Another day…. another “clothing line”…. Website Pappzd reports that female MC A.Dot has teamed up with streetwear brand House of Hoxshore and created the clothing line Quiff Head Clothing.

Alexandra Burke is back with new music. The new single Elephant will be officially released on March 11. …. I weep for Alexandra and her music career in this country. I know she doesn’t want to make music like this but her label RCA (part of the Sony Music group) obviously have different ideas. *Note: RCA delayed the release of Elephant twice before giving it an official release date* Don’t be surprised when it’s announced that Alexandra is no longer signed to RCA. At this point in time the []

UK MUSIC: IKES FT SCORCHER AND JERMAINE RILEY – GIRL TALK

Check out the new single Girl Talk from rapper Ikes featuring Scorcher and Jermaine Riley. …. Girl Talk is your usual UK fare. A “seductive” track made for the ladies with a guy singing the hook and a touch of auto-tuning.  It’s not my cup of tea at all. It just lacks something. But  the 12-16 year old demographic will probably love it. The Video – A mix of different ideas and style straight from mid 90s-early noughties US rap videos. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
