Tha-One Icon: Mary Quant’s Mini Skirt

By Natasha Coombes-Liddle / Tha-One. Icon Writer God bless Mary Quant, without her we wouldn’t have our favourite item of clothing the mini skirt.

Tha-Hip-Hop Remixes

By Shams Albadri / Tha-One. Music writer   R-R-R-Reemix. 1.  Common –“Chi-City (Hard For The Heart – Urban Noize Remix) ft. Duffy” You put a darling voice like Duffy’s on a track that reps the origins of Chi-Town, and you have a “messiah” like track. This is by far one of the best and most […]

Tha-One Icon: Reality TV

By Natasha Coombes-Liddle / Tha-One.
