Forget that one.
2009 has brought about many mixtapes/promos/ 'windowers', and with my hand on my chest (yes I'm feeling myself), I can honestly say that no CD has been of the same caliber as 'Autopilot' from Kid Bliss.
You may have seen the Nigerian accompany Afrikan Boy around the world doing shows but I have a feeling this guy may be headlining a bill or two.
The mixtape consists of well executed lovey dovey tunes (no par), features from current big names such as Gfrsh & Bigz (go figure) and tunes to exercise the foot work in the form of 'ABC'.
I'm not gonna say what my favorite tune is because by tomorrow it would of changed. Just know... JUST KNOW... There are no fillers/ skippers/ barely made it tracks in this piece of work.
Unfortunately I messed up my iTunes so my play count is SKADOOSHED but it won't be long before I build that up again.
To download 'Autopilot' click the image (Bliss thinks he's weng init?! lol)
Over and out.
Good friends are the ones that help you without knowing... Mali Marls' good deed was soo nang, I had to let her know over... And over... And over again.
Taking random tunes from her hard drive allowed me to stumble on 'Shakka'. Since I never heard of the chap before, I thought it be only right if I took out a minute and give it the once over. Watch the par.
Mali only had two of his tracks from his six track mixtape.
Needless to say I went home, surfed the web, and found the missing links. The rest is history.
This guys sings/ raps/ skats with that strong British voice, something missing from the music scene. One of my favorite lines of his is 'I don't normally pay this price... From Grove to Edgware, I'll walk I don't care, the leg work would do me nice' (8)
If I had a record company I would sign him along with J2K, Roses Gabor & Adaggio... Just saying.
Download Foolishness Vol.1 & give Shakka's Twitter a glance whilst you're at it.
Thanks to Scratcha DVA and the Rinse.FM team, we all received an early Christmas present (despite not having a web cam and sending my pair of X-Ray glasses) when a whole heap of talent ladies graced the air waves.
Despite everyone being STOOOPID (@AaronBBR context), especially Angie B taking me back with the jams, I wanna single, or should say double, out Shy One Beats & Lady Lykez.
@ShyOneBeats A.K.A 'Saying her name is a next ting' could of blown (PAUSE) time ago but it seemed like she wanted t personify her name. Now that she's coming out of her shell, it should be Christmas for us more than once a year.
Lykez has recently switched to the Rap/ Hip Hop but her old Grime bars and Caribbean influence definitely made me do a head bop on my seat.
If you missed it, have a butchers...
Singing in a British accent is absolutely beautiful when you're British. Lily Allen does it well and Adele has made me stop and pause (no oxy) once or twice in my time.
The way Julie ATTACKS the beat is like a true BOSS.
The Nigerian link up with Skepta & Fem Fel just emphasizes how African's are the people you call for a big tune (no par Chippy, I'll holla you later for that feature).
If this is a warning shot for 2010, I don't want wanna see what happened to the tree.
DON'T FORGET! SB.TV launches on the 1st of January... BARE guys are gonna be tipsy stumbling to their macs for that one.

December is the part of the year were you rejoice that one wonderful person is alive
December... Is my month :)
Christmas is merry and all of that when you know why you're merry. I'm not gonna jazz it up with carbon emissions so I'm just gonna be jolly as I made it to the next chapter.
This December has brought us "we're goin' in", "Autopilot" and "Take That" being released on my birthday (Safe Richard), but don't forget I have a present to give you all once this torrent hurries up
Bare things have happened. I'll give it to you in picture form soon enough. I'll update you all on it all.
For those who still have the Christmas spirit check this out
Peace and love... Rev Run

Don't be alarmed... New talent appears out of the turquoise every blue moon but this one is something like a SUPERSTAR.
Slickmouth aka Kay Rufai has been writing for a hot minute and producing a quality sound that just highlights the correct mindset I've seen in him from early. Not only is an album in the pipeline, the US-UKer also is in the middle of perfecting the street ware.
Don't ask why I'm telling you about this guy 'cus you all know I am a greedy guy *side-eye* but today... I think I'll be nice
The mix-tape 'Traveling Star' is soon to slap your ear drums but before hand, have a butchers to 'Warning'
Check the Myspace too while you're at it.

"So he devised a plan for get at the man through the woman cus he knew he couldn't fool Adam"
I walked away in ore... Ore I say (no typo... Barefoot tings).
I appreciate good people coming out of the turquoise doing & saying things that are sicker than the average (no Notorious B.I.G or even Beangie Siegel).

There's a lot of girls that have come and gone in the game but for 2010 I think Baby Blue will make a better attempt of cementing her place as an artist.
She's on this S.A.S track on a humble one but... Trust me... She's not a jengaleng.

