Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Weak...Jocking Jay-Z?!

I heard this weak sample of Reverend Run (of Run DMC fame) screaming "jocking Jay-Z" on the new tune from the recently 'out-of-retirement' rapper Jay-Z.

If this is the rebuttal tune for getting dissed by Noel Gallaghar at Glastonbury this year, then it's weak...sorry hip hop heads! The electro beats are weak, the "jocking Jay-Z" hook is weak and even lyrics like, "That bloke from Oasis said I couldn't play guitar/ Someone shoulda told him I'm a muthaf**ker rap star/ Today is gonna be the day that I'm gonna throw it back to you/ I'm living life as a rocker . . ." won't save this tune. I don't care that Kanye produced it...Weak.
