So everyone is excited about Assassin’s Creed hitting the big screen, including myself. I would be lying though, to say I’m not nervous to see how this goes down, after hearing that they are going to flip the formula of the games. For those of you who don’t play these games the primary focus of the game is set in the past, while the present is more of a background thought. They recently released the news that the movie will be set 65% in the present and 35% in the past…. For lovers of the franchise like myself… I’m a little weary of this. I know it won’t be exactly like the games and that’s a good thing… but I hope it’s not just a movie called Assassin’s Creed with nothing but the basic concept of genetic memory to relate to. Here’s to being hopefully optimistic.
Local Pittsburgh rapper, West, drops what I consider to be an extremely slept on project. From the first time I saw him perform live I instantly thought this kid was different. I hate to put “soundalikes” to such an original artist but for those who base opinions off that type of thing… He reminds me of what would happen if Kanye and Kid Cudi decided to merge souls to create one being. This project, while short, doesn’t disappoint. West has such an easily digestible delivery combined with a unique voice that catches your attention effortlessly. I don’t know if I have a favorite track specifically but I definitely am a huge fan of how he goes about putting together hooks. After this 5 track EP I am definitely anxiously awaiting what’s next.
