NEW MUSIC: JUSTIN BEIBER FT KANYE WEST AND RAEKWON – RUNAWAY LOVE (REMIX)

When I first heard about this collaboration (Kanye’s idea) I looked at a picture of Raekwon taken during the glorious Wu-Tang era and sighed. Die hard Raekwon / Wu-Tang fans must all be looking up to the sky and shaking their heads in despair. Check out some of the comments below posted on The Smoking Section website. Raekwon’s verse was actually dope…why are you giving him all the sh*t? If anyone should be getting smacked it’s Kanye. WHY IS KANYE MOLESTING MY CHILDHOOD!? I can understand why Bieber wanted []

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?

PIC OF THE DAY: BEYONCE AND JAY-Z LIVE IT UP OFF THE FRENCH RIVIERA

“Superstar” couple Jay-Z and Beyonce have been photographed having a wail of a time, sunning themselves on a yacht off the French Riviera. Out of all the pictures that have been published this one made me laugh the most. I’m sorry but it just looks like Beyonce’s ‘discreetly’ breaking wind with her bottom cocked out like that.

MUSIC: KANYE WEST FT JAY-Z AND SWIZZ BEATZ – POWER (REMIX)

Kanye West’s Power remix featuring Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz dropped online today folks!  Jay and Kanye sound okay but I don’t know what Swizz Beatz thought he was doing towards the end. Sampling the 1992 Snap hit I Got The Power was far from a good idea Swizz. It just sounds out of place and spoils the remix.   I’m surprised Kanye agreed to keep Swizz’s lame contribution in.  Click HERE to listen. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK NEWS: THE ‘BIG DAWG’ TIM WESTWOOD OFFERED £50K TO APPEAR ON TV SHOW ‘DANCING ON ICE’

The “big dawg” Tim Westwood has claimed via Twitter that producers from ITV1 show Dancing On Ice have offered him £50K to appear on next years show as one of the ‘celebrity’ contestants. As expected most of Tim’s followers have encouraged him to join next years line up, I’m guessing  for their own amusement. The Hip Hop/Rap show BBC Radio 1/ 1xtra DJ replied, “I’d have to dance on ice with a woman who looks like a man in drag. But then later followed up with, “What time does Baywater rink shut tonite?

UK MUSIC: GIGGS – HUSTLE ON

Apologies for the slow updates. Virgin Media Broadband –  MAJOR FAIL right now! Anyway check out “Peckham’s finest” Giggs’ new single Hustle On. The video also features actor/ part-time “Reggae/Dancehall artist” Idris Elba (lol). The track – Same old Giggs but I like the beat. The video – shots of a council estate, Giggs, his crew, and Idris driving Giggs around London. Yes a lot of thought went in to the making of this video. Your thoughts please? Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: STYLAH – HARD WAY

Hard Way is the first video taken from Stylah’s forthcoming album ‘Treading Water‘ produced by Show N Prove! Why do Hip Hop producers in the country still insist on speeding up singing vocals on tracks?  The year is 2010 not 2004! Anyway  Stylah isn’t a bad lyricist but this track which basically harps on about “the hardships” some face here is just dark and dull.   Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: KANYE WEST – POWER

The director of Power Marco Brambilla says, his intention was to create a video “portrait” that would “visualize power … to do a portrait of what power would look like in a sort of timeless way.” Yeah… alright.. whatever Marco… Kanye West – Power (Video), posted with vodpod
