C. Fulla and Antoine Banks’ ‘#DopeForever ‘ review (4 out of 5 stars)

Hip hop has dominated the music charts for the last two decades and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down; Antoine Banks and Cody Fuller, aka C. Fulla, are making sure of that.

 They recently released their first collaborated mixtape under D.O.P.E. (Dreaming of Possessing Everything) Music, and it has been a hot commodity, especially around the central Texas area. The mixtape is that perfect sound for what a lot of people look for when they are out on the town or at a house party. The mixtape has a perfect blend of songs that make you want to get up and dance, and others that make you listen to the lyrics and hear the story the two have to tell. Singer Amanda Colon also appears on the chorus’ of some tracks and she adds a beautiful voice to an already talented pair of vocal artists.

I have heard non-stop how awesome this place is and how it will keep chill bumps on you the whole time. Three friends and I took the hour and a half trip to check out the place that holds a Guinness world record for its length, and to see how it is rated in the top 13 haunted houses in the U.S.

Six Flags packed for Fright Fest

Six Flags Over Texas is not only crowded in the summer, it’s also popping in Fright Fest season. I had not been there since the 8th grade and wondered if it was still as awesome as I remembered. The weather was perfect for mid-October and the park was incredibly crowded. Excited to experience Six Flags in holiday mode, I was overjoyed immediately and felt 13 again.
