THROW BACK TRACK OF THE DAY: JADAKISS – ‘KNOCK YA SELF OUT’

‘Knock Ya Self Out’ is taken from Jada’s 2001 debut solo album ‘Kiss Da Game Goodbye’.  I have this album and it’s pretty good. Anyway I loved this track back in 01 and still love it today. Jada could have been HUGE!!!!! What the hell happened Jada??????? Universal Music restrict blogs/websites from embedding their artists videos on sites (they still don’t get it) so click here to watch.

UK MUSIC: CHIPMUNK FT LOUIK ESSIEN – ‘BEAST’

I support Chipmunk. He’s young (17), fresh, focused, seems to have a good head on his shoulders, and his music doesn’t sound half bad. You can tell that the North London based emcee puts some thought in to creating a track before subjecting it to an unsuspecting audience. Unlike some that I could mention, who insist on continuing to contaminate the UK Scene with piss poor rhymes, piss poor flows, piss poor production and piss poor music promos.     Louik Essien is a gifted vocalist, so why is he attempting to channel in Lil Wayne/T-Pain on this track?

VIDEO: JIM JONES THEATRICAL DEBUT – THE HIP HOP MONOLOGUES ‘INSIDE THE LIFE AND MIND OF JIM JONES’

Last night (November 12th) Jim Jones made his theatrical debut in the play The Hip Hop Monologues ‘Inside The Life And Mind Of Jim Jones’. The production also featured tracks from his forthcoming album ‘Pray For Reign’, which will drop early next year. From what I understand both he and Damon ‘bruk pocket’ Dash came up with this unique concept. Bruk Pocket who is desperate to become relevant again is now Jim’s manager/business partner. Any way I’ve said this before and will say it again, Denzel Washington needs to []

VIDEO: JIM JONES, JUELZ SANTANA, RON BROWZ – ‘POP CHAMPAGNE’

Admittedly when I listened to the first couple of seconds of this track I hated it. But then when I heard Jim Jones’ voice my opinion changed.  ‘Pop Champagne’ is a club banger and I love it. My Jim Jim also directed the video.  This man is so talented. He is definitely the new Hype Williams, and before long will make the leap in to directing successful feature films. You all just wait and see! Your thoughts please……

UK RADIO NEWS: KISS FM RESHUFFLES SHOW SCHEDULES / BIG TED AND MANNY NORTE FIRED?

Big Ted Photograph: WireImage According to sources, bigwigs over at Kiss FM towers have decided to reshuffle the station’s show schedules and to clean house… it seems…. The fate of the station’s popular Hip Hop/Rap presenters: Shortee Blitz is safe, but it looks as if Big Ted and Manny Norte have been shown the door. If Big Ted and Manny Norte have been fired then I want to know why? They are both very popular radio personalities who have been a part of the Kiss FM line up for years.  What happened??? Did they decide that []
