Hands of Stone.

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.09.06 PM.png

Whoa this pic is lit haha. I stole it off Usher’s IG. I’ve been wanting to see this movie ever since I heard he was starring as boxing legend Sugar Rey Leonard. I was literally expecting him to be in the entire movie but SURPRISE. He’s not even the main character lmao. It’s actually about his boxing opponent Roberto Duran, who’s also a legend. His trainer is Robert De Niro in the movie, another legend haha.

Hands of Stone at The Grove at 7:10pm. Smh at me, I had invited a bunch of people and my ass was late af haha. Standard. Good thing the theater was empty af haha I had my homegirl just choose a row. Shout out to her. I went with my 2 girls and homeboy I hadn’t seen in a minute. I got there literally when the movie started, the exact dot. How do I do it?

During the movie, I had a moment because I realized my homie looks JUST LIKE USHER. Hashtag doppleganger. It was funny. Usher’s fro was poppin though. He legit looked like he was from the 80’s. I asked my hg if this was his acting debut, and she goes, no he was in She’s All That. Lawl.

IMDB plot: The legendary Roberto Duran and his equally legendary trainer Ray Arcel change each other’s lives.

This does the movie no justice haha. I’m about to hit you with the Wiki summary, it’s long don’t hate me.

At age 72, legendary trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) comes out of retirement to coach world-class Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán (Édgar Ramírez). Arcel becomes a mentor to the ferocious fighter, convincing him that winning ultimately comes down to strategy. After scoring knockout after knockout, Duran prepares for a bout against Sugar Ray Leonard, the undefeated lightweight champion. Five months later, on Nov. 25, 1980, the two titans meet for an infamous rematch that makes boxing history.

Obvi, this is based on a true story. I was honestly really touched by it. Like I clapped at the end haha. I guess that’s expected with a film about a boxing legend repping the US. The film did a great job shedding light on the politics behind the sport, and how these professional athletes rep their country, and the impact they have on their people. It’s a big deal man.

This definitely reminded me of all the other dope boxing movies out there. Not in a bad way, just the same story line. It definitely was no Southpaw though haha. No one tops Eminem. The movie was an hour 45 min. My hg had to pee twice lmao I always make fun of her bladder.

0

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the fucking hot actress who plays Duran’s wife. First of all, there was a lot of Spanish dialogue, but it was hot lmao. Forever wishing I was fluent in another language. Anyways. Her name is Ana de Armas. This might be her breakthrough film haha. There’s a pretty intimate sex scene where hg gets naked. Her boobs are enormous.

Usher gets intimate with his girl too. Like you see his ass lmao. Fucking Hollywood.

I needed this movie tn. Life is unbearable rn. I hate the unknown guys. I hate not knowing the future. Some shit went down with my family too that really just broke my heart. Like, it made me so sad when I found out.

I went on a run last night for the first time in a minute, and it felt really good. Like really good. But I hate running lmao. Finally listened to most of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s P3 album. One of the 8 albums I have in queue. Had to look up how to spell that word lmao.

I didn’t work out today so I feel like I’m lacking in endorphins. Had chocolate though, does that count? Also why does literally everything in the world have to be bad for you? WHY.

TRACK OF THE DAY: This the jam.

 

Mechanic: Resurrection

0

Jessica Alba is bae. And literally there’s no way she popped a baby out of her haha. THhey literally created a scene so she could show off her body in a bikini lmao. Mechanic: Resurrection at The Grove at 8:40pm, fashionably late with my PIC. I only heard of this movie bc my bro saw her at Arclight Hollywood for the premiere and I freaked out cause I love her haha.Anyways. Today was nuts.

One thing I learned is that it’s okay to be a fan. Being in the industry, I have been exposed to a lot of rappers and celebrities. And if there’s someone who you truly admire and love, what they call fangirling, THAT’S OKAY. That’s how it should be. You SHOULD be a fan and freak out. Because they’re talented and to me, it’s a way of saying thank you. For your talents.

