PIGEON FACE EXCLUSIVE: SKEPTA HAS HIS SAY...





Caught up with Skepta last night at the Nightmare rave, whilst standing at the bus stop waiting for the N55. Obviously if you don't know what's been happening between Manga, Wiley / Roll Deep and Big H and Paper Pabs/ Bloodline then you have been on one long hibernation. Skepta's name has been flung into the equation first by Wiley and then by Big H. Apparently there's a shadow going about that people keep stepping into. So good old Pigeon Face flew down to give you the low down, to take away the hype from the tweets and indirects, and see what really is happening behind the filmed phone calls and gassing footage. Skepta talks... Excuse JP & me we were slyly little drunk... and I was swine flu'ed out. Obviously..... haha.

Surely the hype and talk is done and over with now right!? From now please no more talk talk talk. If you do grime and you write lyrics then why oh why are you talking. War Report Part 2 or just draw for the turkey and stuffing and enjoy Christmas.

PIGEON FACE - YOUNG KYE FREESTYLE AND MANGA DISCUSS PAPER PABS





Young Kye (who was recently announced as one of the Top 5 MCs to watch for 2010 by Fabric) has been around for quite a while, but took a break for a hot minute like myself but is back on this. So Pigeon Face got him down to see if he could handle some dubstep (Define & Amazing Feat Rowl - Marshmellow Mindrush) and he tore it up, although when Coki's Goblin came in, the bass slyly surprised him haha. Like most MCs he produces as well and from what I've heard he's decent, but without anything to show you right now I'm not going to big it up, I'll let the epic beat I heard speak for itself.

Then we come to the whole Manga, Roll Deep Vs Bloodline dispute which I've tried to hold myself from commenting on, because I really don't want to get shot... but fuck it my post in the next couple days will probably result in that. Can't wait. We were randomly sitting in a kebab shop when Manga, Young Kye and J2K rolled through and some random guy felt the need to sit down with us and air his kebab breathed opinions on the whole Paper Pabs Vs Manga & his glasses situation. It got a little controversial when the random guy got a little too excited and started sending for Pabs himself. The random is not JP even though they actualllllly look like twins.

PIGEON FACE - DIRTY CANVAS 18.12.09 LIVE and DIRECT





Was a great night haven't been to a Dirty Canvas in Yonks. Filmed a few highlights on the old cam but don't get excited it's not some next high quality where you can see a guys pimples although the audio is pretty decent, I was there to actually enjoy the night so the camera is mad shaky because obviously if reloads are happening and I'm standing still, I've been spiked by your grandad. Pigeon Face isn't about having the best of the best but it's more about having fun and catching some random footage that you most likely wouldn't see.

Back to the night though, Younger remember him? yes you you shut your mouth got a nice reload. Fuda Guy, Rapid, P Money, Blacks, Little Nasty, Dizzle Kid, Younger and Maxsta all introduced the hype to a packed venue for DJ Magic's Grime & Dubstep set. Badness literally jumped in for 10seconds with DEM DEM DEM DEM got a reload and then passed the mic on. D Double E and Footsie the pair of Newham Generals took to the stage. Now I've watched these both many many many times. Always been a great show, but even though in general they gave a decent performance it lacked something. I don't know if it's because 97% of the set was dubstep, which I understand is their thing - a dominent Dubstep edge which seems to work single wise but sometimes it's just too much, some grime up in there would of been nice. Seriously. One thing I must say is DJ Magic is seriously a sly epic leng man selector, he genuinely doesn't get enough ratings.

That is the only person on God's earth who you should have a problem with...

Black The Ripper & Jammer twitter tapping hype. no fun.

jamvsbtr

It's kind of old now but hey i will still address it because i think seeing these two clash lyrically would be the most dullest and randomness thing ever simply because Jammer is a party animal on a next murk a man hype and takes bare bass to be woken up while Black The Ripper talks about well... I can't think right this second but it's more on a slow hiphop tempo. It would be like getting big bird from sesame street to fight the cookie monster. The hype I want to see is in a hair war who would win. Like seriously who would whip the other into shape? would Jammer strangle BTR with his dreadlock or would Jammer get chocked with a mouthful of the Rippers fro. If only Pak's was opened 24/7 I'd organise this while sitting in the corner getting these full blown beauties. Just imagine if they delivered. nah low it. Nandos need to start delivery but hey that's a whole other argument all together.

