Exactly one year after the release of Jesus Is Born, Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir have returned with an EP called Emmanuel. The five-song project was composed and executive produced by West. Listen to Emmanuel below.


According to press materials, Emmanuel means “God is with us” and the music featured on the EP is composed of “ancient and Latin inspired new music.” The EP was released on Christmas day in “celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.”


Kanye West’s last solo studio album Jesus Is King arrived last year following multiple delays. This year, he’s shared a few one-off singles, including “Wash Us in the Blood” with Travis Scott, “DONDA,” and “Nah Nah.” He was meant to release a new album, also called DONDA, this summer, however the LP never materialized.

Get ready to see more from the DC universe, ’cause Warner Bros. is planning to debut six superhero movies a year. On Dec. 27, Warner Bros. president Walter Hamada revealed to the New York Times that starting in 2022, the company will be releasing up to four DC titles in theaters and two feature films for HBO Max annually.


According to Hamada, “the most expensive” DC films are designed for theater releases, while less costly, riskier titles like Batgirl and Toxic Shock will drop exclusively on the streaming service. The company will also develop various DC TV series for HBO Max that will “interconnect” with the big-screen releases.


The news comes just a few weeks after Disney announced a slate of new Marvel movies and shows on its Investor Day on Dec. 11. While we already have DC’s The Batman, The Flash, Aquaman 2, and Shazam 2 to look forward to in 2022, we can’t wait to see what else is to come for our favorite DC heroes.

The 30th of October 2020, Honolulu-based rapper TAUREAN MEACHAM is exploding back onto the conscious hip-hop scene with ‘BLAKK RADIKAL’, his third project this year and his best work to date. This album is raw, real, full of rage — and it deserves to be heard. He’s talking ancestors and martyrs (‘Saviour’), slavery and shootings (‘Hands In The Sky’), anxiety and insomnia (‘PTSD’). It’s a lot to tackle in one record — and yet Meacham nails it with inimitable finesse. This, above all else, is an album of substance.


“The album is my most complete work to date. There are no wasted bars.” — TAUREAN MEACHAM From an epic intro with soaring Bond-esque orchestral textures (‘The Gift and The Curse’), to a playful Latin inspired/speakeasy jazz crossover (‘Camp Lo’), to the bassy, bossy trap track ‘Thrones’, Meacham proves over and again that he’s not only an artist who understands melody and rhythm, but a self-managed, self-published hip-hop veteran whose level of storytelling, rap flow, production value and attention to detail is impressively, consistently masterful. “The sound is the album spans all sounds of hip hop.
