ZILLAKAMI – NOT WORTH IT

ZILLAKAMI IS BACK WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “NOT WORTH IT”

WATCH HERE

Listen to “Not Worth It:” HERE

ZillaKami of City Morgue shares a rock-driven new single and video entitled “Not Worth It” via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records. The guitar-laden track shows another side of the dynamic New York disruptor. Distortion wraps around a glitchy beat as he flexes his falsetto between moments of incisive introspective reflection, “Everybody loves me, but I don’t deserve it.” As always, his words cut deep. While in the music video, ZillaKami’s rock essence shines in a crew of moshers swarming a skate park.

It arrives on the heels of “FROSTY” which attracted critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, XXL named it among “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” while HotNewHipHop christened him “one of the earliest and most creative members of the emo-rap wave.” It has gathered 3.2 million Spotify streams and counting and 2.1 million views on the haunting Here.

Dropped earlier this summer, “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] generated north of 10 million streams and 2 million YouTube views on the static audio. This release garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami’s dark sound and Uzi Vert’s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.”

Prior, “CHAINS” posted up 2.6 million Spotify streams and 2.9 million views on the explosive Here. HotNewHipHop fittingly described it as “a hard-hitting, head-banging anthem.”

ZillaKami might be rap and rock’s worst nightmare come true in the best way. He defiantly devours guitar-backed beats without one f*ck given. As one-half of City Morgue with partner-in grime SosMula, he has toppled charts, sold-out shows, and scared the shit out of anybody with a conscience. In 2019, the group’s second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, held multiple charts hostage, seizing the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The legendary Mike Dean jumped aboard as Executive Producer of the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, the 2020 follow-up TOXIC BOOGALOO EP scored #96 on the Billboard Top 200, #9 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #13 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart, and #4 on the Nielsen Music Digital Albums Chart. Not to mention, they’ve pulled in 100 million-plus streams and 100 million-plus views to date. ZillaKami is a rare talent who is seamlessly rising to the ranks of major artists such as Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump God, with whom he recently collaborated. He’s a shape-shifting sonic force with an unbreakable grip on rap and rock that’s ready to bleed like never before on his 2021 solo debut.

ZILLAKAMI – FROSTY

ZillaKami of City Morgue reveals a haunting and melodic new single and music video “FROSTY” via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records

On the track, ZillaKami’s chilling harmonies puncture an airy clean guitar riff as he declares, “Hello depression, I hear your message.” The accompanying video translates this anxiety and darkness on-screen. Rolling through a slasher flick-style suburb, sadness manifests as a dark figure pushing ZillaKami in a shopping cart as he watches his girl from outside of her bedroom window. Hand covered in blood; he ultimately emerges from this nightmare stronger.

His most recent solo single “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] has already generated north of 6 million streams and 1.9 million YouTube views on the static audio. Right out of the gate, it garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami’s dark sound and Uzi Vert’s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.

Brian Taborda x Artwork

My name is Brian Taborda. I am a 24-year-old with an affinity for putting pen to paper and creating magic. Ever since I was a child I’ve always found myself drawn to drawing. As the years went by, I narrowed my artistic focus and began honing my skills as a cartoonist. Growing up, I always admired the artwork when I would watch my favorite cartoons on T.V. I chose to pursue this style because I was attracted to the freedom that this genre of art offered. Cartoons tend to be funny and ironic. Cartoons are one of the oldest forms of animated entertainment and, despite technological advancement, cartoons have maintained the classic and simplistic design elements that have set the style apart from other forms of artistic expression. These last few years, the political and economical climate in my home country of Venezuela has worsened tremendously. The present situation has motivated me to further develop my illustration skills. I know that if I improve, I will be able to achieve whatever I set my mind to. Choosing to focus on my art means working for commission so that I can earn enough money to escape this socialist dictatorship in Venezuela. I’ve been able to work towards fulfilling my dreams because of the the support that I receive from my family, my girlfriend and my friends. I specialize a style of cartoon illustration that was popular in the 1930’s, however, I like to add a bit of an “underground” or “urban” vibe to the final products. I work primarily using Adobe Illustrator. I typically use the brush and pen tools and draw with the mouse. I hope to one day illustrate using more modern tools but, since the economy of my country is so bad, I can’t afford the proper equipment so I have to use what I have. Fans of my art can look forward to seeing my name agin in the future future as I hope to, one day, release my own clothing line, with stickers, skateboards, etc. that will have my illustrations on them. Of course, I would keep on doing commissions of my drawing for clients who ware interested. My goal is to get more people to start loving and appreciating cartoons, especially the older ones that were the pioneers of this timeless genre. They are the base of everything we have now animation wise.

