Through The Wire

Man, they bunned down Randy's fostermamma house on The Wire last night. That was messed up. Plus that tragic spoilt dude with the afro-puff and the crazy evil psychobitch mother with the nostrils like laundry-chutes copped a slap off Michael-With-The-Crackhead-Moms for being an giant penis structure and cried like Chris de Burgh in the gym. And the guy who runs the gym, who Michael thinks is kinda is creepy, and is kinda creepy, actually, got shot in the legs for trying to help Michael out step on his peoples' pavement. And Omar The Hero, who even my institutionally-homophobic friends can't help but admit is awesome, went and robbed ALL THE DRUGS IN BALTIMORE. Well, a week or so's worth.

And that's not even going into the whole politricks side of things, or that sweet, sad stuff with Prezbo and Charles Hamilton Dukie. That was one episode! Damn, season 4 of The Wire is incredible.

So, that Streetfighter joint is doing big things. The dude at Capcom, he say,

Honestly, this is the best thing I've ever heard, ever. DRAGON GONNA LAY MANS DOWN is all we're shouting. And we're shouting it. Can you tell Akira The Don he's a fucking legend? This shits all over all the other remixes I've heard.

A lot of you have been hitting me up with questions about the thing, so here's what it was - this dude who's doing the PR on Street Fighter 4 hit me up asking if I'd be interested in getting my hands on all the music and sounds from Streetfighter 2. And I was like, hell yeah! And I made that beat, and Littles, Narst and P came round, and we spat all over it.

The accompanying art was indeed by me. I'm Ryu cos Littles bagged Ken. After I'd drawn it Littles pointed out that there's actually character called Akira in the game, which I had no memory of at all, but I don't care cos I look dope as Ryu and I am now wearing the ninja headband Wade got me from Japan.

For the record, I'm most enamoured with the clean version. Speaking of which, I was listening to radio 4 this morning, and Lenny Henry was talking about how he's "shitting it" about playing Othello. How come Lenny Henry gets to say "shitting it" on Radio 4 in the morning and I can't say "piss" on Radio 1 at 10pm? Sheeeeeeeeeet!

OK. I gotta go finish my VAT stuff, then I'll be dropping the Streetfighter remix comp ish. SPINNING BIRD KICK!
