UK MUSIC NEWS: SINGER JAMELIA SIGNS NEW RECORD

Jamelia who left former label EMI back in 2007 has signed a new record deal. The over-excited /emotional singer signed the deal live on UStream in front of her management team and two children.

VIDEO: RICK ROSS FT STYLES P – B.M.F

First let me say I HATE myself for liking Rick Ross’ new single B.M.F… but I’m sorry I just do! LOL! Officer Ricky is back with his lyrical fake foolishness but I like the production. I thought 50 Cent had destroyed Rick’s career but the former prison officer is still going, doing his thing (I’m actually impressed). And nobody seems to be checking for old Fiddy these days. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Also check out footage from Rick’s album release []

RIDICULOUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: IRV GOTTI

The world has yet to see the best of Nicki Minaj. What she’s delivering to the world now is basically what they want. But I know that she’s a super talented superstar who can do anything at a high level—rap, sing, act, whatever she wants to do. This is just the beginning of Nicki Minaj. Her best is yet to come. In my opinion she is as talented as my other girl Lauryn Hill. They have completely different styles. But as far []

The ‘classy’ affair will apparently take place in basket ball superstar Lebron James’  Miami mansion. Click HERE to view the alleged guest list. Rasha Entertainment also reports that []

UK MUSIC: THAI-MATIC – A MILLION ANSWERS

A Million Answers is the first release from Thai Matic’s forthcoming mixtape,  Let Me Land. I am definitely feeling this track. The production is decent and the guy can rap. Yep! This gets the thumbs up from me. But will the UK mainstream embrace it? Probably not. It doesn’t sound like THIS or THIS. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: NAS AND DAMIAN MARLEY PERFORM IN LONDON

Nas and Damain Marley performed together at The Hammersmith Apollo on Tuesday night and from what I hear blew the audience away. The show was apparently that good! Britain’s most famous waste woman, Amy Winehouse could be seen (and was photographed) at the side of the stage acting and looking like a cracked out fool. But anyway the less said about her the better. Check out the performance below. [Thanks Pinboard Blog]
