Hotu Wuk - March 10th - Queen of Hoxton

Dun know it's that time again! Gal, bashment, and Heatwave indoors. Expect another roadblock. That isn't one of those meaningless "Tickets are running out fast" "The BEST event in London that night" type hypement lies. It's actually based on factual events. Every. Single. Time. There is some rass line outside.



Catch Lea-Anna performing Kisses next month at Hot Wuk, London's maddest bashment party.

Rihanna keepin' it Jiggy

Rihanna performed during the half time show at NBA All-Star Game this past weekend. Let's just say it was much better than Black Eyed Peas halftime show at Superbowl (click for TweetReview).

Anyway, watch the whole thing because it's Rihanna and you know Rihanna always looks hot, but look out for the dance she does at 9:00 mins



A lot of you probably saw it and thought "Yeah, so?" but that is a Father Bogle dance! Now if you don't know who Mr Bogle is, he is the best dancer in the whole entire world (check this 6th year anniversary of his death post I did last month). Alongside, a bit of Dutty Whine and Log On, the dance Rihanna does at 9:00-9:03 is Jiggy Body created by the one Mr. Bogle as seen here:



Point of this post? Well I can't add to the previous to show how his dances have gone from the streets to being emulated in almost every dancehall mixin a performance, so here's this one. It's mad how certain people from UK that don't understand dancehall try cuss the dancing element but your idols know and incorporate them. Punks!

In the words of Voicemail "Mr. Wacky is gone but his dancing lives on.

In the words of Father Bogle: "Out and bad!"

MTV have brought together a panel of music industry professionals at the forefront of the UK urban music scene to discuss and debate the best MCs of 2010. Everything was considered: chart and underground success, popularity, impact and influence on the scene, critical acclaim, MCing ability and much more...

BBC 1Xtra’s Vis hosted the panel, which included: Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson (MTV), Logan Sama (Kiss 100), Ras Kwame (Broadcaster), Charlie Sloth (BBC 1Xtra/Radio 1) Chantelle Fiddy (Mixmag), Hattie Collins (RWD), Elijah (Butterz), Stanza (True Tiger), Ara (The Jump Off) and Donatella (Flava).
As this is the first time a show of this kind has been put together in the UK, this may go down as one of the most controversial, influential and talked about MTV shows to date. Be sure to tune into MTV Base at 9pm on Sunday 20th February to see what went down and who was crowned, Best MC Of 2010…

MTV TOP 10 MC'S LIST by the way is so wrong... does anyone want to see the original list ..that got changed last minute ?? lol

@THISISMAXONLINE MAX
the original list was shocking key names were ignored, I think there was something wrong going on... let the people decide right?

@THISISMAXONLINE MAX
Also on a separate note it's so subjective we all have our own opinions and tastes when it comes to music right

@SLICKMOUTH KAY RUFAI
Chipmunk didn't even release anything in 2010 though??

@_yusuff Best Of The Best
Your favorite MC may not of been very active last year!

@Versetti Eddie Smith
Criteria?

@MISSLALAREPORT MISS LALA
Giggs should be higher up, simply because he marches to the beat of his own drum, unlike many other MCs

@KarlNova Karl Nova
So I'm guessing @tymusic won't make this list not that he cares about this

@TheRealGhetts Justin Ghetts
How the fuck can devlin be no 7 dpmo

@tahirah Tahirah
Watching MTV's Best of Best MCs on Base. Interesting seeing whose considered as a grime tastemaker.

Wiley should be slightly higher

@loudmouthmelvin Loudmouth Melvin

@Henryx85 Henry Yanney

@THISISMAXONLINE MAX
If you go by success Tinchy dropped one of the biggest tracks of the last 12 months GAME OVER and brought 2getha some of the biggest names

@MegaSAS Take Off J. Euro

@THISISMAXONLINE MAX

@MayhemSAS that was what made it hardest - twas best of 2010 - but our original top 10s were all very different

@ChantelleFiddy Chantelle Fiddy
What's really good about this MCs debate is that there were over 40 or so to choose from in first place...

