50 Cent says he has finished recording his new album. While he isn’t completely done with the record, Fiddy says he’s happy with it. “I’m actually, I feel like I’m done with the album,” he said. “I’m going through the mixing process. It may change, a couple songs may not sound as good to me once they’re all the way mixed and I’ll feel like I have to replace it with something. Music, to me, it marks time. A classic is timing. I haven’t made a song that wasn’t up to standard, when you listen to, you say, ‘This is garbage.’ You just have to be in the mood for it, maybe. The timing might’ve been bad during the release for some of the actual songs but it’s not necessarily a record that you’re saying, ‘I can’t listen to this. What is this? Turn it off.’” (Via HipHopDX)
Although it took Cool Kids far too long to release their debut album, When Fish Ride Bicycles, one-half of the duo is set to release his second solo album this year. Mikey Rocks dropped his first solo LP, The Rocks Report, earlier this year and next week he’ll follow it up with Premier Politics. On Twitter, the MC wrote: “September 30th Im droppin my first ALBUM fuck a mixtape. Premier Politics vol 1. Imma give it to yall for free tho just know it aint a tape.” (Via Twitter)
Fabolous and Ray J got into a fistfight over the weekend in Las Vegas, where the big fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Victor Ortiz was going down. Right before the rapper was set to hit the stage, he was punched in the face by Brandy’s brother over a diss on Twitter that read: “Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing “One Wish” on the piano had me in tears!!” Fabolous tweeted on Sept. 17th, allegedly the center of Ray J’s beef. “Get it..? Ray J concert in the living room!! *Lil Wayne voice*” According to witnesses, Fab ended up getting the best of Ray J, who was then kicked out of the Palms and arrested. (Via RapFix)Tweet
