At the beginning of this month, multi-talented rapper, drummer, producer, and bandleader Anderson .Paak shared a brand-new single, “Tints”, featuring his fellow Southern California-native hip-hop star/Dr. Dre protege Kendrick Lamar. The track was initially unveiled during an appearance by Anderson .Paak on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe after multiple weeks of teasing the collaboration.The track’s beat evokes the aesthetic of the golden-age, West Coast hip-hop in which both artists grew up and which .Paak kept alive on his Grammy-nominated sophomore LP, Malibu. “Tints” begs to be blasted with the windows down as you cruise down the 405—something both artists were no-doubt aware of when they cleverly made the song about needing tints on their windows to keep the paparazzi out of their business (“Bitch, I’m Kendrick Lamar. Respect me from afar”).Now, as the lead-up to .Paak’s highly-anticipated new album, Oxnard, intensifies, he has shared a new official music video for “Tints” directed by Colin Tilley. The surreal video features a number of shocking visuals of .Paak and Lamar, as well as a cameo from Dr. Dre. Mirroring the sentiments of the track, the video begins with a quote from Edgar Allen Poe: “Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.”You can check out the new video below:Anderson .Paak ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Tints” [Official Music Video][Video: Anderson Paak]From various recent interviews, we know that Anderson .Paak has two different new albums on the way—one with his band, The Free Nationals, and one solo album (dubbed Oxnard, after .Paak’s hometown) executive-produced by Dr. Dre.

Yesterday, various meetings were held at the Banski dvori to agree on final measures to help the economy from the negative impact of the coronavirus on the entire market. More about all concrete measures will be found out today, when they will be presented at the Government session, which will then go to the Parliament for adoption, publication in the Official Gazette and are expected to be active from next week. Also, Cappelli pointed out that some measures are under the jurisdiction of local self-government units (JLS), such as a flat tax per bed in family accommodation, so that they are also discussed in which direction everything should go. Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli in front of the Parliament, he stated that tomorrow the Government from the tourism sector will be subject to a measure of deferral of payments according to the “3 + 3” model. Minister of Finance Zdravko Marić za RTL Today He said a set of measures he would present today in the short term could have an effect. “Surgically precise measures in such a short time we can not do, but most importantly to put this tomorrow in the emergency procedure procedure. An integral part of these measures is liquidity. On the one hand, there are public benefits – income tax, profit tax and contributions. According to the working version, and we will agree on the details during the day and night until the session, we are talking about a three-month deferral of payment with a possible additional three months of extension. On the other hand, there are credit and lines in cooperation with HBOR, CNB and HUB, all of which are in some way aimed at focusing a similar principle on the credit arrangement. Said Maric. Source: Index.hr, RTL Danas / Photo: Index Video “It is important for us that there is a delay, such as a delay in the payment of tourist tax, tourist membership fees, hoteliers in the payment of concessions in camps on tourist land – that all delays go through the 3 + 3 model. We are going in that direction, that, depending on the events, it will be postponed for three months. In this way, personal income and everything we can solve immediately and urgently will probably be solved. So we’re sure we can cover that for the next six months. In the first place is the protection of the workforce and liquidity”Cappelli pointed out, Index.hr reports.
Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan says the 1-1 draw with Asante Kotoko was a fair result despite believing his side could have carried the day.The two giants sold out a highly entertaining game in the Ghanaian version of the ‘El Classico’ at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.Hearts jumped into the lead through a driven effort by striker Winful Cobbinah in the 27th minute and went on to control the game in the first half.Kotoko however came back strongly after recess to equalize through a Michael Helegbe header.It was end-to-end stuff afterwards with both sides committing forces in search of that elusive winner.Kotoko could have carried all three points at the depth with Richard Mpong’s lob over goalkeeper Tetteh Lugard going agonizingly wide to ultimately end the game 1-1. And though coach Duncan says the draw was a fair result, he believes his team could have won the game with a bit more purposeful effort upfront.“Yes it (the game) could have been won especially in the first half but we didn’t take our chances,” he said in the post-match interview.“And when we came back in the second half we continued to create and I thought there were a few opportunities that we could have taken even though they were few and far in between as compared to the first half.“It was one of those situations where we weren’t lucky enough so 1-1 I think was a fair reflection of the game.”The thrilling draw leaves Hearts in eight with their opponent climbing to second on the Ghanaian top flight. The Phobians will next travel to take on already-relegated Real Tamale United on Wednesday.