Anyways. Today was nuts. Literally my life has been insane lately, and I want to hide under a rock. Also, I started my FOMO blog on DX, so I’ll prob only use this for movies now. I know, you’re heartbroken. Check it out though!

http://hiphopdx.com/editorials/id.3421/title.fomoblog-kanyes-pop-up-shop-fail-young-dolph-is-prince-akeem-kap-g-got-the-girls

I had an interview in Santa Monica today to try to find a placement for my last year of fieldwork, and it was a total bust. It made me so sad. Literally had so much hope and it just stabbed me in the heart. She said they didn’t need any more interns. So why the fuck did you agree to meet with me? Smh. Whatever.

I really really wanna get back in school this semester. I have to. But it’s so beyond my control at this point. It sucks so much.

Worked all day. Then hit this dope boxing event. Well, it ended up being just a little worout sesh. Shout out to the girl who invited me out. It was promoting this TV film called Ringside, and all I got from the flier was that it was going to be a workout class. It was at The Body in Hollywood, and the trainer/owner is literally so lit. She opened it up with her boyfriend, and they’re just the hottest couple ever lmao. It is right across from Hollywood Cemetry on Santa Monica, but it took me 35 min to get there haha. Not lit.

I invited my girl and was super excited for it cause I wanted a hard workout haha. Turns out this event was legit all the cast of the movie. We were like uhhhhhh lmao. They were LIT. Like, hot af. And fit. So after they took pictures of themselves for like 10 years, they finally started the workout. They said it was going to be an hour but it ended being a lot shorter.

The warmup actually had me out of breath haha but I wanted more. Legit there was this one exercise with ropes that I couldn’t do and it made me so so sad. I have no upper body strength :(. My hg KILLED IT THOUGH. Shout out to her, she literally owned that shit. I’m jealous haha.

We actually also shot a video for DX compiling people’s reactions to the Frank Ocean hype. That should be lit. I was so ratch from the day though I was like I should not be on camera rn haha. *skull emoji*

We had plans to hit the movie after. I love The Grove so much haha. You already know it was popping. I gave my girl my last free pass haha but she deserved it cause we were late af. It didn’t matter though, this movie is all action so it really doesn’t matter if you miss any parts haha.

IMDB Plot: Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now he is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them look like accidents.

Do you guys like Jason Statham? I think he’s super lit. He always plays his role super well. There was a sex scene with Jessica Alba that was like whoa lmao. Like how many times they gotta film that until they get it? The movie was an hour 40. Totally doable.

The film got mixed reviews, but the low was pretty low. I swear it’s always because the picture is terrible. Like when you can tell they use a green screen… not lit. It makes the entire movie tacky af. I feel bad bc there was def potential there haha. Yo, bitches clapped after the movie. That was some shit.

The theater was packed too. But I guess it is opening night on a Friday. Makes sense. Man, I was just telling my girl why I love movies so much. Bc it’s an excuse to avoid the turn up haha. Seriously, fuck going out. I just don’t see the point. Getting drunk is such a waste of life. Although I was guilty of it for like way 8 years.

I guess this movie is the sequel to one a couple years ago. I was sad bc it was hella unrealistic. Like the shit Jason pulls off is just like…. impossible. Which made it less cool. His murders were fucking lit though. Literally nuts haha. It took place all around the world, but what really stuck out was how fucking beautiful Sydney, Australia was. I passed up a trip with my fam and 100% regret it. It’s gorgeous.

I’m soooooo scattered rn. Help.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Life.

 

Florence Foster Jenkins

0

First of all, I had to look up the name of this movie again lmao. Florence Foster Jenkins. Fucking hard to remember. Legit have never heard of this until 10 min before we decided to go haha. It turned out to be so good though. SO WORTH IT. Legit my life is crazy rn, and movies are such a good break from life. Truly. Esp if it’s a really good film. And this was.

So me and my hg were supposed to attend this screening of Ringside, this movie that was going to be released on TV or some shit idk. It was so crazy because the screening was actually at Actor’s Fund, where I was originally placed for my second year fieldwork at USC. But them bitches let me go. So fucking sad haha. I actually really liked them too. And they’re close to where I live. SIGH.

So it wasn’t meant to be right off the bat haha. The screening was at 7 with a cast Q&A after, and we pulled up around 7:20 and they said they were at capacity. Even though we were on the list. Smh. Fashionably late doesn’t always fly lmao. I hit up the publicist who set it up but she had responded after we left. She said she could get us in though, SMH again ha.

