Its damn quiet here in the office today, so for once I thought I’d take some time out to pop a little summin’ summin’ up on here for a change. I threw up the Scarface video earlier today – if you’re hating on that track, you’re obviously a joker, so jog on. Not much has been moving on the hip-hop front down here in the South Easy. No big shows of any size, and nothing seems to be on the radar either. This time of year is always a quiet one as the students start drifting back to their famalams, and the cold weather seems to stop people wanting to travel further than is strictly necessary in search of a good night out.
If you haven’t heard it yet, go check out the new Wu Tang long player – 8 Diagrams. Aside from a few minor irritations (I’m not a big fan of some of the singing up on there) its definitely a return to form for the crew from the 1-6-Oooooh. There are some on fire verses from Meth and Ghost – fuck it, all of the Clan bring the heat during the course of the LP, obviously dedicated to the man ODB (Rest in peace Ol’ Dirty!). So go find yourself a copy and get into that kung-fu frame of mind. Wu-Tang Clan still ain’t nuttin’ to fuck wit’.
Anyway, its time for the random Fantana Reports Top 10. On fire my good man.

And a big special shout to my man 184 who has put the finishing touches on his remix of my track Ill Padrino, as well as G-Petz laid down some ill chops in the hook. I’ll link it up on my myspace as soon as I get a second.
