UK MUSIC: CHIPMUNK – SUPERSTAR

Rapper Chipmunk tells us he wants to be a “superstar” in his latest single.  He wants the money, the fame blah blah blah, but “doesn’t want the stress”. Yeah good luck with that Chippy. When I look at Chipmunk and read his posts via Twitter, I can just tell it’s all gone to his head. The guy has one of the biggest ego’s out there. Yes as a rapper you’re supposed to have a certain air of confidence and swagger, but there []

VIDEO: DRAKE – FIND YOUR LOVE

When I first got word that Drake was flying down to Kingston Jamaica to film the video for Find Your Love I said, I bet the over-rated singer/rapper and crew members visit one of Kingston’s notorious Garrisons (Ghettos), and film “sweet boy” Drake surrounded by poverty and zinc housing. It was obvious to me that they were going to go down this predictable route, and portray Jamaicans as being nothing more than heavy weed smoking, sweaty, gun-toting murderers, who reside in some []

VIDEO: DRUNK P.DIDDY DENIES NICKI MINAJ / RICK ROSS MANAGEMENT RUMOURS

Several weeks ago it was unofficially announced that “rappers” Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross would now be managed by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Once the news blew up online hysterical laughter could be heard across the globe. Diddy managing Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross??? HA HA HA HA! In response to this news one visitor posted the following comment on an online forum, “Diddy couldn’t manage a cat litter box” Anyway I believe that the rumours were true, that he was actually going []

Soul Culture reports that Damon Dash has resurrected Roc-A-Fella Records and plans on releasing rapper Curren$y’s Pilot Talk album as the label’s first new release on June 15. Via Soul Culture “Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the ‘beef’ [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn’t want me or Biggs to be a part of it. That’s really where it was at. Now that he doesn’t work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn’t have the []

VIDEO: KELLY ROWLAND – ‘COMMANDER’

Singer Kelly Rowland performed her new single Commander at the Winter Music Conference. This track has just been released and Kelly is out there working to promote it. I like Kelly and I actually like the track. I just want to see this woman WIN! But I am beginning to think that others who class themselves as being family/friends don’t. Solange Knowles has just “conveniently” announced that she’s written a song for her sister Beyonce and posted the video (sneak peek) on []

UK MUSIC: ADAM DEACON AND BASHY FT PALOMA FAITH – KEEP MOVING

The highly anticipated new track Keep Moving from actor Adam Deacon (who up until very recently I didn’t even know rapped) rapper Bashy and Paloma Faith , premiered on the News Of The World website just a couple of minutes ago. Keep Moving is the first single taken from the 4.3.2.1 film soundtrack. I’ve never really paid that much attention to Paloma, but after listening to her on this track I must admit I like her voice. Paloma, Bashy and Adam actually []
