Eminem Plans to Re-Release "Relapse", 50 Cent First Week Sales


From Udub News:

Relapse: Refill 

Interscope Records plan to profit off an additional Eminem album before the year closes out one way or another. Em's label plan to re-release the lukewarm "Relapse" album next month, December 22nd just in time for Christmas. The re-jiggered "Relapse" album will feature seven brand new tracks. There's been no word if seven of those new tracks features the records that was due to pop up on a "Relapse 2" album mostly produced by Just Blaze. Just a few months ago MTV released their annual "Hottest MCs In The Game" project that omitted the highly praised rapper from the top ten.

Beginning Of The End For 50 Cent?

Or is this a sign of the times. Queens rapper and Soundscan bully 50 Cent's latest album "Before I Self Destruct" is expected to make a different type of splash on next week’s Billboards charts in a strong contrast from his previous efforts. According to hits daily double Fif's last contractual album on Interscope Records will move a staggering 150-160 copies in it's first week on shelves. 50 suffered a major setback when the album was leaked almost a month early forcing the rappers label to move the release date up with a unique offering: a digital release on iTunes followed by the albums full release one week later accompanied by the movie "Before I Self Destruct."

Black Sheep to Release The Prelude + Forever LuvLee Video


From Audible Treats:

Black Sheep To Release From The Black Pool Of Genius: The Prelude + "Forever LuvLee" Video      11.19.2009
Dres Of Black Sheep Drops EP In Advance of Spring 2010 Full-Length


(November 19, 2009- Brooklyn, NY) Dres, of the legendary Queens outfit Black Sheep is proud to announce the first of two brand new Black Sheep projects to be released in the next several months. The Native Tongues veteran is gearing up for his first full length since 2006, the forthcoming From The Black Pool Of Genius. Before the album is released in Spring 2010, Dres has decided to whet Black Sheep fans' appetites with From The Black Pool of Genius: The Prelude, a five song EP to be released on December 1st, 2009.

The Prelude finds Dres showcasing his extraordinary skills without appearing to break a sweat. He manages to sound effortless while walking a lyrical tightrope- wielding his uniquely bouncy flow while addressing serious, deeply thought-out issues. Dres, one of the most experienced and insightful voices in hip-hop today, is using the album as a means of communicating what he believes the meaning of hip-hop truly is. "I once heard a poet say that 'hip hop backward is 'pih poh (people)'- the way I see it, many artists are a lot more hip-hop than they ever realized. I would dare to say that any artist over time, regardless of genre, that makes music for the 'pih poh'... is hip-hop." This type of inclusive, outside the box thinking is a hallmark of Black Sheep's music and is very much on display on From The Black Pool of Genius.

As for the title of the album, Dres explains that, "'Black Pool' doesn’t refer to black people. It refers to the color black's unique ability to absorb light. This deep, vast pool of soul, of artistic insight; although it's not always understood, the light it reflects back to the 'pih-poh' is necessary."

Watch out for From The Black Pool of Genius: The Prelude on December 1st, and From The Black Pool of Genius full length in Spring 2010.

"Forever Luvlee": http://media.audibletreats.com/Black_Sheep-Forever_LuvLee.mp3 .

The Background:

It all began with a thundering baseline and an unmistakably classic phrase - "this or that." One of the most widely recognized songs in rap music history, the 1991 classic "The Choice is Yours" was hailed by VH1 in 2008 as one of the best rap songs of all time. The highly respected Queens emcee Dres, along with DJing partner-in-crime William "Mista Lawnge" McLean took the music industry by storm in the early 1990's as part of the groundbreaking collective Native Tongues. Penning such Billboard standouts as "Flavor of the Month" and "Strobelight Honey" for the duo's platinum-selling debut album A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing in 1992, Dres would continue to crank out the hits on the group's second release, Non Fiction. After a brief reunion with Mister Lawnge in 2000, Dres again set his sights on recording. He released the innovative online-only album 8WM/Novakane in 2007. Now he's back in the studio, writing the next chapter of his storied career. Dres' highly anticipated new project, From the Black Pool of Genius, out Spring 2010, promises to pair thought-provoking lyrics with astounding beats constructed by a corps of new and established beatmakers. They include Bean One, Showbiz, Tough Junkie, P. Locke, Urban Soul Music Group, and Willie Evans. He's also got an impressive line-up of guest stars, including De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Rhymefest, AZ, and Tough Junkie, among others. Leading up to the release of his next full-length, Black Sheep will be releasing a precursor EP, From The Black Pool Of Genius: The Prelude, available December 1st.

