Otto Releases 80’s-inspired, Nostalgic Pop Debut EP “Still Picture You”

Earnestness is a quality we often lose touch with as we grow up. For Otto, earnestness is a defining characteristic. With the release of their debut EP “Still Picture You,” Otto aims to capture the candid thoughts and feelings of someone falling in and then out of love – a young soul navigating the changes that accompany that journey. With energetic, 80’s inspired instrumentals and candid lyricism, Otto captures the nostalgic essence of the John Hughes era with a modern, alternative twist.

“Still Picture You” was written virtually, growing up over the airwaves in online songwriting sessions in the winter of 2020. The first time the band members were all in the same room at the same time wasn’t until March the next year, to record their project in Nashville, TN. The resulting collection of songs follows the creative evolution of the band’s personality and individual influences over the year they spent getting to know each other virtually, and brings together groovy, rhythmic guitar riffs, anthemic arpeggiation, and a Tears-For-Fears-esque nostalgia for an electronic synth.

Kendrick Lamar’s Houston Blockade, ‘Not Like Us’ Allegedly Banned from Local Hotspots

Kendrick Lamar

The decade-long feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar has reached new heights, marked by a series of scathing diss tracks that have captivated fans worldwide. It all began with “Like That,” followed by “Push-Ups,” and escalated with “Euphoria.” However, the night of May 3rd was unforgettable, as “Family Matters” sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community, only for “Meet The Grahams” to leave everyone stunned.

The day after this historic showdown, Kendrick Lamar dropped another bombshell with “Not Like Us.” This track quickly became the anthem of their beef, holding the number-one spot globally for weeks. Yet, despite its immense popularity, Houston seems to be a notable exception. Reports suggest that several establishments in the city have allegedly banned “Not Like Us.”

The reasons behind this apparent ban remain unclear, but speculation points toward Drake’s influence. Drake, known for his frequent visits to Houston and ties to local mogul J Prince, could potentially sway such decisions. However, no concrete evidence supports these claims. DJs in Texas, beware—playing “Not Like Us” might not go down well.

What do you think about this situation? Is Drake pulling the strings behind the scenes? How do you feel about Houston clubs acting as if this track doesn’t exist?

Soulja Boy Dodges $10M Bullet in Assault Case Linked to Alleged Miscarriage

Soulja Boy

Soulja Boy is breathing a sigh of relief after a major win in a long-standing legal battle. The rapper, known for his hit “Crank That,” was on the hook for a $10 million lawsuit filed by a woman identified as Jane Doe. The lawsuit, which dates back to 2021, accused Soulja Boy of sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress, claiming the incident led to a miscarriage in 2015.

Doe’s allegations painted a disturbing picture, asserting that a simple conversation with Soulja Boy quickly turned violent. According to her, the rapper became irate, punching her in the face and chest, and then kicking her in the stomach after she fell to the ground. These actions, she claimed, resulted in her miscarriage.

The hefty lawsuit sought $5 million for pain and suffering and another $5 million for emotional distress. However, in a surprising turn of events, Soulja Boy managed to avoid the massive payout by attending a deposition before the end of the month. During this deposition, he denied all the accusations, and it was revealed that Doe’s claim that he hadn’t attended a deposition was false.

With this development, Soulja Boy has successfully dodged the $10 million judgement. What are your thoughts on this outcome? Does it cast doubt on Jane Doe’s accusations, or does it highlight flaws in the legal process? Share your opinions in the comments, and stay tuned to Honk Magazine for the latest updates on Soulja Boy and other music industry news.