Did you catch that? Keanu Reeves surfed a motorcycle during the Big Game

If you watched the Big Game, you probably saw that Squarespace ran its fifth consecutive Super Bowl ad. This time around, we tapped actor Keanu Reeves: action star and motorcycle enthusiast who has been running his motorcycle company through Squarespace since 2015.

The ad, which features Keanu performing a badass motorcycle-surfing stunt in the middle of a desert, encourages viewers to go out and “make it happen.” And yes, he really performed the stunt himself.

Notable Appearance from Entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West

E!’s inspirational transformation series Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian returns for season two on Sunday, January 7th at 10 pm ET/PT.   With the help of model and TV personality Khloé Kardashian, author of the New York Times bestselling book “Strong Looks Better Naked,” and her team of fitness, style and beauty experts, participants get the individualized help and encouragement to transform into the person they always dreamed of becoming inside and out.

During this eight-episode season, famous celebs stop by to provide advice and tough love, including pop-culture icon Kim Kardashian West. For a full list of the participants, before photos, and what has inspired them to make a change, please visit http://eonli.ne/2xyk7hC, and for a sneak peek of the series visit: http://eonli.ne/2y9ueKG. This original unscripted series is produced by Khlomoney Entertainment, Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate and Ryan Seacrest Productions.  Eli Frankel, Khloé Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Ryan Seacrest and Larissa Matsson serve as executive producers.

This season, 17 men and women commit to a physically and emotionally challenging journey to prove to themselves and those who have been negative forces in their lives that they’re worthy of love and respect. People from all walks of life confront their past, present, and future and reveal what has brought them to this pivotal point in their lives. Whether these men and women have experienced bullying, are trying to mend relationships, or facing any other tough challenges, Khloé – who has overcome her own body issues – is there to help and will meet and check in with the participants throughout their entire process.

Khloé personally gets to know them, finds out what has broken them down, and gives them the tools they need to build themselves back up. From an honorably discharged military veteran struggling with the loss of his identity to newlyweds who want to get healthy before starting a family, each episode will feature everyday people tackling what’s holding them back from being the best they can be. However, even with the best intentions, not every journey is smooth, and not everyone makes it across the finish line.

Hilary Knight x The Red Bulletin

(Article Courtesy of The Red Bulletin)

Hilary Knight is leading the charge for equitable pay for U.S. women’s hockey. The fiery forward explains the importance of fighting battles for future generations.

Outside in Tampa it’s 98 degrees with nearly 100 percent humidity, but inside the Florida Hospital Center Ice hockey arena, it’s an alternate dimension. The air is crisp, with enough bite that tiny plumes of vapor appear with every exhale of breath. The entire rink reverberates as Hilary Knight slams puck after puck against the wall. You can tell she’s a pro.

At 28, Knight is arguably the best forward on the U.S. Women’s National Ice Hockey team — a team that captures the hearts of the country every four years during the Winter Olympics. But beyond her determination to score goals and earn medals, Knight has become a powerful advocate for promoting gender equality and a strong female body image.

Earlier this year, Knight made waves across the sports world when she and her fellow teammates threatened to boycott the World Championships over inequitable pay. After a funding agreement was reached with USA Hockey and the boycott was lifted, Knight scored the winning goal in overtime against bitter rivals Canada in the World Championship finals. It was a huge victory for women’s hockey, but Knight says there’s still a lot of work to be done.
