their likeably "weird" front-man Tyler, the Creator, in particular for his song "Yonkers."

"I like Odd Future - they're good, they're different... a breath of fresh air." --Method Man

KiD CuDi - MANIAC (Short Film) | Trailer 2


After the initial trailer teaser trailer for his short film MANIAC which is inspired by the track from his sophomore album Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr Rager, KiD CuDi unveiled a second trailer earlier this week which although is very very short it gives us a look at some of the action in the short film which will be unveiled in full on Halloween 2011.

"MANIAC is a short film inspired by the song. It is not a music video and it has no reference to the song content. It will be scored by Dot and I as a film with all new music. Directed By Shia LaBeouf for Grassy Slope and Ragin4Dayz Productions." - KiD CuDi


Jay-Z x Kanye West's Watch The Throne album partial tracklist revealed | News

Well this is exciting - it seems that the rumoured tracklist for Jay-Z and Kanye West's much anticipated album Watch The Throne which made the rounds yesterday is in fact genuine but missing quite a few songs. The epic project was supposed to drop in March but failed to materialise, much to the disappointment of Hip-Hop fans worldwide. The appearance of this partial tracklisting suggests that the most recently touted July release date might be accurate.

They've been spotted globetrotting together a lot this year, with rumours of recording sessions from London to Paris and everywhere in between. With the album near completion, here's hoping they turn up at Glastonbury and debut a track or three there.

TRACKLIST:
1. Lift Off (Feat. Beyonce & Bruno Mars)
2. Murder To Excellence
3. Illest Mother Alive
4. Why I Love You So (Guilt Trip)
5. That Shit Crazy
6. Living So Italian
7. Who Gonna Stop Me
8. Whole Lifetime
9. We Are Young
10. Anthem

New Spiderman Movie: 1st Image Of Andrew Garfield in new costume revealed | Geek Alert


Columbia Pictures have just unveiled the 1st image from the forthcoming Spiderman reboot movie, giving us geeks the 1st peek at the new spidey costume worn by Andrew Garfield who will play Peter Parker aka the friendly neighborhood Spiderman.

Marc Webb’s currently untitled 3D Spider-Man reboot is due out on July 3, 2012 and the story will be a “gritty, contemporary” take on the popular Marvel superhero.

One thing that pissed me off to no end about the recent Spiderman movies was the web shooting... I mean in the comics Spiderman has a webshooter and in the movies he shoots the webs from his skin *bleh*.

We hopefully judging by the picture below that will be rectified in the new movie as it looks like Spidey will have web shooters built into the new costume.

YAY!!

For more info lock into the official Spiderman reboot facebook
