Lamar called out 11 other rappers by name: J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky,...

Excruciating anticipation. Excruciatingly cringe-worthy awe. Excruciating disappointment. That pretty much wraps up my basic spectrum of emotions while watching the second film in the Percy Jackson franchise, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Based on the book written by Rick Riordan, the movie detail...
