NEW MUSIC: JAY-Z FT DRAKE – ‘OFF THAT’

Taken from Jay-Z’s “HIGHLY ANTICIPATED” forthcoming album ‘Blue Print 3’, the single ‘Off That’ produced by Timbaland is actually quite good. For some reason it takes me back to the Jay of old. I like it and will give it the thumbs up. Anyway click HERE to listen. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC WILEY (THE ENGLAND 10) – ‘SHE LIKES TO’

Featured with Wiley on his new track ‘She Likes To’, Bashy, Ghetts, Wretch32, Griminal, Chipmunk, Scorcher, Ice Kid, Wrigley and J2K. I love the video. The concept is so original and so unique. The track will probably go on to become a top 5 hit. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

TRAILER: RED APPLES FALLING (BYRD GANG MOVIE)

This trailer confused me at first. Is this supposed to be a movie or a documentary? I was then informed that it is in fact  “Mixtape Cinema – a little bit of everything”. Make of that what you will! Anyway, the people behind this project clearly have plenty of energy to burn and money to waste. Rappers running around pointing guns, shooting each other, handling large amounts of US currency, shots of their respective housing projects and terrible ‘acting’. It’s all so late 90s /early 2000s. There is nothing []

JAY-Z TO “WRITE” CANDID AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Rapper Jay-Z is apparently going to “write” a candid autobiography, which will cover his career and personal life. A source disclosed to The Mirror newspaper that, “It’s going to cover everything from his days on the streets as a drug dealer to his fairytale wedding to Bey. He’ll also be revealing his rapping secrets.” ………………………………………………………………………………………………….. So for the past 7/8 years Jay has been extra secrative about his private life, dodging questions like you would stray bullets, but now he wants to unlock the door []

NEW MUSIC: JAY-Z, RIHANNA & KANYE WEST – ‘RUN THIS TOWN’

‘Run This Town’ is taken from Jay-Z’s highly anticipated album, ‘Blue Print 3’ People have been going crazy, wetting themselves over this track, like its the best thing since sliced bread! But as far as I am concerned it’s just OK!!!!! Others have also said that Kanye kills Jay on his own track. Kanye’s verse is just OK!!!! It’s nothing to write home about! Your thoughts please….
