Hurt Everybody - Just A Spirit With An Appetite (Afterlife)

Check out Hurt Everybody’s latest song, “Just a Soul with an Appetite (Afterlife).” The track is an ambitious one with a bit of a psychedelic twist.

While the collective was at their video shoot for “Treat Me Caucasian” along with Mick Jenkins, the Lyrical Lemonade folks stopped by to capture some more scenes at their studio (The Jungle AE). H.E. made the song while LL was present to capture it all. You can hear the new track and see that video after the jump.

John Stewart has long been one of the major political satirists on the small screen but last summer he stepped away from The Daily Show to direct his first film. The film is titled Rosewater and it tells the true story of a journalist, Maziar Bahari (played by Gael Garcia Bernal), who ends up getting arrested while covering the 2009 Iranian presidential elections and is mistreated while being brutally interrogated by a man who smelled like rose water.

The images in this trailer are drenched in drama with images of how tough the situation was for Bahari while he was under custody.
