The Yonkers-born recording artist, famous for songs like “X Gon’ Give It to Ya,” “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem,” and “Where The Hood At,'' was rushed to White Plains Hospital in New York early April after suffering a heart attack following a potential overdose, which remains unconfirmed. Soon thereafter, he was reported to be in critical condition and placed on life support.
Looking back, the previous episode’s slow start was exactly what viewers needed to prepare for the Pandora’s box this episode opened. “Vestiges” finally dug into plot points from season one, answered burning questions, and left more questions in its wake. Despite the huge plot developments viewers were treated with, the show didn’t let up on its amazing character development and visuals, per usual. The episode was so well made that it prompts an even more satisfying second watch to make sure a single detail wasn’t missed.
Growing up playing a lot of video games, I noticed the lack of female representation to be a regular issue in the gaming community. Even now, a majority of gamers that I watch are men, and I hate that. There are a lot of women who play video games but aren’t often given the opportunity to be seen without judgment— or at all. I want to start trying to change not only the lack of support for female gamers but the idea that it’s so easy for them to be successful. Therefore, here is my list of underrated female streamers in the gaming community.

The entertainment industry has been under scrutiny for how they include underrepresented communities within their work, specifically for the industry’s lack of inclusion. While this knowledge was never new, talk of this trend became even more apparent since the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement blew up in 2017 after actresses spoke up about sexual harassment cases involving Harvey Weinstein. Both movements brought personal stories of women who face social injustices out of the woodwork and, specifically for the topic of this article regarding the entertainment industry, shaped an activist community whose motive is to demand equal representation and respect from all parties involved in the entertainment industry, i.e. casting, salary, award shows, etc.
Actor and comedian Monty Geer was relatively not as well-known when he was trying to make it big in the TV industry. That was until he landed a role on MTV’s drama/comedy Awkward. The show lasted five seasons and won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Comedy. Geer played lanky, tall geek Cole Higgins, a recurring character on the show’s last two seasons. Since the show’s ending in 2016, the actor has been doing small projects here and there along with his own stand-up act in LA. Geer took the time to speak with me about his past career and the hard work and perseverance that got him where he is today.
With the instrumentals and use of electric, synthpop, the Peach Tree Rascals make the music of the ‘70s “cool” again. Artists like Poolside and Harry Styles are brought to mind when listening through. The band brings a fresh, unique sound to the pop and hip-hop communities that will surely stand out from other artists today.
