I really need to work on the titles for this. I will get there. Anyway, a few things that took my fancy to blog today.
Gyptian acoustic session
This is the bollocks! (means really good). Gyptian's got that sincerity in his voice with the raw vocals. Feeling it. He sings Hold You, Beautiful Lady and Nah Let Go. Nah Let Go sounds better like this and I like the song.
Check my interview with Gyptian for MTV Wrap Up
Whip My Hair songwriter disses Soulja Boy
This is bollocks. Jacked from SBTV. If you don't know the background, Soulja Boy tweeted that he wrote the Willow Smith banger because he's on the credits. He is getting royalties because of the "Hop up out the bed turn my swag on" line and that is it. So the writer dissed Soulja Boy.
WTF of the Day: Lil Wayne doesn't like dark skinned girls (allegedly)
From Necole Bitchie via @Tahirah.
This is disgraceful. So according to the email Lil Wayne (allegedly) got these girls up in the hotel room to socialise (possibly) - one light-skinned, one dark-skinned - drops a sly diss at the dark one, to which the dark one shoots back "But you daughter is dark-skinned". Lil Wayne appears upset at the comment (allegedly) replies "“my daughter is a dark skin millionaire thats the difference between her and u”. Now it doesn't stop there. He (allegedly) went on to say “MY daughter is the first and last dark skin child im having, the rest of my baby moms light skin chicks i even got an asian baby moms to make sure i have a daughter with good hair, too bad we had a son”.
When I check it, it could be true. Lauren London, Nivea and the Oriental looking (not 100% what she is. Could have mixes. Don't want keyboard warriors telling me she's half Cherokee or some sh*t mum are all quite light themselves. Either way, am I surprised (if) he said it? Nope. I sometimes question what was more harmful to the black power movement in USA, gangs and drugs or rap and (black) comedy. #KanyeShrug
Flashback Tune of the Day: Bearman 'Drink Beer'
Remember this Channel U classic? Bear Man killed this. What the hell happened to him? Got a 9-5? Good luck to him. Got a classic. Someone needs to do a Channel U set. Nuff classic Channel U tunes in a club set
