The Streets star MIKE SKINNER has been forced to issue an apology to his furious right-hand man MORGAN 'DA BASSMAN' NICHOLLS, after forgetting to credit his efforts on the band's last album. The rapper collaborated closely with Nicholls on A GRAND DON'T COME FOR FREE but neglected to include his name on the 2004 hit record's cover. To avoid any animosity Skinner has inserted a lengthy explanation on his forthcoming album THE HARDEST WAY TO MAKE AN EASY LIVING. It reads, "We at The Streets would like to state that Morgan 'Da Bassman' Nicholls contributed greatly to A Grand Don't Come For Free and he worked with passion and truth. "We sincerely apologise for any offence caused."