@SLICKMOUTH KAY RUFAI
There are some guys on this list that haven't had any substantial contribution??cmon son??

@LondonToMK Danielson RT by @loudmouthmelvin

@ChantelleFiddy Chantelle Fiddy
@MayhemSAS i defo built my initial list on personal preference as to me that's more important than copies sold

@Henryx85 Henry Yanney
List is interesting - especially with the fact that a some of the panel come from scenes where their fav artists wouldn't even be considered

@MISSLALAREPORT MISS LALA
I love Tinie, but Dizzee should be at No1. People got me agreein with certain silent members on the panel, KMT!

@elij_h Elijah Butterz

@KarlNova Karl Nova

@loudmouthmelvin Loudmouth Melvin

@TheRealGhetts Justin Ghetts

@djlogansama The Logan
It is about time there was recognition for people outside of how many records they sold or how much TV time they got.

@djlogansama The Logan
Cos to be honest chart positions and such are irrelevant to me. That's not my world.

@TheRealGhetts Justin Ghetts
It all went wrong when I saw devlin at number 7

@Jpizzledizzle Joseph JP Patterson
OK, so a lot of people aren't happy about the list. It was for efforts made in 2010, not 2011. Please think about it...

@SLICKMOUTH KAY RUFAI
Why am I hearing.'what about Wretch?' the list was about Best Uk mc's in 2010..what did he do in 2010 tho??NOTHING?

@hiphopchronicle Sumit
@Jpizzledizzle everyone is gonna have their opinions, dont worry about it. I didnt manage to see it but will try when its online.

@ChantelleFiddy Chantelle Fiddy
@XianLoves it's important to know the facts also - people had voted on different criteria and confusion and explanation meant change

@ChantelleFiddy Chantelle Fiddy
@XianLoves and there are 100s of emails arguing back and forth - my point - context is important.

@THISISMAXONLINE MAX
Be clear and stick to the criteria you set

@XianLoves ❤ Xi'an Loves ❤
@ChantelleFiddy yeah I hear all of that! I'm shocked the list wasn't changed more times to be honest lol. Its a very hard topic to debate

@ChantelleFiddy Chantelle Fiddy
@XianLoves oh it was - it changed about 20 times over four hours

@XianLoves ❤ Xi'an Loves ❤
@ChantelleFiddy I was thinking about this earlier... Remember the whole F64 debate? General public had the chance to vote that & still were

As One Gone, A Next One Born (Again)

Yesterday we all mourned the loss of Ronaldo's football career as he announced his retirement.

If you didn't mark the page for R9's in the catalogue you knew you couldn't dare ask your parents to buy, you missed out on a vital part of your childhood.

Salute to the greatest striker of our time.



Just before I logged on to Twitter, one of the top tweets on the main page said: "Congratulations to one of my favorite opponents and greatest rivals on returning to the WWE. The Rock is the BEST promo man of all time..." by Chris Jericho

I got fully gassed (borderline hyperventilation) at this news. Went straight to YouTube and found this:



GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSED!!!

FAO: Single Gal Dem on Valentines

Today's Valentines. I know you're feeling a little lonely so I thought I'd dedicate a little post to all of you.

Check the "Single Girl Selection"

Read in a dancehall soundman voice for full effect. If you don't know what that is, read normally. But you won't get the full effect. Obviously.

All of the girls that know you don't need a man, walk out on this one (walk out = make yourself known, so girls walk back-and-forth with pride in dancehall parties)

Destiny's Child 'Independent Ladies'



If you know you won't settle for less than the best give me some signal (noise, hands in the air, phone light etc.)

TLC 'No Scrubs'



Do something to this one. Not sure what so I'll leave the floor open for you. Sing along crew?

