UK rapper Giggs has made it in to the 2010 BBC Sound of 2010 long list. Click here to view the other fourteen acts that have also made it on to the list. ………………………………………………………………………………… Well this is a surprise! I had no idea that the folks over at BBC towers were feelin Giggs lyricism/ flow like that. And to think MTV Base refused to play his music! This is a proud day for the ‘mans dem’ who spend their days standing outside Dixie Chicken in Peckham – in fact it’s a proud day for the entire […]

Rumour has it that rapper Busta Rhymes is in dire financial straits and will perform at any event that will have him. I was a huge Busta fan. I loved the fun, wild and animated Busta. But when he signed to Aftermath / teamed up with 50 Cent, cut off his hair, bulked up and began to favour a bull frog, became vicious, changed his style of music and went from being a leader to becoming a follower, his career just went downhill. And now this…. Via Rhymes With Snitch 500 ain’t bad if […]

The ‘God MC’ Rakim will finally release his long-awaited new album Seventh Seal on the 23rd November. Guest artists featured on the album include Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Maino, Styles P, and Rakim’s daughter Destiny Griffin. I listened to the album last night and Rakim is still a master lyricist. In my humble opinion that will NEVER change. When I hear him rap it takes me back to a time when only the skilled and talented ruled the world of Hip Hop. Awww…those were the days….. The Seventh Seal is a good album and Rakim’s die hard […]

I just watched the trailer for the up and coming film ‘Street Dance (3D)’ and it looks like it’s trying to be the UK’s answer to US dance films made over the past 5/6 years e.g. ‘Step Up’. Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity team up with dance group rivals Flawless and 2008 Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson. It looks like another cheesy dance movie with a weak storyline, but well done to Flawless and Diversity for getting this gig. Film release […]

Baby By Me is taken from Fiddy’s forthcoming coming album Before I Self Destruct. The video features Kelly Rowland as his love interest and there is some good sexual chemistry there. The track sounds OK but I prefer the video. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

Earlier this year it was revealed that 80s Hip Hop star Roxanne Shante (real name Lolita Shante Shante Gooden) had been lying for years about receiving a Ph.D in Psycology from Cornell University. Shante also claimed that she forced Warner Music to pay for her education. Now the rapper admits to lying and on top of that now claims to be fighting breast cancer. Click here to read all about it. Now if Shante is fighting cancer then I hope she pulls through. But I have a niggling […]
