During his performance at the NBA All-Star Weekend, Weezy announed that the fifth installment of his legendary Tha Carter album series will be released on May 5th. Stay tuned for more details.
Read below what Justin Nealis of Party Supplies had to say about the project.
“We went out to LA with [Bronson] last month—me, him, Alchemist, and Sean recorded an entire EP of material under the name Jericho,” Nealis said. “Jericho may be a project that we drop, that’s really under-the-table, no one knows about that yet. Jericho may just be like a multi-genre, no label EP that may cross genres from Hip Hop to Electro to ‘80s Pop. We may bridge the gap with that actually, because some of the stuff we recorded for that, one of the songs sounds like a late ‘80s Smokey Robinson record and shit. And then, there’s some Surf Rock on there that sounds like the Beach Boys and Bronson’s rhyming on it. Alchemist made the beat. We rented pianos and keyboards. We rented a Wurlitzer, we rented a bass, we rented a few guitars and shit. We recorded a lot of original material that kind of has a very Electro sound and we’re calling it Jericho.
March 4th is the D-Day for all Rozay fans.
After taking a lengthy road trip with Drake on his Would You Like A Tour? in 2013 and receiving co-signs from the likes of LeBron James and hip hop favorites for her recently released Sail Out EP, Jhené Aiko isn’t getting comfortable anytime soon.
The petite songstress, who has already appeared on Drizzy’s Nothing Was The Same and J. Cole’s Born Sinner, is finalizing her solo debut Souled Out (via Artium/ Def Jam Records) and has finally put a time stamp on her highly anticipated project.
“May 2014. Souled Out,” she tells VIBE, smiling from ear-to-ear, before revealing a very special feature. “I have a song called “Premises” with my daughter Namiko Love. That, right now, is my favorite one.”
This isn’t the first time her 4-year-old daughter has laid down vocals for her momma. Namiko can faintly be heard on the 2011 mixtape that catapulted Jhené’s career, sailing soul(s).
But before the LP drops, the “Stay Ready” singer plans to deliver more eye candy. Watch her discuss pumping out more videos before the album’s release and her Sail Out EP in the full interview above.