I feel so bad haha shout out to my one hg who actually asked me to see this movie, but we ended up seeing it without her. I’m sorry!! Haha she couldn’t go til later and we wanted to go then. Also gotta be up mad early tomorrow, long ass day. So we hit the 7:35pm showing at The Grove. Low key it was perfect. Around the corner haha. And I love that place man. I had an extra movie pass so I gave it to my girl <3.

The theater was kinda packed, but it was the smaller theaters. Ooo they had a screening for Don’t Breathe, which is a scary movie coming out. We’re excited for that one haha halla if you wanna come. But anywho this movie got super good reviews. I feel like the Indie films always come out on top. Fuck mainstream haha. Plus they had some big timers in it.

Here’s the plot: The story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice.

Short and sweet lmao. It stars Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, and Simon Helberg. Omg I fell in love with Simon. My girl knew him from Big Bang Theory. He’s hella funny man. Super nerdy but super perfect for his role in the movie. It’s almost 2 hours long but it’s super interesting and entertaining the entire time. I loved it ha.

AND it’s based on a true story. That’s always a plus, in any situation. It was such a trip though. Hella takeaways haha. Me and my girl were trying to list them. My top was: do what you love, even if you suck. Lmao. Fr though. And sucking with opera singing is no joke. Like people’s ears get hurt haha. And that’s exactly what Meryl did. Also wondering if that was her singing throughout the film, because that shit was intense haha.

I can’t help to laugh because my brother thinks she’s hella annoying. He woulda been so pissed if I made him watch this haha. UmmMmmMmMmm. I had to get a FUCKING nother rental car today. Legit wasted my morning waiting around only to be put in a fucking Toyota Prius. Jk it’s not that bad, I actually super fuck with the car haha. Save gas hayyyyy.

I had hella work to do when I finally got back. Got Starbucks for the first time in a long time and it was so bomb guys haha. White mocha frap for life. I also crashed a class at USC today, trying to enroll this semester. Crossing my fingers man. It was soooooo weird to be back. Especially when I thought I wasn’t going back. Sigh. Life is crazy.

There were a couple girls in my class whom I adore, so it was good to see them. But man, I’m constantly distracted. It’s so hard for me to focus on one thing at any given time. Like opening 10 tabs on Google Chrome. Why can’t I just finish one task and move on to the next like a normal person?

TRACK OF THE DAY: G-Eazy just dropped this. Shout out to the Bay ALWAYS.

 

War Dogs.

0

Whooooaaaaa guys. This movie was super lit. And the fact that it’s a true story makes it that much cooler. Shoutout to Jonah Hill for doing the damn thang. My bro goes “I thought he lost weight” lmao. Def not for this film. He killed it though, and I have to mention how beautiful his blue eyes are haha. Miles Teller is the other star who’s name I was trying to figure out the entire movie.

War Dogs at The Grove at 4:35pm with my bros. Shout out to them I love them so much!!! Fr we had a good ass Sunday today. It was great and sad it’s over haha. The theater was pretty packed but we found seats to the side. This was the big movie opening this weekend besides Kubo (OMG I almost said Kabu again). It got pretty good ratings, like 75% ish. I actually think it deserves higher.

Here’s the plot: Based on the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

Hmmm, dunno if that did it justice haha. It takes place in the 2000s in Miami, which made me hella miss Miami haha. I was like…. wait. Could I live there? So beautiful. Basically Jonah and Miles get involved in a gun smuggling business which lands them hella money. But of course: mo money, mo problems.

It’s really good. It’s 2 hours long so prepare for that. My second bro said it’s one of those movies that keep you engaged the entire time, like you have to keep watching. My lit ass fell asleep for a little lmao and I was like sad about it. Like I was sad I missed shit when I woke up haha. I cannot blaze during the day guys haha. I just can’t. Can’t hang.

If you’re into drug movies like Pablo Escobar type shit, I’d recommend this for sure. Before the movie, me and my bros tried to hit the Kanye West pop up shop in LA. Well me, and I dragged them haha. FAIL AF. We at first drove by it because I had this grand idea of cutting the line, but then I legit felt bad bc kids were waiting for like 2 hours haha. 2 hours standing in the heat haha. I think I wanted to get in more for the challenge than the actual shop. Smh.

