Jackie Chain - Mack A Bitch

Jackie Chain is out with a new single called Mack A Bitch produced by BlockBeataz. I think Jackie Chain's a really talented rapper but he seems to be rapping about the wrong things. What's even worse is that he's even flashing guns in the club! LMAO.

Altimet - Syukur

Malaysian rapper Altimet has just released his music video for Syukur. There's a lot of heart in this song. The song's message is to remind people to be grateful and give thanks for everything they have, even in times of uncertainty. The music video for Syukur was shot all throughout Kuala Lumpur, showing the many different attractions of the city, even the Petronas Towers which were formerly the world's tallest building until 2004.

The sexiest election campaign rally EVER!!

Whoaa.. is this how they really do election rallies in the Philippines? Those pinays are smokin hot, especially the one to the right of D-Coy. There's a WHOLE LOT of hip thrusting in their dance and even a little ass wiggling for the crowd. I don't know much about this "Erap" guy they are all rooting for, but I can tell you off the rip that if that's how he runs his election campaign rallies, this guy is a straight up GANGSTA.

Dog G disses Jay Chou for not using his "diao"

Here's some Taiwanese celebrity gossip for you guys today...

Taiwanese celebrity television host Patty Hou, who considered as mega-babe status in Taiwan, will be getting married sometime year to a multi-millionaire Citigroup executive, Ken Huang. Patty Hou also publicly declared that she IS virgin and that is saving herself for marriage. Then all a sudden in comes rapper Dog G who released a little freestyle rap dissing Jay Chou, Patty's ex-boyfriend, for not tappin that ass when they were together for about 2 years. Jay is pretty pissed off at Dog G and just said he just name drops and disses celebrities to become famous. But that brings us to this question...

............Do you think Jay got a piece of that Patty cake? LOL.

More pics of Patty Hou:

Dayyyyyyyum...she's gorgeous.

And here's her lucky baller banker fiance, Ken Huang.

Of course when they tie the knot, the paparazzi will be all over them like white on rice, trying to find out whatever scandal they can. Some of the media speculates that Patty Hou is already pregnant and this might be a shotgun wedding. Yup, that's how the Taiwanese media is. They are monsters!!

Oh well. I hope these two will be very happy together!!

Jay Chou lashes out at rapper Dog G for insulting song

Posted: 17 February 2010 1422 hrs

TAIPEI : Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou has lashed out at rapper Dog G for writing a song about ex-girlfriend Patty Hou's virgin bride status that indirectly insulted him.

The Taiwanese rapper, inspired by media reports that the soon-to-be-married television host Hou is a virgin bride, wrote in his song that Chou "writes about being 'diao' [cool, powerful] in his songs, but is all talk and never used it".

The word 'diao' can also refer to the male genitalia in the Taiwanese dialect.

Chou joked that it was up to the Green Hornet - the singer plays Kato in the upcoming Hollywood film of the same name - and Panda Heroic - a panda themed superhero played by Chou's close friend Devon Song - to uphold justice. So he asked Song, popularly known as Dan Tou, to respond on his behalf.

"If Dog G did not rely on scolding other people, he would be an unknown singer," said Song.

"I originally wanted to write a song to stand up for Chou but he [Chou] told me to spend time with my family over the Lunar New Year period and not waste my time," Song added.

Song also said that he was not happy with the way Dog G insulted his close friend and especially disliked the way the rapper showed no respect towards women. He pointed out that Hou was getting married soon and Dog G should not have brought attention to rumours that could smear her name.

Dog G on the other hand claimed he wrote the song because he found the media's obsession with virginity irksome and wanted to "showcase this serious issue with humour".

Dog G, whose real name is Zeng Guanrong and best known for his current affairs-inspired songs, also said that he "did not think scolding other people would make [him] popular" and welcomed Chou to write a song to admonish him, though he said that he would retaliate.

Philippine presidential candidates begin their electoral campaign

Philippine presidential candidates taking a picture before a presidental debate

The Philippines will finally get its chance for a new president in May 2010. Let's hope they choose the right person this coming May!

From BBC News:
Philippine poll campaign begins
By Vaudine England
BBC News, Bangkok

Official campaigning has begun in the Philippines for the first presidential elections in six years.

