Outgoing Film Executive Alexander Tang combs through decades of hip hop music to bring forth a list of the top 10 realest moments in the genre. The selected music exemplifies the diversity of the genre and embodies a certain depth of thought.
Remember mixtapes? Crimson Arts does. Welcome to our biweekly feature, where we create mixtapes for every emotion and every season—for breakups, breakdowns, and breakdancing. This week our mixtape is dedicated to pop-punk and teen angst.
The film “Conspiracy,” written by Mandel, dramatizes the top-secret 1942 Wannsee Conference, where 15 Nazi officials developed the Final Solution. Before the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club premieres an adaptation of the film written by Mandel, The Crimson sat down with the scribe for an interview about the film and the production.
The creative forces behind the "Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy," Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost, sat down with the Crimson to discuss the final piece of the trilogy, "The World's End." Their answers touch upon thematic links within the trilogy, as well as the narrative of the latest film.
Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar regaled Governors Ball with hits from his "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" album, including "Poetic Justice" and "Swimming Pools (Drank)."
Kanye West rocked Governors Ball with songs from his just-released album "Yeezus," opening with a feral rendition of "Black Skinhead."
“Yeezus” is Kanye at his best, boldest, least commercial, and above all, most sincere. West has always been capable of channeling this charismatic intensity into his music, and his albums demand attention much the way the man himself does.
Subtlety has never been a strong suit of Fall Out Boy’s, but to accuse them of insincerity would be a mistake. An immediate salvo of strings on the opening track of the album removes any doubt as to the depth of Fall Out Boy’s conviction that they are indeed the saviors of rock and roll.
Tyler delves fearlessly into himself with numerous, conflicted alter-egos and spins his deepest worries into grand schemes, creating songs that strike on levels both low and lofty. Tyler uses his characters to create tension and drama that he mines to great effect on songs like “IFHY.”
Growing up felt like a series of endings that I was never quite ready for. I would leave one school for another, I would leave some friends for others, or I would leave one identity for another. I remember when I finally understood what the phrase “Our Endless Numbered Days” meant.
Before Fall Out Boy saves its genre, two emotionally overwrought Arts writers debate which of the band's earlier albums reigns supreme.
New tracks from Fall Out Boy, Toro y Moi, and Justin Timberlake
Rocky has more than enough panache to carry his first full-length to success, but the album suffers from a lack of writing fundamentals.
In which I demonstrate my supreme inability to come up with a real list.
