UK MUSIC: SKEPTA FT MEGAMAN – WE BEGIN THINGS

… “Black chicks, white chicks and the lighties” –  Are “lighties”  now considered a separate race within the black community? Anyway Skepta has done a good job of recapturing the early So Solid vibe, sound and visuals alongside the group’s leader Megaman. So good in fact that at first I thought it was Megaman featuring Skepta. I was a So Solid fan so I really like this track. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? About these ads

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – CASTLES

I remember when they were looking for models to appear in this video via Twitter. Anyway check out Skepta dressed like Hugh Hefner in the music promo for his latest single Castle. … The Track: Not bad. The Video: Seeing all that smoke coming out of their mouths made me feel nauseous and now my chest hurts. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – YOU KNOW ME

….. I can’t quite figure out if old Skepta here expects us to take this new track seriously or if it’s supposed to be a joke. “Me and my black mates and some white niggas” and “Ah wha di bloodclart” What is going on here???? Hahahahahahahaha. Your thoughts please….

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – HOLD ON

Check out the new single from Skepta – Hold On. … The Single – I don’t mind the rapping/production but the hook just sounds cheesy. It actually makes me cringe. The Video – The up and coming 2012 Olympics obviously inspired the director. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

MUSIC INDUSTRY SKULL DUGGERY: JIMMY IOVINE, EMINEM, SKEPTA AND DMCA (DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT) ABUSE

Last week I posted the news that UK artist Skepta’s new single Dare To Dream had been removed from YouTube and passed on to golden boy Eminem by Interscope Records founder Jimmy Iovine (Click HERE to read all about it). And since then it’s been revealed just how this all went down. Website Torrent Freak writes, After “Dare to Dream” was put up on YouTube one of its early listeners was Jimmy Iovine, founder of Interscope records. Recognizing quality, Iovine had plans […]

UK MUSIC NEWS: SKEPTA HANDS OVER NEW SINGLE TO EMINEM

AUDIO/UK MUSIC: DIDDY FT SKEPTA – HELLO GOOD MORNING ( GRIME REMIX)

I wondered what was going on with this much hyped remix. Anyway UK artist Skepta’s  Grime remix of Diddy’s/Dirty Money’s Hello Good Morning track premiered last night, and people are already behaving as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I’ve never been a big fan of Grime but admittedly this remix isn’t bad. Skepta did a relatively decent job, and I like the way the girls from Dirty Money sing over the beat. However the radio personalities who were wetting […]

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – RESCUE ME

Today I watched new afternoon BBC2 show No Hats No Trainers, and rapper Skepta was a main feature on the show. He is an attractive man. I hadn’t really paid that much attention to him before, but that all changed today! Anyway check out Skepta’s latest single Rescue Me which actually sounds pretty good. It also has that mainstream appeal, and will probably go on to become his  first UK number 1 single. The video – Is he supposed to be in […]
