hit or miss?

UK MUSIC: ORIE – I LOVE U (FOREVER REMIX) / MIXTAPE

UK artist Orie caused quite a stir when he was featured on Mad News earlier this year , and now the singer/rapper is back with the new single  I Love U and the mixtape  Man Behind The Illusion Vol.1 (Instrumentals). Click HERE to download mixtape and check out the single I Love You below. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: LETHAL B – ‘POW 2011’

Lethal B’s new track Pow 2011 premiered on Tim Westwood’s show this evening. The “revamp” of the 2004 hit this time features Wiley, Kano, Ghettz, JME and Chipmunk. In my opinion Pow 2004 was a lot better. Lethal should have left it alone. The 2011 version is just unnecessary. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: CHIPMUNK – FLYING HIGH

Rapper Chipmunk has been raving about his new single Flying High for the past week now.  So does it lived up to the hype? Well like with most mainstream UK “urban” music these days… no not really. But to be fair the production isn’t bad. The video – another UK emcee going out of his way to honour Jay-Z by mimicking his mannerisms and choice of clothing.  Then we have the African theme running through the video which doesn’t connect to the track.

UK MUSIC: JESSIE J – DO IT LIKE A DUDE

People have been raving about this lady and her official debut track/video (Do It Like A Dude) all day, so I decided to finally check out new artist Jessie J. The track – When I first watched the video I just thought of Rihanna and Lady Saw. In my opinion Do It Like A Dude isn’t particularly outstanding, it just sounds like your average UK “urban” fare.  But it will probably go on to become Jessie’s first UK number 1 single, and []

VIDEO: DIDDY DIRTY MONEY FT SKEPTA (REMIX) HELLO GOOD MORNING

Well it’s finally here folks – The Diddy, Dirty Money, Skepta video. When the remix track hit the Internet earlier this year (featuring the UK’s Skepta), feelings were ‘hurt’ this side of the Atlantic because US websites (namely Worldstar)/blogs failed to acknowledge it. But we now have a video to support the track so it may peak their interest this time. By the way I like this remix. I have to applaud Skepta he did a good job. The video – Hahahahahahahaha and hahahahahahahaha at Chipmunk. Your thoughts []

VIDEO: T.I FEATURING CHRIS BROWN – GET BACK UP

Check out the official video for T.I ‘s single Get Back Up featuring Chris Brown. I just watched the video. The video looks as if it was made on a shoe string budget and the track is weak! It sounds like it was produced/recorded 5 years ago. T.I apologises for the foolish behaviour that has landed him back in prison, but at this point people are past caring. Your thoughts please.