But yeah the lady at the front said there’s no media or press so I just walked away with my head down low lmao. But then! We saw a dope Kanye mural on the corner of Fairfax and Melrose, and it was right next to a gas station and I needed gas. Perf. It turns out this was an art gallery. The minute I walked in I saw Bape clothing on a rack and was like, I’m home lmao. It’s called Dom Gallery in case any of you guys want to check it out. Real small but super dope.

Before the movie I made a dispensary stop which turned into me buying a new piece. Which I haven’t done in sooooo long. This pipe only cost 12 bucks though and I seriously needed one bc I CAN’T ROLL FOR SHIT. But this means I’m gonna smoking a lot more smh. It’ll be at my side whenever I need haha.

Anyways. We were on a good one haha. And then we got a foot massage after at Wilshire Spa on the way home. Mine sucked this time haha I was so mad at my dude. He was so slow and took forever in between the transitions. I legit wanted to be like you’re wasting my money bro haha but I controlled myself. Ummm, what else.

I had my bro’s friend try to untangle my necklaces lmao sooo sad. He couldn’t haha. I think I’ma just throw them away haha. If you’re new, I spent a good portion of last night complaining about these hanger of necklaces that got tangled during my move, and then an hour wasted untangling them. There’s 3 left and it’s legit impossible and hurts my soul. I should just toss them. Yeah.

This week… is gonna suck. Ha. Meep. I’m future trippin. Tough.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Throwback. I fucking love this song.

Kubo and the Two Strings.

0

You guys. I’m so fucking irritated rn. Like I’m gonna cry haha. Dramatic, but I’m serious. So I haven’t fully moved in. Yes since July smh. But it’s legit just this last pile of jewelry that I’ve been meaning to go through to see if I can get rid of them. I legit don’t wear ANY of the jewelry I’ve hoarded throughout my 10 years of being a shopaholic. It’s so fucking sad. They’re nice too. And they’ve just collected dust the entire time.

But anyways. I legit spent an hour before the movie untangling these necklaces. They were all hanging on a hanger and the movers just fucking wrapped paper around it and taped it and threw it in the box. I guess what else are they gonna do but damn they fucked me over haha so frustrated. Not only did I waste an hour of my precious Saturday earlier, but now there are these 3 necklaces left that are SO fucking tangled that I can’t get. Like, not just one string necklaces too, multiple. Layers. I would legit pay someone to untangle these rn. No joke. I’m so sad haha.

ANYWAYSSSSSSS. Today was a fail lmao. I really cannot be smoking during the day unless I’m on vacation because I get NOTHING done. It was fun, but then you realize how much you failed and you’re just like damn haha. Like I was so on schedule with my laundry, and I went back to go switch it… come to find I never pressed start. WTF is that shit haha. Okay. Let’s talk about Kubo haha.

First of all, this movie got motherfucking 96% haha like WHAT. And it’s not even Disney. Idk what it is, but it’s lit haha. I was so mad cause my boss saw it with The Game and his daughter lmao like TFTI bro. Jk. Kinda. It was at my theater too haha AMC Century 15, which I hit tn.

I legit can’t get the name right lmao I have to keep referencing. Like I said Kabo earlier. Smh.

7pm showing. I thought it would be way crowded but it was like the opposite haha. The theater itself was actually crowded, but the movies not so much. We luckily copped three seats in the middle. I asked my two hgs to come. I love when my friends are d for movies haha <3. Shout out to them for coming.

Here’s the IMDB plot: A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.

This is as simple as it gets bc that shit was HARD to understand. Fr, how do little kids follow this haha. Idk. I was also HELLA tired and distracted when I first sat down haha it hit me out of the blue. My hg actually turned to ask me a question and I had my eyes closed lmao I was like SHIT. But yeah, the story is a bit confusing. Also, just found out this was PG which is good bc there was def some violence haha. I was like there’s no way this is G.

