The BBC News website reports that Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy aka Puffy aka Puff aka P Diddy aka Diddy aka Papa Diddy Pop, has expressed admiration for today’s ‘UK Hip Hop scene’.
The star believes that British Hip Hop is “on the verge of breaking into the US charts”, and added,
“I’ve always been abreast and respected the UK Hip-Hop scene and I look forward to great things,”
(saying this in a broad Jamaican accent) – STOP LIE!!!!!
But I would love to know the names of the artists that he admires within the UK Hip Hop scene. If we are talking about the usual mediocre mainstream suspects who currently reign supreme in the UK charts, then old man Diddy needs to be guided in to the right direction. ASAP!!!
Tinie Tempeh is the only one who stands a decent chance of breaking into the US charts, only because his tracks so far have been well produced. Other than that I think his lyrics will go down like a lead balloon over there. They don’t want to hear about chocolate biscuits.