If you ain't on a twitter hype you're a neek, more than if you live by 140 characters, go here to see what blew off a couple weeks ago with Black The Ripper & Jammer.

P.S: Me even bothering to post this means their is a lack of quality stuff out. Come on people be creative. Experiment and work with new people and not just the same old same old same old.

NOW HE IS SO REAL. SIGN HIM NOW. SWAGGER TO THE MAX.



Forget Tinchy, Devlin, BBK, Ghetto etc... invest in this amazing quality music. I proper wish my dad had mad money and worked in advertisement like this little shit. When Chav's have money part 1. He's the next to blow, your eardrum with this waste material. If you watched this more than once or requested it on AKA, I would like to kill you slowly.

Radio Gaga...



I've missed some of the main guys in grime, who leave a mark when they go off for months/years at a time, I was mighty surprised over the last couple of days to tune into RINSE and hear Trim & Flow Dan hitting up the mic. Flow stop doing naughty things and going pen. I saw you at 9am the other week at waterloo station but you failed to wave back to my fanatical waving. par. Maybe he just didn't see me. I was sad to see all your cainrows are gone. sad times.

Logan Sama (KISS) - D Double E, Footsie, Smurfie Syco & Badness

I woke today and now I'm an official part time MC, Producer, DJ and caretaker

People make me laugh sometimes, the constant (and I mean constant) crap that comes out of some of your mouths cracks me up. The unoriginal, general complete turd of ideas that you chat about and sometimes even go through with is the highlight of my day. Day? Ok realistically I won't even be dramatic let's just go back to when I first started this blog yes people like what 3 long damn years ago. How many MC's, producers and DJ's have gone through the "Yeah, Yeah check out my new swag 'mixtape' in the next month cough (6years later air)" talk the damn talk but can't even crawl. Sometimes it makes me respect a lot of the people who're still about 'hustling' if I can even call it that. Putting the work in and still making people buss a skank. It brings me back to a song from a couple years back..Wiley Featuring JME - Heart Ain't In It. ...Don't do it if your heart ain't in it, I do cos im in it to win it cos i got lyrics, i'll be in the games till the whole games finished, some of you's give up because your heart ain't in it...". I went away for a year and mc's are still waffling on about the same mixtape that still hasn't dropped. Wasteman's they're tagged as, so I wondered just how easy is it to become one of these so called idiots. Or if I was to put it nicely job-challenged individuals, but I'm not trying to put it nicely so I'll call them waste any guy mc's. Is there some sort of guide that these aspiring avocado's abide by, or do they just do nothing in their power to look, sound and make lovers of underground music despise them. If there wasn't now there is... introducing...



Rule 1: Never under any circumstances tell the truth (lyrics or everyday life)

Rule 2: Even though you still live off money from your dad and nan (hold tight nanny nell and her primark joggers she buys you) never be humble or thank anyone for helping you out. Don't want people to actually like you, cos if they respect you then thats a battyman flex, surely.

Rule 3
: When you are fresh of the new titled mc boat and some stupid silly promoter (they must be stupid to book you) asked you to jump on the mic at their night or do a p.a etc always ask for no less than 8 bills. Come on a super star big man like yourself should never leave his house (your mums house) for less than a G but hey you're doing him a favor for being so amazing, right!? I mean how many raves/nights/birthday parties that your aunty held have you been booked for in the last year and got paid? oh 2? wow... yeah you're a big man.