Anyways. It was really cute haha and entertaining. Kubo is Asian too, shout out to my people lmao. It’s like an hour 40 minutes. Not bad at all. Idk. I don’t really see the appeal to little kids but my hg said they’re like a new generation haha and dif way of thinking. Makes sense. This goes back to my phobia of getting old haha. Speaking of…

Earlier today, we all hit our team member’s baby shower. I never know what to call him. I don’t like saying co-worker cause that’s too professional, team member just sounds off. Idk. Homie fits but I know him from work. Lmao who cares, moving on…

We were sitting at the table, my hg and her bf. My fav couple I love them haha. But yeah I straight up was going off about how I don’t want to live past 30 SMH haha. First of all, I pulled up dumb lit lmao. It was like at a church in Inglewood, and it was lit. Like decorations, party favors, food, setup, games, everything. I was like so in shock for some reason. It was my first baby shower and the reality of like grown up shit always trips me out. More than it should tbh.

Like my girl’s bridal party I recently hit was a trip. And then this. Too much. Honestly though, they’re so fucking cute haha. I’ve never met his fiance, and was super excited to. This dude (the baby’s father) is legit one of my fav people. Genuinely just so fucking lovable. I love those people man. So far from this, but I hope I can impact people in a positive way like this. It’s so great.

Guys I won the raffle! And I don’t win ANYTHING haha. It was a movie which I ended up giving away lmao bc I honestly would do nothing with it. Just excited I won something haha. I brought diapers to enter that damn raffle. It was so awkward copping them at the grocery store haha.

I’m so scattered rn haha but yeah anyways. I need to get my life together. Real. Talk.

Sorry for rambling. Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Dom Kennedy dropped this last night and I about had a heart attack lmao. Love.

Young Dolph.

IMG_2239

It’s Dolphhhhhh! Okay this is gonna be hella quick cause I have hella shit to do haha. Young Dolph is one of my favorite ignant rappers lmao. Legit just fuck with his turn up/get money mentality. Dang I just saw he had over a million followers on IG, like did homeboy make it? He really living that lifestyle he rapping about lmao.

I thought he was more slept on. Most of you might know him from Cut It with OT Genasis, but he’s his own amazing self haha. I actually forgot who put me on… it’s always one of my homies that gets me stuck on an artist haha. I called him the King Of Memphis one time and my editor goes, is that self-titled? Lmao hater af. I guess Yo Gotti is the OG, but Dolph the new wave.

He legit has tracks like Get Paid and Its Going Down that I could blast in the whip ANY DAY and just be so turnt. Get Paid would get me through the work day when I hated my job ha. Sad. That’s that turn up though. Work out to Dolph and you golden.

I low key came back from the bay for this shit lmao. Dolph’s the one artist I actually haven’t seen live. And I invited my homeboy I haven’t seen in a minute so I was excited to see him. This was the first time I got all access to go backstage and shit so I had to get my homeboy a wristband so we could both mob. Finessed.

Shout out to his publicist for copping me a Pink Dolphin tee! He had a pop-up shop on Fairfax today but I couldn’t make up bc I was mobbing back from the bay. She said he only made 100 shirts so I was honored haha. That’s honestly a collab that should have happened years ago tho ha. So genius.

I’m so fucking sad haha but it’s time to get back to real life. Not that I didn’t work yesterday, but just hella shit to handle in LA :(. My to-do list and appointments this week will be the death of me. I truly enjoyed my time in the bay and miss my friends a lot. Also was very lit the entire time. I legit stopped blazing in LA before I left. When you stop for a little, you low key forget about that shit.

Idk if it’s a good thing I’m back on haha but whatever. The ride back actually wasn’t bad at all. We just listened to dope music and got lit af haha. Legit, bay kids are automatic fam haha. So much in common. But seriously shout out to my homeboy for letting me ride back with him. Truly truly grateful.

Anyways. Who fucks with Young Dolph? Taking a poll lmao.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Litty.

Sausage Party.

0

Ridiculous lmao. Absolutely speechless. Like wtf just happened haha. I thought this was a kids movie. Soooooo wrong haha. I legit had to check the rating of this movie like 5 min in. Yup Rated R. The dude next to me who was seriously an older man seeing it solo dolo, shout out to him, I saw him reach in his pocket to check the rating too lmao like 10 min after me.

