Published

Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign have teamed up to make a song for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and released the music video for it today.

The track which is titled, “Shell Shocked,” was produced by Kill the Noise and Madsonik for the movie which comes out August 8th and is a playful mix between EDM and rap.

“[Paramount] heard about how big of a fan I was of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their whole legacy. I actually have Donatello tattooed on my leg, so when they asked me to do it, just being a fan and being a musician, it made sense,” Khalifa said in a press release for the song.

Check out the song below:

This is not the first time the Ninja Turtles have used rappers for their soundtrack. In 1991, Vanilla Ice dropped some “fresh” rhymes for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 movie.

Who do you think did a better job? Wiz and his crew or Vanilla Ice? Let us know in the comment section below.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
