… The Track – I am starting to develop a taste for Angel’s music (I never paid any attention before) and I like this collaboration with Misha B. The Video – Who was Misha’s stylist on the day? What is that on her head? Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Advertisements

UK MUSIC: HAZE FT SINCERE AND GHETTS – WHERE I’M FROM

… The new breed of UK rapper love to talk about “stacking P” (I am guessing that’s Pound Sterling) and seem desperate to show the world ( in particular America) that ‘yeah London is the new Compton fam’ (hahaha). I find this all highly amusing. The Track – Where I’m From isn’t bad and the producer did a relatively decent job. The Video – The director should have also shot footage of the amount of dog mess that can be seen on London’s streets. That would have helped []

UK MUSIC NEWS: ESTELLE RECEIVES GRAMMY NOMINATION

It has been announced that British artist Estelle has received a Best R&B performance Grammy nomination for her single Thank You. At first I was confused because I don’t remember Estelle releasing any new music this year. But then I rarely pay that much attention to what’s going on in the music industry these days. Anyway packing her bags and relocating to the country where dreams can come true really did pay off. … Thank You sounds decent and has a Sade vibe going on. Even though for some baffling reason []

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA FT MEGAMAN – WE BEGIN THINGS

… “Black chicks, white chicks and the lighties” –  Are “lighties”  now considered a separate race within the black community? Anyway Skepta has done a good job of recapturing the early So Solid vibe, sound and visuals alongside the group’s leader Megaman. So good in fact that at first I thought it was Megaman featuring Skepta. I was a So Solid fan so I really like this track. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK NEWS: SELFRIDGES TO STOCK LETHAL B ‘STAY DENCH’ CLOTHING LINE

Rapper Lethal B ( real name Maxwell Ansah) has announced that Selfridges department store will stock his ‘STAY DENCH’ clothing line next month. I feel real honored that Selfridges is gonna be stocking #STAYDENCH clothing next month. I'm just a kid from the block. #Grateful — Lethal Bizzle (@LethalBizzle) November 13, 2012 This news stunned me in to silence. It will always annoy me that he opts to dumb down his intellect in a bid to appeal to a younger audience because the man is NO FOOL. Congratulations Lethal B.

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – CASTLES

I remember when they were looking for models to appear in this video via Twitter. Anyway check out Skepta dressed like Hugh Hefner in the music promo for his latest single Castle. … The Track: Not bad. The Video: Seeing all that smoke coming out of their mouths made me feel nauseous and now my chest hurts. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
