When I worked at 1Xtra I looked after this guy at 1Xtra Live. I didnt rate him at all before then, but seeing the reaction he got from the audience and the respect he got from his peers, you have to give props where its due.

Taio topped the national charts with this song in September of 2009 and now he’s got the US co sign from Ludacris. Say no more.


I’ve been listening to Ryan Leslie’s album alot recently, the 2nd song on Transition called Something Like I Like and Pusha T does a sick verse on it. Anyway I stumbled across this just now and it fails for 2 reasons.

Firstly the person that titled the video on Worldstarhiphop called spell NECKLACE, they call it ‘neckless’, shame. And secondly, Ryan gets jacked!



Wow!! UK soulster has gone straight in for the jugular with this.
Singing a freestyle over Dr Dre’s ‘The Watcher’ Mclean actually attacks gangsters, wanksters & 99.9% of the industry for being fakers and not having what it take to be a respected artist.
He obviously has a grudge to bear and hopefully when he comes on my 1xtra R&B show he can explain exactly who has rattled his cage. Watch this space!
Check the joint here…

Its been confirmed that after much media speculation, Cheryl Cole will split from her husband Ashley.

This comes after the recent claims of Ashley exchanging picture messages, LUDE texts and what nots with a few girls. And exchanging a bit more than that apparently too.. BOY.

If you ask me, ABOUT TIME. He’s made her look like a right FOOL, after her whole album is about fighting for love, not needing a parachute and reh reh.

Good for u Cheryl.. just dont lose any more weight yea?

PS. Ronnie says if he was young, free and single he would be there for you.. but unfortunately he’s not. But i’m sure you’ll manage.


I’m a huge Raheem Devaughn fan, and it’s a great look for the soulful side of R&B that he is back! To kick the project off in the UK , here is the first single , the Kenny Dope produced slice of top notch Marvin esque Urban bliss “BULLETPROOF” , feat Ludacris. Already a Top Ten Urban record in the U.S. , this sets up what is being viewed as his finest album in the trio “The Love And War Masterpeace” – scheduled in the UK for March 1st.The FIRST UK single will be the NeYo written “I Don’t Care” – promo’d soon.
Enjoy this! RH


Bradley and Stacey were on the run, Ronnie confessed that Archie raped her, Max threw up with the aid of his fingers and we found out in a very dramatic, LIVE ending, to one of the best storylines EVERER whodunnit.

Apart from a few fluffed up lines, 21 gun salute to the cast and crew of Eastenders.

Here’s the final few minutes incase you missed it.
