UK FILM: THE NAKED POET REVIEW

The screening of the independent full-length feature The Naked Poet took place in London at BAFTA headquarters last night and is written and directed by actor Jason Barrett. Barrett also stars in the film alongside Aml Ameen, Michelle Gayle, Mohammed George, Michael Harvey, Kelle Bryan, Petra Letang, Kyla Frye and Fabrisio Santino. The film centres on the naked poet Lazarus (Jason Barrett) and explores the relationships between his friends, family, lovers, dubious acquaintances and his fight to overcome past demons. It also poses the following questions, -Can []

UK ARTIST: AKS – THE CON (PREMEDITATED MURDER DUB)

Check out up and coming rapper AKS’  brilliant and clever track The Con. This is his latest dub of J Cole’s Premeditated Murder, and the track revolves around the use of the word/syllable “con” in an attempt to highlight some of the lies or misguided ideals we hold true on a daily basis. AKS is definitely one artist I will continue to keep an eye on .   Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: DIZZEE RASCAL – ‘HOLIDAY’

Check out Dizzee Rascal’s new track ‘Holiday’. Dizzee has gone so far over to the other side (mainstream) that I fear he won’t be able to come back! BUT I actually like this track. I’ve always been a bit of a dance/rave head at heart (lol) And I see you Goldie! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

MUSIC: STYLES P FT GIGGS – ‘ALL I KNOW IS PAIN’

Rapper Styles P teams up with UK rapper Giggs on this track, although it’s clear that his isn’t an official collaboration…… Anyway I really like ‘All I Know Is Pain’. It’s dark and moody, just how I’ve always liked my Hip Hop/Rap to sound, and I am a  Styles P fan. Your thoughts please…..

NEW MUSIC: BEYONCE – ‘DIVA’

I haven’t really paid much attention to Beyonce’s latest album ‘I am…. Sasha Fierce’, but I do like the tracks ‘Single Ladies’, ‘If I Were A Boy’ and now this one – ‘Diva’. I look forward to the video’s release in January 09. There have been times when I’ve begged Beyonce to get out of my face. Go away and give us time to miss you. But I do admire her work ethic and if I am honest enjoy her music. Your []

VIDEO: ESTELLE FT SEAN PAUL – ‘COME OVER’

Estelle seems a lot more confident in front of the camera these days, playing the seductress while wearing ultra high heels and fitted designer outfits. Anyway in this video collaborator Sean Paul plays her lover and it gets a little steamy. There is actually some good sexual chemistry there. The track ‘Come Over’ taken from Estelle’s latest album ‘Shine’, is a slow old skool flavoured reggae track. I still don’t think Estelle’s a great singing talent (she’s a rapper), but I enjoyed the track none the less. Your thoughts please……

VIDEO: BEYONCE – ‘IF I WERE A BOY’

This is Beyonce’s new single, ‘If I were a Boy’ taken from her forthcoming album which will drop on November 18th. I really like this track and love the video.  ‘If I Were A Boy’ also has a Country feel to it. Faith Hill would also sound good on this record.   Your thoughts please……

VIDEO: T.I – ‘WHAT UP WHAT’S HAPPNIN’

T.I, Young Jeezy – I try my hardest to dislike their music but it’s the production, mixed in with the sexy southern drawl and that swagger… it just draws me in. I wouldn’t say that I’m the biggest T.I fan, but I always seem to end up playing his tracks more than once, and loving most of them. I might have to get my hands on a copy of his forthcoming album ‘Paper Trail’. Any way the track ‘What’s Happnin’ is dedicated to his arch nemeses fellow []
