‘THIS IS JIM JONES’ DOCUMENTARY PREVIEW – JAY-Z VS DAMON DASH

Interesting……… Poor old Brukkers Dash. He still hasn’t gotten over the Roc-A-Fella split. And look at former Roc-A-Fella part owner Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke [mark: 2.49].  When they were riding high on a crest of a wave he refused to speak/grant interviews.  But since being shoved in to obscurity he has suddenly found his voice. I had the misfortune of meeting Kareem once. WHAT a dick head! The man behaved and walked around as if his s**t didn’t stink! Anyway,  Dash is the ‘brains’ behind this documentary. But from what I hear it isn’t really about []

UK RAPPER BASHY ASSAULTED?

I have a feeling that this is just one big joke. I mean what rapper in this day and age would admit to being beat down and then pose for pictures, showing off his bruised and cut face? The majority would rather eat dirt then admit to something like this happening. Anyway apparently UK rapper Bashy has been brutally assaulted and has posted the picture below on his blog. This looks like the work of a skilled make-up artist. Allhiphop reports that Bashy is furious and is out to get revenge for the beating he []

JIM JONES/KERI HILSON – FIRST WEEK SALES

Rapper Jim Jones’ latest album Pray IV Reign (EI/Columbia/Sony) has entered the Billboard album chart at No.9 and sold 43,000 (first week sales). Keri Hilson’s debut album In a Perfect World went in at No. 4 and sold 94,000 (first weeks sales). Jim sold more when he was just signed solely to an independent label. It hurts me to say this but to be brutally honest I think his album will be out of the top 10 come next week. I think Bruk Pocket Dash cursed Jim’s latest offering by saying []

DAMON DASH BLAMES MONEY WOES ON BEING GENEROUS

Damon ‘Bruk Pocket’ Dash has revealed to Billboard.com that blames his financial downfall on being overly generous. Brukkers says,  “My mistake was watching everyone else’s careers and not watching mine. After being able to settle my wife’s company, I was able to start doing other things. My first approach was the music business and getting with Jim Jones… I spent the last six months doing research, trying to figure out how to use all my resources to blow this out (make his album []

RICK ROSS APOLOGISES TO THE GAY COMMUNITY, SAYS HE IS WILLING TO RECORD WITH AN OPENLY GAY ARTIST

Rapper Rick Ross has issued an apology to the gay community in the aftermath of his ongoing ‘beef’ with 50 Cent. In a video post, Ross said, “I heard I offended the homosexual community. I sincerely apologise to the people I’ve offended. And just to let the gay community know how sincere I am, I’m offering and willing to do a record with an openly gay artist.” ………………………………….. What is the likelihood of Rick Ross collaborating with an openly male gay artist??? []

UK BLACK MUSIC ACTS: UNSIGNED UK HYPE!

  My regular readers will already know that I dutifully showcase UK talent on Mad News (UK Black Music – The Good, The Bad and the Ugly).   But the majority of UK talent featured so far has been of the worst kind, and ultimately end up in my Ugly file.   I have to admit though I do find below par UK talent highly amusing, which could explain why I have created a platform for such mediocrity (lol!)   However, recently I’ve been thinking, []

JIM JONES FT OSHY – BLOW THE BANK

‘Blow The Bank’  is the second release from Jim’s forthcoming album ‘Pray IV Reign’ which drops on March 24th. My Jim Jim has done it again! This is one hell of a sexy track and Jim’s lyrical prowess will blow you all away.  The man really is a lyrical beast and gorgeous too! This definetly has smash hit written all over it. Your thoughts please…..