President Gloria Arroyo is not allowed to run again in the vote on 10 May.

Competition is intense between two opposition figures, with Mrs Arroyo's nominee and a former president lagging in the polls.

Long proud of its democratic traditions, the Philippines has still failed to find a leader able to deliver peace and prosperity.

For the wealthiest candidates, the political advertising has been going on for months.

The violence that has been part of every Philippine election started early too - the mass killing of 57 people in the southern province of Maguindanao in November has set a grim tone.

Election campaigns in the Philippines usually deliver showmanship, drama, personality clashes and genuine idealism.

What they rarely offer is any cogent debate of ideas or contest of policies.

This campaign is no exception.

"It's going to be a very tight race," says political analyst, writer and journalist Marites Vitug.

"Manny Villar is running a disciplined campaign and has enormous funds at his disposal - he could be our Thaksin, or our Berlusconi," she said, in reference to the wealthy former Thai and current Italian leaders.

The wealthiest candidate, Mr Villar, claims an affinity with the poor, the vast voting majority.

He was once a fish market seller and is now the biggest home-builder in the Philippines.

Ruling class

Mr Villar is up against Benigno "NoyNoy" Aquino, son of the revered former President Cory Aquino. He enjoyed an early surge soon after her death last year, but is now neck-and-neck with Mr Villar.

Lagging behind is Gilberto Teodoro, the current president's favourite, and the former movie star and former president Joseph "Erap" Estrada.

Also in the race is the former Mayor of Olongapo Richard Gordon, someone known as a good manager.

But as always in the Philippines, it will be the money, and the personalities, that count.

"It will really take a lot of resources, and I'm not referring to money alone," said Ronald Holmes, of the political science department of Manila's De La Salle University and president of the survey group, Pulse Asia.

Spending limits do exist, but an apparent lack of manpower has prevented the Commission on Elections (Comelec) from ever prosecuting anyone for over-spending.

"The primary issues are the old issues of economic growth and the problem of poverty," said Mr Holmes.

Alongside a widespread desire for cheaper commodity prices is the topic of corruption.

There is little indication, however, that any of the current crop of candidates will make any more progress on that than the country's rich ruling class has managed in the past.

This is TB 亂流's new song for the ladies called So Beautiful.

DOY (도이) - Better Days

DOY - Better Days

This is a pretty up-beat single by Korean rapper DOY released in January of 2009. Am I trippin or does DOY's rapping kinda reminds you of T (Yoon Mi Rae)? DOY also has that fast paced, semi-raspy style EXACTLY like T's. The general feel of the song is also very much like T's rap songs. Heck, if I found a YouTube video with T's picture in it, I'd probably think it was T's new single. You know what, maybe DOY to T is like The Realest to 2pac haha. Anyways I like this song. It gets a thumbs up from me.

Freestyle Battle - Sympal Mynd vs True Temper

Chinese-American battle emcee, True Temper sent me this YouTube footage of him battling Sympal Mind.

From an email he sent to me:
Hi, this is a video of me that got posted recently from a battle back in October for that was part of Grind Time's fundraiser for Dirtbag Dan and Madness. I'm pretty nerdy so Lush wasn't down to put it on Drect's channel so I'm trying to drum up some views.

I stumbled a bit in the first round. My opponent used a lot of racial jokes and I burned him for it in the 3rd round.
Oh yes you did! Props!!

YET ANOTHER brawl in the Taiwanese Parliament

Another brawl broke out in Taiwan's parliament two weeks ago. Taiwan's parliament fights are world-renowned. It stems for their passion for democracy. Way to demonstrate to Mainland China how politically stable Taiwan's democracy is. Who cares about the democratic process? If I were to punch you in the face, you might think twice before passing any legislature! Yeah cos that's how we we roll 'round here....

Article from BBC News:
Brawl breaks out in Taiwan parliament after policy row

A brawl has broken out in Taiwan's parliament as lawmakers from opposing parties clashed over proposed amendments to the Local Government Act.

Politicians punched and wrestled each other to the ground and one member of the governing party said he'd been bitten by a member of the opposition.

It is not the first time that scuffles have broken out as Jonathan Josephs reports.
