Lily Allen, "Air Balloon"

Are we still mad at Lily Allen for that video? I mean, surely someone else to be mad at has come along by this point, right? The Lily Allen thing was, when, last year? Quit living in the past.

The new single from the British MC Professor Green, who just happens to be a veteran of Knifecrime Island's brutality, is the self-referentially titled "Just Be Good To Green."
