I wondered what was going on with this much hyped remix. Anyway UK artist Skepta’s Grime remix of Diddy’s/Dirty Money’s Hello Good Morning track premiered last night, and people are already behaving as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I’ve never been a big fan of Grime but admittedly this remix isn’t bad. Skepta did a relatively decent job, and I like the way the girls from Dirty Money sing over the beat. However the radio personalities who were wetting […]

Today I watched new afternoon BBC2 show No Hats No Trainers, and rapper Skepta was a main feature on the show. He is an attractive man. I hadn’t really paid that much attention to him before, but that all changed today! Anyway check out Skepta’s latest single Rescue Me which actually sounds pretty good. It also has that mainstream appeal, and will probably go on to become his first UK number 1 single. The video – Is he supposed to be in […]

This week Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs expressed a sudden love and adoration for the UK music scene (Grime music) and let the entire world know via Twitter.

Diddy sat down with journalist Hattie Collins and discussed the up and coming collaborations. Via Hattie Collins Blog “I think Tinie is doing something for us but not on the grime mix. He’s on one of […]

Sean “Diddy” Combs has developed a sudden interest in the UK music scene. He posted on Twitter several days ago that he had just signed his first UK rapper, something he says he’s wanted to do his “whole life”. Yeah whatever Combs! But nobody seems to know who the “lucky” rapper is yet. And this morning Diddy made a point of letting the world know just how much he loves Grime music (The Grime ship sailed off in to the mist about 4 years ago Diddy), and […]

First let me thank Speakz over at Pinboard Blog for bringing this track to my attention. All I am prepared to say at this time is… Tranvestites and Transformers theme tune. SMH. Absolutely hilarious! Your thoughts please. Hit or miss?

Sorry I’ve been a bit slow on the updates. It was a slow news day yesterday and the Virgin Media Broadband service is currently experiencing technical difficulties in my area. Anyway I am back online for now, so check out the BET (UK Edition) Cypher featuring Giggs, Skepta, Chipmunk and Ghetto. Hmmmmmm this is pretty lacklustre….. Your thoughts please……

The nominees are: DIZZEE RASCAL WILEY CHIPMUNK SKEPTA GIGGS GHETTO Some of the acts here deserve to be nominated, but others just make me cringe with embarrassment. Can you guess which acts those are? I wonder who the lucky winner will be …….. The awards ceremony will take place in Atlanta on October 18th, and will then air on US television on October 23rd. The ceremony will probably air here in the UK sometime after that (a week later). But we […]
