UK NEWS: DIZZIE RASCAL SAYS HE’S ‘NO SELL OUT’

Dizzee Rascal wants us to know that he is not a ‘sell out’, and has dismissed claims that his new single ‘Dirtee Disco’ is mainstream cheesy trash. He disclosed to the ridiculous Daily Star that, “People say I’m selling out but it doesn’t get to me anymore. It depends on what people mean by selling out, and who’s saying it. “Some people think it’s morally wrong of me to not ‘keep it real’ but a lot of the time this is coming from drug dealers and robbers. Talk []

UK MUSIC: ANGHA FT DELE – FOR YOU

Check out British Hip Hop duo Angha and their debut single For You, featuring Dele. For You is a well produced track, but it sounds very familiar, and has that late 90s / early noughties American R&B/Hip Hop saccharine sweat fusion going on. It actually reminds me of Jennifer Lopez’s 2001 hit featuring Nas, I’m Gonna Be Alright. Click HERE to watch. And for some reason Ja Rule’s 2004 track New York. Click HERE to watch. Duo Angha sound okay, but for []

UK MUSIC: SKEPTA – RESCUE ME

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 is the actual headline on the Far-right / BNP website. “BNP Legal Officer Lays Criminal Charge after Ghanaian-origin Rap Singer Urges Murder of Nick Griffin” HA HA HA HA HA HA – Oh dear!  It looks like Lethal’s ruffled a few feathers.

UK MUSIC NEWS: SKEPTA SET TO COLLABORATE WITH P.DIDDY

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 []

UK MUSIC: MANNY NORTE FT J2K & DREADY – ‘BREAKIN ALL THE RULES’

Kiss FM’s DJ Manny Norte has teamed up with  J2K and producer Dready on the new track Breakin All The Rules. People seem to be making a lot of noise about this track. It’s okay. It’s  better than a lot of the stuff that’s  coming out of the UK at the moment. The Video – Can somebody please explain the video’s concept? Also many have commented on producer Dready’s appearance in the video. He is seriously channeling the Busta Rhymes of old. []

Former Blue boy band member Lee Ryan has released the video to his latest solo effort Secret Love. Via Social Writers Blog I laughed when I first heard this track, but it has the potential to grow on me like fungus. It’s very catchy. The video – Lee features a very attractive black woman as his love interest in this video, while black British male artists will probably go as far as having one of their boy’s pose as a love interest []

UK “BEEF”: LETHAL B DISSES N-DUBZ

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. It doesn’t get anymore ridiculous then this! Grime star  Lethal B rants about “super group” N-Dubz stealing a song from him (I think) and then shows off his house MTV Cribs style. The house  apparently cost £750k. I just hope he’s managing to keep up with the mortgage repayments. Via Brown Eyez *rubbing temples* Unbelievable…….. Your thoughts please “fam”…..
