NEW MUSIC: ‘SO APPALLED’ FEATURING KANYE, RZA, JAY-Z, PUSTA T, SWIZZ BEATZ AND CYHI THE PRYNCE

People were losing there minds over So Appalled after it hit the net last night. The track featuring rappers that I know and one I’ve never heard of before (Cyhi The Prynce) left me scratching my head. I was confused. Sorry but am I missing something here? What is so great about this track??? Also this line “champagne wishes, thirty white bitches” is a highly inappropriate line to spit.  Imagine the the backlash and fall out (and rightfully so) if a white []

UK MUSIC: JMC FT SIZZLA – PLOT

Rapper JMC teams up with reggae star Sizzla on his new single Plot (scheduled digital release October 25th). I listened to Plot this morning and I really like the beat.  However I strongly object to them ruining Sizzla’s vocals with the use of auto tune.  That was so unnecessary. The video –  There is nothing particularly outstanding about this promo, but I see some of it was filmed in my parents homeland so I’ll give it the thumbs up just for that. 😀  Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: MZ BRATT – SELECTA

Well… Mz Bratt’s Jafaken accent is interesting….. But surprisingly I don’t hate the this track… it’s catchy, it’s a grower,  and has the potential to become a hit single. Selecta also takes me back to the mid 1990s when Jungle music was all the rage. The video – I have a headache now. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

NEW MUSIC: KANYE WEST FT JAY-Z, RICK ROSS, BON IVER, CHARLIE WILSON AND NICKI MINAJ – MONSTER

First off I have no idea who Bon Iver is and secondly why does  Nicki insist on rapping with a ‘Jamaican’ accent? Just leave it alone Nicki.  Stop making a mockery out of the Jamaican accent. The delusional keep saying  “Nicki killed it” on Monster. Erm.. no she didn’t! She sounds like she should be locked up in a padded cell. The woman sounds demented. As for the track.. well its nothing to write home about. It’s just a bunch of artists []

UK MUSIC: SWAY FT AKON – JUST A MATTER OF TIME

UK rapper Sway is back with the single Just A Matter O f Time featuring Akon. Okay so I know Sway has never rapped in an American accent, but why does he sound a bit like Young Jeezy on this track? And when did he start mimicking his flow? Other than that I quite like Just A Matter Of Time. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
