Yes. I had a pretty busy weekend – Saturday I was atShizzio‘s video shoot. I was getting my Slash on “playing” guitar. Shizzio does it big! The shoot was on some super-pro shit. I had a good time, ate some ‘nanas, drank a little Henny, smoked a little weed, copped some sunshine, choped up my hand. Shout out Fire Camp and Maestro, and everyone else that was safe who’s names I forgotted.
Sunday was a day of Cleaning. That shit wiped me out, I have no idea why.
Today I am working ona song that is epic to the extreme. And listening to the G Unit album. it’s hot so far.
OK. That One Time TV continues apace. Today’s Big Jack Nimble‘s turn. Check out dude’s podcast while you’re at it, about an hour of dope rap stuff. I enjoyed it a lot on Friday afternoon.
Kinda. Watch dude rock up at Glasto in a paraka with a guitar strapped on bawling over Wonderwall. Hov smashes it! What a class move! Miserably this has bought ought all the Youtube Ignoramuses, but whatcha gonna do? After that there’s footage of 99 Problems and Encore. Encore kills it.
Last week amongst the detritus thrown at UK rapper Lethal Bizzle by the audience at Download was a banana skin. Forget about this though – a bigger problem facing UK hip hop stars, argues rapper/writer Adam Narkiewicz is the media itself.
I love Editorial Intros. Just in case people don’t actually read stuff mind, this is not me dissing the whole of the BBC. Some good people work there, and they know who they are. Anyway, go check out the article here.
Clever folks will remeber last year I did a remix of The Crimea‘s brillaint Loop A Loop, and myself and The Women played a show with them at Bush Hall. It was accoustic and it was grayte. ANYWAY! We’re doing it again, only this time it won’t be accoustic.
This will also likely be Mary Turner‘s last gig with The Women for a while, as she’s joined a girl group and is going to be a mega pop star! So I hope you can all come down and make it a great last night for her. And us.
The gig will be at the at Bush Hall in London on July 9th.
Anyway, that up there is a video of Davey Crimea Man playing a very lush and beautiful song called The Only Living Boy And Girlat London’s 12 Bar in March. There’s something of the Tom Waits about this song. It is fragile and gorgeous and makes my skin rush. It’s possibly going to be on their next album – a demo can be heard on their MySpace.
And if you haven’t got their current album, Secrets Of The Wishing Hour yet, you are foolish! It’s ace! And it’s free! No shit! You can get it right now here. As if you’ve got anything better to listen to this afternoon!
