knee licking girls

First I hear that R. Kelly has written 32 more chapters of Trapped In The Closet, then The Weeknd release another mixtape into the world. Can today get any better? This is the third and final free mixtape from Abel Tesfaye. So far I am loving the Michael Jackson Cover.

Black To Black – A Tribute To Miss Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

She was a troubled girl, but there has always been something I have admired about her rugged charm, brash sense of humour and honesty, which comes out with such feeling in her music.

Video: Joyride Covers Frank Ocean’s Novacane

I really had to stop myself from singing along to this. Ahead of the Player Haters Ball on this Saturday at Good God, Joyride gives us a little taste of what you can expect from his set. With just an acoustic guitar and his voice, he gives us a superb rendition of Frank Ocean’s ‘Novacane’. It is a rather raw recording from the show, I just added a bit compression in garage band. Hopefully the quality is okay.

Podcast: Murs Interview and Ice Cube Cover

Vodpod videos no longer available.

There is a lot of rapping out there in the world. Lot of noise being made, but not much of it is actually saying anything. As much as I love meaningless rap, occasionally I wonder where all the story telling and opinionated rappers went? Perhaps with the pressure on emcees to produce endless amounts of albums, mixtapes and throw away blog tunes, there comes a point where you have little else you want to express.

Meet Murs (Born Nick Carter in 1978). He is not of this breed. After releasing more albums than Too Short times E-40 to the power of Elvis, he still has tales and opinions to share in his music. It is when you have meet with him, that you realise that what you hear in his music is an extension of his sizable personality.

For the third time, we had the pleasure of chatting to Murs, this time about marriage, Osama, behind the scenes of the ‘Rock The Bells’ tour, and jumping off the stage mid set to kiss Melbourne lady rapper A-Love in the crowd.

Kween G (KillaQueenz) also joined us in the studio as we initated her into the Stolen Records Uber-Thug Family as she prepares to take over the show while I travel to the jungles of Mexico to join Sub Commandant Marcos and his indigenous rebel army.
