NEW MUSIC: JAY-Z – DEATH OF AUTOTUNE (RADIO RIP)

Everybody seems to be talking about Jay’s latest offering ‘Death Of AutoTune’ on Twitter. I just listened to the track and I like it. The old man has impressed me.

UK NEWS: BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY WINS FIRST COUNTRY COUNCIL SEATS

BNP Party leader Nick Griffin Via Yahoo News The BNP (British National Party) has won its first county council seats in Lancashire and Leicestershire as Labour was humiliated in local elections across England. Continue Reading….. For those who have never heard of the British National Party, they are Britain’s political answer to the Klu Klux Klan. I expected the BNP to win seats because the reality is, there are thousands upon thousands of people in this country who believe in their policies and believe in what they stand []

UK MUSIC: JLS – BEAT AGAIN

Former X-Factor contestents JLS have released the video to their highly anticipated debut single Beat Again In my opinion JLS as a group have always been incredibly WEAK and Beat Again just sounds like a track that NSYNC would have recorded back in 2000.  But it will probably go down a storm with the teeny boppers…. What do you all think? Hit or Miss?

PIC OF THE DAY: BRIAN BELO AND CHARLEY UCHEA

Former Big Brother contestents Big Brother 8 winner Brian Belo and Charley Uchea, attended the Big Brother 10 launch party, which took place on Wednesday night (June 3rd) in London. Some things will never change.  I see that old Essex boy Brian is still suffering from an identity crisis, and still insists on wearing blue contact lenses. He will probably start using skin bleaching agents next. And as for Charley… Still believing that she’s a celebrity and a “friend to the stars”.

UK NEWS: METRO NEWSPAPER JOURNALIST CAUSES ANGER AND OUTRAGE AFTER INTERVIEWING UK RAPPER BASHY

Rapper Bashy In a new interview with The Metro Newspaper, UK rapper Bashy was asked the following question by journalist James Day…. Is music a way out for young black people now, like boxing used to be? The question stopped me dead in my tracks this morning, and then I laughed out loud.   Could James really be this dumb, ignorant and perhaps racist? Does he actually believe that back in the day a young black man’s (that’s who I assume he is referring too) only goal in life []

EMINEM CONFIRMS THAT HE WAS IN ON ‘BRUNO JOKE’

Eminem spoke to website RapRader and confirmed what many had already suspected…. RR: Can you clear up the Bruno stunt at the MTV Awards? Was it staged or planned? Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards. I’m a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag. RR: Was it executed the way you agreed to, and if not, do you hold MTV or Sacha responsible and []
