Songstress Cherri V is back with the seductive track Favourite Girl. I’m loving this. With the right promotion/marketing/ radio support this could be a huge hit for Cherri. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
Check out up and coming rapper AKS’ brilliant and clever track The Con. This is his latest dub of J Cole’s Premeditated Murder, and the track revolves around the use of the word/syllable “con” in an attempt to highlight some of the lies or misguided ideals we hold true on a daily basis. AKS is definitely one artist I will continue to keep an eye on . Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
Check out the debut single Glowing from up and coming rapper Realz aka Rlz featuring So Solid star / actor Ashley Walters. The video was shot on location in Capetown, South Africa and is Ashley’s directorial debut. How old is Realz? He looks like he’s no more than fourteen years old. Anyway I really like this track. The beat is infectious and I think it will go down well in the clubs. Glowing gets the Mad News seal of approval. I just […]
UK rappers Giggs and Tinchy Stryder have bulked up their current accounts after appearing in the new PS3 commercial, alongside Sugababes group member Amelle Berrabah. Check out the commercial below. From spitting the now “immortal” line “Niggas looking at me like I passed wind” to starring in a PS3 commercial. Wow… Giggs sure has come a long way.
The four funky divas En Vogue performed in the UK for the first time in 18 years at the IndigO2 in London last week. Check out footage from the sell out show below. Via That Grape Juice They still got it!
Most of you will know by now that I don’t have much time for rap/grime acts from these shores (bar a few) but this performance (believe it or not) was the only highlight (for soooooooo many reasons ha ha) of an other wise uneventful and painful evening. I would like to hear Jay-Z, Eminem, Fabolous and Kanye rapping over this beat. Anyway your thoughts on the performance please. Hit or Miss?
Check out up and coming rapper Chockz and his new track Miss Me Refix. I like his flow, but It will be interesting to see how he continues to develop as an artist in say the next 12 months or so. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

It was announced today that producer/DJ Mark Ronson has now been added to the line up for the MOBO Awards 2010. Can somebody please tell me why the annoying, pretentious and over-rated Mark Ronson has been added to the line up? First the MOBO committee ignore the most successful UK “urban” act of 2010 Tinie Tempah and opt instead to draft in US rapper Nelly as the event’s headliner like we’re in the year 2002, and now this. All I can do is laugh. *I’ve been told that Nelly’s latest single Just A Dream has been certified platinum Stateside, but I am having […]
