Yooooooo been away for a hot minute, had to go quickly check a couple links out in Scotland, don't dwell on that but the main thing is I'm back now. Let's get into it.

I don't know if I posted about this when I first made a batch but this is the lunch I've been eating recently most days. It's super cheap and healthy, and proper delicious.

I'm basically cooking brown rice and mixing that with a load of fried vegetables (peppers, peas, sweetcorn, red onions, green beans) and kidney beans then grilling some chicken breasts in a fajita seasoning. Then I'm like making individual portions, with the rice in a peri peri sauce, serving with a couple of roasted chilli peppers, a dollop of greek yogurt, a squirt of lemon juice and some salt and pepper. It's fucking unreal and I can't get bored of it.

Do you know about this international supermarket near the flyover? It's kind of sick you know. Have a look when you get a chance.

I released my new grime EP on Sunday. It's 9 brand new tracks I've been working on recently. I had a launch party at Beastwang at Sophbeck, it was pure good fun, I love that crowd. The EP is going down well, I played some of the tunes out and performed some of the tunes and it went off, I was well chuffed haha. Embedded below is the whole EP available to stream on Soundcloud.

Alright so do you ever have those moments where your head just fucking spiiiiiiins out? Basically the guy pictured on the left is 'Termz' a guy who Olly Gwop found on instagram. He posts videos of these mentally dull, slow paced, bad jokes and they're so bad, they're good. (I've embedded a few below.) He's a cult figure between me and some of my friends. I had no idea that he was local at all, I always thought at best he lived in London, so when Max came running to the DJ booth to tell me Termz from instagram was in Sophbeck I lost my fucking head. I felt a bit starstruck.

Pretty much the coolest toaster I've ever seen. it had a 'quick look' button that made the toast rise up for a second then sink again. Futuristic.

Check out this weird creepy baby doll in some bed and breakfast in Scotland.

I was up in Scotland scattering my (Scottish) Dads ashes. I was kind of dreading it, you know as you so with these sorts of things, but it was really nice in the end. Me, my sisters and my mum went around to a load of places he grew up, spent time when he was younger and went on holidays with my mum. I've not been there except for a few days in Glasgow when I was 19 for like 20 years, so it was really nice to go back and have a nose about.

I wanted to buy this. Fantasies of the shop keeper drumming up conversation with me over how I climbed Ben Nevis. Just telling him I didn't but I want everyone to think I did hahaha. Is that funny in your head? Fuck me it's funny in mine.

We went to loads of places, pure road tripping. Did about 1,000 miles in the rental car in 4 days.

I love how mad for Irn Bru they are in Scotland. They have so much cool stuff we don't have in England like these Irn Bru ice creams. I used to adore Irn Bru when I was like 15/16. I'd drink so so much of it, like 5/6 cans a day. Me and Kyle Buswell just hammering it. Massive 39p 2 litre bottles getting put away.

Scotland was pretty sick, we went to some really scenic spots. The countryside is cool to visit but I can't imagine being one of those people who live in the middle of nowhere. I just don't get how they do it. The Leicestershire guys baffle me as it is, choosing to live somewhere where you can't get pizza delivered, you have to pay £20 for a taxi out of town and the only shops you have are a post office and a Chinese takeaway that both close pure early. Let alone the middle of the Scottish hills. Sod that, I need a Tesco Express within walking distance at all times.

I caught this fucking just slipping into first gear and pulling off. I banged on the window and he put it back in neutral and just looked at me blankly. He fucking knows what he was doing.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.

So this can go one of two ways. We can either take it at face value and think ok, that's that guy who plays poker, makes stupid money doing it, has that crazy Instagram account that's full of guns and hot babes, he's the best. Or we can look at it like this is that show off rich cunt who we all can't wait to have his 3rd heart attack and finally be taken from this earth.

After a little digging and reading you find out that this guy is actually a dickhead. Not only did he kick some woman in the face during his birthday celebrations the other year, he also broke a porn stars foot when throwing her off of a roof for some stunt for a photoshoot. The real flipper is when you realise that he goes on like his riches are made solely from playing poker, and plays down the fact that his dad has $62m to his name. VERY INTERESTING

Basically, the short of it is that he is the absolute king of the rich kids. All the fucking free money dickheads you know who just get pumped money from their parents to go and live an unreal life and cover social media with brags about it, this guy is the top of the pile. All those wankers who get called 'lucky' by their equally privileged peers for being bought cars on their 18th birthday, this guy is the king.

