  1. I worked through these on YouTube yesterday and while happy he’s released new music, and never knew he has those kinda vocals at his disposal, was a bit like, because it wasn’t new content and just a rework/cover type deal, didn’t feel overly fresh. Then I heard the End Title track and yeah, that ish is dooooope. His flow was silkier than ever IMO. Loving the tone and voice changes too.
  2. Damn Ted, you’ve been the most actively disappointed in Will not making music, then when he does, because it’s not quite the flavour you want, it’s an issue too calm down dude, it’s not that serious. This track is dope. Logics new age but with an old school twist and not a mumble rapper and Wills flow and content is somehow nostalgically fresh. Can’t hate on this in the slightest.
  3. Are we entering another Golden Era in Wills career, ala 2001-2008? He’s churning out projects with no real care for Oscars and music is flowing. 2019 alone will see Aladdin, Spies In Disguise, Gemini Man and Bad Boys 3 start filming, along with the second season of Cobra Kai, and thats all outside of music. It’s a great time to be a fan right now!
  4. It’s like I’ve heard you quote 1000 times about people hating on Will... ’ain’t got nothin nice to say, don’t say nothin’ Your own personal demographic on what is good music isn’t the definition or the rule. Im not a fan of Queen or Elvis, but I just don’t listen or comment on them. Same as I’m an Em fan but I rarely listen to anything post Eminem Show, aside from a handful of tracks and Recovery. I know how classic He’s the DJ is but I’d rather listen to Code Red, never seen a Star Wars film in my life, but love Fast and Furious. Never seen the Godfather, loved Lawless. Classics are defined by a large demographic regarding that specific thing highly. The minorities opinion doesn’t tarnish somethings classic status.
  5. I’ve never got this whole drama between what music was and now is. You like what you like and don’t listen to what you don’t like. Majority rules.... Brexit, Trump etc. If the majority ain’t interested in a new LL or Nas album, why would it be promoted mainstream? Is it a shame your favourite artists don’t get the air time you’d like? Sure.. for YOU! You pigeonhole a lot of albums, artists and songs etc based on your own tastes and what era you like most and almost don’t wanna even entertain that someone post 2000 could be as skilled. I challenge anyone of your favourite rappers to be able to produce the same kind of wordplay, imagery, flow and delivery that Eminem has his whole career, while also adapting to the change in audiences preferences and staying current.
  6. It’s terrible However, it’s current and new music which leads to different avenues so
  7. MMLP was a masterpiece. Em is a beast. They’re my 2 favourite rappers and couldn’t be more different. Contrast is key.
  8. Will just **** on the rap game and said ‘thanks for looking after hip hop, you did terribly, I’ll take it back now’

    Movement on Bad Boys III

    I thought Suicide Squad 2 started filming in July after Gemini Man. Busy man lol

    'Bright'

    The rushed feeling was the only reason I didn’t rate it 10/10. I think it would have been better suited as a series so the storyline could be developed and explained in more detail.

    Audience score is now at 91%. **** critics.

    'Bright'

    Watched it last night, thought it was brilliant. Wills best on screen chemistry since Tommy Lee Jones and a lot of hidden messages that can pertain to our lives now. I truly believe there’s a huge approach at this movie being about racism and prejudice. Is it Oscar worthy? No. Was it meant to be? Absolutely not. 8.5/10

    A lot of great, successful actors go into that stigma though. Morgan Freeman and Sam Jackson to be exact. Will is 50 nearly, he’s not aiming at the under 25s anymore, he’s aiming to be a better actor, which he is. You’ve gotta remember Will had some blockbusters on some pretty bad films, WWW, Hancock etc. He made bad movies while being successful in the box office, it’s just his roles aren’t blockbuster worthy. Netflix won’t give a damn about the critics if the public like and watch it, which seems to be the case.

    That’s not to say I always think he’s great, after Earth sucked and so did Will and Jaden in it lol

    I wouldn’t call a persons acting career dead when in the last 2 years he’s been nominated for a golden globe, starred in a top 10 grossing movie of 2016, that also won an Oscar, all be it for makeup. I’d say he’s not making the movies he used to so people are put off, but as an actor, he’s the best he’s ever been. Just strikes me that everyone thinks The Fresh Prince couldn’t possibly be an a grade actor.

    Anyone who listens to critics and makes a judgement based on them is a moron. They slammed Concussion, mainly based on the huge NFL following and not wanting the truth to be told. Will was impeccable and the movie was accurately brilliant in every sense it should have been. Will deserved every inch on that Golden Globe nod and should have been nominated for an Oscar. They slammed Suicide Squad, mainly because there’s a Hollywood vendetta against DC, they seem to be up Marvels rear end so much if they sneeze it’s coming out of Iron Mans nose. But, along with Margot, Will was the shining light from the movie. That rarely gets mentioned. They slammed Collateral Beauty, but again, Will was impeccable at becoming a father that’s lost his child and capturing the essence and emotion that father would be feeling. Every bit as good as he was in Pursuit of Happyness. It seems like Hollywood are canning these movies, or pigeon holing them because they don’t fit the criteria of an award winner. Casey Affleck swept the awards, Manchester by the Sea wasn’t a great movie, yet Casey won awards based on HIS performance. But even then, I fail to see how Denzel or Andrew Garfield weren’t front runners and winner for their performances in Fences and Hacksaw Ridge respectively. This is because critics aren’t FACTS, they are OPINIONS. F critics, F award shows, watch the film and make your own judgement and definitely stop being happy his movies can or critiquing them just because you want a new album. You’ll never enjoy them if you go in with other people’s opinions and negative thought of your own of where his career should be.
  17. I was man yeah. Me and the Mrs had a day and night there to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Was only in general admission though, bro.
  18. 24 years wait for it to be over in a few hours... I'd wait another 24 years to see it again... but, the come down is real lol
  19. Me and the other half are arriving afternoon, standard tickets and are staying at North Ocean hotel for the night.
  20. I just got general for me and the Mrs, saving for a house and wedding (if she says yes lol) so just glad to be there. Will be staying overnight though if there's an after party haha.
  21. It's not a vendetta against Will, it's just their terms. Some slip through the system, millions of videos uploaded each day, a few are gonna go undetected or you'll find restrictions rather than deletion (banned in certain countries etc). Besides, the majority of consumers who are responsible for the largest music sales weren't even born or old enough to comprehend music the last time Will released an album, as blunt as it is, outside of the confines of this forum and a splattering of a few other groups globally, no one would care if he made a new album.
  22. Since always. If you don't own the rights to it, you can't post it and even if you do, it'll just get removed.

    So Will isn't doing anything right now..

    A guy who's done countless charity and support work, has raised a family and held onto a poster marriage through everything, ignores rumours and still tries to uplift, all while trying to juggle 2 careers that for the most part, probably make both suffer. Works tirelessly but still makes sure the value of money is recognised and hasn't gone 'diva' about his riches since his bankruptcy. I would say Will Smith, of all celebrities, is one of very very few who DOESN'T take his career and life for granted. He makes one decision to put his music career on hold to be an actor and y'all wanna have his head on a stick and parade it around Philly for how he 'let you down'. Granted, he mentions music all the time, he did say of a tour and album, but jeez, how many of us have had plans to do something then something you value higher, is more important or you just change your mind? And as for criticising him for going on holiday, I think y'all consider him some kind of robot and forget he's a human.
