“On this sad excuse for a musical song, the Crookz enter the murky world of Bhangra music videos and encounter the one biggest fear when watching them… seeing your cousin in it!”

From the folks who brought you “Scooter Singh” they got another humorous track ready to drop, the Bhangra Video (Official) will be hitting youtube on the 16th, we will be playing in on The Junction, in our “you got mail” segment. I got it on replay right now, I’m feeling it. Even when Scooter Singh comes on my ipod, it magically gets stuck in my head. Bravo Caravan Crookz!

Check out the video teaser!

Meet Muhammad Abdullah Hamzah (Celt Islam) a fair warning to all you listeners, HIS BEATS ARE ADDICTING. I caught him on chat yesterday, one thing I respect in an artist is when they are aware of current events and not into themselves, but show a genuine concern about the world around them. I had a lot of fun chatting with Muhammad about the protesting/violence in Egypt, David Cameron and students fighting the UK government. Become a fan of Celt Islam on Facebook

No Tulips for Zuckerberg

It must suck when virtual strangers literally know the value of your net worth. The way to Mark Zuckerberg pockets is not by sending him flowers, clever attempt Pradeep Manukonda. Pradeep has been trying to reach Zuckerberg by every means of communication, he told Zuckerberg his mother was dying and he needed money. Zuckerberg filed a restraining order against Manukonda, he must stay 300 feet away from Zuckerberg, his car, his house and office. Manukonda pleaded in his Facebook Notes (blogs) that he “hopes Zuckerberg reaches out to him before its too late” and how he’s in serious need of help. According to court documents, a security guard at the Facebook Headquarters, located in Palo Alto, reported that Manukonda had hit up another Facebook executive for money.
