Jay and Kanye REALLY did it with this one. Despite the constant encores and replays of the song, it never gets old! Even though the Watch The Throne album was released some time ago, since the video was released earlier this year, the song has sky rocketted to the biggest track of the year, possibly, all time?! This track has me going for days, and that Yeezy dance… too rich!

Now, RUNTC readers, although I have been gone for a while, I have done some pretty cool things meanwhile and the Radio 1 Hackney Weekend was definitely one of them!

I was lucky enough to receive an exclusive pass to the big festival and I had an absolute blast! Not only was there food, celebrities and fun, but there were all my favourite artists in one place! The event was so massive that there was more than one stage. Amongst the thousands of people that attended, there was a dance section, multiple DJ stands, a Radio 1 EXTRA stage AND finally, the biggen- the main stage- which was absolutely MASSIVE.

Not only did I have the pleasure of witnessing the greatness that is Example, Trey Songz and Will.I.Am; I was fortunate enough to discover the great performance that was Nicki Minaj.

Minus her diva exit. Her performance was perfectly balanced with her infamous pop ballads and her skilled rhymes. Unfortunately, due to sound errors, I was screaming the words louder than Nicki herself, never the less, it was a good performance. Especially the male dancers.

Now, Jay Z’s performance is a whole different story. Although the legend made us wait, a long time, all the crampt conditions and crowd thug behavior was worth it. After being squashed for 30 minutes in the typical British rain, the crowd was rich with excitement when he finally arrived. Performing an extreme performance of majority of his previous smashers – Not only did Rihanna join him on stage for ‘Run This Town’ but M.I.A came on stage with an awesome performance of her track ‘Bad Girls’ and ‘Paper Planes’ (which was cut short due to technical failures). Just as the crowd thought he was done, close friend, Kanye West pops out of no where to give us a cut down version of the Watch The Throne tour. Performing ‘Niggas In Paris’ not once, not twice but 3 times!

All together, the Hackney Weekend was a fudging fudge fantastic way to spend a Saturday Afternoon!

For the first time, I actually agreed with Lil Kim when she said ‘If you have to make a song called Stupid Hoe.. then you must be the stupid hoe’

But I guess Nicki was right when she said ‘you damn well couldn’t get an interview before and when you do they asking you about Nicki Minaj’

That made sense to me. But I didn’t like the presenters and how they we’re trying to get a bashing interview, I didn’t think that was appropriate. But, for once, Lil Kim handled that quite well. She’s still a hater..

 

 

 

GIRL DID GOOD!

Well, Im not sure about you guys, but I’m so so so proud of Adele. Former BRIT kid (if you dont know what the BRIT school is, search my website), lover of Eastenders, cockney queen. Girl definately did good Ad! Not only did she RINSE out the Grammy Awards last Sunday but she did it with such grace and poise. And to have the world waiting for HER performace. And by golly did she live up to expectations. She rose from one of the most difficult times of her life and still managed to give THE most incredible performance!

I’ll say it again, GIRL DID GOOD!