Besides the red headed girl being on a next Romford, Time & Envy, Friday night pill popper flex THROUGHOUT the video and Wiley actually being in his video (He has been in a couple but it wouldn't really be a Wiley post if I didn't try and take a dig at that now would it?), the most funniest thing to come about the new visual dropping is his YOUTUBE ACCOUNT
You can imagine my reaction when I saw this:
Oh Wiley... You slay me.
I might as well put the video up too right? *Now how do I do the auto-play thing?*

I’ve always wanted to do some type of column style writing since I interviewed Gina Davidson but no topics had got me revving to open up word [even though I should be on pages now since I’m apart of the Mac family now], but words uttered by what I saw as being an ignorant mouth has now got me going; oh the irony.
My housemates and I were arguing after an incident involving a girl, my D&G watch & broken door got underway. Words were flying all across the house from the stairs to the garden and a fight nearly kicked off. Level headedness lowered the mood just to words again but as I was dishing out my two pence to a housemate he merely replied by saying ‘well it’s your right to your opinion’. UTTER BULLSHIT. That is one of the worse phrases to be injected into the English language, period. People have lost themselves to society, which is causing them to think that if x amount of people agree with one thing, it automatically becomes truth. What ever happened to objected truth? I’m there saying ‘stop being [insert name]’s Labrador’ and he’s replying by saying its cool to have my own opinion. If someone is wrong they should be called up on it so the person can turn around and say ‘I was wrong’ and their consciousness can be put up a notch.
Playing the village idiot is best left for those who want to reenact the YMCA dance.

My little brother has definitely been taking 'comedy' tips from me... Let's just hope he can take the throne (yeah I said throne... AND WHAT?!) when I retire with Roses Gabor (or Cherri V if she's on it) when I hit 60. Now that will be some school days nostalgia sessions. Blaow.

Too bad for this guys career but if you don't know about his past and present... YOU LATE HOMIE!

The dj 'clash' was jokes and on point at times bar the BAIT clanging (Salute to old school Dj Fewie), the music was of my taste; grime and funky setting the room on fire despite what I've ever said about the genre and the set to end the festivities was ROWDY... And I'm not on about the music.
Bare strays got sent but eh... What can man say now?!
If I ever get pictures from Tasha I may be able to show dem dem dem dem.

I got one media project due to documentate 3days of my life... They must not know that I'm doesin it now.
BUT instead of waiting to January I thought let me kick it off now and get it out of the way... You know... Less stress on my NOhican head top.
To [re]welcome grime from being dead (yeah Logan did say that didn't he?) and a 'honorary' cool kid member and basically show you that iDoAlot too (see what I did there?), I've done a little edit for the blogger mandem.
Just to wet your mouth before hand (no connotations), here are some pics from those days of my life.
I feel so haps right now. Nothing can make me feel to say 'fahk you cahnt'... Except...
Fahk that ish nicca. Absolutely unacceptable.
My bro is a nang-gar-gan. Last time I came London he was o trial for Southend FC... By the time I came back he was already playing for Colchester. I don't care who you are but that is the in ting.
MY GRAN IS A G!
How can my gran walk into her surprise birthday party, look straight into the camera, look away, shout 'ayyyyyy' then control the dancefloor sector like we put the wrong set of numbers on her birthday cake?
I SAID SHE CONTROLLLLLLLED THE SECTOR
So THATS where I get the skills from. Scoom
Wondering why the post is called what it is? It'll be explained in the next one.

I'll do something when I get back to Hatfield later but thought you should all know.
Before I go you all should...
1. Listen to Wale's discography
2. Drink Orange juice
3. Say wagwan to someone who works for the government
Peace, love and soullllllllllllll train.

In a new place it's only normal to meet new people... I met a young light skin version of Cherri V!
Beautiful right. No question mark.
But... 'things have changed cus now we're older'
Cherri doesn't know it yet but I'm her biggest, weirdest fan (it's better if she doesn't read this cus I'm telling you restraint orders are LONG! Cha!)
Check this new one featuring ESKI BOY!
Mental note: Holla at 6060 and extend the school tour into a uni tour. *BIG SMILES*

BUT if someone was to ask me why I love it so much I could give a list of albums that have went through the test of time to stay in my iTunes:
Jay Z - Reasonable Doubt
Lupe's 'The Cool'
Kano's 'Beats n' Bars' Mixtape
Bill Wither's Greatest Hits
Kanye's Discography. No hype
Wino's 'Back to Black'
To name a few...
BUT visual appreciations are far and few imbetween.
This guy in the pink
Did a madness to my eyes. No nothing.
That's one prime example of how to love music. You see the skanks!? MARD!
Live lounge is the best by the way... I just think Jo Whiley needs a revamp. No Sub-low for that.
I don't think this is Live Lounge but if it is... It's my favorite
And oh yeah... I LOVE Keri Hilson

Specualtion flew from city to city, town to town, lamp post to lamp post etc but what is the real deal?! Miss D aka Dayo talks with ME for one side on the matter.
'So why aren't you in the 'Oopsy Daisy' video?
"Unfortunately, it was a clash of schedule, however, I still think that the video looks good with the girl in it, Red Madrell did a fantastic job. I was away in Leeds"
'What rumors have you been hearing about the video?'
"I don't think I have heard any rumors you know... People just ask me on Facebook 'why are you not in the video?' or 'I just saw the video on Youtube and it says featuring Red"
'You perform the tracks with Chipmunk when he does it live I presume'
"Yeah I did Radio 1 Live Lounge... Quite scary since it can't be stopped imbetween or anything like that but the feedback was good!"
Have you been on anything else recently?
"Well his [Chipmunk] album is coming out on the 12th of October so go and purchase that. I'm on a song with him on that which I believe is track 1 called 'Savior'. BIG TUNE! I'm backing him up on that on the chorus."

