Being a model at the same time, Maya Jane Cole could already been seen on renowned magazines or campaigns such as Dr. Martens. While her modeling career has an eno

A Sit Down With…Cadet | Pardon My Blog

Grinding his way to the top is Cadet’s mission. Outstanding lyricism which genuinely captures his emotions and gritty bars managed to get the rapper from South London enormous support from industry leaders such as Charlie Sloth, DJ Semtex, Wiley and Stormzy. Recently, the „underrated legend“ caused attention through his release of letters to his cousin Krept from rap duo Krept & Konan in which he contemplates about their relationship and his retrieval of motivation regarding music by going to

Are We Rating….Casscade’s In The Moment? | Pardon My Blog

After releasing his highly anticipated Living In The Moment EP earlier this year, North West London’s Casscade just dropped the visuals for his wavy track In The Moment.

The music video contains everything fun – board games, video games, drinks and banter with his TooRare ToDie gang. Of course gorgeous ladies are present as well!

Are We Rating… Mugun’s new track ‘The Sweetest Ting’? | Pardon My Blog

The Sweetest Ting is the new release from Coventry-based rapper Mugun. Kickstarting his musical journey last year by winning ‘Best Urban Act’ at the Unsigned Music Awards and receiving a ‘Get Rated’ nomination at the Rated Awards, he was soon named as ‘one to watch’. Now everybody knows that Lauryn Hill is an absolute queen, which is probably also what Mugun thought when he decided to sample the instrumentals to her classic The Sweetest Thing. Cleverly enough, he renamed his track to The Sweete

Until We Meet Again comes with four tracks in total, each one being a masterpiece of its own. Kicking off wit

EMIL links up with P Money for debut single “Hero” | Pardon My Blog

Emerging singer EMIL recently unveiled the official visuals for her current single Hero featuring close friend P Money. This is not their first collaboration though as she has previously featured on his mixtape Money Over Everyone, so her vocals might sound familiar to some. Born and raised in the 90’s, the Hackney-based artist grew up listening to the likes of Sade and Lauryn Hill from who she draws inspiration for her songs – as again evident in Hero. The soulful Ras-produced track finds EM

WPGM Recommends: Ciara - Jackie (Album Review)

Ciara has been in the music business for a very long time now. Starting off as a youngster with the Lil Jon-produced hit “Goodies” back in 2004 she has come a long way. With absolute bangers such as “Like A Boy” and “Promise”, she thoroughly worked herself up to the top of the R&B game. And it is safe to say that every time she has released a new album, it has sounded a bit more mature and different to the previous ones. After giving birth to a son and going through a rather tough break-up w
