Today an enthusiastic individual typed in the the words “World Premiere” before going on to announce the release of Bashy’s latest video for his new single Fantasy. I almost choked on my bread stick. Anyway judging by Bashy’s latest offering it sounds as if he’s going down the rap/techno dance route, which seems to be all the rage now. If you want to infiltrate the mainstream chart feature a sample from a popular 90s dance track, rap over the beat and just […]

I understand that a lot of UK rappers look up to Jay and cite him as being a major influence, but this was just […]

Def Jam’s Vice-President of A&R Max Gousse said, “I signed N-Dubz because they’re great entertainers and speak to London’s youth unlike any other band. We want to bring their message to the rest of the world.” They speak to London’s youth? You don’t have a clue Max! Go back to surfing Myspace for new talent.

Mad News has been threatened with legal action. This threat comes from rapper Wiley’s management team who in APRIL 2010 requested that I remove a blog posted way back in 2008. The story reported that Wiley had fallen out with his management in spectacular fashion. In 2008 Wiley made a point of posting his thoughts on the RWD website, detailing the situation with his manager. HE put it out there in to the public domain that he was unhappy. But in 2010 I […]
