He Changed His Mind: Swizz Beatz Will No Longer Be Releasing ‘Haute Living’ As An Album

Rap producer Swizz Beatz was set to release Haute Living as a full-length album, but he recently changed his minds. During a recent interview with MTV News,Swizzy clarified that Haute Living will not be an album; it’s a collection of songs. Each single will be release on separate dates; over an extended period of time.

Let me clarify: Haute Living is still coming, but as far as releasing all on one day, I’m not doing that no more,” he said. “I want to just drop singles from Haute Living instead of ‘I’m coming on September 13.’ I’m like, ‘You know what? Let me make every song an event, instead of just that one day being an event.’

Swizzy wants to change the mind-set instead of doing things the traditional way.

I want to change the whole mind-set of the way I do things as an album, but Haute Living is definitely coming. I’m just tired of doing things traditional. My whole concept of life is just to do things nontraditional, making new rules. Sky’s not the limit — it’s just a view.”

Official Visual: Tyga Ft. Chris Brown “Snapback Back”

The official visual to Tyga’s track “Snapback Back” Ft. Chris Brown just hit the net. In the Alex Nazari directed clip, the two samples Meek Millz and Rick Ross “Tupac Back.” The track is off Tyga’s upcoming mixtape Well Done 2. I think this track is dope and I respect Tyga’s artistry. He’s the new breed of our generation of Hip-Hop. I respect Tyga because he came into this industry with a style of his own and wasn’t trying to be apart of what was already out. Tyga is doing a great job at branding himself. Watch the visual below:

Tyga’s mew album Careless World will be out later this year.
