Prince William & Princess Kate Interview/Review 'Arrogance Is Bliss' Ft. Sean Price #RoyalWedding

I recently caught up with the happy couple to chop it up, twist some trees and premier my new AA single featuring Sean Price and Stig Of The Dump. What follows is an entirely truthful account of our 'conversation'.



"Wow, this jazz fag is the bomb diggy." Prince William is coughing and spluttering. As suspected, the calibre of piff supplied to this balding, regal, horse-faced batty is a little too much for his precious, jewel encrusted lungs. "Kate, darling, come and take a puff on this.... What do you call this, David?"

"Cannabis, Will."

"Cannabis, that's the ticket. Jolly good. Oh Catherine dear, do come over here and take a 'hit' on this 'cannabis' and meet my friend David. He's a rapper
don't you know, and a jolly good one at that."



Getting high with the royals is no joke, especially seeing as Prince William doesn't seem to realise that his darling Kate is blatantly getting some on the side from his snotnosed ginger Nazi of a little brother right underneath his giant schnoz and is none the wiser. I choose to keep my mouth shut regarding this. I'm at Buckingham Palace and the soon to be princess is parading around in next to nothing apparently for the entertainment of myself and Manfred, their butler. Neither of us are interested in her flat, curveless frame but humour her nonetheless as she parades around the room, tripping over and stumbling like a toddler in her mothers heels, looking more like Barbara Windsor with a booze problem in "Carry On Trying" than soon-to-be royalty. I've nearly run out of patience with her and start to wonder why I've even bothered coming here in the first place.



"Stop hogging the blunt Billy, shit" I say, snatching the trees off the little prick. "Put the music on and shut the fuck up." As soon as 'Arrogance Is Bliss' Ft. Sean Price, Stig Of The Dump and DJ Manipulate (produced by Ido) comes banging out of the speakers, the mood in the room changes noticeably. Prince Will, having taken just a little too much in on that last go round, starts having violent seizures and foaming at the mouth, convulsing, involuntarily smashing his own head against the marble fire place. Kate Middleton reacts to the music a little better, attempting to 'drop down and get her eagle on' on top of a priceless 15th century mahogany coffee table, scratching the shit out of the finish with her diamond studded Jimmy Choos. By the time Sean Price's verse kicks in, Manfred has had enough. "You fucking BITCH!! I've had it up to here with you!!!" He's screaming, tears welling up in his eyes. He has reached his breaking point.





Manfred rushes Miss Middleton, spear tackling the malnourished waif like Kimbo Slice sprinting at Tom Hanks' character in Philadelphia. There is euthanasia on his mind. He has a murderous, demonic glare in his eyes, magnified by the monacle that is ready to crack and shatter due to the pressure of his facial muscles bearing down on it's pewter frame. He throws his full body weight at her, shoulder connecting perfectly with sternum in some sort of beautiful yet brutally violent union, producing a satisfying CRACK, folding her in two with the ease of the fingers of a well trained master of origami working with damp crepe paper; she wheezes as the oxygen is forced from her body, her frame flying through the air, crashing into the wall, spraying blood all over a painting of Prince Philip (cock) before her limp, lifeless body thumps to the floor like a bag of dry dog turds. I think she might be dead, but neither Manfred nor I bother to check. She's dead to us, and that's what matters.

By this time Prince William has seemingly got himself under control. Before he has the chance to see the smashed sack of skin and bones that is supposedly his future Princess lying motionless on the floor, I quickly slam on 'Brain Basher', one of the free tracks that comes with the download of Arrogance Is Bliss, part of a 14 track package for £3 available from http://enlish.bandcamp.com. With this, both he and Manfred are invigorated; it seems that the apparent madness haunting Jack Nicholson and the Overlook Hotel in The Shining has now pervaded the walls of this very palace. While I sit back and leisurely smoke, all the while listening to the incredible music bumping out of the speakers, Bill and Manny take turns in violently headbutting each other and having a 'who can kick each other in the nuts the hardest' contest. It transpires that Prince Billy is no pushover, smashing poor Manfred in the bollocks so hard that he starts vomiting blood.