50 Cent to Perform in NYC for MySpace Music's 50th "Release" Show


From Tito Belis:

MYSPACE MUSIC'S "THE RELEASE" CELEBRATES 50TH CONCERT WITH SPECIAL PERFORMANCE BY 50 CENT IN NEW YORK CITY

To celebrate the momentous 50th installment of "THE RELEASE," MySpace Music will be hosting a special performance by the one-and-only 50 Cent on Monday, November 23 at Highline Ballroom in New York City in conjunction with Hot 97. This special concert for "THE RELEASE" will be a performance to celebrate the release of 50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct, an album that debuted #1 on iTunes. Doors for the 21+ show will open at 8 p.m. and entry can be obtained by sending an RSVP to hiphoptix@myspacemusic.com only.

For Before I Self Destruct, 50 Cent's fourth full-length album, he returned to working closely with Dr. Dre and Eminem as he did on Get Rich Or Die Tryin', his first official album. With Dr. Dre and Eminem producing and guesting, Before I Self Destruct is darker and harder than 2007's Curtis, as shown by the grimy single and video for "OK, You're Right" (produced by Dr. Dre), which was released earlier this year. In early September, 50 released the hit single "Baby By Me" produced by Polow da Don (Fergie, T.I., Ludacris). Before I Self Destruct continues 50 Cent's phenomenal rise from street culture hero to pop culture icon. For more information, tour updates and news, please visit 50 Cent's official MySpace Music profile: http://www.myspace.com/50cent .

Obie Trice and MoSS Team Up For Special Reserve LP


From Clockwork Music 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Obie Trice And MoSS Form New Dynamic Duo & Team Up For Special Reserve LP

SPECIAL RESERVE TO BE RELEASED ON 12-15-09

Returning with his first LP since his departure from Shady Records (where he was one of the label’s top selling artists), Obie Trice readies a new street LP, Special Reserve, which finds him collaborating solely with rising producer MoSS.

With a very strong fanbase, a strong presence on commercial radio and having sold in excess of 1.5 million albums to date (including the certified Platinum Cheers), Special Reserve is a departure from Obie’s typical sound, as a wide range of gritty audio mosaics are provided by MoSS, as he continues to not only raise his profile, but the bar he’s set from his previous work with Raekwon, Ghostface, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, AZ, Sean Price, Slum Village, Havoc, Kool G Rap, KRS-One/Buckshot etc. MoSS is also the first producer signed to the legendary DJ Premier’s “Works of Mart” production company.

Obie Trice's Special Reserve will be released on 12-15-09.

Tracklisting and credits for Obie Trice Special Reserve:

1.) Welcome

2.) Got Hungry

3.) You’ve Been Slain

4.) On & On

5.) I Am

6.) 4 Stories

7.) Roughnecks f/Deuce Wonder

8.) Cool Cat

9.) What You Want

Neosonic - Damu the Fudgemunk presents: "The Kilawatt V1"


From K-Murdock:

The homie Damu is set to release a new EP next week on the London-based label, Kilawatt Music.  This project, aptly titled "Kilawatt V1", is extra special because it was a Panacea-affair, featuring Raw Poetic on both the vocal tracks and yours truly handling its' mastering.  The EP also features some instrumenta-lude tracks and will be available in both vinyl and digital formats, however, the digi version will actually contain less tracks so the wax is definitely the move!  You can go HERE to download some snippets and preview the project, and please make sure to support when it drops on November 23rd!  AND... since I'm in a Damu state-of-mind, make sure you also cop the "Travel At Your Own Pace" Instros from his group Y Society.