I'll update my peoples dem on my actually performance @ I LUV LIVE and hosting it in a later post, but the show and words with Tee made me sleep and wake up (to a bed of sweat... Yeah the illness is still about) to re-clock that... I LOVE MEDIA
Performing is actually fun. I haven't harnessed my 'skills' yet but it is actually FUN!
Don't get me started on being behind the camera too... KAI! Once I find a fish eye lens for my HD cam then it's a ting.
MENTAL NOTE TO YOU ALL: Don't change for nothing! It's either they adjust or they dust... And that's Kevin speaking too. BLAOW!
"If yah can't feel it let me touch yah"
Sidebar: Before I set off on my journey, I NEED to find the DVD I burnt all my 'Show Dem Grime' footage on (I didn't know about backing up and external hard drives dem times)
I thought I was a young Spike... (I think I've wordpressed it already but so!?)
Little Nasty was NANG!
F it ima do it now... IT WAS NANG!
Sunday, 4 October 2009
So this all started on the 28th.
My Oyster card was due to expire on the 30th but the good people at TFL decided to make it expire on the 29th mid journey. I said good people for a reason.
So I'm in Brixton now thinking
I had to blag it with the TFL man dem at Brixton. If you have used that station, you know how young and 'black' them man are so that was cool.
Check me out now. I'm in Tottenham Hale station now waiting for that free transport to IKEA but guess what... Didn't come. Par.
The 192 had to get twanged. Yeah I said it (Again, the driver was black)
But yeah, back to the point I was making... I hate IKEA. Dickhead ting.
Jew (yeah it's a new one!?), I don't know how you cope with crystal maze layout.
I'm not the biggest guy. I'm not even the middle guy. IKEA are for big, foreign, preferably Lithuanian body builders (Yeah I said it).
I'm with TWO large up wardrobes, trying to get to Hatfield. Yeah yeah yeah... I'm still about. Luckily the travel didn't kill a a nicca.
IKEA ARE DICKHEADS! DON'T EVER FORGET IT!
They tried charging me £11.49 to deliver my ting tings that were only worth £20 each. I think it was because I'm black.
I said F that and was OFF!
Any piece of paper...
Now to get home.
341 got blagged to Manor House! I had to bring out the oyster and explain the sitch and guess what... Yeah he was black.
SWEAR TO YOU! SOME YUTES DEM WANTED TO MOVE ME UP ON NORTHUMBERLAND PARK BUT IT LOOKED LIKE HEY FELT SORRY FOR ME! Sad.
I got off at question mark, RAN to get the 259, barring in mind I've NEVER head nor took these buses before and my back was on an Atlas vibe with what I as carrying. Geddit!?
So I'm on the 259 to Finsbury Park.
Being with no internet and T.V has JEFFED ME! I didn't know Arsenal were playing.
These two had an interesting talk about how much of a bastard that tall fake Nigerian striker Arsenal sold to Man city is.
Well the moral of this story is....
Black people are actually helpful when they want to be. 'Question whether I've fall off' or whatever Jay-Z said.
INTERNET! (is still not about but my home slice ShyOne has actually been a splendid guest and let me milk her electricity. No conno)
Make sure you catch me on my next visit to London and watch, support, embrace me 'Do My Do'
FACEBOOK THE TING TINGS!
There's a coupla free tickets left so click click click!

It's just the name of my 'home'
Yes. There is no Photoshop or a pathetic attempt to get some cool points (man is too sho for that you get me!?)
My recent decision to go to a university to enjoy my time away from home backfired as the stuck up son of a guns actually turned me... ME?!... Away from their institute of learning to go par with the par. No par intended. I lied.
So I'm at [insert comical possible name here i.e. University of Fartumbria] doing a lot aka 'mind ya bidness dats all... Just mind ya bidness'
Getting people to live with was EAAAAAASY... Getting people who had a British passport, a sense of independence, deposit money and a non 419 mentality WASN'T.
After de-sensitizing the selected few with the use of day time TV and Stephen Fry quotes, it was a matter of who got what room.
Haven't the foggiest.
All I know is that mana man got the room I wanted without touching a games pad... All it takes is a few skippy words, a handshake and a witness who didn't actually see anything.
SIDEBAR: FAHK YOU DERREN BROWN! 1 YOU CAN'T SPELL YOUR NAME CORRECTLY AND 2 THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO FEEL YOU TOUCH THEMSELVES.

I had to jump on the blogspot tip because:
a) Wordpress doesn't allow me to add audio using Divshare
b) I can't up videos using Youtube's embed code to manipulate it to auto-play
c) Google Analytic is a par for my 'old' blog.
If your new to this ting tings then catch up on my WORDPRESS for my (blogging) life up until now... And when @Chedaboi takes his finger out, my dot come should be up and running quicker than you can say
