The recently released Avengers
trailer beat the previous iTunes downloading record set by The Dark Knight Rises
. With 13,7 million downloads on the first day (!), it beat the upcoming Batman movie's previous record of 12,5 million. So at the moment the upcoming Marvel movie by Buffy-creator Joss Whedon should be seen as the most anticipated movie coming out this summer! Of course, the record will probably be beaten soon, either by the next The Dark Knight Rises
trailer or perhaps by a The Hobbit
I'm probably more psyched about the next The Dark Knight Rise
s out of the two, the only thing that really makes The Avengers
interesting is that Whedon is behind it. But I can't really see that many superhero-characters and actors crammed into a feature film work that well. And of course, Christopher Nolan usually comes up with pretty good stuff, and the ending of a trilogy is always interesting, though I personally liked Batman Begins
more than The Dark Knight

This record focuses on the fear of failing when it comes to our goals in life, and fighting tooth and nail to survive life's ills.
If your father performed alongside Funk & Soul legends like James Brown & Sam Cooke, and your older sibling was deep into Hip-Hop production, chances are being a product of your environment meant only one thing…
Following the path his family set before him, Chicago-based Hip-Hop artist Neak draws vivid verbal portraits which find inspiration in the spirit of 1980’s Hip-Hop & U.S. culture. The “War on Drugs,” failing Reaganomics, and increasing violence within poverty stricken areas only strengthened the resolve of the then fledgling Hip-Hop movement, and it’s this concept of perseverance and reclamation that guides Neak’s artistry.
Since 2010, Neak has released two volumes in his ’84 mixtape series (8000 total downloads), both of which are hailed as “underground classic[s] with an electric/soulful feeling, and rooted in the core of hip-hop." Currently Neak is fresh off a release of his newest project "Neak Rock," a Pete Rock tribute album presented by DJBooth.Net, Fake Shore Drive, Refined Hype, Prefix Mag & YNotMyDream; which has currently reached over 50,000 downloads and counting! Recently fresh from releasing his #illRaps Series (featuring artists such as Slot-A, Pugs Atomz, Sincerely Yours, Mike Schpitz, etc.) He is now currently working on his next project entitled, "Love Greater // The Prequel," with production from Slot-A, INTLMC, Rashid Hadee. This upcoming project will be presented/sponsored by DJBooth.Net, Earmilk, and Prefix Mag.
Naming Nas, Mos Def, Common, Lupe Fiasco, MF Doom, Elzhi, Jay-Z, etc. as his main lyrical influences, Neak preserves the aesthetics of real Hip-Hop; authenticity, originality, excellence all evoke a heartfelt emotion for listeners of his music. Neak is looking to tour in support of his "Love Greater // The Prequel" project; which is scheduled for release early 2012."