P!nk 'Most Girls'



From you know you do it better than your ex, do a dainty whine

Tweet 'Oops (Oh My)'



If you're single, you may relate to this (unless you're single 'cos you're butters... inside obviously):

Amber aka PhreshMENtality (just noticed the subliminal in the name still) 'Single'



And if you are feeling down about yourself, turn this one up loud

TLC 'Unpretty'



If you do have a man

Buss a blank for your true friend on this one

702 'Where My Girls At?'



And from you know you never had to play hide and seek 'cos you send it out like direct debit on pay day, walk out (if you get it, you get it. And yes, I have lyrics to intro a tune pon sound)

Gaza Slim 'One Man'



As for me?

"Over me, out a road nuff gal a mad over me..."

#FreeBujuBanton 'Too Bad'



+

"You don't see it's me every girl goes mad over"

Mavado 'Gal A Mad Ova'



But tweet me some compliments 'cos... erm... compliments never go a miss. I'll fill you stocking for you #NoXmas / #MoreLikeXXXmas / "mas" = more in Spanish, right?

Lastly, a song for the lovers out there

Jah Cure 'You'll Never Find'



And mandem after the meal and desert draw for your rubbers (no eraser) and listen to this. Gotta break even, son

Wayne Marshall 'Good Love'



p.s. those two in the video Wayne Marshall and singer Tami Chynn are married. With that knowledge you'll probably enjoy the video even more. I think the little boy is Marshall's son

Flashback Friday: End Credits Tunes

Yeaaahhh it's baaaa-aaaack! FlashBack Friday's inna ya area. For previous episodes click here.

Today I'm appreciating some of my favourite show theme tunes. Shows that no longer exist. Hence end credits

Grange Hill

The tune that inspired this topic. Randomly popped in my head today. Many older people probably rated the older theme tune, but man-a-youngster and this is a skankers



The Bill

I used to copy the walk in my living room. I didn't work out they were just walking 'til long time after. Used to kick my heels way back.



Keenan and Kel

This is arguably the greatest opening credits of my generation. Had the streets on smash. Beat is mucky



Cousin Skeeter

This r&b banger went all the way in! Skeeter got a dubplate of 702 'Steelo'. Program was rubbish but it had Meagan Goode and a banging tune



In The House

I didn't like anything apart from Mercedes and the tune. Besides it came on at 3.30 pm. Thugs like me never got in that early from school



Desmonds

Sadly, I can't get the theme song due to copyright and blocked in my country (see here). However, who remembers the spin-off Pork Pie? What you mean no? You know why innit? 'Cos it was rubbish!



If you want to watch re-runs you can on YouTube click this episode then look for other ones.

Oh look, I found a poor quality end credits, but no lyrics.



Doug

Skeng man with only a few shreds of hair but skeng all the same.



RIP all you programs. Your tune are sorely missed. Even if you aren't

And again, and again

Context MC featuring Vertex

This video is sick! Weren't feeling the Giggs sound-a-like though. Hol' tight my dargs JP, SB and Ed in the video (calling them my dargs is proper breddin' (begging friendship))



Yasmin A64

This is good still. The comments are jokes. Click the video to see it in YouTube then read comments. Ladies, you will be offended.



But the reason I am posting is this,

If you're a badman/badwoman, tell me she isn't Andrea Corr from The Corrs. Facially pleasing and same voice.



I just worked it out. Yes, all by myself. Oh yeah, another thing I did all by myself is remixed HATERS = "Having Anger Towards Everyone Reaching Success" to "Honest Analytical Thoughts Eradicating Ridiculous SH*T!" How you like me now son? *b-boy stance* *Famous stand up* (RIP Mr. Bogle)

Girl dies in surgery attempt at bigger bum

Poor thing. Think she wanted a new bum to become a star in hip hop videos if the stories are true (lol at The Daily Mail using The Sun as a source). Tragic.

Tarrus Riley returns with another anthem

“The blood of African kings runs in my veins/ Here in Jamaica, rebellious offspring… And this warrior spirit inside come [to] break every shackle and chain”
is the empowering opening statement by prolific reggae singer Tarrus Riley lifted from his new single ‘Shaka Zulu Pickney’ (“Pickney” is Jamaican patois for child/children).