But I guess what do you expect from Seth Rogen. Homeboy is lit af haha, literally. It was a cartoon, so in my mind, how bad could it be. Man. This was like sooooo explicit haha like crossing the boundary into porn. JK. Not really. I’m just awkward when it comes to sex in public lmao. This shit was fucking sexual man.

And perverted. Yet somehow genius. Haha honestly it was super fucking creative and well-made. To me at least haha. So much attention to detail and the jokes were extremely clever. I hate to say I recommend it bc homie hated it lmao. It made me sad. I didn’t LOVE it. But thought it was very different and interesting. Entertaining to say the least.

The IMDB plot gave you nothing, so here’s Wiki: Life is good for all the food items that occupy the shelves at the local supermarket. Frank (Seth Rogen) the sausage, Brenda (Kristen Wiig) the hot dog bun, Teresa Taco and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) can’t wait to go home with a happy customer. Soon, their world comes crashing down as poor Frank learns the horrifying truth that he will eventually become a meal. After warning his pals about their similar fate, the panicked perishables devise a plan to escape from their human enemies.

It’s literally the from the perspective of all the groceries in the store lmao. The whole time, I was trying to understand the life message. I think it’s just, this world is a fucked up place haha. Which Seth actually says verbatim in the film.

Shouts out to my best fran for coming though haha. I missed him so much. We met up at AMC Mercado 20 in Santa Clara, which is old stomping grounds. Hella used to hit that plaza up for lunch during King’s Academy days. Now there’s a Krispy Kreme. It’s lit fam. We hit the 9:20pm showing. Smh I moved the time up for my hg who bailed haha. I had hella returns at the mall I had to do.

Valley Fair is so lit man. They got ping pong tables just chillin. Like WHAT haha. But they also changed so much shit I couldn’t find anything.

I only got to one store. Victoria’s Secret was legit the spot to be. Literally the line for the cash register was out the door. Tf. It went by fairly quick though. The cashier lady was giving me SO much shit for returning without a receipt. I was like bruh, what’s it to you? Anyways, that was the only spot I could hit bc I had to dip.

We got lit. It was lit. Which is why I’m sad he didn’t like it lmao. But I soooo get it. The movie was honestly ridiculous haha. So much sex man haha. Just prepare yourself if you’re gonna go. And def blaze it. I was supposed to see it with my bro bro so I’m glad I dodged that bullet lmao.

I worked all day and then went to my dad’s person for one of those painful Asian massages. I wouldn’t even call it a massage haha just pain. Felt so sick at one point from not sleeping. I haven’t pulled an all-nighter in so long. Was so much more stronger in HS haha getting weaker as I get older. HALP.

Life.

TRACK OF THE DAY: SremmLife 2 dropped. These boys are NUTS.

Russ.

IMG_2126

Wow. I was too upset last night to write this haha. Idk if you guys notice, I usually write my reviews the night of. But man, shit had me weak yday haha.

ANYWAYS. Living off no sleep. Well maybe an hour or two. I decided to last minute hitch a ride home for the weekend. Got an Uber around 4am to go to Porter Ranch to meet my homeboy who was driving. The plan was to dip at 7am. Shout out to him for accommodating me last minute. Me and my big ass suitcase :/. I fucked up. I had no other bags. That shit was empty too I just had no smaller luggage. SMH.

My Uber driver was dope we talked about Hip Hop the entire time haha. I’ve never gotten an Uber that late… it’s crazy they’re around the clock. But anywho. Porter Ranch is fucking nice. Like wow the houses were beautiful I was like DANG MY BAD. Literally him and his 2 homies were up chillin bc they got turnt haha. They just DJed in Little Tokyo so we were just blazing. All of a sudden his friend goes, “wait, let’s leave.” I was like YAS. I fucks with you lmao. I was so d to dip. Weed makes me awake af and there was no way I could crash at 5am.

So we hit the road. I really felt so bad my luggage barely fit in the whip. It was a tight squeeze fasho. They were so fucking nice though. Bay kids are legit the shit haha. And we listened to lit music the entire ride. At first the kid did NOT let me sleep. I was so sad haha. I brought my airplane neck pillow and everything like I was so ready to PTFO haha so sad.

Anyways it’s weird being home, but I fucking love it. Just posted working rn but I got a busy day ahead. I love Sunnyvale though man. Makes me smile. Trying really hard to be civil with my mama but it’s not that easy.

