In it’s tenth running year, Rock the Bells looks to celebrate a decade of music with one of the most epic lineups of the summer. Highlights include Kendrick Lamar, Bone Thugs, Jurassic 5, and the entire Wu-Tang Clan. Not to mention what looks to be the next virtual hologram rap performance from ODB and Eazy-E. The internet almost broke after the Tupac hologram from last year’s Coachella, only time will tell what’s in store for Rock The Bells 2013!
Fabo came thru to the 106 & Park studio to chop it up and after some BS he actually drops onto the world that Loso’s Way 2 is scheduled to drop June 18th and we can expect features from Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, and of course Future. Definitely keep an eye out for some tracks off of that leading up to the Summer. Loso back!
J. Cole took to ustream last night for an announcement that came in video format. The video of course revealed what all Cole fans have been waiting for, the announcement of his sophomore LP, Born Sinner, which is now slated to drop January 28th of next year. After a classic like Cole World: A Sideline Story, it will be exciting to hear the new body of work that J. Cole has in store for his fans this time.

Well the title of this post really says it all here. Peter Rosenberg takes a call from hip hop mogul, legend, God, Eminem who says he has talked with the dudes of Slaughterhouse and they will be performing at the 2012 Summer Jam at Met Life stadium. Em also takes a quick moment to say that he is finishing up Slaughterhouse’s debut album Welcome to: Our House and is in the beginning stages of recording his new solo album. The thought of a new solo Em record is always enough to get me excited.
One of the best promoters of all time is back to promote Khaled’s newest colossal album of the summer. Everything about this album has more of a feel of a film than an album. That’s usually always the case when dealing with WTB, MMG, YMCMB.
Rick Ross’ new album, God Forgives, I Don’t is set to drop July 31st and we now have the newest single off that and this one is for the ladies and Rozay recruited R&B legend Usher Raymond for this seductive track.
In a recent interview with Vegas’ own Bootleg Kev J. Cole discussed a bunch of topics including a joint album with big time up & comer Kendrick Lamar. This will be a great joint album with two of the best young emcees out today. Listen to the interview below.
Plenty of hip hop heads were in attendance in NYC yesterday afternoon for the MMG press conference. Many were asking, “why a press conference?” Just like everything MMG does, it has a big time feel. The videos on YouTube look more like mini-movies and trailers, album releases are on par with movie premiers, and it only seemed appropriate to dish out a mass amount of news at a press conference. The names at this press conference certainly are among the wealthiest in hip-hop, with Ross, Diddy, and Swizz Beatz on stage at the same time before they are joined by Wale, Meek Mill, and French Montana. Stalley was absent due to his current tour overseas in Europe.
The pinnacle of the press conference certainly came with the announcement of Maybach Music’s newest signee Omarion (or his new alias, Maybach O). Omarion can certainly bring the smooth R&B feel to MMG’s music to bring them to a new level. Rick Ross also announced the release date for his highly anticipated, highly delayed, new album God Forgives, I Don’t. This monumental album has officially been set to drop July 31st of this summer. This should be a huge album and I wouldn’t be surprised of another delay, but usually the setting of a date means the songs are recorded and done minus the legality bullshit. French Montana also made a late appearance announcing his debut album, Excuse My French, will be dropping July 17th and will be executively produced by both Rozay and Diddy.
