The realization that Jack told such a profound lie was a tough pill for the entire family to swallow, and who knows what else we'll learn about Jack's past in season 4? The season 2 finale introduced an ominous flash-forward timeline in which a much older Randall and Tess are going to visit an unnamed "her" at the hospital. The season 3 finale appropriately titled "Her" revealed that the character in question was a bed-ridden Rebecca, who appeared to be suffering from severe dementia.
Season 4 is also likely to show more of Rebecca coping in La Coco - Fréhel - Du Caf Conc Au Music Hall aftermath of Jack's death, and the blossoming of her relationship with Miguel.
Despite being in a committed relationship with Beth's cousin Zoe, Kevin had a rocky season 3. Discovering the truth about Nicky, and meeting his troubled uncle for the first time, took a toll on Kevin, who relapsed into alcoholism midway through the season. He's back on the wagon by the finale, though, and ends his relationship with Zoe because he knows that he wants children, and Zoe knows that she doesn't.
Though Kevin doesn't appear in the finale's flash-forward, the scene does take place at his house, and it's revealed that he has a son in the future! So one of our most burning questions for season 4—who's the mother of his child?
Kate's anxiety over her "high-risk pregnancy" was a big part of her season 3 storyline, and she did ultimately go into labor early at just 28 weeks, meaning that she and Toby's baby son Jack had to be kept at the hospital for several weeks after his birth. But as of the finale, baby Jack seemed to be doing just fine, and Kate and Toby were finally Déraisonnable (Wrap Your Love All Around Your Man) - Sylvie Vartan - Déraisonnable to take him home from the hospital.
Ever since quitting his 4 Commandments - Killa Kela - For Those Who Joined Us corporate job at the end of season 1, Randall's been a little directionless career-wise. That all changed early in season three when he made the unexpected decision to run for city council in Philadelphia—where his biological father William lived—and even more unexpectedly won.
Beth finally got her own backstory episode in season 3, which revealed that she gave up her dreams of being a dancer as a teenager after her father's death. Years later, she realizes that she doesn't want to put her own passions on the back-burner any more, which causes some friction with Randall who's pursuing his own risky new path in politics.
But ultimately the couple came to a compromisedeciding to downsize, sell their house in New Jersey and move to Philadelphia, where Randall will focus on his work for city council while Beth can open her own dance studio. Toby also got his own flashback episode for the first time in season 3, which detailed his history of mental illness just as he was Tiritomba - Bob Boon Singers - Bob Boon Singers International with a depressive episode in the present day.
He's also a major presence in the flash-forward, and fans were quick to notice that he is not wearing a wedding ring—does this spell trouble for Kate and Toby's marriage? Miguel is also missing from the flash-forward in the season 3 finale when you'd expect him to be at Rebecca's bedside, which co-showrunner Isaac Aptaker has confirmed is significant. To say that Deja's been through a lot is an understatement: Having been passed around the foster system for years, she's taken in by Randall and Beth in season 2, then makes a brief and ill-fated return to her biological mom after Thanksgiving.
In the season 3 premiere, she agreed to let Randall and Beth formally adopt her after her mom relinquished her paternal Dave Grusin - The Champ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, and by the end of the season she seems to be adjusting well to life as a Pearson. Randall and Beth's older daughter Tess was developed a lot last season: she came out as gay to her parents in an incredibly touching scene, and features heavily in the flash-forward visiting Rebecca alongside Randall.
Her younger sister Annie hasn't been given as much of a solo focus yet, but that's bound to change as she gets older. Though Randall's birth father died a truly devastating death late in season 1, that hasn't stopped Ron Cephas Jones from showing up regularly to bless us with perfect voiceovers delivered in his sonorous and soothing voice.
We hope and expect to keep seeing plenty of William in season 4. After Zoe's breakup with Kevin, Liburd will not be returning to This Is Us as a series regular for season 4—which doesn't mean that she won't show up at all. BS: What promotion have you had so far?

