UK HIP HOP VETERAN RODNEY P EXPRESSES OUTRAGE OVER PROFESSOR GREEN’S ‘JUNGLE’ VIDEO

UK Hip Hop veteran Rodney P reminded me of a music video I watched late last year that just left me shaking my head and thinking that young black British males are truly lost. They are seen running around committing violent acts and behaving like savage beasts in this video and none of them actually questioned what they were doing during filming.  Nobody actually said ‘hold up  a minute! What the hell am I doing here??? This is some off-key stereotypical BULLS**T! But []

UK MUSIC: BABY BLUE – ‘PLAY’

Rapper Baby Blue is back with the single Play. ………………………………………….. Baby Blue has taken it back to the late 80s Hip Hop era with this video, and the single has a slight old school feel to it also. Play is well produced and you can tell that some thought went in to the making of the single (i.e. It doesn’t sound like it was all put together in five minutes).  It’s not bad. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: WRETCH 32 FT JOSH KUMRA – ‘DON’T GO’

People seem to be losing their minds over Wretch 32 and his new single Don’t Go featuring singer Josh Kumra.  I just listened to it for the first time today and it will probably do well in the charts.  This is a “love rap/song” and Wretch looks all “sad” and “vulnerable” in the video (fantastic acting), so this should melt the hearts of all the teenage girls out there. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? ………………………………………………………….. Check out Wretch’s interview with Huey Morgan from the group []

LIVE NATION ACCUSES MATTHEW KNOWLES OF STEALING FROM BEYONCE

Earlier this year it was announced that Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles would no longer be managing her career, and this could explain why. TMZ reports that Live Nation has accused Matthew of “stealing from Beyonce on her most recent tour or otherwise taken funds that [he] was not entitled to.” Matthew denies any wrong doing but Beyonce’s law firm conducted an audit on Beyonce’s finances, which allegedly told a different story, and he was promptly fired.