While revelling in his victory over the lowly manservant by pouring an entire bottle of Cristal over his head, William then unfortunately notices the crumpled sack of plasma and marrow that used to be his fiancee. As 'There You Go', an MOP sampling banger of a track (produced by Grill$smack) kicks in, William quickly and noticably loses his mind, shrieking like a banshee and running around the reception room in erratic circles. At this precise moment, however, he also realises the true extent of the damage to his royal testicles, sustained during the vicious kicking contest between him and the now possibly deceased Manfred. This massive physical trauma, combined with the horrible vision of his bride to be's crushed and lifeless body next to the gilded skirting boards proves a little too much for the inbred pea brain, and he faints, his head smashing once again against the marble fireplace, cracking the ornamental fixture clean in two like a master of karate chopping a wooden board.



So, there I am, still quite happily smoking a joint, surrounded by the blood and the fallout of the carnage, all created by the power of the 'Messed Up/Arrogance Is Bliss' deluxe AA side release (with free 11 track LP) available for purchase NOW from http://enlish.bandcamp.com for £3. I've had enough by now, so I get up to leave. As I'm walking past Manfred's now unrecognisable body and the gaping chasm now clearly visible on Prince Williams head, brains leaking all over the priceless persian rug, the apparently alive Miss Middleton reaches out and grabs my ankle, and with her last gasp of regal breath before she passes out, asks me - "Where can I cop the music, David?"

She is out like a light before I have a chance to answer, so I leave a business card on Manfred's now ruined coffee table and put a high quality, glossy, weatherproof sticker on Bill's head to try and help keep his brains inside.

On the way out of the palace I murder 2 beefeaters and knock a horse clean out with one punch. I then return to Brixton, giggling, buying some curried goat and ackee and saltfish from the takeaway before copping 12 hot wings from KFC with extra BBQ sauce to top it off and head home, satisfied.

I never heard from the royals again. Apparently they were supposed to be getting married or something. Bothered.

Enlish's Sunshine Compilation Tape Vol.2 - FREE D/L

Volume 2 of the Sunshine compilation, this one might appeal to you smokers out there. Some good shit to light up to. Non smokers can appreciate it too though. As before, none of these songs have been used with anyones permission, so if you like what you hear, go and buy it etc etc etc. Just like my single (the one featuring Sean Price? £3 for 14 tracks? Have I mentioned that? http://enlish.bandcamp.com?).

Apologies for the excessive Smoke DZA and Mac Miller if you're not a fan, I am personally (for the most part) and like smoking to these joints... there were more but then things would have got a little lopsided.

Also, the intended running order is below, although I have a suspicion that it'll be jumbled up when you unzip the file. If you get a minute, stick 'em in the order below. It plays a whole lot better.

Mr Busy Presents The Sun Tape (Compilation) Vol 1 - FREE DOWNLOAD



Greetings all. First off, apologies for the blog not being as incredibly balling as usual, the truth is that I've been hard at work getting ready to put out the single, 2 LPs and an EP within the next couple of months, plus I have an actual real life to live as well (hence the name of this very blog). Add to that the fact that the sun has been blazing down for over a week now and I seem to be finding myself with less time to blog as of late. Worry not though, constant reader, as this trend will not continue. I'll be back on my blogging bullshit as soon as all of the various pies that my fingers are stuck in have cooled down a bit.



Anyway, by way of apology and also by way of this fucking magnificent weather, I have compiled a gift for all of you sexy, read-my-blog type motherfuckers, in the form of a Summer Mixtape. Please find below the track listings and download links for 'Enlish's Sunshine Tape' Vol 1. That's right, volume 1. There's so many dope summer tunes to play out while you're on the beach, at the park, jamming at a BBQ, skating, baking, doing whatever it is you do during the summer months. So, download, load up your ipod, twist one up for Big Dave and get your summertime on before its too late. As promised, the blog will once again regain the lofty heights upon which it usually rests, but only after I've cleared my schedule and got a decent tan. I know you feel me there.



