Katy B back on funky

Katy B returns to the sound that made her popular to most of us in the first place. I know she does soul with the Illersapiens (I think that's their name anyway). Tune's alright, but I prefer hearing her on Dubstep-sounding stuff



British granny marries Gambian waiter 35 years her junior

And she's surprised all he wanted was her Visa (you thought I was about to say something else innit? You twisted people). I mean just look at the happy couple

He definitely matched up to the tall and dark description woman go gaga for. Definitely a Bad Romance this one. Old biddy fell for the oldest trick in the book. Sorry dear, can't say I feel sorry for you to be honest. Demba (even the name sounds scary), you opportunist you. Didn't play your cards right though, did ya? (No Bruce Forsyth)

Did you name your baby Oliver or Olivia?

These are the most popular names for newborns in Britain (source). Technically Mohammed/Muhammad x12 different spellings is number 1, but that's a bit unfair really. The top 10 girls names aren't bad; Ruby, Chloe, Emily, Sophie, Jessica, Grace, Amelia and Evie are timeless. They all sound cute like "Awwww look at little Ruby/Chloe/Emily..." Not sure about how cool Ruby sounds for a teenager though.

The mandem names certainly aren't repping. Jack's alright, William and James are timeless, but Alfie? You know that's Alfred right? Sounds alright for a baby but what about when he becomes a man? That ain't cool.

But I've had a thought, if it's cool to name your babies old people's names (because let's be honest, they're old people's names), I'm naming my unborn, not-yet-conceived foetus Winstone, Norman (pronounced Narmun), Rupert or Delroy. The chick will be called Beverly, Hyacinth or Margaret. New trend.

And for the record, I see no harm in Monique's, Tanisha's, Keisha's etc. The name doesn't define the kid. And just because it's a stereotypically black working class names, doesn't make it "ghetto". Just saying. And anyway, why is "ghetto" substitute for "black"? In fat, ufkc it, I'm gonna name my daughter Shanice. Watch and see *raises black gloved fist*

Nicki Minaj 'Right Thru Me'

She's a stunner, can spit, even hold a note on track, but fk me she makes some dead songs. I think she's trying to hard to be a rap Gaga x female version of Drake and please the Perez Hilton's of this world. JUST RAP! Watch the video though. Not gonna lie, I screwed my face at this yout' with her sitting on him in the bed. When they came close I said "Anyhow he kisses her I'm gonna be vex".



Throwback Tune of the Day: Eve 'Love is Blind'

In response to the above video, I thought I'd relive this classic. How a woman should rap. Rep the gyallie! Ruff Ryders first lady reps for the ladies in abusive relationships, produced by Swizz Beats. Ruff Ryyyyderrrrsss!

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from www.nolongstories.com   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
