Vinyl Appreciation: Dazz Band - You Are My Starship

I have been after this record for years it's a classic and so far it has managed to escape my palms (not many records have).

If anyone can get this tune on vinyl for me, I will be ever debted to you. Every record has it's price and obviously this does too but I will not pay over the odds for it.

However, I will pay a certain amount. Get it and we can discuss. HAPPY DIGGING

Where is he now?

Where the hell is Sisqo, remember him? The guy who is best known for being the lead singer of R&B group Dru Hill. The 5ft nothing thong man. If anybody knows of his where abouts holla @ us.

This should refresh your memory

Amber Rose

Amber Rose has an amazing figure but dodgy hair I wonder what Kanye West sees in her :-).

In the morning

It's been around for a minute, but it's still a great tune !!!!

Probably the only 'UK funky' tune I like at the moment, slightly contradictory to past posts but I don't care.

Banned Sprite Ad

Maverick Sabre

Back in march we informed you about Michael Stafford aka Maverick Sabre performing at TOTR, since then his popularity has steadily grown.

Described by us as a 'one to watch' Maverick Sabre has had everyone from Hattie Collins to your next door neighbour talking about him. With performances like this you can understand why.

He's back!!!

J2K is back and is sounding better than ever, fresh from supporting some very big American artists J2K has released his new E.P 'Wake Up'.

I am very sure people will start to wake up to the talents of J2K, as an artist I feel he is very underrated but by the sounds of his new stuff he will start to get the props he ultimately deserves.

Don't forget to cop his new E.P available on SD cards and CDs.

Hip-Hop Hijacked by Freemasons

This is pretty deep, if you have ten minutes spare then watch this video it will be my last post on the matter.

Are Jay - Z and Kanye part of the 'evil Illuminati'?

If I am honest I do not think too much about secret societies like the Freemasons it is not a great interest of mine. But recently a lot of videos have come to my attention like for instance the one about South London rapper giggs being part of the Illuminati (something which I do not believe). *Props to JP for the heads up.

However, there has been a lot said about Jay -Z and Kanye being apart of the Illuminati too. Maybe I am gullible, but there seems to be a lot of evidence in favour of them being apart of it. Take a look at this video.

Now after seeing that video, what is your opinion on it? It's pretty damning right.

So if you've tried the atkins, weight watchers and the south beach diet you might aswell give this a try.

The Maccabees

The Maccabees : Can You Give It : Down The Front Session

This is bloody marvelous stuff from The Maccabees, they are probably the best young British band around at the moment.


Dubplate Drama

I have just finished watching the second episode of the third series, a third series that should never have been made in my opinion. It was however a better episode than last weeks but unfortunately I was still left unimpressed. I felt the acting from some of the lead characters was weak with the only convincing performances coming from Mike GLC and Tulisa from N-dubz.

The story line turned out to be a good one with a very good twist at the end. But I felt it was not executed well due to the poor acting, reiterating my point that a third series should never have been made. But due to the fact that the second series was highly impressive and popular a third series was made.

I doubt a fourth series will now be made.

Did anyone else watch Dubplate Drama? am I being harsh? Does anyone agree with the points I have made?

Opinions please.
