Today sees the release of West Coast producer E-Train's debut album ON SOLID GROUND. Available through all digital retailers today, ON SOLID GROUND boasts features from Talib Kweli, Wordsworth, Keith Murray, The Aztext, Akrobatik and more while displaying the raw talent E-Train exudes in the studio. Teaming up with Bay Area femcee, Holly Saucey for the smash Fiyah Burn, the combination of artist and producer with nothing to lose yet everything to gain comes shining through.

Speaking on the Dexter-esque video its main star says"When I wrote the song Fiyah Burn, I was kind of talking to myself and being an Aries (Fire) I was talking about myself. There are times when you have to laugh at yourself, and say 'I knew better'. Well this song is about that, about just backing up from the current situation (whatever it is, love, money, haters) and if you don't, do not be surprised when you get burnt. When E-train asked me to shoot the video, we had no ideas... the first thing that popped in my head was Dexter(HBO). I have no idea why, maybe it was the contrast with the real message in the song. I know if you fall for the 'trick' and wake up strapped to a table its not ideal, but your mistakes can build you or end you... So I made some adjustment to the 'Dexter' story in my head and we shot it... it was the most fun I’ve had to date shooting a video... and I may take up "serial killing" if music don't work.." Holly Saucy

The April/May and 10th Anniversary issue of men’s lifestyle, fashion and entertainment guide for young men, Complex Magazine, which hits newsstands April 3, includes a cover story about the new Pepsi spokesperson Nicki Minaj.

The Nicki Minaj cover story, photos and video went online today at: http://www.complex.com/music/2012/03/nicki-minaj-10th-anniversary-covers . Justin Bieber is on the opposite cover.

The Complex Nicki Minaj interview and photo shoot include:

           *Video of Nicki’s interview: Nicki Minaj chats about what’s really important to her, the first time she appeared in Complex Magazine and other fun tidbits!

*A hot fashion spread with Nicki.

            *Nicki is a self-made mogul.  In six months she has performed at the Grammys, the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna, will be launching her second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in early 2012, along with a nail polish collection, a Barbie Doll and a MAC cosmetics campaign.

            *The over-the-top performer is actually quite shy.  “I’m the biggest homebody.  I don’t know where that public craziness came from.”  “I hate cameras.”

*She is the brains behind the Nicki Minaj franchise.  “Your telling me that you don’t want control over a brand your creating.  I can’t rock with that theory.”  “I wanted to do what a label cannot do.”
