Tre Mission, a promising (and maybe the 1st) grime artist from Toronto, is the latest to jump on this riddim which has gotta be the hottest beat of the year, produced by S-X of Stay Fresh. Check my interview with him here and look out for my interview with Tre Mission on MTV's the Wrap Up very soon!
Speaking to the club’s official magazine, the Empire State Of Mind rapper said, “I am a businessman, and I will always look at an opportunity, and if it feels right great. I don’t know a lot about the business of soccer, but in the future if the right opportunity presented itself, then who knows?”
The rapper, who already owns a stake in the New Jersey Nets basketball team, says he got hooked on the Gunners after seeing Thierry Henry play a few years ago.
Last week it was rumoured P Diddy was interested in buying Crystal Palace football club, but a bid failed to materialise.

Both these are definitly worth checking. 1st is from English and is a vocal over the Kid Cudi/Kanye/Common joint 'make her say', which is a sample of Lady Gaga's 'Poker face'. Tight flow, strong bars and all round good vibe on this version of the recent hit.
Make sure you download English's latest free mixtape 'Local hero vol 2'.
Next joint is from a true UKHH veteran, DJ Skitz with Buggsy, and is called Born Inna System. This one's on more of a up beat dancehall vibe; will be looking forward to 'Sticksman', out 3 May.

Despite the majority opinion of most 'knowledgable' hip hop listeners I'm actually a fan of Souljah boy and Tony Yayo purely for the fact they make well produced tracks with a rapping style that represents accurately where they're from and what they're about. This one over sinister instrumental present Tony and Souljah boy collabing both on form...
One of the greatest recent achievements from the grime scene was camera guy SB.TV getting hired at the BBC as assistant producer. A bunch of different names in the scene have told their own story/cautionary tale about 'going pen' but it was Ghetts' which taught my attention. BBC won't let you embed so just click the image to see it on their site.

And the producer's not from Sheffield/Birmingham/Other bassline orientated area. Scrambled Ed, a dubstep/bassline producer from Brighton is someone you need to listen to. Make sure you check the track 'Bun Tang' which has a Wiley and Dizzee vocal in the 2nd half.

To me this guy's tune is a painful to watch inspiration of Eminem circa 1999, Ghandi and a campaign by Nick Griffin to appeal to the 'urban white kids' (he's the head of the British National Party, for those outside UK!). I don't like to slate artists on this site but the closest resemblance I saw from "Ashdotman" was the guy from Sheffield who spat as Eminem on the X Factor (a must watch b4 u die video)
"im not even white, im a whitey pinkish creamy colour"

JEEZ-US. This is straight brutal grime. Produced by Teeza from Beat Creatures, a producer you need to look out for in the underground grime scene right now. Rotten comes with ferocious vocals, standardly and I heard a send for Fumin' somewhere too.

Liam Tootill, "SB.TVs resident blogger and Music Anthropologist" (his words) recently did a review of the Urban Development event Industry showcase last Saturday (which I also went to and would recomend 4 ppl hoping to work in music) at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green, East London.
"With the UK urban scene really stepping up the levels of late, (most noticeably, Tinie Tempah's sensational number one record, ‘Pass Out' and acts like Giggs and Devlin getting signed to majors) isn't it about time this scene started to get recognised for it's successes, rather than it's failings? The Industry Takeover event on Saturday (March 6) - arranged and organised by the Urban Development team - is just one example of this scene putting something really positive back into its community.
Industry Takeover, the all-day seminar and showcase, is ‘edutainment' (educating whilst entertaining) at its finest; it's all about empowering the next generation of MCs, singers, DJs and young music industry professionals. Urban Development (and their partners Bigga Fish,Rising Tide and the PRS, amongst others), in association with Rich Mix, took over the multi-media arts complex in Shoreditch, East London (from 12-8!) and delivered performances from the likes of Master Shortie, Ghetts, Griminal, Wretch32, NY, Mz Bratt, and Princess Nyah. Other activities included industry master classes, open mic sessions, a music market, vocal/production workshops and a fashion show, as well as exclusive video and short film screenings.
The event was hosted by Ralph Hardy and Shemika, who did an amazing job of keeping the gig running smoothly at all times. Rivmixx caught up with Mr Hardy and asked how he feels it went down.
"The all-dayer was as a success. Every aspect meshed together well, with the help of the UD team and those at Rich Mix. The audience were as warm as I expected, the contributors and merchandise sellers were active throughout the day and the hosts were top notch if I do say so myself! I'm just waiting for 2011 to come around for the next one."
The first seminar featured panellists Ras Kwame, Chantelle Fiddy, Miranda Cooper, Posty from Grime Daily and Terror Danjah; its purpose, to enlighten audience members about the journey from ‘Underground To Overground' in their respective fields. This was followed later in the afternoon with ‘How To Steal My Job pt.2'. The panel this time consisted of Twin B, Hattie Collins, Chris Meikan, Michael Lawrence and Mario Prince and provided further insight into the world of the UK urban music scene. Both seminars were extremely interesting; both highly informative and richly entertaining.
So, for all the negativity the UK urban scene has faced over the past decade; events like this, chart successes and a fledgling global recognition for the ‘urban' scene illustrates the progression Team UK are capable of when united, and the consequential ‘positive vibes' are a real good look.

1xtra DJ MistaJam Exclusive right here. This is a rare type of track where the singer (Emelie Sandie) takes lead yet West London duo Craze and Hoax on the production and Giggs provide solid inputs. Another strong look for the UK !

Congratulations are due to Tinie Tempah, an MC from the grime scene who was today officially announced as having the UK's #1 single with 'Pass out'. This tweet (that's a Twitter post for those unsure of the term) from one of Grime's gatekeepers, Logan Sama summed it up best for me:

"Wu-Tang veteran Method Man has issued an apology to Waka Flocka regarding their differing opinions on the value of lyrics in today’s Hip-Hop.
In an previous appearance on Shade 45’s All Out Show with Raekwon and Ghostace Killah, Method Man spoke on his disdain for subpar lyrics in Hip-Hop music, specifically pointing out Waka Flocka after the hosts made him aware that the Atlanta rapper stated intricate lyricism is not needed in today’s climate.
“He has the right to his opinion. But the people that are in the know and know what time it is, know that if you ain’t saying s**tout your mouth, your time is very slim in this motherfucking game, b.”
Waka Flocka responded in an exclusive AllHipHop.com interview that he wouldn’t disrespect Method Man, and expressed disappointment an artist he looked up to would attack him.
