the black panther TRAILER was the number one united states trend less than five minutes after its release. when this movie is released next year (during black history month too!!!!) records are going to be shattered. this movie is going to change representation in film.
Holy Shit. We can’t believe we get to finally write this to you…RTJ3 IS READY!!!! After a straight year of work the next chapter in this madness is done. We’ll spare you too much talk but we will say this: thank you so much for making RUN THE JEWELS the most amazing experience either of us have had in our careers. We hope you feel the love and time we put in to this record and can’t wait to share it with you and see you out on the road. Whether you buy it, download it for free, steal it from your annoying cousin or hear it at a show, just know that we are eternally grateful for the love you’ve shown us. Thank you thank you thank you thank you.

Beyonce is honestly an icon. And I really do feel like MANY people hate on her just for the sake of hating.
Like can you imagine the drama behind the scenes that must have gone down between her team and the Superbowl organizers for her to perform “Formation” at Super bowl 50 on the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther party’s formation (1966) in the BAY AREA where they were founded? And her dancers did so in full Black Panther Party regalia to boot?! Talking about loving her negro nose in front of over 100 million people on live television! The Superbowl people probably wanted NOTHING to do with that, but she pushed it through and made such a powerful statement for BLACK people for the world to see.
This woman is a legend, and I feel so inspired by her bravery in her art. This is a moment that people are going to be talking about decades from now. Wiki articles, you name it. So amazing. Love her.
