Shayne Brown – #9toFiver

I’ve watched Shayne Brown coming up for a while now, and it is amazing to see him find himself as an artist. His use of autotune on songs is just right, enabling him to produce catchy hooks that people can vibe to. Shayne has filmed for me before, and it’s fair to say he’s a lovely guy to work with and I will be supporting until the very end!

Coco – Big Bou Ya (Prod. by Toddla T)

Following his previos single “Target Practice”, COCO releases Big Bou Ya. produced by the talented Toddla T. The scene seems to be having a lot of freestyles recently with catchy hooks, with Stormzy being one of the best at it. It is definitely working in the UK music scene right now and this track has already been premiered on the Charlie Sloth show on 1Xtra!

This is available for download on iTunes right NOW here.

Pryme Kingz – Millionaire

Trio Pryme Kingz have a sound that’s a fusion of different genres but is surprisingly refreshing. It’s definitely nice to hear something different. This single is being released on iTunes on the 23rd October. The boys, Young Freeze, La’al and Prelude DM have received recognition from the likes of Nicole Scherzinger, Dappy and Aston Merrygold (JLS) after appearing on X Factor in 2013.

Nego True – I’m Not Here to Tell You You’re Beautiful (Official Video)

With a slightly lengthy title, I couldn’t help but share Nego‘s latest creation… well the video for it. When someone just has a way with words that touch your emotions, you can’t not share their creations. I’m thoroughly looking forward to his new book also. This spoken word is extremely relevant to today’s generation and is something I have written about before. Beauty is an intrinsic quality that means different things to different people, but for some reason the media want to keep creating a “perfect” idea of beauty.

Illusion – No Love

This is the first I’ve heard of singer/rapper Illusion and I’m liking what I’ve heard so far. Illusion‘s music is inspired by soul, funk and r&B sounds, and already having supported Sneakbo and gained support from the likes of Kiss, 1xtra, Capital Xtra, MTV, AKA & Flava, I’m expecting bigger things. I love an artist that makes music with meaning, something that is relevant to the current generation and not just your usual empty lyrics.

Bamboss – Wannabe

I have always always always ALWAYS supported upcoming talent. I love it live, I love videos, … literally everything, because an artist that hasn’t blown yet is litrally at their vertex. Creativity levels and hard work are on a 110%! Once people start getting fame, the creativity and the energy levels drop and they get stuck behind a “mainstream” box… too scared to step out. So when I see guys like Bamboss enjoying themselves making music, I enjoy listening to it. I love this track, very catchy, easy listening. “Wannabe” is the last release from his “Rose of Bamdiggy” EP.

P Money – Roll Up ft SafOne, Deadly & Blacks

I’m slightly late with posting this one from P Money, but this is some serious fire from himself, SafOne, Deadly and Blacks that I couldn’t resist sharing. People say grime/rap is dead, but when you listen to something like this, faith is restored once again. We need the original grime fathers to keep it alive and keep the energy going!

Kadiata – Goodnight

Following his previous release “Madeleine”, Kadiata (formerly Clixx), has released “Goodnight”. It follows in the same style as his previous releases since the rebranding of himself as an artist, quite dark, with lots of autotune. As much as I love the music Clixx made, I’m enjoying this new sound, also.

Lady Chann – Knowledge ft Flowdan

“Knowledge” is the 2nd single from the forthcoming grime meets bashment EP called “CorrupChann”, due for release on the 26th July. Lady Chann teams up with Roll Deep member, Flowdan to create a hit! A brand new sound I’ve never heard before.

Shocka Freestyle (YDK Exclusive)

Shocka has a way with words that I’ve never heard from any other artist. He is SO underrated, but I seriously hope his forthcoming mixtape, “F.I.S.T” gets the credit it deserves. Shocks is on the same wavelength as me, as is “F.I.S.T” which is why I’m SO excited about it. I love seeing an artist that has a message to send, so this freestyle is a little exclusive of what’s in store!

  • [Thought of the Week]

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
