Celebrity Smack Talk.

You know about rapper beef? If so this is will entertain you for a while, maybe not a week but a solid 15 minutes. Complex give us some quality sound bites from hip hops celeb circuit for our listening pleasure.

My favourite has to be The Game Vs 50 cent.

The Game says "He's 50, so he'll figure out a way to sell somebody some G unit maxi-pads or suttin."

Fiddy's reply, "I just gave you your first 3 singles."

Kicks of the day...

Air Jordan Force 4, from the Jordan Brand December drop!

Rozay in London

Made it down to the Ricky Ross show @ Hammersmith Apollo last night, was'nt as good as hoped but better than alot of the hip hop shows i've seen in London of late.

Highlights: BMF (of course), MC Hammer, Hustlin, Tears of Joy, Aston Martin Music & Rozay did his verse off Kanye's 'Devil in a New Dress' & 'Monster' which was a nice surprise.

Yeah there was some trouble (surprised? no!) but nothing major so people really shouldnt dwell on that he was on for about 45 minutes before the lights came on!

Can I get a Rozay!

Jumpy Jumpy

A night with real djs, no serato, cdjs or anything else but wax!

Come out & brave the cold for a night of classics, jumps, scratches, broken needles & all!

Shit that makes me happy...

So it seems the good doctor Andre Young aka Dr Dre is finally gonna bless us with that 'Detox' LP, a track from the album featuring Snoop & Akon called 'Kush' leaked yesterday (get that here) & has restored some faith in the project for me after that awful Jay-Z collab leaked around summertime.

Looks like I'll be buying XXL again soon then.

Friday Night Lights...

So finally....Cole drops his second mixtape since joining Roc Nation.

If you're a serious J.Cole fan you've got 50% of this already but its def worth a download...

My mate Kevin Lanre was saying on Twitter yesterday that he thinks the label will stall Cole's LP in favour of Will Smith's brat Willow's promo & album, I really disagree & fucking hope he's wrong...the release date is now scheduled to be March 2011

Tim & Barry TV Series 2: Ep1 Frisco

Besides the fact that I've worked closely with them for a while & will be doing alot of interviews on this new series of Tim & Barry TV + a few more concepts that will come to light very soon...the dudes simply deserve more credit for their contribution to the grime scene. All the recent online TV channels from the UK need to pay more homage to dudes, they did this before you and influenced you wether you want to admit it or not!

Frisco flows all over Guiedo's 'Mad Sax' instrumental on this, without a doubt one of Grime's best at the minute!