Okay back to last night. The day started off with a beautiful root canal. Cried like a little bitch, but at least the pain went away. I’ve been out of commission man. Some shit went down Wednesday night that had me super fucked up in my head mentally. I need yoga. Sigh but can’t sneak in here haha.

I missed our music meeting. But met up with my crew at The Melt on Sunset for a Khleo Thomas event. If you don’t know, it’s a grilled cheese spot. And Khleo is Zero from Holes who is now rapping haha. No lie though, the event turned SO ratchet. They rented out the pool in the back and bitches were twerking. I was down for the cause man haha. If you saw my Snaps, you knew. Hella people hopped in the pool too. I was like WHAT haha. Shit sounds mad uncomfortable after haha and during. It was getting nippy out.

Afterwards I convinced my girl to go see Russ at El Rey. He started out with his hit single What They Want. She was an instant fan. He’s cute too. My homeboy works for Columbia Records who Russ just signed to, and guaranteed and interview with him after. He’s been independent for years so that was interesting. Low key the only reason I was down was to get the exclusive. I fuck with Russ but I was so tired. And hungry. Vicious combo.

I brought my other hg for my plus one. She’s super dope and down with dope music. His set was kinda long. He played from like 10:15 to 11:45. His fan base is unreal though. I’m talking… one race lmao. Middle Eastern and Hispanic. Super sold out show though. So I’m sitting here super lit for this dude, only to be completely chewed out after.

Note, he sold out like every show on his tour. And wears the appropriate jersey for each city. Ew to the Lakers but super dope how he does that. He’s been rapping for like 11 years and has a DIY mentality. Also learned he was heartbroken tn and puts his feelings in his music. Drake status.

Earlier that day, my homie hit me and asked DX to unblock Russ on Twitter, which I thought was fucking weird. When my boss checked, he wasn’t. So I thought that was that. But nope. Afterward, he legit went OFF when we met up with him backstage. Saying FUCK HIPHOPDX, blase blase. I was in shock. I’ve never met an artist who hated the site, let alone, hated haha. He completely aligned me with them, which I didn’t appreciate. As if I had something to do with the past.

No homie, I had nothing to do with whatever encounter you had with DX. That’s over now can we move forward with the interview? Nope. He pulled up emails on his phone from us from last year and 2014. It was a little extra but he was fucking pissed. I took it a little personal but I’m over it now. Legit if an artist is gonna act petty like that, I feel bad for him. We are only here to help him out. He’s prob just so into himself he feels like he’s made it.

Sucks though. The show was lit. It was sad af. I said hi to Snow Tha Product who was chilling in the back, hellllla low key. She barely remembered me lmao so sad. I be like that with people though…

Wow life is crazy. Just wanna hide under a rock like Patrick from Spongebob. Straight up.

Hiding bye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: He’s so dope.

Nerve.

0

You guys. This movie was fucking great. Nerve starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco, and MGK, bae haha. Jk. I used to think he was hot but he’s really intense to me now lmao. I definitely had James Franco instead of Dave up there lmao thank you Google. I think it’s James’ little bro, and they look exactly like each other haha. Emma Roberts is bae though. Just look how cute they are in the pic haha.

Just right off the bat gonna say I highly recommend this movie. It’s short, a little over an hour 30, but it’s epic. I really enjoyed it, and perfect with all the bullshit happening in my life rn haha. Real talk tho. Not only did I technically lose my job, but I got a fucking $363 handicapped parking ticket today. LIKE WHY. I mean, I know why, I take full responsibility, it’s my fault. But it had to happen rn. In the midst of my life crashing down in front of my eyes haha. Damn. Not even trynta be dramatic but the stars are NOT aligning rn.

Anyways. After literally the most painful dentist apt, I needed Starbucks. Literally go to my go-to shop down the street from me. I usually post up in this spot in the back no problem. As I’m pulling out this lady runs up on me with a ticket. I was like WHAT. Look up and see this half bent handicapped sign. The paint on the ground was faded too. I asked her what the damage was because she wasn’t budging, thinking it would be 90 bucks. Nope. 4 times that amount. I officially gave up at that point. Cried my way back to my apt. Literally gonna fight this. If I have to show up to rags in court, I’ma fight this shit. Not cool.

