Usually bubble... All I want to do is tell you I Love you...
Over the last week some news has been revealed about several artists in the scene. Kano's situation with 679recordings seems to be a touch confusing with rumours and gossip circulating like usual. However it seems that 679recordings has been sold possibly to Warner and in that process all contracts were being overlooked to see which artists would be kept and who they would let go. Now I'm not too sure if Kano's contract was for just 2 albums but the result has still been the same he's left/dropped or whatever 679 and is currently label less. Will he come back to grime? Let's hope so.
Wiley however has had a bit more luck with labels. He has just signed a single deal with Atlantic records for his hit Wearing My Rolex. Let's just hope he doesn't spend the advance on a Rolex and invests.
If only he covered his mouth like that on Westwood (Left: Ice kid)
Ice kid and Hoodstars on Westwood (1xtra)
Last night Ice kid and a couple of his Hoodstars jumped on Westwood's 'rap show' on 1xtra for a little freestyle love. However I don't think they understood the rules of that show, no offending language etc. Westwood warned them but they continued to swear seconds after which possibly was the funniest thing, ever (maybe). Westwood - "We don't do this up in here... keep it focussed yeah.", Ice Kid - "This beat's fucked...". Not only that but Ice Kid seemed to be revealing some inside information about just why he left the imaginary label Eskibeat *listen on above player*. Although Logan and Wiley had a few things to say so I've quoted from a discussion in a thread on the RWD forum.
Logan: "Funny thing is he rung me up last month trying to give me tunes and asking me to play them. I rung him the next day when I said I would be in West to get them. He didn't pick up. Kids hey. Poor attitude leads to wasted talent."
Wiley: "I never once wanted him to go for Chipmunk that was his cousin wolf ...and there i am telling everyone he is the one forget [that] all of you I am the one. I['ve] got a new plan watch, all [the] youth will be put in there places and [all the] adults who deserve to be here will remain here. I'm a big man how can I have madness with youths? That's stupid! Only [the] youths who deserve help will get help otherwise travel your own path and dont ask me for nothing cos I'm sick and tired of making people big for no reason. Ice kid is heavy but its time he learned who I am, [I'm] the coldest 1 on earth trust me Ice you're as warm as firecamp when im around. What you need to do Ice kid is catch up to what is goin on and stop crying about rubbish. He never touched a nerve but he is getting boring [with] all the moaning just do a mix cd or something and shut up bruv your cousin told you and ghetto told you as well, yeh Ice and Ghetts vs Wiley and Chipmunk, not me bruv you and wolf stay together anyway lets see who is rough in the end you pricks."
While Wiley is on the RWD forum Dizzee is off performing with the Sugar Hill Gang.
