J Ravage share “Great Terror” and “Garoozis” 

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Producer J Ravage is back with some new gems for us to rock with this weekend.

“Great Terror” is the first cut here and it’s made up of dark strings that sound like a scene from a fantasy movie. The trap drums are heavy as well and seamlessly blend with it.

The second cut titled “Garoozis” is a heavy 808-laden beat that hits hard from the start with it’s crunchy drums and layered texture. It’s quite energetic and memorable.

The second DC FanDome went down, and we got two new trailers for both Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League and Gotham Knights.

DC announced both games were in the works last year during the first-ever DC FanDome virtual event. Since then, we haven’t gotten much information about either title. Saturday (Oct.16), during the second installment of the web event that showcases all things DC Comics, we got two brand new trailers, but unfortunately, no gameplay.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League’s trailer gave us more insight into the upcoming game with players either teaming up with a friend or going it alone while taking control of Amanda Waller’s Task Force X. This version of the team of supervillains turned reluctant heroes will have players controlling either Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang.

Like the comics and movies, the villains have were freed from their cells and tasked with the mission to take down the Justice League, including their alpha target, Superman, who has is under the control of Brainiac. The new trailer revealed that players could look forward to battling The Flash, Green Lantern, and other members of the iconic superhero squad before eventually facing Brainiac himself.

The trailer used in-game footage but did not showcase any gameplay and was comprised of cut scenes from the highly-anticipated game.

That was also the same case for WB Montreal’s Gotham Knights as well. We saw gameplay footage of the game during the first DC FanDome event. This year that was not the case. Instead, we were treated to a story trailer featuring Gotham’s young heroes/vigilantes, Bat Girl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood. They are called into action after Batman is killed in an explosion and is part of his contingency plan in the event of his untimely death.

In this new trailer that now features the Penguin, we learn more about the Court of Owls, a secret society comprised of Gotham’s wealthiest families.

Gotham Knights got its wig pushed back, unfortunately. The development team stated they need “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players.” Based on the first gameplay footage we saw last year that did garner some criticism, we understand the decision, just a shame there was nothing to see this year.

Both Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League arrive in 2022. We have no clue what month. We expect to hear more information from Warner Bros games very soon.

After all the talk and teasing, the second trailer to Matt Reeves The Batman is finally here and yeah, it looks pretty damn good.

Yes, we know that Twilight star Robert Pattinson was a particularly interesting choice to don the cape and cow, but he continues to make believers of us as it’s looking like he may actually pull it off. In the trailer released today during DC’s Fandome, we find the Dark Knight taking the fight to a gang of clown faced criminals (a Joker appearance hasn’t been confirmed for this film), while hot on the tail of a seemingly scar faced Penguin (Colin Farrell).

Looking more like it features a Batman: Year One story arc, the Caped Crusader seems to be introducing himself to anyone unlucky enough to cross paths with him. All the while he’s getting woo’d by Catwoman herself, Zoe Kravitz. Though we don’t get much from The Riddler (Paul Dano), his voiceover work seems to suggest he’ll be playing an intricate part in the film’s plot. We can’t wait to see what kind of riddles he’ll be leaving behind for Batman to solve.

Check out the trailer to The Batman below and let us know if it’s looking like the bomb or a dud.

DaChonne Nicole releases a new single “Now You’re Gone” 

DaChonne Nicole is a leading R&B singer who recently released an exciting new single. The title of the new song is called “Now You’re Gone.” This song is very comparable to other great songs in the genre. When singing this song, Nicole oozes pure emotion and expresses the grief of the loss of a loved one. Along with expressive lyrics, the song has great composition and does it's genre proud. As a result, this song will have instant appeal to many fans of rhythm and blues music.

"Now You're Gone" is about a couple in a relationship for many years, who are now at a crossroads. It's where one person feels like the other is just going through the motions, no longer trying to work on the relationship, while the other feels they’ve put so much into the relationship and into the other person, that they’ve lost themselves in the process. Now both are forced to reassess themselves and their relationship. Not fun at all!

