Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot

Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton has spent a long, long time on this album and luckily for him it appears to have been worth it. Recording began in 2004, its release was announced in 2007, and some label infighting was followed be a series of track leeks – some by the artist himself, but finally the…

Kelis - Flesh Tone

Kelis Rogers is no longer relying on her milkshake to bring all the boys to the yard, instead the talented vocalist has teamed up with David Guetta and a number of other dance music glitterati to create a pulsating dance album which is fast becoming one of my favourite albums of the year so far….

The twenty-one year old is supported on this album by rap heavyweights Eminem, Lupe Fiasco and T.I., which will no doubt increase sales, but also highlight the recognised talents of…
