Myself & Bobby have known Tight Face for close to 13 or 14 years. We grew up in the same place and kicked it with the same peeps etc etc... We’re buzzin to offer you his new mixtape... Turning out killer beat-tape after killer beat-tape, the South Londoner is a long-time ally of Paul White and the OHM crew (not least Mo Kolours, his brother).
Treasures Of The Five Boroughs is TightFace’s tribute to New York rap, matching his electric funk and soulful strut to vocals from the likes of Ghostface, Nas, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, Biggie, and many more. It’s also the perfect showcase for one of the most promising beatmakers around. I repeat - 'one of the most promising beatmakers around'
This has been floating around for a month or so now, but I still deem this blog worthy.
Mister Cee bet Angie Martinez $300 that her & her Hot 97 show team (DJ Enuff & Drewski) couldn't rap along to Chris Brown / Busta Rhymes / Lil Wayne's "Look At Me Now".
Angie Ma goes IN. Sorts out her takeaway, counts paper & becomes Busta, all at the same time.
I've watched this clip alot, gives me joke every time..

Jonathan Darby 'FAVELA' Teaser from Jonathan Darby on Vimeo.
Jonathan's second solo show ‘FAVELA’ at Signal will take him deeper into the areas of concern he has touched on so successfully before. Concentrating on the favelas (slums) in the big cities of Brazil, Jonathan became acutely aware of the overwhelming social problems facing these communities. The favelas have been abandoned by national and local government and have been taken over by drug traffickers and their gangs. A culture of lawlessness and violence exists unchecked, creating a level of poverty that gives Brazil the dubious accolade of nurturing the biggest gap between rich and poor in the world.
Jonathan’s work for the show is moving away from the more obvious use of logos. Instead, he will be using a range of more subtle artistic means to achieve his goals. His aim in the show will be to create a unique experience combining paintings with atmospheric installations. This will be Jonathan’s most ambitious body of work to date, exploring an important issue using a wide range of materials and techniques. The show should establish him as one of the most important young artists on the scene.
