With a unique style he is an inspiration to many. Tyler is a young entrepreneur with a network, record and clothing company. Tyler’s influence on music along with fashion in today’s culture has been very significant. Okonma has changed the music industry with his distinctive style of music.
Starting in 2011 with his first album Goblin, one of the singles in it put him on the map to increase approval from the rap audience. From his popular single “Yonkers” it was clear what kind of music Tyler was putting out, his music has a unique style of lyricism and expression.

The life of mac miller
When I first started to write article, it was an album review for Mac Millers fifth studio album Swimming.
But due to the news on Friday I decided to turn this into a tribute for the late Mac Miller. Mac always
loved rap music. He started making music when he was fifteen years old that was 2007. He didn’t blow
up until 2010. He continued to grow bigger after he was part of the 2011 XXL freshmen freestyle with
rappers like YG and Kendrick Lamar. When he passed away I saw many people around me I asked one of
my classmates how it made him feel and he stated, “It made me feel light headed and dizzy.” I saw
around me that a bunch of people were sad to see about his passing. Mac was a once in a lifetime
rapper it seemed to not only effect fans, his peers around him also seeming saddened by the news
Chance the Rapper and J Cole just to name a few now will be my review on Mac’s fifth and last Album
On Mac Millers fifth studio album Swimming is a huge change up from what people are used to coming
from Mac. Instead of his usual party music he showed that he could change his flows. After his DUI crash
charge, he had a lot on his mind resulting in a new type of album. The track Jet fuel proved that he can
attack. In his song Self Care he talks the crash saying, “That Mercedes drove me crazy, I was speeding”.
Rating 4/5 Release date 8/3/18

THEN AND NOW
By Ivan Duran
1990 It- the movie, adapted from the novel by Stephen King, is about how this small little town begins to experience disappearance of people. But for this small little town it isn’t anything new for them and they know there’s something wrong with the town. People know the town is cursed but they don’t bring it up or try to solve it or talk about it. But one day this kid named Bill is really sick and in bed and he has a little brother. He had made a boat made out of paper for his little brother and it was raining outside, so the little boy takes his boat for a sail. And as he does it falls into the drain and a clown appears and takes the little boy and he disappears. His big brother always wonders what happened to his little brother and figures it out.
The latest IT version, premiered in 2017. The main difference from the original film is it begins a little bit differently. The latest version begins with a disappearance of a person. At the scene there was a picture of the little boy that disappeared years ago the man who picked up recognized it. It was Bill's little brother who had disappeared a long time ago. In the 1990 version they fight the monster twice. Once when they were younger and again when they are older. The newer version of It, they only fight the clown once. After that the movie it ends, they defeat IT as kids but vow to return if IT returns.
The older movie is longer and less interesting. I prefer to watch the newer one cause the old one is very drawn out and is three hours. The question remains for both films, What is IT? Why does it plague this town?
Fortnite v Pub G
By Robert Regalado
Fortnite is a first person shooters game just like Pub G. You can compete with your friends or other online people. You can explore new weapons, gadgets, and vehicles. The only thing you can do different in Fortnite is you can build buildings and objects.
Considering 2017 may have been the year of battle royal and the genres popularity is showing no sign of slowing down in 2018. My honest opinion is that Pub G is better but there both very interesting and challenging.

Eminem Kamikaze Review
by Austin Brookhouser
When Eminem released this surprise album last month it kind of sent the Hip Hop world in a crazy daze he called everybody out from the rappers he doesn’t like also critics he felt like went like they went too hard on his last album revival he called out a lot of names from people like Lil Pump, Lil Xan, Lil Yachty. Right when Kamikaze dropped it went to the top of the charts. He called out Machine Gun Kelly on the track called “not alike”
The diss tracks
The beef started way back in 2011 when MGK who was 22 at the time he called Eminem’s daughter Hallie 16 at the time Hot. But was really started when MGK went on a song with Tech Nine and was throwing sneak disses at Eminem. So, he returned with his song not alike where he calls Kelly out. Then Kelly returned with his diss song named Rap Devil. Where he called Eminem a bully that couldn’t even take a joke. He once again brought up Eminem’s daughter Hallie and his Ex-wife Kim. Then two weeks later Eminem released his response called killshot. Where he uses a style a lot like What style MGK was using. Machine Gun Kelly said in a interview with the breakfast club in New York saying he wasn’t going to respond to killshot because it made Eminem so mad. When it comes to this back and forth between these two rappers I think Eminem won with just the one verse aimed at MGK in “not alike” I feel like Rap Devil was full of more playground insults and praises then really disses.
The Nun - Movie Review
By Austin Brookhouser
In the fifth entry in the Conjuring series the nun didn’t do anything well for the series that I feel like has been falling since the first one and I don’t see them getting better anytime soon. In this movie I found very few moments actually scary. They were more jump scares then actual built up scary moments. I think they rushed to finish and resulted in a lazier wrote script. The story shows the origin of the nun in an old church they build a way to contact beings from beyond the grave they come in contact with a demon they are able to hide it until one of the nuns kill themselves and takes over her body. In my opinion the story made no sense. Rating 2/5
