Lauryn Hill and the amazing disappearing $968,000

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 24 April 2013
Published in: Hoof to the Head
OK, to be clear, this Hoof is not aimed entirely at Lauryn Hill, an artist we've always been rather fond of here at Black Sheep - not least from the way she broke free of the all-consuming, predatory corporation that is Sony.  She can share the burden with the IRS,… Continue>

'Rick Ross' - plastic fakery and misplaced outrage

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 04 April 2013
Published in: Hoof to the Head
It spoke volumes this week that various individuals and groups demanded Rick Ross be removed from a high-profile ad campaign with Reebok, after they got wind of his apparent endorsing of date-rape with a lyric on one of his tracks. On U.O.E.N.O (don't worry too much about remembering the title… Continue>

Lil Wayne: hoes love him like Satan, maaan

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 02 March 2013
Published in: Hoof to the Head
If "rapper" (we're told) Lil Wayne had emerged with his current style of "music" 15 to 20 years ago he would have undergone mass ridicule, been laughed off the scene and would never have been taken seriously in the business again. It's worth reflecting that MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice… Continue>

Beyonce: cake and eat it

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 18 February 2013
Published in: Hoof to the Head
It will be clear by now that nobody is musically royal enough to escape a rightful Hoofing, and, when we think about it, how Mrs Beyonce Carter (by arranged marriage) has managed to escape one for so long is quite the mystery. Continue>

Dappy Dick: when foolishness knows no bounds

By Ewen Ramsbottom | 12 January 2013
Published in: Hoof to the Head
No, we wouldn't have thought it possible either, but sure enough, N-Dubz performing fool Costadinos Contostavlos, (a spelling mistake on the first vowel of the surname, surely?) has re-asserted his status as a surplus to British society's requirements with revelations of his latest antics. A Surrey court has been hearing… Continue>

Published in: Hoof to the Head
So, three months on, and the 'independent' investigation that claims to be following up all leads in the Jimmy Savile paedophile case has yet to address the many claims that, far from a lone predator, the abomination of humanity that was Savile, was in fact procuring children for abuse by… Continue>

Children In Need

By Chunky Mark | 12 November 2012
Published in: Hoof to the Head
Chunky Mark's often spouting controversial subject matter, but in the wake of Jimmy Savile turning out to be a vile paedophile, preying on children whilst working for the British Broadcasting Company, Mark seems somewhat perturbed at Aunty Beeb's effrontery to keep wheeling out Pudsey and punting their Children In Need:… Continue>