Rule 4: Do a Crep Check for Grimedaily.com and make sure to neatly write prada in crayons on your £3 canvas shoes so no 1 clocks the reality of your budget or just do what everyone else does: go out that day and buy new 'exclusive' to JD creps, go on while licking your lips that you just threw them on and didn't even clock you was meeting with posty. Hold the receipt tightly in your hand, so one doesn't misplace or lose it, then as soon as they're out of sight run back to the store and get a refund.

Rule 5: When a Journalistic, blogger or anyone with a pen and paper asks you - (by the way don't send any music out! are you silly? people might actually like it and want to help you by letting people know how good it is.) to send them a copy to review for their magazine etc... send them a link to rhythm division's website. True Stories.

Rule 6
: The interview. Don't worry I don't mean job interview, the job center ain't clocked on about your bad football injury that never happened so you'll still be getting that £60 every fortnight for your crack. Lemon. Peanuts. or whatever you choose to roll up these days.Make sure you use as much slang as possible so that the journalist hasn't got a clue what you're talking about. This way when they try and transcribe they even A) Give up B) If readers try and cuss you at least you can point the finger at the writer and say 'Boiii it was all that pricks fault who don't know about road life and road words get me' .

Who are you and what do you do?
Man's been working mad hard in the studio ya nah. like every single second of the last hour I've been grafting. That's why i've released so many tunes ie: 3/4 full tracks cos mans been grafting out here for decades on this music ting. I just linked up with my boy smokey bars and laid down one hot f64. no lies cuz. It took me 4weeks to write them bars and all my fans are so proud of me. well my deaf aunty and my cousin paul who got 5stars last week on his spelling test. big up my elder right der. They been refreshing the youtube page for the last week now and it's hit over 5,000 plays so of course me ah gangstah out here ya hear. Platinum boom bam.

What have you got in the pipeline that we should look out for?
Of course badman's got a new tune out called My nan feeds,baths and fills my wallet for me with her pension that's the next single, kah even doe there hasn't even been a first single this one is going to be the start of my chart success. I've been doing grime for years but obviously man wants to get signed so man is going to jump on a funky/electro/sweetboy tune and soft out my lyrics a lickle it doesn't matter dat I have made a whole fanbase of music buyers and lovers who like what I do now but I want that paper. Then when I get dropped everyone better still like me otherwise I'm fucked. true kano stories. Rock'n'Roll more like go to your home sweet home and lock yourself in there. safe.

Rule 7: Even though you haven't released anything, well you did ask Logan, Spyro and Mista Jam on twitter for their email address and sent them that half arsed freestyle where your mum made a special feature shouting about how your din din's was ready but they never got back to you. You need to have your own T-Shirts saying a pathetic or random phrase that has something to do with one of your lyrics. For Idea's sake my biggest bar that get's reloaded on the biggest set of all time ie: in my bedroom on a tuesday night:

"I'm a badman but this ain't no flick ! i'll stab you in your eye with my blue ball point bic...Yeah I'm a bad chick, but I ain't Janine Butcher, Pauline or Ian Beale - but ill slap ur girlfriend up with my 2 hands, grant and phil..."

These are clearly chart material we're working with so I have to have my own fashion line and have every badman on road and on the scene wearing it.

BIC
Make sure you get the top guys repping your positive message.

Rule 8: Make a music video. If you haven't got the funds in your piggy try and hustle money out of everyone and anyone. Even established clothing lines who don't know who you're and boom bam ask them for £2000 on the spot. might as well ey. You're a super waste cadet. You can't drive, you can't afford a bus pass, you steal your nan's mobility scouter to pick up the daily mail for your racist next door neighbour for pocket money. You're 21+. Times are good for you. Make sure your acting skills are on. Swag is correct ie: uncle has got them knock off Gucci hats, bandanas and belts for you and your whole 'crew'. Boom. Get all the slags from your estate to pull away from their abortion schedules and drop by the shoot so it's not too much of a dick show.

Rule 9:
To make it big time. Get Donatella from Grimedaily to go down and dirty. She'll make you feel extra skype special. I mean you might not be the first or last but hey for that 10minute slot you would feel so damn good about yourself. Being a badman gangstah mc you must expect girls to fall to their knees and if they don't then they were butterz anyway. or you could just... no no mercston naughty naughty.