Wooooooy little back to back edition. Get into it, we've got all the bits.

I hate green bananas. It annoys me that shops get away with stocking this shit. They aren't even nearly fucking ripe. What happens if I want to walk into Tesco and have a lovely banana? I either have to endure the chalky, rock solid piece right now or I can wait for it to turn from green to brown in a few days? Rubbishland

I've never seen one of these on the road before just driving about like a normal car haha.

Had a little sloz with some of the boys the other weekend.

There were £1 jagerbombs. It wasn't supposed to be a messy one. Last thing I remember is Max leading some random student girl into chanting 'Jewboy Grubb!' at me over and over again in the smoking area.

Shadow demon

I went to a house party on the Saturday night. This girl Emma made this delicious spiced orange chocolate cake. Man, fuck me. i kept going back for more. The more drunk I got the more I wanted. It was so moist and delicious.

They had rented a hot tub. As the night wore on it turned into an erotic homosexual semi naked fighting arena. I can't support that kind of stuff at a house party.

So you know how they've done up Soar Point? check what they've done to the big screen. This is it on by the way. It's far too bright now for a projector to work, and they've put these massive dumb lights sticking out all in the way and shit. They've fucked it.

Their new menu is a good laugh too. Me and Tom read over it and the word 'pulled' is on the menu 23 times. That's ridiculous isn't it. How forced and fashionable.

I really don't get this stuff. These two lads are the gym were both wearing the same purple t shirt, a gold watch, both had the quiff with the short back and sides, tattoos, tapered leg black trackies and huaraches. I don't get how this happens. Which one of these dressed like this first for the other one to copy? I really don't get it. How could you both leave the house wearing a uniform? Why am I now taking photos in the gym?

I bought this the other day! It's so nice, there's a nice insert with the liner notes and stuff. I might mount it on my wall. I've got the 320kbps mp3 version, why would I want to listen to this dusty old shit?

Old Reido having a go in New York

This is how carelessly rich Leicester uni students are. Just leaving iPads wherever. It doesn't matter, just buy another because you aren't a peasant.

Shittest photo ever to exist on the earth since the dawn of time but this old boy was getting on the bus aptly wearing a hat that said 'BUSES' on it. haha how fitting and perfect, so so into that. I wonder what the actual shittest photo ever to exist on the earth since the dawn of time is.

Went to see J Cole, Pusha T and Jhene Aiko. This guy in front of me with his phone plugged in stood still and snapchatted the whole show. I saw him flick onto his story and it was 1080 seconds. Who the fuck is watching that? Who gives a fuck?

J Cole was fun. I think I'm done with seeing him now though, thats my third time and he is past his best for me. His new music is so conscious and enlightened, I really struggle with that sort of music. If I want to broaden my mind I'm not going to do it through the medium of rap music. That's not what I'm here for.

He has one song from his new album called 'Love Yours' and it's about how as long as you have love around you, and you're with the ones you love then money isn't equal to happiness. The hook is 'I think being broke was better, no such thing as a life that's better than yours'. Bit fucking rich coming from a multi millionaire, I'd snap my fingers and swap my life for his in a second without even thinking about it.

I'm looking forward to having my soul cleansed when I go see G Unit in July and they'll be talking about guns, money, fucking girls, jewellery and robbing people haha.

There was a outdoor washing and drying thing at this garage in Birmingham. When I was pissed up this seemed far more notable and post worthy, it's only now I'm realising how boring this is. I'm sorry.

More kissing going on. Everyone is bloody kissing.

We decided to stay out in Birmingham and just get the first train back. We went to Propaganda at the O2. Drinking sex and the beach cocktails and doing tequila shots hahaha.

Pretty good fun you know, they played some good music. We were all hammered.

Ziner is one of the best you know. I always used to have a bit of a bias against NFA because when they had some beef with the Leicester lot years ago, but he is a fucking banger. check out his instagram here

We made it, after a sloppy McDonalds we got on the train. That was Friday and I can still feel it in me now. I'm not young anymore.

This is the new wave. If I wasn't in such a rush I would have quickly copped a box. Stupid placement really on the way out rather than the way in. It's not like I can just pay for them at the imaginary tills in the car park is it?