Oh my gosh. This is one home-grown talent that we are proud to have gracing the cover of the latest Big Smoke. Coupled with the talent is a refreshing drive and ambition, so expect to see big things from one person that gains respect everywhere she goes. Gwan girl! Christopher Tracy. BS: How and when did things start for you? From there we kind of just progressed. It was a nice situation to be in. And here we are today. BS: Why did you go into rapping rather than singing? I work on the beats and what the beats tell me Sky Islands - Ramsey Lewis - Sky Islands do.
BS: So where are you at right now as for deals, releases etc.? Or I can still say that regardless. BS: How do you feel about major labels?
And I have enough knowledge now to know exactly what a major label is offering me and what an independent label is gonna offer me. And know which one to choose.
You gotta make those tracks, and you gotta be happy with them. You need to make stuff people can remember. Give us one. Use it properly. No-one knows you and your product better than yourself.
Handle the business. Why do you buy music for? Heads expect you to get better, so keep coming with the goods, keep doing your thing, keep recording, keep putting your tracks out. Everybody needs to be aware that a good hook hurts. Someone singing a hook hurts, someone singing something that someone else can sing along to helps. I produce a bit myself, done a couple of tracks for some people. BS: If you were a pigeon who would you shit on?
You are fucking up, Bush. You so are. I have an Akai DPS12, which is a track hard disc recorder. I got that before I got my Roland VS track recorder. I use an Akai MPC for all the beats and stuff.
I mean, put me in a studio with say I know I can sit in the studio with those kind of artists and come up with something creative. BS: Can you get your finished sound with that? I can, with this Roland V there are so many capabilities for mixing in there, so many effects, so much you can do with this digital equipment nowadays, that you can get your finished sound.
BS: Do you record at home then go to the studio to mix down? Most of it I finish here. Black Current Jazz was done here. BS: Do you support yourself through hip-hop? BS: Do you press over here and 4 Commandments - Killa Kela - For Those Who Joined Us the records to Japan? BS: You record vocals here too? BS: When did you start producing?
But I only had a crap Casio keyboard at school worst sounds ever. It was a white label, but it was in a few stores. BS: Do you have a formula you follow when making music? I might loop it up and have some temporary drums in there, and change things up later. I thought about pressing in New York but the shipping is so expensive.
BS: 4 Commandments - Killa Kela - For Those Who Joined Ustell me about the new album. BS: What are you working on at the moment? First with the Big Boss Will Ashon BS: What was the hardest part of setting up Big Dada? WA: Fliptrix - Polyhymnia started working on it in and the first release wasthe hardest thing at the time was to get anyone to buy the record. As a UK hip-hop label, it's easy to forget how much has changed over the last five years in terms of attitudes towards that.
Maybe Funky DL had an album out in orthe Brotherhood just got dropped and then Lewis Parker had his album probably ' The stuff that people usually struggle with with labels was easy to me, because I knew someone at Ninja Tune. I met them a couple of times and I went and said 'would you be interested in doing it?
The fact of the matter is they put money into UK hip-hop via me inwhen no other fucker was. BS: What your relationship with Ninja Tune like? Obviously moneywise I have to run things past them, but they have a vito on my spending. BS: Any struggles and problems since then and peoples' perceptions of the label? We've released more UK hip-hop albums in the last five years than any other label in the UK, than any other label has done in the last ten years, and yeah you might not like all of them, they might not all be to your taste, but the bottom line is we're putting records out, and not because we're making large amounts of money, 'cos nobody puts out British hip-hop records to make their fortune.
We've done. But overall people can't see the contribution we've made to the revival that there's been as well. It's still like 'Yeah, they're not a proper label', and WHY? I thought it was about expressing yourself in your own way and being true to what you're about, not kids from Hull rhyming in a London accent 'cos otherwise all the people in London go 'You're not real. BS: How do achieve quality control, are you strict? WA: The main thing I've done is made people put out shorter albums, 'cos everybody comes to you with albums that are an hour and fifteen minutes long.
