All day Monday (29th March) BBC Radio 1xtra paid homage to the Queen of Hip Hop soul who has just released her 9th studio album ‘Stronger With Each Tear’ accompanied by a new single ‘I am’.
MJB is 20 years deep in the gameand there were tributes throughout the day including yours truly delving into those retrospective, definitive and pivotal moments in an incredible career.
Peep the video interview!

A few people have mentioned this interview to me – Jill speaks about being a black woman, how she feels about interracial dating, being called a racist and addresses other subjects close to her heart.

Freedom of speech right?

The Queen of Neo Soul dropped the classic ‘Baduism’ back in 97′ and since that, the soul masses have always demanded more. Well she’s delivered in the form of her 5th studio album ‘New Amerykah pt 2’ subtitled (Return Of The Ankh)
Mad heavy!

I’ve heard this story for a few months now after being reported on several blogs, but its been confirmed by TMZ that Mathew’s 18 month affair with former worker Alexandria Wright has resulted in a baby boy called Nixon.

The recent DNA test came back positive and they are closing to reaching an agreement for childs support.

No wonder Tina filed for divorce..

You see a similarity?

If you love your UK soul straight up organic, you really need to check this lil’ lady out.
Louise Golbey came to my attention thru Mr 100% Homegrown Ras Kwame and after playing her debut tune ‘Same Ol Same Ol’ and seeing her performance on the BBC Introducing stage @ Glastonbury, i was well n truly sold.
Louise has an E.P called ‘How It Is’ available to download now and you can also check www.louisegolbey.com for any additional info.
You know i wouldn’t misguide you when it comes to giving you the heads up on natural talent but if you want to see for yourself (and it is strongly advised that you do) peep this interview where L.G performs 3 tracks acoustically and flawlessly on my BBC Radio 1xtra R&B show.
Enjoy!
