We could take or leave a Busta verse on anything at this moment. It seems that it goes 1) ask Nicki (she rarely does remixes anymore as she is massive), then 2) ask Busta Rhymes when it comes to songs from the Caribbean that need a US artist to break into the US. We wish that they would think a little outside the box and maybe get someone suited for the song rather than someone who will get automatic blog hits (the standard bearers of Hip Hop blogs are usually in their early 40’s/late 30’s hence the continual posting of anything from their golden age). The original version which leaked (remix, not the OG song) was garbage, this newer version is better. Let’s hope it pushes the song further along, Bunji deserves it.

As London gets ready to host the world’s biggest sporting event we are getting into the Olympic spirit at HDD HQ. Here are our top 5 sporting videos covering athletics, gymnastics, boxing and table tennis.
Roots Manuva – Witness
Roots Manuva’s Witness is a tune that always gets a massive reaction at our events (and at pretty much every event its played at). The tune is a classic and so is the video, where we see Roots training to win at his primary school sports day.
Kanye West – Champion
Kanye in puppet form representing the US in the Unified games, this Steely Dan sampling track is taken from his Graduation album. Like many of Kanye’s videos at the time, it got released and taken down. It’s a shame because this is great.
The Fugees feat A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes & John Forte – Rumble in The Jungle
Taken from the soundtrack to When Were Kings – a documentary about the heavyweight championship between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman, Rumble in The Jungle features the Fugees and a heavyweight lineup of mcs. The video is an excellent juxtaposition of film clips and footage of the mcs in the ring.
Chemical Brothers – Elektrobank
Gymnastics is probably one of the only Olympic sports that I (Kazabon) take time out to watch. The video for Chemical Brothers Elektrobank features my favourite element of the gymnastic course – the floor routine. The precision and flair that gymnasts have in their routines never ceases to impress and this video captures all elements of the atmosphere, from the coaches, to the crowd, to the bitchy girls on the opposing team.
Air – Kelly Watch The Stars
French duo Air teamed up with Mike Mills, with whom they collaborated a further 3 times, for this table tennis inspired video. This is one event that UK people will be paying some attention to since the Mayor of London championed it as the British sport (apparently it was invented here and was called Wiff- Waff)
So we posted the hot 97 version a couple of weeks ago but we had to post the official video because it has Diplo break dancing, Chris Brown dressing up like Spike Lee and everyone wearing starter jackets and lots and lots of fitteds.
