Guns don't kill rappers Big Brother does

Sad news from Wales. Looks like Maggot's appearance on 'Celebrity Big Brother' was not enough to save the Welsh rappers Goldie Lookin' Chain from the chop. The band have been dropped by their record label Atlantic after failing to get any sales uplift from the show.

Unlike Preston, whose band The Ordinary Boys did fabulously well out of the show with their single 'Boys Will Be Boys' shooting up the charts and sales of their album 'Brassbound' really taking off, Goldie Lookin' Chain have not fared so well.

The rappers best known for their hit 'Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do' are not giving up. The 20-strong outfit are forming their own label Gold Dust and the band's first single on Gold Dust will be called 'Maggot at Midnight'.

"We now have artistic freedom to do what we want. We won’t be working under any restraints and won’t have to tone down the act," the band said.

If only Maggot had pulled Chantelle, then he could be riding the wave of publicity and being snapped with the blonde Paris Hilton look alike at every opportunity. Wait, maybe getting dropped wasn't so bad after all.
