Here is a clip of Jay Electronica dissing MC Solar for tainting the Gang Starr legacy. Happened just a couple of hours ago at Cargo in London, at Jay Electronica’s sold out show (which was the best hip-hop show I’ve seen since KRS-One).
For shame Solar, they will not let you get away with this one dude…
UPDATE – Sorry not MC Solar, the French rapper, but rather the guy that Guru referred to as ‘Super Producer Solar’ of 7 Grand Records. I have the original MC Solar CD in my car – dude remains front of mind as one of the greatest European rappers ever.
Here we go, a classic if we do say so ourselves. The lovesoul DJ’s with pioneering rap crew The Sugar Hill gang.
Shout to Sumit from TheHipHopChronicle.com for coming up with this dope idea. Should be something in this for fans of both UK, and classic US hip-hop. Enjoy.
Another classic on 7 inch with some odd cover work.
Last Friday night, Vik and I were invited to witness Jay Sean and Birdman blow most new artists whole album budget on one party. London hasn’t seen anything like this for a long time. Guests included Birdman and Slim of Cash Money, Rihanna, Ice-T, Alesha Dixon, Manny Norte, Reggie Yates (with Jay-Z wardrobe in tow), Craig David and many more.
Very big event for the UK music industry, indie artists, and for south Asian artists. This guy is in unchartered territory and scouring the landscape very well. Jay Sean’s album ‘All or Nothing’ is out now. Purchase links are at www.JaySean.com. Props to Kodak for the Zi8 cameras we used.
Here’s the exclusive we shot with our friend Neil Armstrong, who is Jay-Z’s tour DJ and a maker of incredible mixtapes like the ‘Original’ or the ‘Sweet’ series.
Part One – His history as a tapemaker, getting the Jay-Z gig.
Great line = ‘Jay’s the party, I’m the confetti, at best… I’m not up there to do a DMC battle‘
Part Two – On his Blueprint 3 tour schedule, the Kanye and Lil Mama debacle and DJing with Jay-Z for Obama
‘Jay and myself were the first MC / DJ combo to perform for to ever DJ for… the first black president‘
Shout to all of our geeky DJ friends around the world!

A quick wrap up of the fantastic night had by everyone last Saturday at Flashback 17. Def London’s number 1 old school night. Sadly no Vik Lovesoul DJ’ing at this one, but lovesoul repped hard. Shout to shamik and lil’ ash for holding it down with the camera. More info at Flashback2001.com or for DJ Rav’s mixtapes hit his Facebook. And of course, shout to Numark for the NS7.
