RAPPER PLIES VISITS MTV’S TRL

Rapper Plies appeared on MTV’s TRL on Monday (June 9th) in New York. I just want to rip that chain off his neck and then beat him with it. He’s walking around wearing that ugly pendent with the word ‘Goon’ plastered on the front of it, when in actual fact it should say “COON”. Seriously folks..when will this COONERY end????

LIL WAYNE FREESTYLES ON 106 & PARK

Lord… why?? (rolling eyes..) Bloody atrocious! Correct me if I’m wrong BET but isn’t 106 & Park aimed at the 12 – 16 year old demographic ? Isn’t it effectively a family show?  When did it become acceptable for rappers to discuss “getting brain” (Oral sex) on 106 & Park? WHEN??? What kind of SLACKNESS is that???? And look at host Terrence laughing like Wayne’s the funniest man on earth. Damn idiot! BET, Lil Wayne, Terrence and Rocsi, you all deserve a bitch lick! more about “ MAD []

VIDEO FOOTAGE: JIM JONES / BYRD GANG LISTENING PARTY

On Monday (June 9th) Jim Jones a long with crew members, Byrd Gang hosted a listening party for their new album, ‘Jim Jones Presents M.O.B: Members of ByrdGang’. My Jim Jim is so articulate, so sexy (watch how he rolls up that blunt)….the man is just gorgeous….. (Call me Jim!) However Jones needs to start being honest with himself. His off shoot group Byrd Gang isn’t going to fly. Within a year every group member will leave disgruntled, blaming him because their careers failed to take off like promised.  We have seen it all []

LIL WAYNE VISITS MTV’S TRL

(Sigh…) Lil Wayne is one strange, disturbed little man……  Anyway “rapper” Lil Wayne visited the TRL yesterday (June 10th). His new album ‘The Carter III’ dropped yesterday and billboards promoting the album can be seen on the walls of London Underground tube stations.  When I get off the train at Monument tube station in the mornings with all the city suits, and then see this album cover staring back at me I cringe and race for the exit.  Photographs: WireImage

UK FILM NEWS: ‘ADULTHOOD’

Noel Clarke British born actor/writer, Noel Clarke is back with the new British film ‘Adulthood’, the sequel to the hit film ‘Kidulthood. CLICK HERE TO WATCH TRAILER I really enjoyed ‘Kidulthood’. It was nice seeing up and coming young black British talent runnng rampant on the big screen. Plus the film did a good job of portraying the problems inner city youth face here on a daily basis. Problems which are often brought on by their own foolish/dumb acts.   I therefore look forward to seeing the sequel and I hope I won’t be disappointed.
