Recession? What recession? Soulja Boy celebrated his 21 st birthday this week and purchased a $55 million private jet. According to TMZ, the plane costs $35 million, but SB put $20 million to get it tricked out. He’s also reportedly spending 300 racks for a party tonight in Miami. Surely, Diamond isn’t going anywhere this time around.
It looks like Game is gonna drop a DJ Skee-hosted mixtape on August 1. Might be dope, but it’s got such a long name! Oh well. Below is the trailer for the ‘tape.
Self-proclaimed “Rappa-Ternt-Sanger” T-Pain has been on the inside of the Young Money confines and worked with the crew’s captain Lil Wayne on Weezy’s upcoming Tha Carter IV and the Florida native even helped out on the project as well. In an interview with Billboard Wednesday (July 20), T-Pain chatted up his upcoming albumRevolveR, cutting loose his favored vocal plug-in Auto-Tune and going into detail about his new audio software dubbed “The T-Pain Effect.”
Mr. Teddy Pender also revealed he’s been working alongside YMCMB cash cow Lil Wayne on an answer track to Weezy’s “How To Love single and gave the rapper’s ninth album some high praise. “I think it’s gonna be the outro,” T-Pain shares. “Without knowing it, Wayne wrote a song called ‘How To Love’ and I wrote him a song called ‘How To Hate;’ we were in the same studio, but completely across the parking lot from each other and writing the songs at the same time. It was weird. I think he’s starting out his album with ‘How To Love’ and ending it with ‘How To Hate.’ “
T-Pain also gushed over Tha Carter IV, giving it a glowing endorsement. “I’ve heard some of (‘Tha Carter IV‘) and I gotta tell ya, Wayne has gone pretty crazy with his music — crazy in a good way. This is gonna be an awesome album,” said T-Pain.
Speaking of albums, Tallahassee Pain’s upcoming fourth album will be released late September or early October in what appears to be a pretty stacked fourth quarter for music. Guests on RevolveR include Chris Brown, Pitbull, Ke$ha and Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes.
Flo Rida is in the middle of a paternity war — even though the rapper claims he has scientific PROOF he’s NOT the baby daddy.
Mr. Rida is accused of fathering a son with a woman named Gloria Halloway. The kid was born earlier this year.
Flo’s attorney, Sandy Becher, tells TMZ … the rapper took a paternity test last month that ruled him out as the boy’s father … but he used a pseudonym to protect his identity.
But Halloway isn’t buying it — claiming she has yet to see a document with Flo’s REAL NAME on it … and her lawyer, Damon McDougal, tells us, “There is absolutely nothing to indicate that [Flo Rida] was sampled.”
McDougal adds, “I really do feel that the only way we are going to get a reliable paternity test is going to be within the confines of some sort of court order.”
Cardo on the beat and with this one the team has officially knocked off 5 for 5 tracks from a project that we don’t even have a name for! Know what’d be cool? If somebody actually got off their asses, interviewed one of these cats and found out what the fugg’s going on with all these releases.
Second leak from Gucci and Future, with that FreeBricks project hosted by DJ Scream coming soon.
New joint from Alley produced by Big Fruit, to be featured on Definition Of Fuck Shit 2 dropping July 26th.
The making of Watch The Throne, August 2nd can’t get here fast enough!