There's always a bit of give and take, we're an artist-led label. All I always said is I think we put out interesting records. BS: Most of the MCs on your label have got pretty complex and abstract flows - out of the whole Big Dada roster, who would win a shit-talking contest?
WA: They all uniquely talk shit, in their own unique ways. It's partly because they wanna kill it when they perform. BS: What's new from Big 4 Commandments - Killa Kela - For Those Who Joined Us for next year? He structures everything so well, it's like someone building a house. If he wants to buy a nice house, and get a big advance, good on him! He's a brilliant artist and he deserves everything he gets. BS: Where do you hope Big Dada will be in the future? WA: To be honest with you I want Big Dada to be a great black music label, not just a great hip-hop label.
If you put out the strongest records you can, you know that your label is going to have a legacy whether it goes out of business tomorrow or it's still going in ten years time. But hip-hop is contemporary black music, and I wanna be putting out the best of that music. BS: Last time I heard from you you were moving to Birmingham, how have you got back here to this stage? LT: Yeah, transglobal transportation, just went up there Transmission - Joy Division - All Gods Angels Beware write tracks, and I wrote tracks, and I came back.
It seemed like it was a long period but I think it was probably only about three weeks. Those tracks are somewhere, someone got them. I listen to a lot of reggae, I listen to a lot of stuff.
BS: I remember you seemed to be quite into the rasta kind of lifestyle back when you were in Finsbury Park, do you still follow Rastaism? LT: Yeah I try and live good, innit. You see how much combs cost these days!? On the real, there are some elements of what they believe that ring true for me, and there are some elements of what everybody believes in that ring true, so you take what you can and build your own view.
In the now time, whenever. Or an English Lotek Hi-Fi? LT: My Mum! I dunno MF Doom, and Eric Clapton - Pilgrim two-headed alien from Or dyslexic people who thought it said Techno! If it was to be like Yoda-biters how many people are copying my shit at the moment?!
Plus most hip hop DJs' 'sense of humour' appears to be limited to some kung-fu samples, an answer machine message or a silly shout-out from their friend pretending to have a hillbilly accent. It seems that the scant regard for copyright laws, which were part of the cavalier attitude of the DJ, have had to change in this modern million-dollar climate.
Every DJ wants to get paid, and who can blame them? It seems that Yoda, rightly so, is not one to suffer fools Days Before - Prudence - Drunk And Happy. But when making a tape what creates the right balance?
And the sad thing is there are only a few of us left who spin with those ideas in mind. Every record store's shelves are groaning under the weight of jiggy Flex and his R.
D. Burman, Anand Bakshi - Main Awara Hoon dawg copycat mix CDs I know, CDs. However, in the hip-hop tradition true quality thrives on its opposition to the mainstream. Now the pioneers are back. Of the new knights sat at the round turn table let us first describe Kid Koala.
Now the Kid epitomises all that is magical about the mix-tape. On this masterpiece he barely uses hip-hop, instead plumping for plinking-plonky Chinese rhythms over rewinded beats and Charlie Brown dialogue scratched into amusing new contexts.
It was this contagiously fun approach to turntablism March Of The Dead Things (Unreleased) - The Herbaliser - Herbal Tonic had listeners flocking to him like some vinyl Pied Piper, namely the boys at Ninja Tune who promptly signed him to their label off the back of it.
Damning proof that the best way to make waves as a DJ is by circulating homemade tapes. Like a stark contrast to the professionally tweaked studio mixes of the mainstream, Kid Koala proved that mix-tapes such as his are an integral part of DJ culture. They allow an affordable, practical vehicle for anyone, regardless of notoriety, to showcase their talents with complete artistic freedom.
Proper grass roots hip-hop. Another DJ who has risen through the ranks to become a pioneer is DJ Yoda, a north London turntable wizard and all round mix-tape authority. The set is the two of them on 4 Commandments - Killa Kela - For Those Who Joined Us decks taking over twenty years of hip-hop history and blending it with funk and even rock to sublime effect.