Rule 10: When your cousin Wiley/Skepta/Ghetto/Tinchy/Jammer go to radio make sure you hide inside the boot of their car and sneak in. Plug in an extra mic into the decks and boom you're making it big time LIVE ON RADIO. While you're spitting them lyrics you and your friends wrote together about how many skets you bang. Text your girlfriend of 5 years and tell her you love her.....

We also have a rasta he's priceless...

skepta

Skepta - Blow My Own Trumpet




So to keep track of the last week or so of music that's been flooding in and out of your ears, some you may of loved some you may of hated and even missed, I've done a di di di down low of everything that matters. Skepta's giving away apparently a free music E.P full of some of our favorite skepta freestyles and tracks. Surely that's what should of been on his album... Greatest Hits or Microphone Champion and not a load of crap snackle jibber jabber that he tried to get us to buy. Check him out supporting his younger Chippy... ie: the biggest reason to stay humble. Chipmunk grew up wanting to be Skepta and Scorcher - now Skeppy is supporting him. If I was being nice it's a good look blah blah. It's good exposure blah blah. But it's realistically kind of embaressing. Goin in is a a big track though, I do the Jammer 'jump out of bed' the rasta's ready every day at work. true stories. If that track doesn't sell more than 12 units on Itunes, I don't know what will, well definitely not any of Ny's singles. profit on her last single = £4. wow. Now that's goin' in...





11.35 starts after the waffle. we also have a rasta he's priceless. When was Gritz and Jammer in BBK? and Where is Frisco?

pat

Lauren Mason - The Boss Remix (THE QUBE)





The Pat Butcher of Grime, blondy but heard her natural hair color begins with G. On a deep and true level, this remix is sick. I'm not going to go any further rambling on. listen. learn. buy. If you haven't got it on your iphone your a swag profiterole and if you have a blackberry calm your maxwell d hype drinking self down. chill. Even if you hate Lauren Mason the Remix is a straight cop. real damn talk.



Nicki Minaj - Copycat (Saxon) - download




I'm slyly obsessed with this dubstep sexy bitch of a mix. I bet every designer hat was your size... especially with that beautiful everest of a forehead you have. I know it's a played out joke but I heard Rhianna is coming out with her own range of hats. Small, Medium, Large, XL Large, Rhi-Large, Everest-Large. The beginning is a sample of Rhianna and the rest is? Nicki? I'm confused. I just know this needs to be released before I jiz over your nan.

devs

Dev o Lin aka Devlin has been graftin in and out for a few years. He dropped his mixtape, but it lacked singles. So he dropped London City. I hate to say this because it's technically so cliche but he's kind of the new Mike Skinner. He talks politics, community issues and is just himself in a ukhiphop/grimey vibe. I'm kind of a big mouth that's why I will tell you apparently he's been signed to a big label. shh it wasn't me who told you. He deserves it. Big up to Dev's especially to see him and slow word Giggs on the BBC Sound of 2010, which is like the official ones to watch. I watched the RWD Magazine one to watch on Dev, the other day and he sounded so level headed . It made me kind of happy that someone so down to earth has got a good thing going. Allow the whole swagger, I got money when I blatantly live with my mum/dad, wearing a Gucci/YSL hat when I can't even afford a deposit on a car/house

R.I.P N.E / NU ERA

News has got around in the last couple of hours about N.E or Nu Era, most may know him from From Jenny with Essentials and Get Down with OG's, sadly he was found dead in his house earlier on today. Murder has been ruled out and some suggest that a possible long going medical issue is most likely the reason for his sudden passing. I wasn't his biggest fan musically but from meeting him a few times he seemed over down to earth, passionate about doing music and genuinely up for a laugh. My thoughts go out to the rest of the OG's and obviously his family. I'll leave you with this Essentials crew set, which was easily my favorite set from the Dark & Cold Industry Takeover DVD.
