Word to your grandmother people, it’s a distinctly urban post this week. So put yo’ hands in the air like yo’ really don’t mind and check out what we have in store for you this week.
First off, we have a WORLD EXCLUSIVE VIDEO for the new Virus Syndicate video “Money” which takes a Pink Floyd sample to a place you would never think it could go. For those who don’t know, they are a four piece dubstep and grime collective hailing from Manchester, UK who began their careers on the airwaves pirate radio station Rinse FM and have supported Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, De La Soul, Cypress Hill and Dizzee Rascal. If you like the video the single, ”Money” is available worldwide on 6th June 2012. Head over to the Maximum Bass Zone to watch.
Secondly our Artist Of The Week is…. The one and only Nicki Minaj, with her so-bad-it’s-good British accent and her trend defying fashion. She has yet another new video called ‘Star Ships’ and it really is rather good (I knew I couldn’t keep my urban talk going for too long!)
