Swizz Beatz Announces New Album, Alicia Keys Remix And More In “The Roundup”

You know what it is….Swizz Beatz is embarking on his next album, tentatively titled Life After the Party. The multi-platinum producer has his hand in a number of projects already, but expects to release the LP in October. In the meantime, the recently separated and pending divorced star has been in the studio with G-Unit, T.I., and Alicia Keys for the remix to the singer’s “Teenage Love” track. “I used the Slick Rick “Teenage Love” on it,” Swizz said. “Then I had your man LL do the old-school [“I Need Love”] flow.” [MTV News]

Ice-T is upset. So he decided to rap about it. The veteran Los Angeles lyricist has Soujla Boy in his sights and said the teen sensation “single-handedly killed hip-hop.” Oddly, he had no comment about 40-plus rappers putting out songs and what effect that has on hip-hop. But the “Law & Order” star is moving forward regardless. He partnered with DJ Cisco to release a new mixtape Urban Legends where Ice tells SB to “man up.” Too $hort, RBX, and Tash of Tha Liks also appear.

Indie hip-hop act Tanya Morgan will join the Hieroglyphics on their “Freshly Dipped Tour.” The 45-date trek kicks off July 11 in California for three dates, and make stops in New Orleans, Virginia Beach, and New York, among many other locations. The group will be supporting The Bridge EP; their next full-length project is set to be released this fall.—XXL staff.
