Chipmunk - Champion (Feat. Chris Brown)

Alicia Keys Featuring Eve - Speechless

The latest offering from Swizz Beatz Monster Monday comes in the form of Speechless, the samples that feature on Kanye West's Devil in a blue dress produced by Swizz have been reworked and Alicia Keys  masterfully creates a completely original song that is soulful despite the fact that the beat is one produced fro a rapper. This refreshing exclusive featuring Eve does not yet appear on either artists album,  this exciting release suggests there is more material to come for 2011 from both artists as they are already in the studio. A free download of this track is available from http://www.monstermondays.com/

Boots

Out with the old in with the new, there is nothing wrong with wearing Timberland boots, in order to move to a higher plateaux as you start to earn more money you aught to be able to invest in a pair of suade boots, the ambitious post graduate gentleman knows that suade boots can look either distinguished or laid back, depending on how you wear them. Pair them with jeans and a cardigan on the weekend, or a grey suit/straight fit trousers and a jumper during the working week. The possibilities are endless.

Bags

Your choice of bag can make or break your look. When wearing a suit you shouldn’t carry a shoulder bag from another genre e.g. sports, or casual as your outfit falls into the smart category by default. Ideally you want to opt for a sleek classic and timeless briefcase.

Socks

If running low on socks, buy a batch of identical socks e.g. black/navy dress socks, Invisible trainer socks, tube socks etc as required. These can be bought online, or during a lunch break, on the way home from work there are no excuses for poor quality socks with holes in them.

Snakes


Did you know that a severed snake head can still attack and emit venom up to an hour after being beheaded?

Why Not Watch A Football Match?


Football fans would be happy to know that when in Ghana champion’s league fixtures are shown without fail at certain night spots on Wednesday. Why not go and watch a football match at the stadium. Outside of Accra prices are a little cheaper. Interestingly in Ghana’s second city it costs C2 to see a match at the stadium and C7 for premiership fixtures.

Bantuma High street.

A busseling street lined with various night spots, serving a variety of bottled continental, local and non alcoholic beverages. It is a lively place to relax and nightlife can be lively however bare in mind that in Ghana going out on the town is reserved for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights as these seem to be when all the actual hotels and clubs are open for business. Exceptions to the rule include match days when in Kumasi Wednesday and Sunday. 

Ghana–Taxis Part 2


There are two mains types of taxis in Ghana, Dropping taxis and shared taxis, The dropping system works in the same way that a taxi cab operates. There are also shared taxis that have travel along a planed route and have a fixed price per person who wishes embarks on the journey to the agreed location, these shared taxis work exactly the same as a tro tro does. The main difference is that Ghanaian taxis are not metered therefore take note of how much you pay for journeys as prices inflate during rush hour and you will need to negotiate a fair price. Taxis account for 80% of road vehicles on the road and are relatively in expensive compared to western standards.

Ghana–Taxis

Brightly coloured taxi cabs , typically battered old Peugeots with orange wing panels, a fire extinguisher in the dash board, a brightly coloured air freshener with the united states flag juxtaposed onto it habging from the wing mirror, seats that come in a variety of materials, including leather, foam, material. And there is often a random surprise in the boot, spare tyre, boiler or a huge hole.

I Like It A Lot - Guide To Ghana


Accra is relatively crime free however never assume that crime doesn’t exist everywhere, statistics would suggest that violent crimes against tourists remain low in comparison to Nairobi, Lagos, or Johannesburg. That being said bag snatching, also hold up’s at gun point and knife point are most likely to happen after dark off popular beach resorts such as Oxford Street and around Osu etc. It pays to be streetwise, follow rules of urban survival as you would in any urban city . in general I have not witnessed anything that would lead me to believe that Accra in general is a cause for concern, as it seems as safe and hassle free as any other African city once you get used to the street urchins and hawkers.

I Like It A Lot - Guide To Ghana


Accra mall is located near Sprintex road by Tetteh Quarshie Circle, home to the usual fried fast food joints, the mall is also home to Rhapsody a trendy new South African restaurant specialising in meat and game, excellent cocktails and tasty food, the ice cream still had icicles in it and cost C7 I regretted order it and would prefer to have had a fan ice instead. The portions were meagre and the steak that came with what looked like the best combination on the menu * Laurel and Hardy* C35.00 was tiny. And the portion of chips came on a side plate that looked as if were kids sized, the entire meal left me pissed off thinking I could make better at home. The highlight of the evening without a doubt were the cocktails, most notably the Taxi Cab, Rhapsody transform’s into a club with live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday therefore the venue is over 23’s only after 6pm.

Rihanna – ‘What’s My Name (Remix) (Ft. Drake)’

 The video for Rihanna's second single 'What's My Name.' has already been filmed, this offering lifted from Rihanna hotly anticipated loud project is a pleasant surprise to many critics. She really brings a dancehall couture vibe to this track and Drake on the remix takes the song to another level.

Hurts - Wonderful Life


Fantastic song and great video. The debut album Happiness out now.

John Legend & The Roots - Hard Times/I Can't Write Left Handed (Jimmy Fallon Live)






John Legend & The Roots return with a new project  cover album "Wake Up," John Legend comes to London in November. Tour dates and locations to be confirmed. 

Shakira - Loca (Feat. Dizzee Rascal)

The first single to be released from the 'Sale De Sol' album.

