UK MUSIC: CHOONG FAMILY – ‘GOODBYE GIRL’

I thought that this group had split up some years ago. Anyway check out Choong Family’s new track Goodbye Girl. Goodbye Girl is pleasant enough but it also sounds quite dated.   Like the folk over at Ragggs.com I find myself asking the question, “are they still living in 2004???” The video – Standard video model of choice in the UK and the ending confused me. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

500 SHOW UP FOR BUSTA RHYMES SHOW IN SOUTH AFRICA

Rumour has it that rapper Busta Rhymes is in dire financial straits and will perform at any event that will have him. I was a huge Busta fan. I loved the fun, wild and animated Busta. But when he signed to Aftermath / teamed up with 50 Cent, cut off his hair, bulked up and began to favour a bull frog, became vicious, changed his style of music and went from being a leader to becoming a follower, his career just went downhill. And now this…. Via Rhymes With Snitch 500 ain’t bad if []

UK MUSIC: BIG NARSTIE – ‘SHOTTA’

So this is Big Narstie… Hmmmmm… I keep hearing the name but never bothered to check out his music until now. Anyway on this track Big Narstie talks about life on the streets, jail, death, drugs, and wanting to turn his life around. It’s all very emotional. The video was shot in front of a council estate in London. Yes I know – original! But all in all ‘Shotta’ isn’t a bad track. I mean I’ve heard worse…. Your thoughts please. Hit []