Okay back to the film haha. Me and my 2 hgs hit up AMC Century City 15 at 7:20pm. I love them. We all really liked the movie. SO IT’S NOT JUST ME THAT LIKED IT. Lmao my one hg keeps saying I like everything and it’s getting to me. I got out of Core Power Yoga at 7pm and GPS said it would take 20 minutes. Just taking a moment to complain about LA traffic bc that shit normally would take 5 minutes. Okay maybe 7.

Anyways. We got in right when the movie started. 20 min previews at AMC Theaters guys remember that haha. The best part is I had no idea what it was about, and left so satisfied haha. It got pretty good reviews too. I’ma give you the full Rotten Tomatoes plot cause it’ll explain it best.

Industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico, has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition partnered with a mysterious stranger, the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.

That plot was a little too complex. Bascically, it’s a game on-line and it ends up being SO nuts haha. Like truth or dare, without the truth haha literally. I seriously would love that shit. I’m an adrenaline junkie. Not sure if it’s a good thing. When I was in therapy, I was told it’s a red flag. Meep. But this movie has a lot of emotions haha. Go go go.

I hate my life rn haha. My tooth hurts and I’m doing laundry. Thankful though… to be alive? (Meep.)

TRACK OF THE DAY: Straight fire.

Suicide Squad.

0

Yo, Suicide Squad was beyond lit. I seriously fucking loved it, so much that I clapped at the end lmao like a basic bitch. The crazy thing is, so many people were talking shit about it. Not talked shit, but like weren’t pleased. I’m just like bruh, quit being so critical haha. It was legit dope af.

They said it was all over the place, which is true. The story was a bit confusing, and me and my bro walked in 10 min late, but you know what, get over it haha. From a film standpoint, people were hating. But the movie was so good. It was action and drama the entire time. The cast was dumb lit and Margot Robbie KILLED it as Harley Quinn. My spirit animal. I literally loved everything she said haha. Like I lol-ed at this one part when the theater was silent haha.

Will Smith was raw too. And Jared Leto as The Joker. Holy shiiiii. So bomb. Overall just really fire. I highly recommend going if you haven’t already. This hype for this movie was insane, as it should be. The plot doesn’t really matter but here you go:

A secret government agency recruits a group of imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency, which inevitably leads to chaos.

I don’t wanna give anything away, just go see it haha. The soundtrack is amazing too. Shoutout to Kehlani’s new track on it. They literally dropped that during the PERFECT scene in the movie. Shoutout to the throwback Eminem they threw in there too.

Yo, I cried. Lmao. There were some emotional moments and I cried. Going through some shit rn and it really got to me. My bro was like you okay? I also was hella tired in the movie.  Started nodding out halfway through smh. It’s a little over 2 hours, but amazing throughout.

We hit the 4:10pm showing at The Grove. I had some old Nike shorts I never worn so I let my bro have the store credit. Pretty sure I got them from Lady Foot Locker LMAO. But damn we spent so much time getting my bro new running shoes and he just hit me he wants these others one. S M H. It was literally the reason we were late to the movie.

I had hella heads wanting to see it this weekend, but I wanted to go to yoga later so we just went. I needed yoga tn guys. I had a really rough day. So much anxiety. A dentist appointment from hell. I need another root canal 😦 No chill. Also idk what happened last night but I think I took too many sleeping pills cause I was fucked up this morning. I legit should not drive when I’m that tired. Ahhhhh. Reminded me of my internship days, shutting my eyes at red lights. So dangerous.

Anyways. The weekends go by way too fast. Just got a foot massage with my girl at Joy Foot Spa. Seriously needed and would choose that over a turn up ANY DAY.

Guess what guys, I’m not afraid of ants anymore lmao. They all over my room and I can kill them with my bare hands now. I used to be scared of them af haha. #adulting. But yo. These ants are killing my vibe so hard.

Came home and my roomie loved the movie also. She goes “how many people are gonna be Harley Quinn for Halloween this year.” SO TRU. Speaking of TRUUUUU, 2 Chainz mixtape is fire. Go hear that ish.