Part of what makes this a great song is it's composition. It has a very mellow and coherent composition that helps make the listener feel relaxed. While it is about losing a loved one and longing for their presence, the composition of the song doesn't feel that heavy, it is more mellow and sobering.

Along with having good composition, "Now You're Gone" has authentic lyrics as well. The lyrics are straight forward storytelling words which allows the listener to easily understand what is being expressed in the song. When singing the song DaChonne Nicole has a soft and clear voice which enhances the song's overall quality feel and power.

Brittany Renner has gained a reputation of sorts whether justified or not, and it appears that she’s leaning into the joke. a bit further than most are willing to accept. The popular Instagram model is currently visiting the campus of Jackson State University, and issued a grim warning to folks that they should “Hide your sons.”

Via a tweet shared on Friday, Renner, 29, shared a message that she arrived at Jackson State, writing, “Hey Jackson State! Hide your sons” complete with an image of herself smiling with the school in the background. Immediately, many on Twitter began their attempts to dress down Renner, especially after many are alleging she has a habit of grooming younger men for financial gain in the wake of her past relationship with NBA player, P.J. Washington.

Renner has been addressing the chatter around her supposed aims and doesn’t seem to be deterred by the comments of detractors, even telling one man to “shut up” in response to her initial jab. As it stands, Brittany Renner seemingly could care less what the world thinks and the reactions from Twitter can be viewed below.

Recording Artist Tanya Nolan Shares Her Passion for R&B Music 

By Giavanna Foster

R&B music continues to rise in its position as a mainstream genre of choice in today's music market. When it comes to live concerts and streaming. H.E.R., Charlie Wilson, Anthony Hamilton, and Leela James are among the major artists enjoying the fruits of their musical creativity in the key of rhythm and blues. At the same time, there are indie artists who are also bringing the heat with a contemporary flavor complete with emotional authenticity and colorful performance keeping true to the roots of R&B.

R&B singer/songwriter Tanya Nolan is one such artist who is making a name for herself on the R&B stage. In an interview on ABC news this year, Tanya Nolan is noted as a singer, songwriter and producer of solid R&B music that is consistently landing on the major music charts.

Born in the city of Galveston, Tanya Nolan developed her singing skills performing on the club scene starting at the age of 15. Today she continues to find inspiration from writing music and lyrics that mirror life experiences.

Karras drops new EP ‘Owls’ 

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

The midwestern alternative rapper who goes by the moniker Karras caught our eas with his new project entitled Owls. The body of work is a compilation of different versions of his single Owls which is a dark cinematic track that explores the concept of lack of privacy and underhanded surveillance by the government and corporations who seek to keep tabs on its citizens. The track produced by Stony D, has a gloomy aesthetic that fits Karras’ fiery flow and in-depth lyrical style riddled with vivid imagery and thought-provoking lines.

The rest of the project sees him working with a wide array of producers who reimagine the track in their own twisted image. The first one is the off-kilter “Owls (Psico Mix)” made up of solemn strings, dark synths, and punchy drum grooves. The “Owls (RaccoBeats Mix)” goes into a whole different zone with its bass-heavy and choppy aesthetic. 42BUZZ delivers two versions for the project with the first one being extremely gloomy with spaced-out soundscapes and trip-hop drums and the other has an atmospheric texture that sounds like a clip from a sci-fi flick. The final version comes from YungLxrd who ramps up the energy with suspenseful and layered pads and thick leads that slowly draw listeners into the mix.

Get “Owls” on SoundCloudSpotify.

Karras is a Midwestern alternative rapper whose singular style channels the grit of classic hip-hop through the lens of his off-kilter, surreal consciousness. With his feet firmly planted in two worlds, he merges the mystical and material, luring the listener into his lucid fever dream. Following the release of his debut album Karrasmatic on Nov. 27, 2020, Karras has been releasing a new single each and every month.
