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.

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.

New Video: Iggy Azalea – The Last Song

18 Jan

Last year was a good year for females in hip hop and 2012 looks to no different. Bringing something new to the game this year is Australian bombshell Iggy Azalea. Her lyrics take no prisoners and she is style is just as strong. Often compared to Kreyshawn for the obvious reasons of being a white female rapper but that’s where any similarity stops. I’d like to describe Iggy as, gritty but pretty.

Iggy slows it down in her latest track ‘The Last Song’ is about that special guy and I sneakily suspect she’s talking about her flame who’s also a newcomer to Hip-hop, A$AP Rocky. The video sees her rocking her trademark bum sweeping mane and effortless striking style.

Interesting fact: Iggy is co-owner of a weave company and says she’s too gangsta for Drake.
