Mixtape: Onis – The Orientation

| December 29, 2011 | 1 Comment

I’ll let Onis himself explain this one:

What is “The Orientation?” It’s a beginning to a life long journey, geared towards sustaining an Onis(Honest) living. Capturing real life themes and situations, “The Orientation” offers something the regular Joe’s and Jane’s can relate and attach themselves to. “You know before every job or new stage in life, there’s an orientation or introductory period. This project is the prelude to what’s to come, an introduction. I want people to progress and grow with me on this path. It’s a lengthy road to ultimate success. I just want to provide real, good music along the way.”

Common’s Hell On Wheels Renewed For Second Season

| December 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

Common has eluded cancellation. The western drama he stars in, Hell On Wheels, that airs on AMC, was greenlit for a second season–a major feat in the ultra fickle world of television. I’ve still yet to watch it: these are my confessions.

Says PH

Fans of Common and his new show Hell on Wheels will surely be delighted to hear that it will be back on AMC for a second season.

The suspenseful western drama brought in an impressive 4.4 million viewers on its debut, which was the network’s second highest rated show behind The Walking Dead. Viewership has since slowed down, with 2 million viewers per episode, which was impressive enough to land it a second season.