So, without further ado, get downloading. I just hope the tracks are in the correct order when the file is unzipped. Theres only one way to find out though, innit? Oh, and by the way, none of these songs have been used by permission (obviously), so if you like what you hear and you actually have any money, go support the artists. Word.

Warming up for GZA Last Night



Stig and I warmed up for the GZA last night. In stark contrast to the almost completely apathetic crowd at the Murs gig at the Jazz Cafe last week, the crowd were far more involved and I personally think we smashed it. I particularly enjoyed screaming 'fuck the royal wedding' on the mic, which might have got the biggest cheer of the night.



GZA himself smashed the show, but as is usually the case, proved himself to be a complete and utter miserable bastard afterwards. To be fair, I was shitfaced drunk and obviously cock blocking him (for hitting on MY girlfriend), plus he's pushing 50, but I still think that when a life long fan who is also your support act tries to give you a little love you should reciprocate, even if its fake, rather than just be a grumpy prick about it. Oh well.

HONOUR AMONGST THIEVES (TDK Chronicles)

'Home Dubbing.... The Death Of The Music Industry"

A small sample from the Pirahna Tank™



Back in the day, when I first really got into Hip Hop in around '93, there were sooooooo many good albums coming out. So many, in fact, that not one person could possibly afford to buy them all. Luckily, I had 3 or 4 like minded friends, and so we shared the burden of paying £14.99 per album between us, unless something was particularly necessary (i.e. all of the Wu Tang LPs in my case). Once one of us had purchased a particular CD, we would either take a bag full of TDKs home with us or lend out the CD to each person at a time so everyone could get a dub.

In my case, however, a dubbed tape was never going to be as good as the full package with all of the artwork, so I always endeavoured to make the most of my dubbed TDK, usually involving a pencil, some tracing paper and a red ink pen. Observe; I really was/am this geeky with my Hip Hop.



Plenty more where that came from and all.

Come on down. Stig Of The Dump & I will be destroying the stage before Murs has a chance to hop on it.

Enlish Interview with Knowledge Magazine

Big dap goes to Aaron Jackson. For the full interview click HERE



You're close to dropping your Rap Ain't Real, My Life Is Real LP, tell us a bit more about that project...

The project will be made available as a bonus download upon purchase of the Messed Up / Arrogance single on April 23rd. Really it's just a precursor to my main LP, Cold Lazarus, that will be dropping in the near future.

Rap Ain't Real... is a collection of songs written and recorded during the last year or so that I will be making available for free to my dedicated followers upon purchase of the single.

As anyone who knows me knows, I am a big fan of Sean Price (hence getting him on the single) and have been since the first Heltah Skeltah LP dropped in the mid 90s. Rap Ain't Real, My Life Is Real is actually a Sean P lyric, where he continues on to say 'Rap ain't real, my life is real... If you talk about my life, fuck around and get killed'.

I personally found this hilarious as Sean P has said in numerous interviews that he may rap about shooting / murdering people etc, but in reality he is a grown man with a family to look after. However, he is also insinuating that by stepping over the boundary between rap and real life you may be causing a major problem for yourself (he obviously isn't all talk).

I essentially used that line as a green light to include a number of tracks where I go a bit OTT in my lyrics with regards to subject matter (but not too far, of course), but also offset those tracks with ones that are entirely truthful and personal to me on certain levels.

I also used the line to name my blog, where I not only write about my exploits as a rapper including anecdotes, stories, etc from my 'career' but also simply write about day to day things such as heavy weekends, bizarre dreams, good meals, etc. A lot of people seem to think that by being a rapper you're supposed to live a certain lifestyle, where in 99.9% of the cases out there worldwide it's simply not the truth.

I tell stories and home truths through rap and writing, but I'm also quick to poke fun at myself and not take myself too seriously at the same time, although when it comes to my love for the music, I am 110% serious. I just enjoy exploring both sides of the coin and it gives the listener / reader a little more insight into my persona.
