Quick News on Kanye West, Hurricane Chris and DJ Envy

kanye-west1.jpgDef Jam Records has confirmed that Kanye West’s highly anticipated third album, Graduation, will be released on September 11 despite Internet rumors the company was pushing the release date back in order to avoid dropping on the same date as 50 Cent’s new LP, Curtis. With two singles off Graduation already in heavy rotation across the country — “Stronger” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” — ‘Ye will release his third single, “Good Life,” which features T-Pain, later this year.

Shreveport, La. native, Hurricane Chris, has officially scored a platinum ringtone with his mega-hit, “A Bay Bay.” The song has claimed the No. 2 position on Billboard’s Mastertone chart for six straight weeks and has sold over 1.2 million copies. “Ay Bay Bay,” is the lead single off Hurricane Chris’ debut album, 51/50 Ratchet, which will be released this fall on J/Polo Grounds Music. The LP is being executive produced by producer Mr. Collipark, who has scored hits for the likes of the Ying Yang Twins, Soulja Boy, David Banner and Bubba Sparxx.

Fans of radio personality and mixtape DJ Envy will soon be able to download the his new mixtape content directly to their cellular phones. The Hot 97 and Sirius Satellite DJ is teaming with mobile content provider Cellfish Media to offer a monthly “Mobile Mixtape” subscription to consumers. The download package will include seven exclusive new singles, daily tips about their favorite artists and exclusive video interviews. According to Envy and Cellfish VP Jonathan Dworkin, the new format will nearly eliminate the ever decreasing waiting period that fans must endure for new music. “Yesterday, kids would have to wait for a mixtape to be pressed up and distributed; today, they have to run home to their computers and search for it; tomorrow, the instant something is blowing up, it shows up in your pocket,” Dworkin said. “Yesterday is over.”

  • EReal: Presents Lissssstteeennn

    Its about Kanye, yet all you talk about is 50. *SMH*

    I get Money is fuckin FIRE, that shits burinin up the airwaves. Ayo Tech is for all them 3 mill white people that bought JTs album this year. Yall dont recognize moves. You’re tellin me that “Stronger” is your shit? That gay techno shit “I need you right now” blah. Cant tell me isnt exactly FIRE anyway. Got a good beat and a catchy hook. His verses got me sleepin. Kanye’s shit isnt hapennin either, but yall keep 50s dick on your brain. *SMH* Base you opinion on MUSIC, you dont KNOW this cat, wtf!

    Do yall listen to music? Or just skim thru it? Maybe the lyrics are too above your head, or better yet, you dont WANT to like it, because its a certin persons music. *SMH* Bitchmades.

    I guess ppl forget, that hip hop is not all about record sales. We doing this with without a record contract. I salute Kanye because he represent real hip hop

  • FUCK 50, KANYE FTW

    Fuck 50 cent and hurricane boy, don’t even shit compare them to Kanye. Just because he ain’t movin much today doesn’t mean he’s out, fuck 50, his pussyass lyrics are all the same. And the fact he hired some hobo to stab him 90 times in the ear with a plastic butter knife is…just 50 cent. 50 cents also a stupidass name, he gets like 10 people to photoshop some abs for him to make him look cool. and his hip hop theory is bullshit, just cause you got more money don’t mean your a better rapper. so basically, if Bill Gates were to be a rapper now, he’d technically be going multi-platinum? yea right fuckers

    and hurricane boy sucks ball too, dont even call his music hip hop, all he says is a bay bay a bay bay 1000 times n what he gets #7 on the music charts. fuckin untalentless pussy.
