Episode 2 of our weekly #ShishaWednesday’s video debates the issue of subliminal shots in Hip Hop music. Many state that if the name isn’t thrown then the shot doesn’t count, Many state it’s a bitch move to drop a subliminal shot to another artist and many believe it’s an artistic way to generate rivalry in music using dope word play against the competition or enemy for that matter. What do you think? was Common right to come at Drake side ways with his subliminal diss on ‘Sweet’? Was Jay-Z right to drop a ‘Lucky Lefty’ line at Baby? Watch the debate and have your say in the comments or via Youtube and don’t forget to Like the video too.
Around 3 years ago I started ‘Shisha Wednesday’s’ with a few of my team, each week it became bigger and bigger with more people wanting to be at the event where we chill, play cards, smoke Shisha and generally talk about every and anything mostly about music. So a few weeks ago I thought, why not bring ‘Shisha Wednesday’s’ to Say-Somethin.Com and debate current issues within music, which brings us all the way here whereby we did just that. Starting off the season with Episode 1 Say Somethin’ discussed the controversial list devised by MTV naming the hottest MC’s in the game for 2011. In this video we go from 10-1 and debate whether we think the list was fair, who should have moved spots, who should have been taken off completely and who should have been placed on the list who MTV missed off all together. So the moment you been waiting for Comment, Thumbs Up and Subscribe to the videos as each Wednesday I’m dropping a brand new debate and you don’t want to miss out!!!…….
Rihanna stopped by The Johnathan Ross show over the weekend while here in London. The Singer has been here for the past few weeks where she celebrated her birthday with a ‘Cake’ Remix with Ex Boyfriend Chris Brown and also found time to promote her projects. Check out the interview below where she also performs new single ‘Talk That Talk’ Featuring Jay-Z.
London is most definitely taking over with British born Rita Ora teaming up with fellow Brit Tinie Tempah. Rita who is signed to Jay-Zs Roc Nation interestingly borrows the pen from Drake Drizzy with his track ‘Im Ready For Ya’. I’ve actually been playing Drake‘s version for a couple of years now so it’s gonna take time to listen to a female sing the same verses but never the less she did her thing with this track. Take a listen below and if you have never heard Drake‘s version listen below also.
