I've been missing NY for a long time and it's so nice to see that the lady who has graced numerous of anthems from the UK with her beautiful vocals in the past is finally back in the game as she's freshly signed to Cooking Vinyl, and just dropped her new single 'Music'.

Wiley Drops New Double-A Side Single & 'Hover Board' Official Video & Free DL


Wiley's gearing up to drop a new double-A side single the 16th of April (pre-order here), featuring two of the best tracks off his latest album "Evolve or be Extinct". You'll probably know that I find the title track 'Evolve Or Be Extinct' to be one of Wiley's biggest tracks to date with the 88 straight bars of unadulterated flow, jokes, boasts, observation and metaphors.

The other track featured on the release is 'I'm Skanking' that comes in four versions courtesy of The 2 Bears. Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell take the quirks of the original and transform them into a catchy piece of hip-house.

Nicki Minaj ft. 2 Chainz - 'Beez In The Trap' & Nicki Kicks off "Pink Friday Tour" in Sweden


Monday's it stood clear that Nicki Minaj would kick off the European leg of her "Pink Friday"-tour in Stockholm the 8th of June and I creamed my panties (tickets officially go on sale tomorrow, purchase and see the rest of the tour dates here). Yesterday she unveiled that Chris Brown was the featured guest on her new single 'Right By My Side' and my panties went bone-dry again. Sorry, but Chris Brown is, and will always be social pariah as far as I concern. If you have a rotten apple in the the bag you take it out before it spoils the rest of the good apples in the same bag...


However, wife beater/domestic violence politics aside, Nicki makes up for that faux pas today as she unveiled one of the most anticipated collaborations off her upcoming sophomore album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" due out the 3rd of April (pre-order here), yes I'm talking about the 2 Chainz-featured 'Beez In The Trap'.

Look out for the official video shot in Miami to drop soon.
