How many children do you have?
Do they call you by your first name, or do they call you Dad?
If they call you by your first name don't get cross, cos you don't contribute to any one of their costs. Legal in England all your life, & you cater for pickney that belong to your wife.
What!?! Yeah I said it, had to be done.
You're a disgrace letting them be raised by a single Mum.
You ain't No role model.
You're a Roll model.
Weed habit, taking snaps with a Hennessy bottle.
Do your kids have shoes?
A coat on their backs?
Are they eating food?
Do you think about that?
Do you think about how their getting on at school?
Do you realise that as they grow they Lose respect for you?
You can Gas all you like British - Mutt & Jeff... Say Nada.
You have no excuses left.
You talk about reaping benefits you wanna sow, seeking riches but it never shows, entertaining bitches & thirsty hoes whilst you're ripping out stitches that you've sewn... Delicate pieces of thread that fray everyday.
Unravelling the longer you stay away.
No longer an effect that affects their mummy dearest, just reflects on you and those that are nearest. Its YOUR bad.B.A.D....Your bad.
You're not bad.
Read this and take heed... Be A Dad
B. A. Dad...

Ok here goes......the misplaced use of the word 'URBAN' is pissin me off!
This all started when .... The Brit Awards robbed Craig David of an award the year he had like 100 nominations & not one award. The complaints were so high Brits suddenly came up with an 'Urban' category (to save face) & started throwing British 'Black Acts' or acts performing songs of 'Black origin' (lemar, ms dynamite, jamelia, joss stone,) etc into it as they were not being recognised against the other musical genres (pop, indie, rock etc) or International acts Destiny's Child, 50Cent etc
Suddenly 'Urban' became the bin or melting pot for any British act associated with 'Black music' why not just say RnB artist, Soul artist, Black music..... Why mish mash it into this Socially incorrect word in relation to music 'URBAN'! Its a bag of bull shiiieeeetttt.
So now if u wear a baseball cap, sportswear, MC, or use slang..... you are URBAN? Well what are u saying that every individual from innercity areas dresses in 'Streetwear' erm.... Stereotype or what!???! Deeper still if Urban is a another way of implying 'Blackness or black inspired' then are u sayin every Black person comes from the innercity 'Urban' areas & all speak slang, dress street, make music or can run really fast etc etc i mean BLOODY HELL.... **nothern voice** when is this BULL SHIIIEEET **yank voice** gonna STOP!!!!!
If u are inspired by some aspects of Black culture just friggin say so..... Say u love Hip hop, soul, reggae, blues, jazz, carribean life, rather than embracing it to suddenly 'BE HIP or Quirky or ECLECTIC' & to fit in with the overly wack use of the born again 'SWAGGER' religion that Louie Walsh feels he is the ambassador of!
Was Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Little Richard, Nina Simone, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington categorised as URBAN? NO!!! They were called Soul acts, Blues, Acts, Jazz acts, Gospel, Rhythm & Blues singers, Pop stars or Black Music period URBAN is not a GENRE so....stop palming it of as one to describe music...
In my **Jim Royale voice** (Royale Family) I say....."URBAN MY ARSE"!!!!!!

Director Robert Lopuski has released his official 11-minute documentary on the record, which chronicles the recording process, how their life changed during that time, and much more.

It's plain to see, you can't change me, cus imma be CAMO for life!!!!
Production for me started with a copy of fruity loops 3.65 which was given to me by my brother in law. Being a BIG fan of Hip Hop I knew I was going to produce but it was just a matter of when, I would have liked to much earlier but hardware samplers were so expensive and I couldn’t see myself saving/earning enough to keep up to speed and primarily the first purchase. I was a pretty good Dj, My Graffiti art earned me a HND in Graphic Design, my rapping got me a home town performance (Harlesden) and after a nervous beginning and forgetting my verse which led to me freestyling into a verse I knew by heart I was shown love and not Boo’s and I left the stage happy. A solitary head spin at a break-dance battle in Roundwood Park at the age of 10 when I should have been at home won my crew bragging rights and me some kudos, until my older sisters came looking for me whipped my customised trucker hat off my head and ordered me home good thing it was tilted to the side to begin with, suffice to say I think embraced the four pillars well enough.
So I wanted to make music like artists I bought on vinyl from, Wild Pytch, Uptown Records, Mr Bongo’s, Catch A Groove, Flying Records, Black Market, Deal Real etc then I came across Lil Brother and heard that they (9th Wonder) used Fruity Loops to make beats and was like NAAAAAAAW!
So every spare moment I made beats that sounded nothing like what I listened to, but I put the frustration to one side and carried on until one day and a Marvin Gaye sample later I started to get that sound I wanted, and I got the bug. I would sample soul to metal gear solid and it was working.
And that is how my production started as a simple hobby which I would do regardless whether it was for an artist or just simply something to do when I got an idea, the time and an opportunity to create.

