West coast rapper Game says his sessions with Dr. Dre are going so great that he's decided to push his album back to next year. In a message posted on his Twitter account Game wrote "Last night at the 'AFTERMATH HEADQUARTERS' was Classic ! Me, Stat Quo & Dre got it in all night.

Kanye West may be going back to his roots creating a classic old school hip hop album. According to G.O.O.D. Music artist Mr. Hudson, Kanye is doing just fine working hard, "He works 24 hours day but I'm not worried for him — he has the right people around him. And Kanye's getting back into rapping. He might make an old-school record on a tape deck, like the Beastie Boys used to do. Just a drum machine, ghetto blaster and a microphone."
November 09th 2009 -- Rap-stress, Mia X, finally returns to the limelight after an over ten year absence!
Mia X, nee' Mia Young, was the very first female emcee inked to Master P's mid-nineties powerhouse imprint, No Limit Records. From 1995 to '98, Mia released three acclaimed solo albums; Good Girl Gone Bad, the gold certified Unlady Like, and her third and final effort, Mama Drama, before graciously bowing out of the rap game altogether.
Unfortunately, during her musical hiatus, Mia suffered several personal setbacks; primarily the unexpected and tragic passing of both her mother and father, as well as the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Suddenly, she was left to care for not only her own children, but also her youngest sister, Ashley, who thanks to Mia's undying love and support, recently graduated from L.S.U. Medical with honors.
Although the self-proclaimed 'Unlady Like Diva' briefly returned in 2006 with "Verbal Assault," a track produced by Donald XL Robertson that appeared on the popular Southern Smoke mix-tape series, and a pair of songs on C-Murder's Screamin' 4 Vengeance in '08, no project ever materialized. Now, that is all about to change!
Mia X' highly anticipated, fourth studio LP, Betty Rocka Locksmith, which she is currently finishing up work on, is being introduced by its first two offerings; the radio ready, "1 Life 1 Love," which she'll be shooting a video for soon, and "Get Da Paper," an ode to eighties Hip-Hop.
Betty Rocka Locksmith is currently scheduled to be released in February 2010.

As of yesterday, i will be doing it LIVE from my home studio Wednesday nights @ 9pm EST or will pre-record if i know i'll be out. Basically, I talk with the fans and play music I'm working on for an hour, and last night had me previewing songs from a variety of upcoming projects, including the new Panacea album! You can click on the bookmarks i made in the gray bar next to the play/pause button to skip all my jibber-jabberin' and hear the actual songs...

Rap's most wanted emcee for the past decade Shyne made his first public words since being released from an upstate New York correctional facility where he served close to a ten year bid. Speaking to students at his one time school in Belize City, Wesley College, Shyne says he no longer glorifies the gangsta lifestyle that landed him in jail and his career in jeopardy.
"In life, you are what you are and this is what I am I don't want to be like Michael Jordan. I want to be like Moses or King David or King Solomon. Those are the guys I aspire to be like. I didn't want to be like the kingpin on my block; I wanted to be like the guy who parted the sea, that's why I chose that name."
The rapper known as Moses says fans shouldn't worry about the direction of his music as it will be as pure as ever
"I make music about life. One of the greatest musicians was Bob Marley. There was nothing misogynistic about him. But his music, he talked about some harsh realities some time. He was tough. I would like to make that type of contribution, that kind of Marvin Gaye contribution, you dig? But at the same time we curse, at the same time life is violent, life is troublesome sometimes — so don't expect my music to be sanitized. I am just going to talk about what's going on in the world."
