VIDEO: YO GOTTI FT GUCCI MANE, TRINA AND NICKI MINAJ – 5 STAR CHICK (REMIX)

Up until this point I had successfully avoided listening to the much hyped remix of ‘5 Star Chick’ and the female “rapper” of the moment Nicki Minaj, but I finally gave in today. Curiousity got the better of me. People Stateside seem to be going crazy over this Nicki Minaj, and after listening to her “spit” I am baffled as to why anyone would give her props. Has it really come to this on the female rapper front? Trina refuses to disappear []

MUSIC: MICHAEL JACKSON – ‘THIS IS IT’

Source This Is It is an unreleased track from Michael Jackson’s back catalogue and it sounds…… OK…. It’s definitely not his best work which probably explains why it remained locked in a vault while he was alive. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN  This morning GMTV made a big deal out of the single’s release by arranging for  beefy security staff to deliver the CD safely in to the studio. I laughed out loud. The single more than likely leaked on the Internet long before GMTV got their hands on it. Anyway your thoughts []

UK MUSIC: POUND STERLING – ‘FRESH’

UK artist Pound Sterling reminds me of 50 Cent (circa 2003 image) and this video /track is just the UK version of Fiddy’s ‘I Get Money’. Hmmmm.. the production isn’t bad. Do you know what? Pound Sterling, the track, the tired video concept, the whole ‘let’s pretend I’m a rich American rapper’ vibe, and the Pound Sterling sign tatooed on his left peck, I find it all highly amusing! I love it! LOL! [Thanks K] Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK TV: 13 YEAR OLD DIONNE BROMFIELD SINGS LIVE ON STRICTLY COME DANCING

13 year old Dionne Bromfield sang live last night on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ with her “godmother” Amy Winehouse singing backing vocals. Obviously Dionne’s connection to Amy has opened many doors for her ( hanging out in nightclubs with Amy, signed to a major label, appearing on Strictly etc), but the girl can sing. I was impressed.  However not sure what her ‘”godmother” Waste Woman Winehouse was doing. Was she even singing? All I could hear were the male backing vocalists… And Winehouse looked completely []