Martinez allowed only four hits, struck out nine and was still hitting 100 mph on the radar gun in the eighth inning.“He’s their best pitcher and he was executing his pitches tonight,” Gonzalez said. “He isn’t a pitcher who’s going to blow you away. He’s going to try and pitch and he has the ability to pitch in the low to mid-90s. But when he needs to, he can ramp it up and you saw that tonight.”Ryu also ramps up his fastball – in a much different neighborhood.Restored to the rotation after being briefly moved into a long relief role, though, Ryu matched Martinez for six innings, holding the Cardinals to three hits and a walk.But it was Ryu who stumbled first. He allowed a run in the second inning on a two-out RBI double by Paul DeJong. After that, though, he retired 13 of the final 14 batters he faced, allowing an assortment of soft contact through six innings.“Tonight, he came out really focused,” Roberts said of Ryu. “He came out aggressive, filling the strike zone. You like to think every time they take the mound guys are focused. But he did have a really good look in his eye. The change(up) was really good. He was throwing a little cutter in on righties. And the fastball played up. It was as much velocity as we’ve seen this year from Hyun-Jin. He matched that pitcher pitch for pitch.”Ryu made it through six innings on an efficient 77 pitches. He was set to pitch into the seventh inning of a start for the first time since 2014 – before shoulder and elbow surgeries sidelined him for most of two seasons. But when Kiké’ Hernandez doubled with two outs in the top of the seventh, Roberts called Ryu back and sent up Austin Barnes as a pinch-hitter. Barnes struck out.“In that seventh inning, we had to take a chance on scoring a run,” Roberts said. “So we fired that bullet.”Stripling came in and handled things until falling behind in the count, 2-and-1, to Fowler.“I wanted it up but I wanted it in on his hands,” Stripling said of the errant pitch. “It was in between being on his hands and being a back-footer and just kind of fizzled out over the plate.“Out of my hand, I kind of knew where it was going to be. I was hoping he’d take it. … I executed all of my pitches except that one.”With Alex Wood ineligible to return from the DL until Tuesday, Ryu figures to get one more start before the Dodgers will have to reevaluate his role again.“Obviously his outing tonight was very encouraging,” Roberts said. “We’ve always considered him a starter and we’d like to continue to give him opportunities. But I think right now it’s still contingent upon Alex and his health.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error They did pitch well – both Martinez and Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu.Martinez did give a hint of his dark side. The same pitcher who shut out the Giants two starts ago and struck out 10 Cubs on opening day without issuing a walk is also the pitcher who struck out 11 and walked eight – throwing 118 pitches in only 5-1/3 innings — in a start against the Yankees.He threw five consecutive balls to start the game Wednesday and allowed the first two Dodgers to reach base – a walk to Logan Forsythe and a single by Corey Seager.“It definitely gave you a good feeling,” Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said.It was just a tease. Martinez retired 15 of the next 17. The Dodgers didn’t get another runner to second base until pushing across their run in the sixth inning when Seager walked (the last of three by Martinez), went to third on a single by Yasmani Grandal and scored on a sacrifice fly by Adrian Gonzalez. ST. LOUIS >> Sometimes Carlos Martinez’s evil twin shows up and makes life easier for opposing hitters. The Dodgers probably should have left a ticket for him.The offense that had averaged 6½ runs per game during their six-game winning streak went silent against Martinez on Wednesday night and that streak came to an end as the Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1.Dexter Fowler struck the decisive blow when he sent a cutter from Dodgers reliever Ross Stripling into the seats with two outs in the eighth inning.“You want to win them all,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, a damper put on his 45th birthday. “They pitched well and they beat us tonight.”
