UK FILM: BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE OF ‘ANUVAHOOD’

    Actor Adam Deacon takes us behind the scenes of his up and coming film Anuvahood. Adam co-wrote the film with Michael Vu, and it’s already being hyped up via (Twitter) before it’s even been released. Let’s hope it lives up to expectations. Adam has described Anuvahood as comedy, a “Kidulthood meets Friday type thing”, and it looks set to hit cinemas sometime in 2011. I look forward to the day when talented actor Adam finally leaves the ‘fast talking road []

UK TV: JEREMY KYLE FINALLY GETS WHAT HE DESERVES

Morning talk show host Jeremy Kyle got on the wrong side of a”guest” and this is what happened. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Jeremy deserved to almost get his wig split, because he just goes too far sometimes. Yes many of his guests can only be described as being the dregs of society, but I hate the way Jeremy bullies/belittles some of them for sport, especially the one’s who are clearly mentally unstable and just hopeless.

UK NEWS: RAPPER NELLY TO HEADLINE 2010 MOBO AWARDS

It’s been reported that rapper Nelly will headline this years MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) awards, which will take place on the 20th October in Liverpool. If this is true then why have Nelly headline the event? If this was 2000/2002 then it would make sense because he was at the height of his popularity then. But booking him as the headline act in 2010 makes no sense. When was the last time he released any new music? I wonder how many []

MIAMI POLICE USE JAY-Z’S IMAGE IN ‘REPORT GANG ACTIVITY’ CAMPAIGN

Local authorities in Miami have created a banner (below) using two press photographs of the rapper Jay-Z (shot 10 years ago) in ‘report gang activity’ campaign. The images can also be viewed on their website. Via Rap Radar At present Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z gets on my last nerve (for a multitude reasons) BUT the Miami police department is wrong to use his image in this fashion. Plus isn’t this illegal??? I hope he sues their backsides.

UK NEWS / VIDEO: X-FACTOR REJECT ANASTASIA BAKER BLASTS CHER LLOYD

X-Factor reject Anastasia Baker isn’t a happy bunny. Check out her interview with tabloid rag The Sun. Admittedly Anastasia does come off as sounding a little jealous, but for the most part she speaks the truth, and she has every right to feel angry. However I have to disagree when she describes Cher Lloyd as being “unique”. A slightly crazed teenager who mimics her favourite US Hip Hop/R&B acts while performing their songs in an off keys fashion is far from “unique” []

UK MUSIC: ROUGH DIAMONDZ – ‘DO IT LIKE ME’

Ruff Diamondz are London-based trio — vocalists Troy (20), Martika (18) and MC Chronz (19). First off group member Martika looks a bit like Aaliyah (Rest In Peace). They sampled the classic Dead Prez track Bigger Than Hip Hop, so Do It Like Me sounds really good, however they should have left out the rapping. The video along with their image/style is very American (late 90s / early 2000s Hip Hop/R&B). Via Brown Eyez Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
