On "King's Scribe" he drops some gems in what he calls a letter from a leader to the people. He gives insight on the responsibilities of one who has been blessed with a gift. Stay tuned for updates on the new mixtape "Hear Me, Feel Me" out December 2010.

CL Smooth - "The Emancipation of Corey Penn"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30th 2010

RETURN OF THE MECCA DON!

October 30th 2010 -- Nearly fours years removed from that of his super-solid, yet commercially overlooked debut solo outing, American Me, New Rochelle, New York's very own prodigal son, Corey "CL Smooth" Penn, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore follow-up, the aptly titled, The Emancipation of Corey Penn.

Fresh on the heels of his 2007 American Me companion piece, The Outsider, a collection of exclusive remixes, brand new tracks, as well as "live" recordings, the poetical half of the seminal "Money Earnin' Mount Vernon" rap duo, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, has been pouring his blood, sweat and tears into this upcoming second solo effort.

As a collective, Pete Rock & CL Smooth released three projects All Souled Out (EP) in '91, the critically acclaimed Mecca and the Soul Brother almost a year-to-the-day later, followed by their final group offering, The Main Ingredient, in November 1994.

With an extensive catalog chocked-full of some of Hip-Hop's most important, i.e. classic, records; "The Creator (Remix)," "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," "Straighten It Out," "Lots of Lovin'," "One In a Million," "Take You There," "I Got A Love" and "Searching," Pete Rock & CL Smooth, both together and alone, have continually managed to blaze major trails every step of the way.

Earlier this month, a deluxe box set of Mecca and the Soul Brother was released, which contains a remastered CD, a disc of remix materials, instrumentals and acapellas, a poster, as well as a detail oriented collector's booklet.

The self-proclaimed "Caramel King" is in the midst of wrapping up work on his forthcoming magnum opus, The Emancipation of Corey Penn, and has also reunited, yet again, with Soul Brother #1, a.k.a. The Chocolate Boy Wonder, for a national tour performing a variety of select dates, with more to be announced shortly.

The Emancipation of Corey Penn
is due out late 4th Quarter/Early 2011 -- Stay tuned...

T.I. Ordered to Report to Federal Prison by November 1st


You do the crime, you do the time - or in this case you do the crime while you're on probation and you serve the time remaining on your sentence. Clifford Harris Jr., better known as T.I., has to report to a low-security federal prison in Forrest City, Arkansas on the orders of U.S. Marshal Beverly Harvard. This is all a result of T.I. being arrested on drug charges in Los Angeles on September 1st, even though the prosecutor there won't pursue the case now that he's going back to jail on the probation violation. Thanks to Billboard.com for this update.
