1Xtra today announced the launch of the station's first ever flagship event, 1Xtra Live. A massive line-up of artists is confirmed to perform at the free gig, including Akon, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown and Craig David. The inaugural event takes place at Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Saturday 22nd March.
Do these two never stop? (LOL!!) I mean the amount of CD’s that Wolftown Recordings are unleashing they must easily be the most prolific Hip-Hop record label in the UK. Here they showcase Akon’s latest signing Red Café, a man who is creating a real buzz Stateside with his tracks being the new soundtrack for the streets.
This rare underground album from urban music’s new voice is in my opinion the best Akon CD out there to buy. Miami’s Rick Ross jumps up on ‘Cross The Line’ the opening track to great effect. Akon’s down to earth lyrics keep the album gully throughout but his smooth vocal tones inject soul too giving us the best of both worlds.
Talent Quest offers you the chance to join the line-up! Britishhiphop.co.uk is always one step ahead of the rest when it comes to bringing you exclusive music news and features, but this time around we have a big one!
