I've been gone for a minute...

Mistajam | 20:42 UK time, Wednesday, 9 May 2007 I'm back with the jump off!

Been very busy organising things for the next UK Takeover event which is taking place on Bank Holiday Monday 28th May at Nottingham Trent University SU in Nottingham. If you've never heard of UK Takeover before, it's basically British HipHop's version of this:

Instead of 50, Jigga, Jeezy, Diddy, Nelly and Jermaine Dupri though, we've got Lethal Bizzle, Klashnekoff, Sway, Wiley, Taskforce, Kyza, L.Man, Chain Of Command, Stig Of The Dump & Dr Syntax and many more performing on one stage - check here for more info. More details and a competition coming soon - you know I got ya!

Someone else who's been quite busy is Busta Rhymes - busy getting arrested again that is. Over the last 10 months, he's been arrested four times (that even beats Snoop Dogg) most recently for drunk driving.

According to Reuters "In exchange for pleading guilty, Rhymes would have served one year for the assault charges, been fined $1,500 and forced to participate in an anti-drunken driving program, said Edison Alban, a spokesman for the DA's office" but he's rejected that deal and instead is due in court on July 10th - personally even though I'm a Busta fan, if he's done the crime, he needs to do the time. Someone with his wealth and success has no business breaking laws. What do you think? Is he being targeted by police as his lawyer claimed or is it just his stupid fault for breaking laws in the first place?

    Busta is embarassing.
    Most people have attitude problems, act hard and exhibit very little inteligence when they're teenagers, then mature through their 20s and thirties.

    Busta has done the exact opposite. In the public eye.

    He got his name from Chuck D right? I bet Chuck would give him a different name now.

    I kind of feel the same about Xzibit. Why's he acting all hard in his thirties when he was all about rhymes and life in his twenties? Rappers: It is okay to get older gracefully.