Rihanna Who's That Chick


If this is any indication of the direction of the new Rihanna material this could possibly be a project reminiscent of Good Girl Gone Bad, but bare in mind we have already had that. Reports online seem to suggest that the video was a promotional only track for one of Rihanna's many corporate sponsors allegedly Doritos Where are the Crisps?.  The major laser sounding track was actually produced by David Guetta and may feature on Rihanna's fifth studio album titled 'Loud.' scheduled for released 15th November 2010.

PlayStation® Game Runners - Next Level Street Gaming





PlayStation Game Runners is an experimental project where PlayStation, members of the public and young people from diverse backgrounds have come together to create social games; PlayStation believe the best games are played as a group.

About BLOCKS:
BLOCKS is a three-dimensional game of strategy and precision movement.
Two opposing players take it in turns to place the blocks in a 2 x 2 tower. Every face of the block has a PlayStation symbol on it. When a player places a block the symbols on all touching faces
must match.



Here’s the tricky bit: all the blocks are a little bit uneven, and so stacking a high tower gets harder and harder. The player who lets the tower topple, or who runs out of time to make a move, loses the game. You’ll need a logical mind and a steady hand to triumph!





Now that BLOCKS has been announced as the winning game it will be put forward into development and the public will have the chance to check out the game on Friday October 8th in London during an open day where anyone can drop in and try BLOCKS followed by a competition in the evening.


The venue has yet to be confirmed, so keep your eyes on ilikeitalot.blogspot.com for further info as we will be the first to know.

Introducing Katy B (Many of you already are down)

Katie Brien, better known as Katy B hails from South London, an edgy, street sound that is rich and unusual in a climate populated by safe artists or artists who copy other artist (Beyonce/Rihanna world) There is no other female on the UK Music scene bringing a freshness that could be compared to what sugababes(original line up/Lilly Allen/ Rihanna) have come to represent in 2010. Most similar to Rita Ora but with more material released in the UK. Katie has originality, streetwise cool, with the ability to write and arrange her own music. Being a Singer and a graduate having completed a degree in Popular Music at Goldsmiths, University of London this year she seems to be able to express herself lyrically at a standard that is up there with Ms/ Lady Dynamite. I like it alot and am lookiung forward to the album, however there is no official website or scheduled release dates from Katy. The first time I heard Katy b was out at Yoyo, when DJ Seb? Leo? Mane Norte? played one of my favourite tracks on a mission.

Another amazing year of carnival celebrations, special thanks to Aymen TV for forwarding me the footage.

Twister Documentary to coincide with the release of new material.

Chicago rapper Twista will be the subject of a new documentary produced by the Vladar Co., slated for October release in conjunction with the musician's new album. Some have already questioned if there is space in the industry for Twister to make a comeback however, it is evident that he is versatile enough to be successful and survive in the current climate with other mc’s, Twista has always been innovative, previous stand out examples are Slow Jams ft Kanye West. They say that you are only as good as your last performance, kamikaze was a respectable body of work released 7 years ago.

Who's Song is it anyway?

Raheem Devaughn might not care, as the title of the lead single from his latests album titled "love war masterpiece" may suggest. The track penned by Neo is being performed by UK Group FDM who were said to be in the process of being signed by the r'n'b singer by a source who cannot be named in early August. Both Artists are using the exact same track as a buzz record on various different occasions. Raheem's video has already been shot. Fundametal *03 FDM are currently promoting new material in the UK. How and why this is the case is unclear? Who sang it better? you decide.

Joint statement from RIM Co-CEOs in response to comments by Apple

Hot topic Apple's iphone 4 has been blasted by other smart phone manufacturers who have been releasing statements slamming Apple. RIM's Co-CEO's responded to misleading statements from Apple in a press release:


Apple’s attempt to draw RIM into Apple’s self-made debacle is unacceptable. Apple’s claims about RIM products appear to be deliberate attempts to distort the public’s understanding of an antenna design issue and to deflect attention from Apple’s difficult situation. RIM is a global leader in antenna design and has been successfully designing industry-leading wireless data products with efficient and effective radio performance for over 20 years. During that time, RIM has avoided designs like the one Apple used in the iPhone 4 and instead has used innovative designs which reduce the risk for dropped calls, especially in areas of lower coverage.
One thing is for certain, RIM’s customers don’t need to use a case for their BlackBerry® smartphone to maintain proper connectivity. Apple clearly made certain design decisions and it should take responsibility for these decisions rather than trying to draw RIM and others into a situation that relates specifically to Apple.

The white iphone4 has now been pushed back to December 2010, just in time for a White Christmas.

M.I.A Throwing Shade at Oprah And Gaga?


M.I.A sounded more than a little salty according to a pull quote cited over at Love B Scott; 

‘…Oprah seemed like she was giving me the cold shoulder. She was with Iman(Bowie). Iman was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me, but Oprah seemed really pissed off with me. Also she made this huge speech at the ball praising Lady Gaga and about how she (Lady Gaga) is helping Americans to be the best of themselves. There’s millions of other Americans who represent that for me. Is (it) about numbers? About how much you’re selling? Is it truly about the journey? Because (Lady Gaga’s) journey isn’t that difficult: to go from the fucking Upper East Side to a fucking performing arts school and on to a stage at the museum of fucking wherever. That journey’s about four miles.’ 

I believe that this quote is not genuine, it has been linked to no source but has been popping up all over the internet.
