Cn2M6rSVMAAv58F

Fresh off the release of his biggest project to date, fo(u)r, which dropped in April of 2016, Femdot is already back with another new EP — thr(we). As you can see, Fem is keeping the themes heavy, as these titles are related and surely have a deeper meaning.  U, we, me, him, her, us. What does he has up his sleeve next?

Well, on 7/26 he’s blessing us with more new music in the form of his new EP. I can attest that one of the four tracks on thr(we) is a certified hit: “Get Rich Forever.” I caught Fem playing it live in Denver and I stalked him for it ever since. It’s next level.

For now, though, peep the track list and cover art. See you next week for the full course.

Common To Produce ‘Cooley High’ Remake

Screen Shot 2016-07-20 at 12.58.55 PM

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Common is set to co-produce a remake of the 1975 Chicago motion picture, Cooley High. The original was an undisputed classic centered around a group of high school teenagers and the trials and tribulations of the Chicago landscape of the 60s. The original was made for $750,000 and grossed an astounding $13 million in theaters. I guess Chicago native Com Sense thought it was only right to green light a remake.

EXCLUSIVE: Cooley High has been set for a remake at MGM with DeVon Franklin, Common and Tony Krantz partnering on the seminal 1975 coming-of-age drama. Seth Rosenfeld will write the script. Set in 1960s Chicago and focused on a group of high school pals with big dreams of getting out of the South Side, Cooley High fell in with a series of terrific coming-of-age films that included American Graffiti, The Lords Of Flatbush and The Wanderers.
