Barnes the gangsta

March 4th, 2006 / Filed Under: sport / No Comments / Tags: , , , ,

It seems that John Barnes wants to get back in to the rap game with a part on the England World Cup single, especially if it includes gangtsa rap. He came to my university for a Q&A session and probably half of the questions were about the Anfield Rap (the others were about the Lucozade ad). Can you really do a motivating gangsta rap about football? Is it still gangtsa rap if there’s no swearing (can’t see the FA sanctioning a song with Barnes using the “n-word”)?

And I’ve just noticed it’s Christian O’Connell organising it on Virgin Radio. I’d heard he left XFM (the show I used to listen to on the way to work every morning), just can’t see it beeing the same on Virgin. Anyone been listening and know if its any good?

What's Your Take?
