The Revolution may not be televised, but @theRevEffect will be heard loud and clear in this brand new weekly podcast.
The free to stream podcast featuring Radio Rob, Paris Haven, Zeus Wilson and Reed Space Alumnus Not Brint, sees the four young men from New York breaking down the latest in music, film, news, and all other issues near and dear to their heart. Although they all hail from the uptown area, Rob, Zeus, Paris & Brint all have quite different takes on each topic. The most fascinating part (aside from all of the information and hijinks that ensues) is how four creatives from diverse backgrounds can sit down and cover a wide spectrum of discussions while maintaining a distinctly unified voice along the way. Once the approximately 45-minute first episode comes to an end, rest assured you’ll be back for more EVERY TUESDAY afternoon. Listeners & Reeders alike may not find a more organic weekly listening experience anywhere once they check out what these recent college graduates have been supplying. Experience episode one of the Rev Effect here, and don’t forget to join in on the conversation by e-mailing email@example.com.

Today, Artist/Songwriter @RentMoneyDue unleashes an impressive debut entitled “Do the Most” featuring Toronto producer and singer, Yonatan Watts. The cinematic visual follows a day in the life of two youths as they balance their primal urges with the harsh realities of living in an American ghetto. Written by Rent Money and shot entirely in Harlem by Brooklyn Director Jawney Qvest, who has worked with G4Shi, Vinny Cha$e and Artsy Mag in the past, “Do the Most” is an aggressive offering from the Little Rock, AR native, now claiming New York City as home.
“Do the Most” is the first installment in the Rent Money #1STAND15TH content series which will feature bi-monthly new releases exclusively at rentmoneydue.com. Rent Money will release an as yet untitled debut project in First Quarter 2017 and will be featured on the upcoming $5 Dollar Bill show October 10, 2016 at Piano’s (LES) with frequent collaborator, BXHXLD. See the unique music experience as captured directly above the brief description of the artist, Rent Money.
As of today, Usain Bolt, the man said to have been struck by lightning, has cemented himself in the Olympic record books as the fastest man ever. Bolt has not lost a single running event in the Rio Olympics, yet he only knows how to smile and dance once he steps onto the track. The Jamaican-runner definitely came a long way though. As this cell-shaded animation by Gatorade shows, there was a time when Bolt wasn’t happy to be a competitor, but a valuable conversation with his mother made all the difference. Check out the story of Usain Bolt’s journey from a young speedster to a world-wide phenomenon here.
Harlem World, stand up! Uptown’s greatest hero since Killa Cam arrives on the small screen as Netflix gets set to unveil the entire season on September 30th. In the live-action trailer, we see ex-con turned scientific experiment, Luke Cage fighting crime and protecting the City of New York from the tyranny of a gang leader in nothing but a hoodie. Though fans of the “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones” shows got a glimpse of Luke’s might, they’ll get a better look at his unmatched physique and bulletproof exterior this Fall. Check out the full trailer of Harlem’s hero here.
Another one. @rstrinidad hasn’t let up on the gas at all this summer, but what else would we expect from the @AsWeArrive DJ? This PS: Wednesday a bunch of sick track flips like Skrillex’s remix of “Show Me Love,” and Austin Lebron’s take on the classic “Lady (Hear Me Tonight).” The OVO Sound crew gets shown love on this tape too thanks to Yung Anh’s Redo of PartyNextDoor’s “Persian Rugs” and Roy Woods’ single “Why” off of his latest album ‘Waking At Dawn.’ Get over the midweek hump and check out the latest entry in RZÁL’s “PS” series here. Also, RSVP to catch RZÁL and the @Kou.steau homies spinning Thursday night at @KinfolkEvents!
“Vacation Mode” is about to be in full effect! Sure, you may have your fun in the sun and visit your favorite amusement parks, but what’s a vacation without getting some well deserved R&R? If you want to see how others get down in the summer time, look no further than @RoyWoods’ new video for his dancehall single, “Gwan Big Up Urself” where the Canadian-singer takes us on a trip to the Caribbean to dance, eat, and have a good time. Check out the island vibes in the music video here.
Whoever came up with this concept either got a raise or got fired. Regardless of their employment status they gave us a pretty entertaining commercial depicting the life of a supporting cast member. Check out the ad here to see what ties Draymond Green, Horace Grant and Destiny’s Child together.
From the FIFA World Cup to the Baseball World Classic, and even the FIBA World Cup, there’s a sense of patriotism that sweeps over many a nation. Yet, there is not a single international competition that can replicate the fever-like national pride that strikes the heart of the entire globe as the Olympics do every four years–and the sponsors always take notice! Always known for their smooth approach to ads, United Airlines features members of the United States National Olympic team rowing, sprinting, pole vaulting, fencing and even swimming their way on board as they get set for the games in Rio de Janiero.
