Some times it's really nice to come home after a long day at work and kick back and watch a couple documentaries. Well...Actually I only ever have time for one a night. But anyway, really diggin' "Trapped". A thought provoking documentary that examines the role of the bottled water industry and it's effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
"OH WORD?" your thinking. And the answer is YES, WORD! So check it out.
If you've got a netflix account that'll really come in handy. Or if you're good with torrents (although I do not advocate stealing) then you're also taken care of.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to work with a very talented artist who some of you may, or may not know as "Chance the Rapper". Pitchfork describes his recent album, Acid Rap as, "...not trying to be an alternative; it’s an attempt to encompass everything. There are shout outs, musical or lyrical, to practically every important Chicago tradition short of Thrill Jockey. It invites elements of classic soul, juke, gospel, blues-rock, drill, acid jazz, house, ragtime scat , and R. Kelly, Twista, and a young Kanye to the same open mic poetry night"
Rolling Stones also reports that, "it’s the density of wit, ideas, and verbal invention that makes this one of the year’s defining hip-hop releases".
Jokingly giving Chance a hard time I said, "I wont listen to your album unless it's thought provoking and has an impeccable beat". He then promised me in an even tone with effortless confidence, and it is true that, "it will blow your mind".
I not only encourage you can listen to and download Chances new album, Acid Rap but I IMPLORE you.
