Rick Ross announced last week that a new mixtape called Rich Forever is on its way with a ton of new music. Today, the bawse himself decided to unveil the official cover artwork for the new project. Hosted by DJ Scream and journalist Shaheem Reid. Ya ready?
French Montana and Waka Flocka dish out their new video for their Lock Out mixtape cut “Hell On Earth 2K11″ featuring Prodigy. If your ready for hell on earth, press play.
We heard last week that Lil’ Kim was looking to get back into the studio with 50 Cent to record new material for her upcoming LP due out in 2012. Here’s photographic evidence the duo are back in the studio together. Kim hooked up with 50 and Floyd Mayweather over the Christmas break to lay down some new bars.
Not exactly sure what they worked on together, but if it sounds anything like “Magic Stick” we’re sure they’re making another chart topper. In related news, Kim should be releasing her holiday EP anyday now, after we received the first promo photo for her return to music.
50 Cent continues to support his latest mixtape The Big 10 with yet another new visual. Here’s the video for the cut “Nah Nah Nah” featuring Tony Yayo. Apparently, Fif is on a mission to conquer all. Press play.
We’re still a bit confused as to the current state of Pill’s relationship with Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group, which he signed to earlier this year. Although he lightly addressed rumors of being dropped from MMG, there’s still a lot up in the air over this guys future career. Pill took to Twitter yesterday to rip into his record label for not properly supporting him.
No TV and No Radio.. U do the math.I bet u can name you favorite artist and the turn on the tv and see the video and hear it on the radio. It’s not rocket science. Radio and TV b4 I had a deal, none after and u ask why Pill ain’t blew all the way up. Artist sign deals, label doesnt do shit for them or don’t even know to work the artist. time wasted..
Ask Wiz Khalifa what Warner Bros did for him. I’ll wait.. dropped em. Atlantic signed em put em on TV and Radio and he sky rocketed. Mind you, whn I signed I had one of the biggest records in 09′ “Trap Goin Ham” never touched TV never touched radio. Now go back and do your research and see what unsigned artist was neck n neck with Drake’s So Far Gone in 09′. Pill 4180: The Prescription.
If I remember tht list correctly. It was Nicki Minaj, Drake, Pill, Wayne, Jeezy. Nw what the hell ws a new cumber like me doin on that list? Because IM DOPE!! That’s why, u ain’t gotta believe it but I know it and won’t ever stop until I get that spot I deserve. Peace. Thanx.Top 10 freshman cover of the New Times, unsigned hype MTV fire starter cover Creative Loafing, German magazine’s, French radio, Jimmy kimmel. Did a movie with Evan Ross and Brittany Snow, Had a documentary air at the UN summit in Geneva, Switzerland, Mark Ronson’s album, toured n London, countless shows in the states, Short Films, etc. and that with No TV or radio. Now imagine some push and TV and radio would do
Thoughts? It doesn’t sound good for him in terms of MMG, but then again there may be another label out there ready to scoop him up. The guy does have a point when he discusses all of his achievements without the proper backing. Let’s see how this plays out.
The other day, T.I. let go his latest trailer for his upcoming mixtape, F*ck Da City Up, which drops on New Years Day. Little did we know that TIP had hooked up with Dr. Dre in the studio to work on new music. Here’s more from T.I.:
“Dre was here. He sent for me over to the spot. We really just turned up more than anything else. It was about creating chemistry course we can get together, he got hot beats and I got dope rhymes, so we can always get together and make music
But for people to feel what we’re sayin’ and for it to sound like a party comin’ through your speakers, you gonna have to create some chemistry. So that’s what we spent more time doin’ than anything else; developing that chemistry.”
Drake jetted off to Los Angeles earlier this week to take what looks like a mini vaca before he heads to Vegas New Years Eve for a live performance at Hard Rock Hotel. While grabbing some grub at Saddle Ranch on Sunset Blvd the other night, Drake joined a fan singing Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” during karaoke. Nice how that works when the featured artist is a few tables over.
