Jay Electronica – Victory

December 1st, 2010

Came across this the other day via Facebook of all places! A Jay Electronica mixtape consisting of a selection of some of his tracks!

Recently signed to Jay-z’s Rocnation, I first heard Exhibit C earlier this year and was instantly hooked. After hearing that I haven’t really heard alot of his other material so this is a nice introduction! Refreshing to hearing some decent Hip Hop!

You can download Victory here

Jazmine SullivanAbout a year ago I had a rant about RnB being washed it’s that time again. What brought this post on is that I am currently four tracks into Jazmine Sullivan’s album “Love Me Back” and I’m getting frustrated because I know in the U.K this album will not see hardly any major success because we are currently a wash with euro dance RnB.

Now I can understand that it’s currently popular and sells but why can’t some quality RnB get the air time it deserves? If you listen to the mainstream radio stations, I’m now including 1xtra in this – they seem to following the trend of everyone else and slowly dropping RnB for what is popular and putting everything in the RnB basket.

Rihanna ft Drake – What’s your name

November 13th, 2010

I posted about this without audio a few weeks back just stating that this is a smash in the making ….well here is the video – enjoy!

Jessie J – Do It Like a Dude

November 11th, 2010

This is going to be absolutely massive… like massive, massive! I like it but I do prefer Price Tag (the chorus & hook are like musical crack) but this has more mass appeal I think!

p.s. If you check this post from 13th January 2010 you’ll notice I pointed her out as one to watch – just saying ;-) !

Kano – Jay-z co-sign

November 11th, 2010

From Soul Culture a quick interview with Kano regarding Jay-z comments about how he is rating Kano. I love how humbling his response is, if this had happened to most U.K MC’s their ego’s would of shot through the roof!

Nice to know I share the same opinion on one thing than one of the world’s greatest!

Daniel de Bourg – The Prelude (mixtape)

November 11th, 2010

If you follow this blog you will know I’m a big fan of Daniel even before he appeared on X-Factor 2007 so when I saw a mixtape was in the pipeline I obviously got excited anyway it dropped earlier this evening! Consisting mainly of cover’s from his Youtube project which I have posted about before – with a couple of exclusives thrown in for good measure!

Daniel De Bourg - The Prelude
