A staple of the comedy scene on Grounds, Amuse Bouche held their second improv show of the semester Thursday night at John W. Warner Hall. With nothing but comedic instincts, quick thinking and bursts of audience laughter to propel them, the 10-member ensemble delivered an impressive performance.
Hailie Jade Mathers is better protected than the president, goes one joke. Say her name three times, and Eminem will appear, goes another.
Much like Billie Eilish, Drake likes to debut a new era in his discography with a dramatic makeover. Last summer, a selfie of the rapper's heart-embossed hairstyle sent ripples through social media, effectively leveraging self-caricature to tease his album “Certified Lover Boy”. During a March trip to the islands of Turks and Caicos, he unveiled braids, hinting at the Afro-Caribbean culture he would draw on for his next project.
Until a few months ago, the idea that the trailblazing Korean girl group Girls’ Generation would return to make music together was variably a pipe dream — or during more cynical moods, a running gag — within K-pop circles.
Social media users will remember when the simple phrase “rain drop, drop top,” from the Migos song “Bad and Boujee” took the Internet by storm in 2017, spawning countless memes and Instagram captions. The viral phenomenon propelled the Atlanta rap trio’s sophomore studio album, “Culture,” to mainstream attention and capped off notable co-signs from the likes of Drake and Donald Glover. Dubbed “the Beatles of our generation” by the latter, Migos seized the media attention to springboard from being a Southern favorite to a national sensation.
The rapper Nas has built a storied career for himself over the course of nearly three decades. In 1994, he entered the East Coast hip-hop scene with his debut album “Illmatic,” which remains a contender for the best rap album of all time.

Nas has continued putting out strong lyrical albums into the present day, earning a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album in 2020.
With multi-platinum albums, the acclaimed protest song “The Bigger Picture,” and Sunday’s Grammy win for “Best Melodic Rap Performance” to his name, Lil Baby doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. In fact, his 47 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart place him in the same league as music legends Paul McCartney and Prince when it comes to making hits — but his indisputable standing in the top bracket of the rap game wasn’t a sure bet.

Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke. At first glance, these names look like a list of some of the highest-paid singers at one time or another. But if you were to ask certain copyright lawyers working in the industry, they might tack on a slightly more controversial label — a group of shameless plagiarists looking to make a buck off someone else’s work.
