On The Verge

Chiwawa & DNA

Who will be the next Kenyan artist to blow? 2007 is only in its second month but the battle to claim the title of ‘Hottest New Artist’ is intensifying with every week. Already, 8 new acts have been nominated in the CHAT Awards ‘Teeniez Surprise Artist’ category, with Wambui (of Calif), CLD, Chiwawa and Maleek looking as red hot favourites. So who do you think 2007 belongs to? We think it could be between Bobby (The Buggz), Maleek, DNA & Chiwawa, what do you think?

Throwing Some D’s On This Blog

Y’all must have heard Rich Boy’s runaway hip hop hit “Throw Some D’s” by now, so ama get straight to the point: what the heck is Rich Boy talking about when he says “D’s?” I mean the song is tight and everything, the track is off the hizzo, but a lot of peeps are curious and wondering what the cat is talking about. Especially when a 9 minute remix to the hit song has been done and it features an all-star lineup consisting of The Game, Lil Jon, Nelly, Andre 3000, Murphy Lee, Rick Ross, Kanye West, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones.
Now, that’s where I come in…(you’re gonna love me for this). In his hit track Rich Boy is referring to installing Dayton Wire Rims on a car. Dayton Wire Rims, often referred to as “Daytons” are like the Nike’s of car rims and have been popular by rap music. So the next time your bumping your head to Rich Boy’s latest hit track, you can educate your crew on exactly what the new kid is talking about.
Rich Boy’s self-titled debut album is set to be released on March 13th.
