CoCo, stylist on Redchurch St...

DSC_0023

Last Friday as CoCo posed I asked if she had heard (and assuming she would have had and also liked) "Otis" but she said "eer".  I was a bit disappointed with her answer as I love it and recommend the Deluxe Edition of  Watch The Throne


But If your not a hip-hop fan the tracks below are more pop... or just check out the video

I had always planned on writing a review when Otis first dropped, however I  held off waiting for the full album but can't be objective...

I looked around last week and was genuinely surprised that one reviewer found the message of the video "distasteful" at that time of civil unrest...

The message some heard was after The Lords and MP expenses scandal, after a former senior member of The UK Prime Minister's team was found to be implicated in a police corruption scandal, who's tentacles seem to be reaching deep into the ruling and upper classes, as David Cameron admits defeat over Bankers' bonuses (I wish I could join their discreet clubs and fraternities), it was all bound to happen... There is a thesis that we have are all becoming too cynical seeing how those who rule over us never seem to have to bother to play by the rules...

So why should the mass bother with the rules? And what about the most depressed by the way society is going and only want in some way to express this by taking consumer goods in an desire to catch up? Even if most of their rap is imagined, some look to Jay-z for inspiration...

The problem for the British working classes and the new emerging underclass, getting their high is usually illegal and attracts draconian sentencing…

I bet the MP's crowd all danced and laughed along at the Bullingdon Club to London’s Burning by The Clash, back in the day... Karma's a bitch Mr.Cameron...

The best review I’ve seen is by Jacqueline Springer, academic of black music, which can be heard here for a few more days... Please scrub 5 min's into the program to hear her >>>
