Introducing.... Nate Walka

On Tuesday evening, Mayfair's Molton House provided the backdrop to mark the introduction of grammy award winning artist, Nate Walka.



Now to some, the name might not be familiar, but if we mentioned Jamie Foxx' 'Blame It' or perhaps Trey Songz 'Say Ahh' it might come as a surprise to know that Nate was the one responsible for writing those tracks.

The new age artists of today are about getting theirs, and that's quintessentially what Nate Walka is all about, citing, 'Who makes the rules, we do'.

Playing a selection of material off his impending album, 'One Helluva Night' which is slated for an early 2011 release, guests were treated to Nate's charismatic sound which in his words cannot be 'boxed'.

A rapper at heart but signed to an Indy label under his own imprint, Versatile Music, Nate's delivery is thorough, clear and poignant, gliding over beats with clarity, as expected from an award winning songwriter.

Most memorable were the tracks 'Sky Walk Kid' which has the production you would expect from the hardest of T.I. tracks but is evenly balanced with Nate on the hook, whispering "I'm a Skywalk kid/ I dont wanna grow up / I do what I want, anyway that I want to".

NEWS: T.I. Changes The Name Of His Forthcoming Album



T.I. has decided to change the name of his upcoming album from 'King Uncaged' to 'No Mercy'.

The album which was meant to be released sometime in August, was pushed back so T.I. could promote the film 'Takers' which he stars in.

TV: Plans For TV Series Of 'Goodfellas'


All fans of 'Goodfellas' the film or fans of the Gangster film genre - get ready!

Nicholas Pileggi, author of 'Wiseguys' - the book that 'Goodfellas' is based on, has announced that himself, Martin Scorsese and Warner Bros are in talks about creating a new TV series prequel based on the life of mobster Henry Hill.


Pileggi tells Culture Magazine, "We're trying (to develop the TV series). I want to do it, Marty wants to do it, Warner Bros wants to do it. Of course, you can't pick up from 'Goodfellas', since we murdered everybody, or rather, everybody was murdered! There's nobody left. But I think we're going to figure out a way to do the early years - sort of a prequel. The part of the movie people often like best is the opening third, where all the funny stuff is happening, and there's so much we could fit in."

So Goodfellas could be coming to your TV screen soon!

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: Nicki Minaj x Will.i.am - 'Check It Out'

What has Cher gotten herself into now!

The X Factor contestant has previously stated before some of her performances that she wrote her own lyrics - not that many people believed her.....

Well it has come to light that Cher has told a lie or two as none of the raps that Cher has performed have been her ow, which the video above illustrates.

It seems Cher is trying a bit too hard to keep up the edgy 'street' persona that she brought to her first X Factor audition.

I think it's about time Cher actually sings a whole song on the X Factor without rapping.

Firstly, who even knew that Diddy was really Nicki's manager? I just thought they were affiliated and Diddy was giving a bit of guidance

Well apparently Diddy was Nicki's manager, but not anymore according to a press release that was distributed today.

Nicki's statement from said press release reads:

By now, everyone should now that I am really strict when it comes to my representation. I had sympathy for Sean however I feel as if I haven’t gotten the guidance the manager is supposed to give his client. Personally, I feel like I’m being managed by mother. Even if you play the smallest role on my team, I wish to see progress. I’d like to thank him for everything he has done for me; for taking me under his wing. I wish him the best with repping Rick [Ross]. But now that my album is about to drop, its time to get serious and stop playing games. If I could turn back time…I wouldn’t have made the decision to let Troy go.” 

The press release also goes on to say that Benny Medina, famous for managing Mariah Carey and Gwen Stefani, is now Nicki's manager. Nicki took to Twitter today to state that she doesn't even know Medina - she didn't however claim that her management deal with Diddy was over.

Let's see if Diddy has anything to say about this.......

ALBUM REVIEW: Faith Evans- 'Something About Faith'


Faith Evans has returned with an album that has everything we expect from her on it, soulful vocals, good production and a few guest appearances.

After a long hiatus (her last album was 'First Lady', 2005), and a few personal problems, Faith has put out a good album, not one that will race up the charts, but still a good effort that will please her fans and those who appreciate good music.

Stand out tracks, 'Way I Move Ft. Snoop', 'Party Ft. Redman', the Notorious B.I.G. Sampled 'Everyday Struggle Ft. Raekwon' and 'Real Things'.

The only thing missing are P Diddy's ad libs and the token 112 duet. Would I say get this album...? Yes, but no need to rush out and do it.

It's nice to hear Faith still has her gift. Hopefully she builds off of this now as she can still be relevant in today's music world. I give this album 3 out of 5.

NEWS: Nicki Minaj Is Credited On Seven Of The 200 Best-Selling Songs In 2010


Nicki Minaj's basket seems to be over flowing this year and her stream of fortune doesn't appear to be drying up any time soon. The worlds "super freak" Barbie, has been credited seven times on Nielson/ Sound Scan's running tally of the 200 best selling songs so far in 2010. Not bad for a female rapper who hasn't even dropped her album yet. Nicki has featured on some of this year's most popular tracks such as 'My Chick Bad' with Ludacris, 'Bottoms Up' along side Trey Songz and Lil wayne's 'Knock Out', to name a few.

Whether or not Nicki Minaj is the best female rapper to emerge this side of the 21st century is still questionable, however, fair play and congrats to her!

VIDEO: X-Factor's Anastasia Baker Speaks Out About Cheryl Cole, Cher Lloyd & Katie Waissel



"She's trying to copy Cheryl but in her own cheap way!" - Anastasia Baker on Cher Lloyd

It seems that Gamu's axing from X-Factor, and Cheryl picking Cher and Katie as two of her top three acts has angered many, including now ex-contestants of the X-Factor.

After being so close to being picked for X-Factor's final three by Cheryl (again), ex-X Factor hopeful Anastasia Baker has spoken out to The Sun about her true feelings about the show, Cheryl Cole, Katie Waisell and Cher Lloyd.

Anastasia does tell the truth, but should she have been so quick to vent her feelings on the matter? I mean this could play a part in her downfall in trying to become a signed artist.

Thanks TGJ

TV: X-Factor's Gamu Nhengu Faces Deportation!


So after the public uproar that has surrounded ex-X Factor contestant Gamu Nhengu, who Cheryl Cole didn't select to be in her top three, it seems that Gamu along with her family, will now be deported from the UK.

Gamu's mother, Nokuthula Ngazana, had been refused permission to stay in the UK after her visa expired in August, which immigration officials have confirmed. Gamu has lived in Scotland with her family for the past eight years.

A statement from the UK Border Agency said: 

"The applications made by Ms Ngazana and her family were considered in line with the published immigration rules. Ms Ngazana's application was refused as it did not meet all of the conditions for approval.

Her family, who had applied as her dependants, were therefore also refused."
