I'm off for two weeks, taking a much needed break in a far sunnier destination... Egypt I'm coming back for you!
In my absence I highly recommend checking out Four Lions, the new film from Chris Morris starring my good friend Riz Ahmed who surpassed even my expectation. Definitely one of the British films of the year.
I also got to hear Giggs' debut album on XL Recordings yesterday. Out of the 12 tracks we heard 'Hustle On' was my fave along with next single 'What The Cat Dragged In'... The album's dropping June 21st so get your pre-orders in as and when you can. Definitely think it will be looked back on as a definitive hip-hop album, one that clearly firms Giggs as the closest thing to NWA the British have had.
In magazine news, look out for the next issue of Dazed&Confused which features pieces I've done on the boy wonder SB.TV, Lady Chann (who's riding high in Japan at the moment) and Devlin (one of Island's latest signings).
Gotta give a shout out to my Roll Deep peeps too for their number 1 with 'Good Times'... Looking like it might hold the top spot for a second week. If you haven't yet seen it here's there SB.TV special.
Also make sure you check out the new Dizzee Rascal & Chase & Status tune 'Heavy', it's one of the best things he's done EVER. Flow and beat are both ridiculous.
Last but not least play the next track LOUD.