All done live as the title suggests in a club environment, with a crowd so loud you can hear them through the needles! I love that warts and all approach, unique joints not regulated by what are the current commercial club bangers are. The list goes on. Aww, fuck it, pass that new Flex tape with the hot new joint from his man Enrique Inglesias.
And can be peeped by contacting him at oneoffthewrist hotmail. Pretty much any mix-tape Mr. Romanowski- the rock steady mix-tapes…best shit to listen to and I never get tired. And I was lucky to be involved in the live shows, so I know the work they put into it.
No better way to make a mix-tape than to have something you can listen to 20 years from now and still feel like it can hold its own. Si G from Baldbeats Top It almost seems like some higher calling that the mix-tape DJ has. That they have to spread the gospel to the masses, schooling them to the real hits and the ones they missed. A lot of records I have put on mixes have eventually been re-issued, or become established underground classics.
It seems all the shite hip-hop gets the big sales when the really amazing stuff exists and survives from this kind of underground hip-hop love. Si G from Baldbeats offers one example. That track blew up and then was bootlegged because J-Live was dropped by London. Popularised the craze of using spoken word records. From the intros to the doubling up you can feel the blood, sweat and tears that go into sounding so nice. I learnt how to scratch on that.
I got my first set up of two decks probably two or three years after that. With a first class sound system it was good to see hip-hop represented lovely, topped off with the fact that there was always a real family feel as all the heads passed through. So we both bought one pint each. The success of Roots Manuva took them to many places, including a tour of North America. How did the American audiences take to an English act? He started a mail order service, sending out lists to hip-hop hungry punters.
For a jam that ran consistently for four years, that. I suggest you lay your hands on one of these pronto. Pete Real. This time it was true. RL: My MC style comes from my lifestyle. The Lo-Life lifestyle. It's straight reality spitting staying fly, taking papers, having a Lo-Wife, Lo-life larceny etc.
No holds barred, straight spitting. I incorporate a lot of life experience in my material, but I put a twist on everything making sure it's lyrical and hip-hop. That's what we represent - raw, energetic, groundbreaking, classical hip-hop. I'm from the early days of the culture so I understand the importance of grabbing the mic and saying something.
I mean the rich and the poor was effected. But on the real, it showed me that you have to really cherish your life and your family, and live your life to the fullest every second of the day. It's like you never know when something can happen. It's really made me a believer in the term "expect the unexpected".
That's a day I will never forget. BS: What has been the greatest moment in your hip-hop career? I met everyone battling, so it was crazy. RL: The greatest moment up to this point for me would have to be performing live in Sweden. Performing in Gothenburg, Sweden at Fatmilk has been one of the highlights for me thus far. It opened me up to a whole new world. I mean I knew hip-hop was global, but actually being in another part of the world and rocking live was incredible.
I mean the fans came out in numbers, they packed the place, and it was definitely a classical event. From the fans, to the lyrics, energy, to the love we got BS: Favorite or last movie seen and why? BS: Have you ever come over to the UK? And have you heard of any UK rappers? As far as MCs go my man Mr. CRF is out of Manchester, he's doing his thing with the music, plus he got his own magazine.
BS: How has September 11th affected you and your community? We sorry for all the families and all that were, you know, effected by it, but as far as having an impact on the ghetto the most it had was like if you knew somebody who was in the building. Nobody give a fuck. RL: September 11th affected us in many ways. From losing friends and family in the trade centres, to being effected economically.
Yo, that was probably the realest thing I ever seen in my life, where so much life was lost, property and families destroyed. It was horrible man. The day that happened, the entire city was on freeze. Everybody and everyone was effected one way or.
The guy who played the lead role was awesome. I also like it because it demonstrated how corruption was defeated by corruption. One man was able to turn an entire system into nothing and everybody paid the price. Joined: Mar 01, Its an absolutely fabolous LIVE band!! Senor Splooge.