That's a bumper WL special for you lot, big up all the sloppers that made it through, see you soon!

Here is the video for the first track from my forth coming EP. Shot by Joe Whitmore, edited by myself. Check it out and make sure you get down to the launch night this Sunday at Sophbeck!

Last weekend myself, Sandy and Miles got over to Crafty at St Martins Coffee. I'm not a tea or coffee drinker myself, so these places tend to go under my radar but St Martins Coffee have been open for years. They recently opened as a gourmet hand made burger place in the evening and I've never known a buzz like it. EVERYONE is talking about these guys. We had to go down and check it out.

*Note: I've chose to discard the previous points scoring system I employed whilst writing these restaurant reviews. It's kind of hard to judge all eating establishments by the same criteria when some are chicken shops, some are chain restaurants and some are stand alone independent traders. Also, I scored a couple pretty average places pretty high a few years ago so it never left me much wriggle room haha



DECOR: The place looks wicked. I guess when to take into account how long it's been open and trading as a coffee shop I wasn't expecting anything other than it to already have a real sense of personality. It's like it's pure clean and modern but still kind of bric-a-brac. The furniture is all sort of odd, but within the same colour schemes as the bright accents, as are vintage lampshades and a few other little details.

If you are a tea or coffee drinker they have the biggest selection.

PRICE: It's pretty cheap you know! I was expecting it to be a bit more. Considering they've tapped into the trendy hipster market they could charge what they want and people would still flock. Look at those wankers in East London paying £4 a pop for a bowl of cereal. But they don't, a burger and fries is an extremely reasonable £10, with the option to 'pimp your fries' for £2.50.

They've got a real nice selection of soft drinks and a couple of craft beers

ATMOSPHERE: The atmosphere was awesome. I love that feeling when you walk into a place that's newly opened and still got that buzz around it. Every single plate that came by everyone was looking over desperate to get a look at the food. You could almost feel the excitement haha. The open kitchen and counter covers one whole side of the room, so it's nice watching food and drinks being prepared in the background. It was busy enough to have a bit of noise and that but it wasn't at all overwhelming. It's cool.

FOOD: Oiiiii the food. The food! Haha it was wicked, I can't wait to go back. From the menu - 'Crafty burgers come in a steamed brioche bun with pickles, red onion and lettuce. Beef is dry aged for 28 days, ground on site daily and hand crafted. Bread is baked daily by Milner's Bakery of Blaby. Cheese is from Country Faye of Leicester Market.' It was crazy in short. Everything was spot on and for once a burger place that doesn't bulk out every burger with a massive sloppy slice of tomato! My dream come true.

The 'pimped' fries are where this place really takes the win though. I'm getting sick of seeing photos of topped fries on the internet. It's like it's something America do that's almost too delicious for places here to get behind and just go for. Not these guys, they embrace is. Check the menu further up this post, they do a selection of different fries all handmade and smothered in different sauces, dips, meats and cheeses. They were the best thing about our visit.

SERVICE: The service was so warm and welcoming. The owners were floating about the place answering questions and asking how stuff was in-between serving people. It was weird because usually I like to be left to my food, but I guess the difference between some drippy guy bringing out food in some chain place and these guys is that these guys are invested. You could tell they were proud of their product and it was nice to feel like your custom was valued, rather than some guy at TGI's who thinks not leaving you alone is him doing a good job. They answered any questions we had, gave recommendations and were always on hand. As we left this woman who was working said 'Ahhh it's been great to see you, see you again' and it was so genuine. I might start drinking coffee if this is what the world of coffee shops are like haha.

CONCLUSION: I literally don't have a bad word to say about this place. If you like handmade, fresh good food (and frankly who doesn't) you're onto a winner. It's priced nicely, the menu is concise while still having enough options (apparently there is a chicken thigh burger that's meant to be amazing, that's me next time), the drink selection is top notch and it just feels good to be in there. We sat chatting for another half an hour after our food was finished and we didn't feel like all eyes were on us to get the bill and get out. The staff are nice and personable, you can see why this place has a complete buzz around it at the minute. They've got really active social media and it's clear the market they're going after.

It's wonderful to see an independent burger place in Leicester city centre hanging out with the big boy chain stores at the Highcross. If I get a craving for a cheeseburger I'm going to go to Crafty.
