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. * Thursday 10th March 2011 * Info > www.theheatwave.co.uk/hotwuk * Tickets > www.hotwukmarch.eventbrite.com * DJs > The Heatwave, Sticky and TriniGladiata

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 unders

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

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 ear

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

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 n
