Jennifer Aniston as a stripper? Welcome to We’re the Millers, a comedy starring Jason Sudeikis, which has a peculiar plot. Sudeikis plays a small time drug dealer that strikes a lucrative deal, but he’s got to smuggle a “smidgen” of marijuana across Mexico borders.
To do so, he’s hired Aniston (a cheap stripper), a nerd kid from his building and a rebel teenage girl from around the way to turn into an average family that no one will suspect trafficking drugs into the U.S. From the looks of it, We’re The Millers is going to be a comedy to check when it hits theaters nationwide on August 9.

Stacked up against the rest of his catalog, Prince’s appearance on 3RDEYEGIRL might not live up to expectations but it still has elements from his classic albums. At this point in the game, there’s no hating on Prince either way. “Fixurlifeup” is an aggressive tune which throws plenty of darts at America, boy bands and everyone in the path and not in a disgruntled way, but it takes more of a “we want better for you” approach.
Plus, it’s catchy. Who wouldn’t want to yell “YOU NEED TO FIXURLIFEUP!” to someone if they really needed to? There’s plenty of folks that deserve it.

There’s simply no denying that the act of sampling has been an essential part of hip-hop as the years have passed. From the likes of MF Doom to the more industry-known Kanye West, many careers wouldn’t have been the same without our favorite artists heading into random record collections and finding those wonderful melodies to loop and re-arrange.
However, recent times have seen Brooklyn’s talented Menahan Street Band behind some of the biggest, and not so known singles in the industry. The group may only have two full-length releases since they started out in 2007, but the six-piece collective made up of guitars, bass, drums, organs, trumpets and saxophones have been sampled in a surprising amount of projects.
More recently, the band has been travelling across the world with Florida’s incredibly soulful Charles Bradley, after the singer and group worked together on Bradley’s sophomore album Victim Of Love earlier this year. As well as this, the New York band has also been part of an original recording with a young hip-hop artist that you will certainly be familiar with.
Follow us through several tracks that your favorite artist has sampled.