So I arrived at Barfly in Camden mad early but there were heads all over taking in the mid afternoon sun, the evening show sold out so this extra show earlier in the day was arranged.
I grabbed a Rum & Ginger beer and saw my boy Bello B & Jimmy James at the bar so #TeamOck were in the building which made it even better. We spoke about which album’s better Dr Lecter or Well Done and Jimmy assured me Dr Lecter is better so I’m going to have to check it out because I only really know Bronson for his work on Well Done.
So three drinks later I went upstairs feeling nice and was greeted by the supporting act the ‘The Elemental Orchestra’ well not the whole orchestra just the lead vocalist/rapper backed by a very capable Dj Rasp. Wasn’t really feeling his music to be honest, but his freestyle and interaction with the crowd was spot on. He had a sticky sheet of paper stuck up against the wall which worked as a white board, and he encouraged everyone to write random words on it and he’d make up a freestyle as he went along which he did with great skill and for that alone I salute him. (BIG!!!) Even though he wasn’t impressed by the crowd being impressed he just said in a thick scouse accent which made it hit home even harder, “You love those party tricks don’t ya? Bollocks”
‘Action Bronson time’
He strolled though the crowd cheeky grin on his face and a big spliff behind his ear, soon as he got up on stage people started going crazy. He sparked up and then the crowd went even louder then he passed it to someone in the front and the level rose again and then he started to spit. Action Bronson’s vocals are very clear he sounds exactly as he does on his product my barometer for this was raised when I first heard Sadat X live and that guy sounds even better than what the studio captures, so Bronson was off to a good start.
He performed mostly tracks off Dr Lecter from what I could gather and one track off Well Done (Not Enough Words), but his whole persona and antics were something to behold, you could see from the reaction he was getting that everyone at Barfly are now Bronson fans for life. He got off stage and walked around the crowd spitting, lit up numerous spliffs and encouraged the crowd to pass it around and don’t be greedy “Drug with me” he said hahaha! Bronsolini then went to the bar and put £100 down and told people have a drink on him, I haven’t seen anything like it before, people were following his every move with blackberry’s, I Phone’s, I Pad’s, Cannons you name it.
So he ended the show exhausted with an acapella of Miss Fordham Road (86′ 87′ 88′) thanking the crowd for the love and the history made with the first Hip Hop matinee performance and his first in Europe. As expected people were asking for more and he said “I’ve got another show in the evening I’m tired they’re treating me like a whore my pussy hurts” and with that we laughed and he bounced.
I bought a Tee and then went outside and everyone had the same expression on their face which was one of, WOW what have I just witnessed here. Action Bronson is well on his way to cult status whether gets to live comfortably off his musical talents without compromising his style remains to be seen, but you know what who cares Bronsolini is the SHIT!!!!
No need to remove your coat
No need to take off your shoes
Usually you could stay, but not today, not today no
This place is no longer yours and
I left your things here right by the door
Please don’t be that way, not today, not today no
Our love is such a rush
But inside it’s slowly killing me
Nothing more for me to say, but not today, not today no
So we must say all our goodbyes
To all of the pain and lies
But nothings been more true
Than these words to you
I’ve been changed and rearranged and
It’s not like it was before
And when the sun shines
I’ll show her why
She can’t keep me anymore, me anymore

The first time I heard Action Bronson was via a link posted on my Facebook wall by my girl
‘I love that chick’
The video/song was ‘Cirque Du Soleil’ and what struck me first was the beat by Statik Selektah, it was fresh, grandioso, and it has this big soulful musical Hip Hop sound. Then Bronsolini blesses the beat with his flow that is pulling from so many experiences that his subject matter is very original and leaves you thoroughly edutained. Within that his dark sense of humour will have you laughing or shaking your head thinking “did he really just say that”.
Cirque Du Soleil
Terror Death Camp
If you like Hip Hop undiluted and straight up raw then this album is for you, it has a great range of subject matter, beats & turntablism it’s what a Hip Hop album should be.
EW.com reports that Williams, who currently stars on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, will star in an upcoming film, tentatively titled Dirty White Boy, about Wu-Tang Clan rap star the late Russell Jones b.k.a Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The film will center on the offbeat friendship between the Wu-Tang Clan member and Jarred Weisfeld, a 22-year-old VH1 production assistant who, through a lot of hustle and a few half truths, finessed his way into becoming ODB’s manager when the troubled rapper was serving a three-year stint in prison in the early 2000s.
Weisfeld, who had no managing experience, surprisingly orchestrated ODB’s unlikely comeback until the star’s fatal drug overdose in 2004 at age 35.
Cinematographer Joaquín Baca-Asay, who worked on Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” video, is set to direct the picture.

Diff’rent Strokes is back every Wednesday in a new venue.
Launch Night & Second Anniversary Wednesday 28th March and every Wednesday after.
We’ve moved on from a successful two year Run @ cherryjam, to our new home at LOW
91 Jermyn Street, St James's, London, SW1Y 6JB
After a refurb of the club formerly known as Hey Jo’s, owner David West (if you don’t know him, Google him) has teamed up with David Serlui (formerly of Aura) and Andy Giorgini (ex-Brompton Club) to create Low. Secretly tucked away, and accessible via the rather bizarre Abracadabra restaurant, it boasts an exceptional sound system and guest appearances from leading DJs.
So far, this club has barely advertised its whereabouts so expect a crowd that are in the know and eager to dance the night away. Securing a table is a good way to go as you’ll always have a seat and can rest tired feet. Don’t expect the customary sparklers when bottles are served as this crowd are too busy dancing to care.
This club is all about the music so sensibly they have invested in state of the art Void sound system.
Resident Dj’s are: Manny Norte, Lonyo, Maintain, Cj-iDj
£10 on guest-list for ladies and mixed groups
For guest-list & table bookings you can contact me using the details provided below
Hours prior, Sweatshirt spoke on making a strong return to the music spotlight.
"Were you talking to people, aware that s---'s going bananas?" the venerable DJ asks an extremely timid Earl who was put in boarding school in June of 2010, just as Odd Future began their meteoric rise to fame. "I was aware, I mean, because ... the Internet." "Were you aware that you were missing out on something this insane? Were you pissed? Were you annoyed?" Rosenberg responded. "Yeah initially, but then I also got to f---ing see that all this s--- isn't fun all the time." Earl, of course, was speaking of the block that he grew up on. An area of Los Angeles where he could skate and mess around on the pavement until the sun went down. But with the group's rise in fame, Sweatshirt can't walk through his home turf without fans asking for pictures and autographs.
