BOY OF THE WEEK

I'm in New York at the moment, I'm back on Monday and am obviously missing all things English, so it was with great delight that I rediscovered The Streets this week while browsing through my American hosts itunes.


I think we should all take a moment out to just realise how fucking amazing Mike Skinner is. Apart from being totally FIT and giving a sexy edge to Reebok Classic'd geezers up and down Britain, he's sooooo talented and relistening to his albums I'm walking through the Lower East Side totally hyped up remembering just how fresh sounding it was at the time. He also really took time to promote other artists and always did great remixes (one of my faves being Lady Sov's verse on Fit But You Know It remix!!!)

ANDDDDD on top of that he always had this image locked down - his clothes, his album artwork and his logos were all dope, giving a clear image of what he was about!

I HEART MIKE SKINNER....









And now a few of my fave videos...
