The Green Lantern produced Most Kingz is cool, but I'm too used to hearing him on the Grammy Family beat...fits better IMO...

8TH ANNUAL URBAN MUSIC AWARDS 2010


Saturday, I passed through this years Urban Music Awards at the Connaught Rooms in Holborn Central London.
After driving for more than 2.5 hours from South London (the Pope visit messed up ALL driving to West End).
I got there thinking that I missed most of the awards, but you know award shows, they always run behind...especially as EVERYONE had nightmares getting to the venue.



Levi Roots & Linda Robson


Shouts to Damage, Richard Blackwood, Coolio, Tinie Tempah, Levi Roots and all the other celebs in the building.

I was kinda under pressure as I was meant to leave at 10pm to get to Worcestershire to spin, so to say my time was limited was an understatement!!!

I was just about to leave when they announced the Best DJ category for which I was nominated....

I was on the phone to management complaining,'I gotta go...I don't wanna be late for my set' as they announced that I won!!!!

I had no idea that I was gonna win this award, cause it was such a strong category and I've been underground like a secret squirrel building up shit for next year...more on that another time....

I had no speech...I don't even remember what i said...
So after the 'speech' I had to bounce to get to my gig...didn't have time to get more than 2 pics from the night....Sorry!!!!!

Big up U.M.A. & more importantly, big up the VOTERS!!!!


On my way out of the venue with Funmbi the comedian who killed his set at the U.M.A. and my dude from longtime, G Da Money

DIZZEE RASCAL & TINIE TEMPAH: DEF JAM RAPSTAR













This is a BIG look!!!!!
Check the press release below!!

Dizzee Rascal and Tinie Tempah Lead All-Star Line Up

of European Artists



19th May 2010 (London, England) – Hip Hop fans across Europe are excited by the announcement that the upcoming music game, Def Jam Rapstar, will feature territory exclusive tracks in Germany, France and the UK. Developed by 4mm Games, Terminal Reality and Def Jam Interactive and distributed exclusively by Konami and Autumn Games, Def Jam Rapstar is the first true interactive Hip Hop music game experience coming to consoles this fall.



The first two tracks announced as exclusive to the UK edition of Def Jam Rapstar are Tinie Tempah’s massive debut No. 1 hit, “Pass Out”, and the UK’s current Best British Male act* Dizzee Rascal and his hit single “Fix Up, Look Sharp”. Hip Hop fans in France can look forward to NTM featuring Lord Ko’s “Ma Benz” and Sefyu’s “Molotov 4”, while the German version will exclusively feature Sido’s “Mein Block (Beathoavenz remix)” and Kool Savas’s “Futurama”.



“As I continue to travel the globe, I’m always amazed how hip hop has impacted youth culture in every country around the world” stated Kevin Liles, President and CEO of Def Jam Enterprises. “Each territory is creating their own movement, style, artists, and songs that resonate with the hip hop experience in their respective country. Hip hop is global, therefore Def Jam Rapstar must also be global, and provide local content providers the opportunity to represent hip hop in their own language in their own voice.”



“It is fantastic to see such a wide range of both established and upcoming talent, as work ramps up on Def Jam Rapstar,” commented Peter Stone, UK General Manager for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “It was always going to be vital to have tracks that mean something to music fans, and we have genuinely covered all bases. Classic tracks from the cream of European and US artists will ensure that Def Jam Rapstar sets its stall from the start as a cutting edge title that will showcase the greatest talent from all over the globe.”



The ultimate emcee experience for video game consoles, Def Jam Rapstar is the only music game that focuses exclusively on Hip Hop. With more than 40 of the greatest Hip Hop songs available at release, including 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Lil’ Wayne and more, Def Jam Rapstar allows you to be the star by rhyming, using your console camera, and uploading your video to the fully integrated Def Jam Rapstar community at www.defjamrapstar.com. Def Jam Rapstar also offers you the ability to freestyle over tracks by some of the hottest hip hop producers and upload your freestyle performances for the world to decide how good you really are.
