Check out up and coming rapper Chockz and his new track Miss Me Refix. I like his flow, but It will be interesting to see how he continues to develop as an artist in say the next 12 months or so. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

RAPPER T.I ‘HELPS TO STOP SUICIDE ATTEMPT’ – PUBLICITY STUNT???

If reports are to be believed rapper T.I stepped in to help police negotiators trying to talk a man out of jumping to his death from a 22-story building in Atlanta today. via TMZ It all went down earlier this afternoon — when cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where Ryan Cameron’s Radio Show on V103 is based. We’re told T.I. heard about the []

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 NEWS: GRIMINAL SIGNS TO UNIVERSAL MUSIC

UK rapper Griminal announced via Twitter yesterday that he has signed to Universal Music / All Around The World. Check out the photograph he posted of himself signing on the dotted line. Why artists like to post photographs of themselves signing their lives away is beyond me. I wonder if he even bothered to read the contract first. Anyway congratulations Griminal. Now the hard work begins! Click HERE to watch the video to his new single Supa Dupa.

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: JSB – IT’S YOU

Drake was the man who first came to mind when I first played track.  For a split second I actually thought that was him singing the hook. JSB is a new rapper hailing from East London, and his new single It’s You has that cross over appeal, but it sounds really familiar. However I can see the 14-16 year old female demographic really embracing this track. 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?
