UK MUSIC: NEW ARTIST: CHIPMUNK – ‘ WHO ARE YOU?’

Seeing as I am a Londoner (for those who don’t know) Mad News will also showcase videos/music coming out of the UK. The good, the bad and the ugly! Meet 16 year old Chipmunk who I came across on MTV Base today. Base seems to be currently featuring A LOT of new music from UK acts. This has never happened before…. Any way check out Chipmunk’s official debut track/video, and look who makes a guest appearance towards the end of the video? None other than the UK’s number 1 Hip Hop DJ, []

QUOTE OF THE DAY: YOUNG BUCK

   “I’ve been loyal….and its hard to be down with somebody when there’s no communication….It makes me feel like ‘what’s going on?’ There’s a video, everybody’s there, and there’s no Buck. Or you see your man moving overseas, on tour with the camp, with G-unit. Or you go to Thisis50.com and you see G-unit pictures is there, without Buck’s face…and then there’s no communication so I don’t really understand why…” (Young Buck addresses the rumoured friction between him and 50 Cent) Well nothing []

VIDEO: NEW MUSIC – CASSIE ‘IS IT YOU?’

She’s back singing folks! Some one up above truly loves Miss Cassie. Or should I say producer Ryan Leslie and Diddy truly love Cassie. A pretty face will go a long way…. ‘Is It You?’ is taken from the soundtrack for the new film ‘ Step Up 2’ Your thoughts please…..

NEW MUSIC: JANET JACKSON – ‘ROCK WITH U’ AND ‘LUV’

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO ROCK WITH U CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO LUV Isn’t the beat for ‘Rock With U’ reminiscent of the beat used for Madonna’s 1984 classic hit ‘Holiday’?  I think both tracks are catchy and will do well in the clubs. However a part of me still feels that Janet should be stirred towards embracing a more mature sound……  

VIDEO OF THE DAY: MARIAH CAREY, JERMAINE DUPRI AND B.E.T VICE PRESIDENT STEPHEN HILL, ALL ACTING THE FOOL…..

I really don’t understand why Jermaine felt the need to upload this video on to youtube. I don’t know what they are babbling on about. I don’t understand why Stephen Hill is there. I don’t understand the jokes… I just don’t get it…… Perhaps Jermaine just wanted to give us ‘the little people’ the opportunity to watch the music “elite” at work and play. If that was the intention then I feel truly blessed…… (rolling eyes)

UK NEWS: FRAUD OFFICERS SET TO INVESTIGATE ARTS TRAINING HUB BRIXTON BASE…

  Lee Jasper Police have launched an inquiry into a sixth City Hall-funded project closely linked to the Mayor’s race adviser, Lee Jasper. Fraud officers are to investigate Brixton Base, an arts training hub, which received more than £500,000 from Mr Livingstone’s London Development Agency but ran only three short training courses in two years. Scotland Yard was called in on Brixton Base after LDA auditors found at least £70,000 of the money they paid the project could not be accounted for. []

Ty asked this question and now I’m asking it…..’SINCE WHEN DID THEY START REFERENCING HEADLINERS BY COLOUR???
