Rita Ora x GQ Mag

31 Aug

With the recent release of Rita Oras debut album Ora the UK songtress has taken to the pages of GQ as part of her promotional journey. Shot by Sebastian Kim, the ‘How we do’ singer is transformed from her usual fun & funky self to a sleeker & sexier version.

 

Signing to Jay Zs label Roc nation in 2009, Rita Ora was given three years to work on her album and evolve as an artist. That time has now come to see how her three years under the watchful eye of Jay Z has paid off.

 

“You can tell an honest artist from one who’s just been given all their songs.” ..well it looks like Rita definitely thinks so!

 

Ora out in stores across the UK now.

Speakerbox Launch Party

12 Apr

Last week I was lucky enough to have been invited to the brand launch party for UK label Speakerbox which is the brain child of 1Xtra DJ MistaJam.

The event was held at an intimate venue in South East London last Wednesday and showcased some great UK Bass acts and DJs old and new alike.

The night warmed up with banging R&B and Hip hop joints and progressed on to bass heavy Dubstep as the night heated up. Cable opened up the sets followed by DJ Swerve hosted by MC Koder. The crowds got lively as Jacob Plant took the stage with Majestic and of course by the time MistaJam himself took centre stage things were well and truly heated. Along side the cool soundtrack to the night enormous inflatable speakerboxes, smoke machines and flashing lights added the icing on the cake for the event. It was a successful night and showcased some exciting acts I will be looking forward to hearing from in 2012 and beyond.

The Brits Are Taking Over!

31 Mar

2012 should be re-named Year of the Brits, forget year if the Dragon! Right now there are a whole load of hot UK artists making big waves over in the states. One Directions debut album jumped straight in the charts number one on the billboards and have been dubbed to be bigger than the Beatles by adoring US fans. Alongside them bombshell popstar Rita Ora is blowing up on Hip hop mogul Jay Z’s Roc Nation label in the states and on home soil.

‘Hot Right Now’ was a major success for Rita Ora and DJ Fresh on both sides of the Atlantic and she has joined forces with fellow Brit sensation Tinie Tempah for her next single ‘R.I.P’ (Old school Drake fans will recognise the track instantly). Check out the talented paired in the video below which catches the behind the scenes antics on set. Directed by another Brit Emil Nava I think this could be another hit for the young lady!

Drake x GQ: Exclusive Freestyle

21 Mar

On my list of best dressed males in hip hop (Or any sub genres for that matter) Drake would be somewhere near the bottom of the list but it seems the people at GQ HQ have seen past Drizzys awful styling and seen potential.

As you may or may not be aware but Drake was one of GQs Aprils three cover stars for the Style Bible edition. GQ magazine features Octobers very own in a very dapper ‘grown & sexy’ shoot which I have to say I think this is the best I’ve seen him look to date. The rap star is interviewed in the mag and speaks on everything from his relationship with his father to getting women. “The seconds after a man reaches climax, that’s like the realest moment of your life.”

Keeping true to his rapping roots Drake has dropped an exclusive freestyle for GQ on all those things he likes to talk about: girls, money, fame (you catch my drift) in one short minute. Enjoy.
