Its been a while since I wrote something. Thanks to all that have kept the traffic to this blog great Spread the word lol. Final leg of my exams were crazy. One right after the other. Then to take the maximum mickey (british slang for take the piss which is the Brtish slang for taking liberties which the Americans say the equivalent of Make the fool out of me…), my International Marketing lecturer decides the best course of action for his darn exam was to make us answer 4 questions out of six within 3 hours. My hand still aches man. Anyway exams finish and everyone on my campus is dullying. No mad celebrations, no whiling out out. Everyone did lil screams and whoop which would make American Indians really disapppointed SMH. So right in the middle of the night I pick up my stuff like screw this, Im off partying…so back home to London. I have more time for this blog now. So much musicians, so much messings. The internet is going nuts cuz Weezy said “Fuck the mixtape Djs and some untypable expletives”…Whats your problem Wayne? Then the internet goes crazy again because the Carter III is about to leak anytime soon. I actually am not too fussed about the drop. Like I said, I shall have one copy of the Carter III album to give to some one. I am still thinking on what the competition should be. I have till June 10 anyway to come up with it. Then Suge Knight goes broke and is ordered to sell the Deathrow Catalogue. Why buy a tupac album when you can own the rights lol.
Ashanti’s Declaration album coming soon
but already released on the streets . I have some bits off her album which I shall put up later. Whatelse, R Kelly getting his balls squeezed in court. Seems everyone is a paid witness nowadays. I must have missed the “Screw Snitching, Im witnessing” rally . I have not heard much from Naija artists looking slow on that front. Congrats to P Square for winning two awards at the Nigerian Music Award 2008. General feels on the award show was not too good (darn you nairalanders are cold). The AshThomas video for paranoid was out and that was crazy for real. Mad video. Make sure to check it out on Youtube. Anyway, off to wander around the ends (Tobi im calling you now). Tonight I shall be losing my face at the Sauce Kid thing in Reading, got my camera and my Tee, so y’all gone get pics and stuff. I hope the show goes crazy. Dj Caise (Happy Birthday man, hope you had a good one) on the decks. Till then I shall leave you with this K Salaam and beatnicks mixtape. This is what I have been listening to for the past 4 days. This mixtape is hotttt. Love it. Their album “Whose World Is This” is dropping soon (July 29th)
Salaam and production partner Beatnik will drop their album Whose World Is This July 29 on VP Records. The all-star album unites reggae and hip-hop legends Talib Kweli, Papoose, Dead Prez, and Rakaa from Dilated Peoples alongside Buju Banton, Sizzla, Capleton, Anthony B, Luciano, Richie Spice, and more.