Red the rest of what I wrote here

Black History Month in America. This is the perfect anthem.

We's baaaack

Dunno how long for but I've got the time to blog and actually source things today.

So first off,

Happy belated Birthday to the greatest artist in the history of music, Bob Marley. Inspired by Soul Culture

It was his 66th on Sunday. He still lives on so I won't speak of him in past tense. Basically, if your name isn't Elvis or Michael Jackson, you can not enter the debate as to who is the greatest of all time in my opinion. Not only is Bob a musical icon, he brought a whole genre and a religious movement to the world. We have Rastamouse on Cbeebies because of Bob Marley. It's that real.

The Playing for Change foundation and band released this cover of Redemption Song which features impressive vocals from Bob's son Stephen and the great man himself in form of footage from his final tour.



"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our mind" has to be one of my favourite lyrics of all time.

Chipmunk currently sitting at number 1

Jacked from RWD. Christopher Brown and Chipmunk are sitting comfortably at number 1 in the midweeks knocking off Jessie J's Price Tag momentarily. So Chipmunk looks to be the only guy to beat the sophomore curse at the moment (Tinchy failed, Tinie hasn't had the chance to repeat yet). Really and truly it shows he had confidence in himself for a reason.

Here he is performing with Loick Essien on daytime TV show, This Morning. The show for mum's and JSA claimers (unemployed)



Unlucky on messing up Loick but don't worry about it pal. It must be a change from singing your own song, ay?

Anyway check this interesting Chipmunk interview by Amaru Don. He definitely understands the music game and instead of bawling when it goes tits up, he's implementing it



New Wretch is a teyoon

I think this is the song I got told about the week of Traktor's release. If it is, it's a quality song. Not sure if it's single material to be honest but a solid album track, definitely. "Not sure" = it may work but I have no idea. I think this has more a favourite track off the album type track or a third/fourth single vibe. I'm properly feeling it though.

Wretch on a soulful vibe talking about his girl.



Real Badman Never Afraid: Eagle Eye Cherry 'Save Tonight'

If you don't rate this banger we can't be friends. I think this is from '95/'96. Reminds me of good times I'd play knock down ginger, Championship Manager or ride my push bike to the local park with friends. I'm sure it was a summertime as well. Turkey burger with two slices of bread is all I survived on them times. Well you can tell it's old, MTV are showing videos.

The video is sick too. He does an Eddie Murphy a.k.a. "let me be everyone"



Throwback Tune of the Day: Sisqo 'Got To Get It'

Remember when Sisqo was the man? Times when youths were spraying their hair gold like how you get bald dudes growing a beard to match Rick Ross. So much so we let this little puny, platinum haired dude get away with singing "What these bit*hes want from a ni*ga". Yeah, I can't believe it in hindsight either. Big tune though.

Sisqo had bangers, and had the quintessential 90s r&b crooner characteristics. Short, stressed vocals, a lot of bending knees and head nodding when holding long words. Let's not forget the elongated or constant repetition of "Yeahhhhhh" that he borrowed from K-Ci. And he pimped the Chinese culture, Martial Arts-inspired moves harrrrd!

Incomplete was every girl and moist man's tuuuuuuuuuune, Thong Song was for everyone, but Got To Get It isn't as bait and was a tune too. Hold tight the discount price DMX on the feature better known as Make It Hot. And that he certainly didn't do. Who the hell was he? He was the engineer with voice distortion innit? Never heard of him before or from him since.

@DJTrevorNelson Trevor Nelson
Superbowl halftime show was all about production mo money mo production

@PinBoardBlog PinBoardBlog.com
so aside from the game itself, is that the Superbowl over now?

Final thought: after seeing Black Eyed Peas on a few occasions (TV NEVER in concert), I've arrived at the conclusion that they are a multi-cultural JEdward
