Back by popular demand, it’s me, making a fool of myself once again. This time, I put the lyrics of Lil Wayne under the microscope. Enjoy! Oh and there’s a fair amount of swearing – turn the volume down if you’re watching it in the library.

A little while ago, I decided to hang up by Bangs Goes Rap mic, figuring they just weren’t good anymore – but you people cried out for more! And so, like Jay-Z, I’ve come out of retirement, because the rap game needs me. I feel re-energized, renewed and ready for action. I can’t wait til I get a budget for this thing so I can go out all and finally get those giant chains and back up dancers I want.
Enjoy and let me know which song you’d like me to do next in the comments.

As my rap skills grow, I decided to go with one of my personal faves this week – a little nugget from the one and only Mystikal. I’m sure the word ‘epic’ is often thrown around in association with my rapping, but I may have just surpassed myself this time. Read that sentence back and it’s clear that if nothing else, I have the ego of a rapper down pat. Enjoy! Don’t forget to leave you comments letting me know which rap classic you want me to tackle next.

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned a gazillion times at this point, I’m training for the Paris Half Marathon which takes place on March 6th. I’ve been training pretty hard since November and it’s around this point that it just gets really hard. You’re increasing your distances, your body hurts, you feel sluggish, tired, motivation is lacking and, in my case, your right toenail may have randomly decided to fall off after a training session – in general, running just ain’t seeming as glamourous as it once was.
But alas, thanks to the 20-strong team of Wonder Women that is Team Bangs on the Run, I have a fantastic support network. Not to mention all my lovely readers and Twitter followers who are like my own personal cheering squad.
As of today, it is just seven weeks to race day. Team Bangs on the Run have raised £2675 so far for our chosen charity Refuge, who help women and children escape domestic violence. We’re trying to reach £10K. Pretty please, during these next few weeks, while we’re training harder than we ever have and fighting through our exhaustion, please donate any penny you can – it really helps to keep us motivated.

Here we go, kicking off the first Bangs Goes Rap of 2011 – I’m taking it in a new direction with this one. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Do I stick with hardcore or smooth it out? Decisions, decisions.

This kid is from Brooklyn (the lovely @F_Uitlist’s son) and he shakes his angry fist at you, so when he tells you to do something, you better do it and right now, he’s telling you to support Team Bangs on the Run, 20 ladies running the Paris Half Marathon in aid of Refuge (helping women and children escape domestic violence).
To donate, go to www.justgiving.com/teambangsontherun – we appreciate every single penny and message of support.

Well, for someone who started out hating running, I’ve become pretty hardcore – I run in the snow and everything. On Sunday I went for a six mile run in not ideal conditions, but I felt great. In case you didn’t already know (and if you don’t, are you hiding under a rock or something? I mean, seriously!) myself and 19 of my Twitter buddies (Team Bangs on the Run) are running the Paris Half Marathon on March 6th 2011 in aid of Refuge, a charity that helps women and children escape domestic violence situations.
We’re aiming to raise £10K and with our hard training and your generosity, we’re sure to get there! Pretty please donate whatever pennies you can spare for our cause - www.justgiving.com/teambangsontherun

Here we go again with another one. This time Bangs Goes Rap aims to make you dance – well, it is the festive season n’ all, many-a-party is happening and you need something to make you groove. Enjoy and as always, leave your comments and suggestions for other raps you would like to see me do.

As you know, myself and 19 of my Twitter buddies are running the Paris Half Marathon on March 6th 2011 in aid of Refuge (a great charity that helps women and children escape domestic violence). I thought I’d post videos of my training over the next few months. I keep it varied, so this is just a short little something I did after work today. Bad hair, leggings, sweat – welcome, my friends, to my ‘zone’. It ain’t pretty.
