The rap collective return to Newport - and they let everyone know they're around...

Goldie Lookin Chain made a chaotic homecoming last night (August 16) in NEWPORT.

The hip-hop collective signed copies of their new single ‘Guns Don’t Kill People, Rappers Do’ – out yesterday – at the town’s HMV store, and the signing was typically colourful.

The eight members present were all asked to sign girls’ cleavage, and when it was over, the usually-untouched buffet and booze which the store lays on was all taken away by the Goldie Lookin Chain, possibly suffering from munchies.

Then, escorted out of the store via the bins, Maggot found a discarded full-size wipe-clean vinyl poster of Charlotte Church, which he pledged they would take on tour to “use and abuse”.
