Old-School R&B Group The O'Jays Get Into a Political Groove

‘Brawl In Cell Block 99’: First Trailer & Vince Vaughn Talks S. Craig Zahler Thriller

Zahler has worked as screenwriter, cinematographer and animator — and he’s in a death metal band, Vaughn says. The director, who also wrote Brawl, penned original songs for the film including an R&B tune that The O’Jays perform in the movie, Vaughn tells me. “He’s a real artist who’s combining a lot of these talents that serve him well.”

Following his many visits to Gibraltar Maxi Priest has co-written a song about the Rock. During his time here a video was produced showing much of what Gibraltar has to offer as a tourism destination.

The Artist also held a concert in Gibraltar last year, which is featured in the video.

The song was an idea put forward by Maxi Priest himself and the video was produced by Wright Tech Media of Gibraltar, in co-operation with the Gibraltar Tourist Board.

Minister for Tourism, Gilbert Licudi, QC, said: “It is encouraging to see an artist like Maxi Priest having such an affinity for Gibraltar and seeing him produce a song for us. The video shows much of what this unique destination has to offer and the song will no doubt be very popular. Maxi Priest’s video is a fantastic marketing tool that showcases some of Gibraltar’s most popular sites in the context of the song. I must thank my colleague Samantha Sacramento, Minister for Housing and Equality for having taken the lead on this project during her time as Minister for Tourism.” #VisitGibraltar

Why Has This One Bassline Been Sampled Seventy Seven Times?

"What links Snoop Dogg, Hot Since 82, and William Pitt? No, it's not the possibility that the unlikely trio might find themselves tangled up in a particularly torturous Only Connect question. No, William Pitt's never appeared on Snoop's YouTube channel huffing on a joint with Seth Rogen and Chris Tarrant, and Hot Since 82's only connection to the pair of them is that his grandad's called Will, and he once tried to rap "Gin and Juice" at a student house party before collapsing from shame. What brings a balearic icon, everyone's favorite stoner, and a bloke I'm pretty sure lives on a permanently-sailed boat party just off the Croatian coast is Dennis Edwards, The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards' frontman."
