Whitney Houston: A triple threat talent…

I’m still in shell-shock over Whitney Houston’s death, I saw the breaking news story come up on my fb timeline. I googled it and all the articles confirmed the worst – Whitney Houston, Dead at 48.  Growing up in the 80s, there were two stars I always looked forward to seeing on the TV and they were Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Their songs were truly iconic during that tremulous decade. Whitney had this caliber talent to carry a tune, to the point where most of us would of gone breathless – she could still harmoniously sync to the beat.

I’ll remember Whitney as a triple threat. She could sing, dance and act. As I mention on my facebook, if you are remotely BLESSED with one of those talents it can take you far – but if you have all three – there’s NO LIMITS to your potential. However the demons Whitney faced, like so many of our talented superstars were drugs. She coined the term on the 2002 Diane Sawyer interview “crack is whack” that open a can of worms for comedians to poke fun at her. Right now there’s silence, no one is laughing – all we hear is her amazing vocals coming out of our speakers, TVs, computers and smart phones.

People are suspecting the cause of death had to do with drugs, we won’t know until the coroner report comes out. In my opinion, I think her heart just gave out on her. Dr. Drew talked about addict recovery on CNN, if he had been treating Whitney, he would of advised her to take two years off. In 2010, Whitney told Oprah she was clean, I think she just bit off more than she could chew and it killed her. For those of us who have dealt with drugs issues, whether its our own or family/friends, the rule is take one day at a time. Sometimes planning ahead can lead to one’s demise.

I’ll miss Whitney. But like all great artists, her legacy will live through her music and talent. Be sure to watch the Grammys tonight, Jennifer Hudson will pay special tribute to Whitney Houston.

It’s been a minute, since we’ve heard from THE TRUTH, last time we exchanged tweets, he was heading to India and not looking forward to packing. It’s great to have him back in the UK and connecting once again with us on Urban Desi Radio. He’s got a new track and video out “I make ’em say” the first couple of second, it felt like being back in the theater watching the first 15 minutes of Inception. But the editing job and beats = brilliant! I’m sure we will get another dose of TRUTH SYRUP soon

F**k everyone — I’m the next in line. (The Truth)

I was introduce to The Truth by Mentor Beats, he sent me the Kya Karoon track. It got a lot of air play on Friction’s show on the BBC Asian Network. But was it just because he dropped Bobby’s name? The Truth needs your UK AMAS nominations for best newcomer and urban act!

I trust my pals in the UK when they tweet me up and say “Petz you got to check out this new artist!” Read below to check out a new artist Mentor is working with!

A new artist stepping into the scene, I always love fresh meat mmmmm!!! On July 22nd THE TRUTH will be debuting his first single “Kya Karoon” and just hearing a sample of it, in this video… I can’t wait! The Truth born and raised in East London, as a teenager, the underground UK garage scene captivated his attention. He made his own way through the underground urban scene in East London… where he got to work alongside several MCs and producers. He went toe-to-toe through some tough ass MC battles, finally THE TRUTH was encourage by his mates and fellow MCs to take his music to the next level.

‘I want to make a difference to music, this has been my dream as a child, no more poor quality videos we want to raise the standard of music and represent Asians in the right way, it’s not always about material things and that’s THE TRUTH’. says THE TRUTH. And “truthfully” speaking the Asian scene needs that.

“Kya Karoon” pays homage to some of the British Asian Music industries big players like AG Dolla, Imran khan and RDB. It talks about a young rapper trying to make it into the scene, but not knowing where to go and what to do. I think at one point in our lives, we have all felt this way, I know I have when I was in London trying to “make it” on radio. It amazes me, the Asian scene in the UK is FILLED I’m talking FILLED like a LANDFILL of talented artists, but sadly 90% of the time we will never get a chance to hear their music. Look what’s happening right now with the BBC Asian Network closure, Friction had a strong platform of debuting new artists for our ears… As you can tell, this song, “Kya Karoon” already has me pumped up.

Working with Bobby Wonda, another emerging producer in the scene, has had a passion for music since the tender age of five. He’s felt the trials and tribulations down this musical road. Between Bobby Wonda and THE TRUTH, together they will give the Asian scene an electrifying pulse!
