Dizzee Rascal wants us to know that he is not a ‘sell out’, and has dismissed claims that his new single ‘Dirtee Disco’ is mainstream cheesy trash. He disclosed to the ridiculous Daily Star that, “People say I’m selling out but it doesn’t get to me anymore. It depends on what people mean by selling out, and who’s saying it. “Some people think it’s morally wrong of me to not ‘keep it real’ but a lot of the time this is coming from drug dealers and robbers. Talk […]
Check out British Hip Hop duo Angha and their debut single For You, featuring Dele. For You is a well produced track, but it sounds very familiar, and has that late 90s / early noughties American R&B/Hip Hop saccharine sweat fusion going on. It actually reminds me of Jennifer Lopez’s 2001 hit featuring Nas, I’m Gonna Be Alright. Click HERE to watch. And for some reason Ja Rule’s 2004 track New York. Click HERE to watch. Duo Angha sound okay, but for […]

This article has given me my first big laugh of the day. New York Times Magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg has written an article about British “artist” M.I.A (real name Maya Arulpragasam), which has hilariously forced the grossly over-rated star to retaliate via her Twitter account, by childishly posting Hirschberg’s mobile number to her adoring followers. I doubt Hirschberg gives a toss Maya. Click here to read extracts from the article, and if you have time to spare the article in it’s entirety HERE. Maya you seriously need to get over herself luv. You really […]
It’s been officially announced that singer Alicia Keys is expecting her first child, and will marry her lover producer Swizz Beatz in the summer. Congratulations to them both. I wish them both the best of luck.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs recently unveiled the “new Bad Boy family” and the only artist on today’s Bad Boy roster that’s worth a bean is the talented/beautiful Janelle Monae. It’s all so fake….. Can somebody please tell me why Cassie is still signed? Actually ignore that question… I know why.
Former Destiny’s Child group member Farrah Franklin (remember her?), who along with Michelle Williams replaced Letoya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson back in 2000, has revealed to Vibe that she would be open to reuniting with her former group members. Apparently there has been talk of a Destiny’s Child reunion which I missed. Anyway Farrah said, “Right now, I’m kind of hearing about it with everyone else. It hasn’t been presented to me yet. When it does or if it does, I’ll deal […]
BAD BOY RECORDS PRODUCER INVITES UP AND COMING MUSIC TALENT TO SUBMIT NEW MATERIAL…. BUT IT WILL COST YOU!
A songwriting friend of mine informed me the other day that she came across Bad Boy Entertainment producer Amadeus’ (real name Antwan Thompson) website, where he encourages up and coming song writers, male/female artists and producers to submit their material to him. But there is a catch! That catch being SUBMISSION FEES. Amadeus who “is a multi-platinum Bad Boy Hitmen record producer, music director musician and is the CEO of Platinum Boy Music Inc”, claims that once material (and payment) is submitted […]
Well according to reports it’s finally happened.. it’s official…. UK group N-Dubz have signed to Def Jam Records. Def Jam’s Vice-President of A&R Max Gousse said, “I signed N-Dubz because they’re great entertainers and speak to London’s youth unlike any other band. We want to bring their message to the rest of the world.” They speak to London’s youth? You don’t have a clue Max! Go back to surfing Myspace for new talent. I am old enough to remember when Def Jam only signed the cream […]
When I first posted Woman’s World on the site several months ago I said that I liked it, and still do. However I still think that they could have done without the guest rapper on the track. There are songs out there that don’t require a rapper to spit bars. This is one of them. But regardless I think the song will be a hit. The video – They all look beautiful standing in front of the black background, but the other […]
