Oh my goshhhhhh! D Double E, Dizzee Rascal and Footsie all flooded out Twitter timelines with #BLUKUBLUKU for the last 24 hours in anticipation for the premiere of the lead track from D Double’s new EP also named ‘Bluku Bluku’.

As advised in the 1,000,000 tweets, we locked into Westwood on Radio 1 at 9pm and boy were we in for a treat! The track dropped, and on it, was a verse from none other than Dizzee Diz! It came as a complete surprise and it was so refreshing to hear Dizzee on a grime beat again.

Shout to S-X on productions, who is slowly establishing himself as the best producer on the scene right now.

Listen to D Double E and Dizzee shout “Bluku Bluku!” below, and head over to iTunes to download it NOW!

[NEWS] MTV announce controversial list of Top 10 ‘Best Of The Best’ British MC’s of 2010 by wearesme

MTV tonight announced the Top 10 UK MC’s of 2010 and it certainly wasn’t short of controversy.

The panel, which included: Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson (MTV), Logan Sama (Kiss 100), Ras Kwame (Broadcaster), Charlie Sloth (BBC 1Xtra/Radio 1) Chantelle Fiddy (RWD & Mixmag), Hattie Collins (RWD), Elijah (Butterz), Stanza (True Tiger), Ara (The Jump Off) and Donatella (Flava) all discussed and voted for their favourites. However, news has leaked that the list was altered at the last minute owing to pressure from industry representatives for leaving out certain individuals; namely Chipmunk and Dizzee Rascal.

The altered list did not affect the number 1 spot, with Tinie Tempah rightfully reigning supreme after an incredible 2010, but the whole premise of the list appears to be unclear.

Does chart success determine the position? What is the definition of an MC? Is Dizzee still classified as one? And obviously, why was the list altered?
If chart position is the main factor that determines the list, it begs the question; why was Wretch 32 removed following the success of ‘Traktor’ in the UK chart?

The inclusions of Maxta on the original list and Lowekey on the revised, is a bizarre choice on both counts; neither have had any success in the charts and if you ask any grime fan they will no doubt bombard you with names of MC’s who are deemed better than the aforementioned.

The first of which would be JME, who unexplainably is nowhere to be seen. And this after having released what SME believe is the best grime album of 2010; BLAM! Any ideas? No neither do we.

None the less; MTV should be given credit for commissioning the show and as a result giving the UK Grime scene the exposure it deserves.
You could argue that it’s irrelevant who made the list as the show has sparked discussions around the country; especially on Twitter where opinions have been rife since the announcement. Artists on the list will be recognised for being there and those who didn’t make it will be the names on everyone’s lips for weeks to come.

Check out the lists below:

Orginal list
1. Tinie Tempah
2. Skepta
3. P Money
4. Wiley
5. D Double E
6. Devlin
7. Wretch 32
8. Professor Green
9. Giggs

Revised List
1 Tinie Tempah
2 Dizzee Rascal (added)
3 Skepta
4 Pro Green
5 Wiley
6 Giggs
7 Devlin
8 P Money
9 D Double E
10 Chipmunk and Lowkey (added)

SB.TV premiered the video for B Live’s (above with Mistajam) track Modern Warfare 2 last night.

Not only is it a big tune but it has to be said that this is the best production I’ve seen on a Grime ‘hood’ video. Listen out for Skepta’s verse, he can’t put a foot wrong right now.
