New York, NY - Cult rap duo Mobb Deep has officially announced the first release on their newly formed Infamous Records imprint. The group has also revealed that the EP Black Cocaine will be a limited release. Black Cocaine will be available in two different packaging's, both of which will be released as a limited edition: a five song EP will be available at major retailers, as well as indie record stores on November 21; a seven song deluxe package will be available only at indie retailers as of November 25th (Black Friday.) Both editions will be a one time print run and will be available until the end of stocks at both major and indie retailers.
The EP is the first studio project by the duo since their last album and it's a prelude to Mobb Deep's official full length release that is expected in the first quarter of 2012. "We wanted to give something to the fans that have been waiting for new Mobb Deep music" says Prodigy. "This limited edition EP is a collectors' item for die hard Mobb Deep fans" adds Havoc.
The tracks "Street Lights", "Dead Man's Shoe" and "Conquer" have been featured on all prominent websites. A viral video for "Dead Man Shoe" will be available by release date while another video for "Conquer" is currently in pre-production.
As part of the upcoming release's promotion campaign, Mobb Deep will be making a few appearances, including an hour long live interview and performance on SiriusFM Shade 45 show "Sway In The Morning" with MTV's Sway Calloway on November 22 at 10:00 am; that same night, the group will perform at NY's BBKings. Mobb Deep will also join the judges' panel on BET's 106 & Park "Freestyle Friday" on November 18. Aol.com will host a week long EP listening party starting on November 28.

Eldorado Red is gearing up his newest album "White Power" which is set to drop Jan 10th on BGM Records. The album will feature Alley Boy, Waka Flocka, Smoke DZA, Bambino Gold, Trill Ent's Lil Phat, Haisha Porter, along with production by Mike Will, Zaytoven & Sonny Digital.
The vintage hip hop sound is still the underlying force behind their music but this project is much more aggressive musically and lyrically. Awon's delivery is firmer and Kameleon ventures into newer territory sample-wise. The result is an album hip hop heads young and old can feel.
The incredible Don Trip stopped by WPRK 91.5fm in Orlando to discuss his new single featuring Cee-Lo, how he linked up with Cool & Dre, what fans can expect from his upcoming album and what producers/artists we can hear on it, and more!
With the November 22nd release date of You And What Army just under a week away, Tanya Morgan is excitedly rolling out the EP's latest single, "We Rollin'," a track that will serve as the final leak before street date. Donwill and Von Pea have chosen to release the FCC clean version of "We Rollin'," so you can share it with your grandma or the neighborhood kids worry-free, but fans need not fret - the full, explicit version will be available with the release of You And What Army.
"It's about the road life, and some of the perks and indulgences that come with it," says Von Pea about the Brizzo-produced song, which was inspired by real events and experiences from past tours. With lyrics like, "And if you see me in your city then take off work/ You got a pretty pair of t——s then take off shirt," the unapologetic and funky jam transports the listener to a post-show party, where Tanya Morgan is found wading in a baby pool full of rumbling piano bass lines, handclaps, and supreme DJ cuts, compliments of DJ Low Key.
