Just Like I Reported: Queens Rap Duo Mobb Deeps Inks Distribution Deal With Sony

Earlier in the summer, I revealed that Queens rap duo Mobb Deep (Prodigy and Havoc) were in the process of signing a new deal for their label Infamous Records. At that time of posting, I was not able to say the name of the label because the deal was still being finalized. However, I did hinted that it will be a label that Mobb Deep was signed to in the past. Since the deal is confirmed and the news is out there, I will say that Mobb Deep have signed their Infamous Records with RED Distribution, which is the independent distribution system of Sony Music.

“After almost 20 years in this industry, it was inevitable for us to take matters into our own hands. We feel that RED is the perfect home for our brand,” Prodigy said in a press release issued to MTV News. “We know who our fans are and what they want from Mobb Deep. We’re excited to take a new step in our career,” Havoc added.

President of RED Distribution Bob Morelli said, “Mobb Deep is an iconic act, having been on the cutting edge of music and social commentary for years. We are happy and excited to distribute the next chapter in their musical career.”

At the age of 18,  Mobb Deep released their debut album Juvenile Hell, which was led by the single “Peer Pressure.” The album didn’t reached mainstream success but that didn’t stop them from making dope music. In 1995, Mobb Deep released The Infamous, which was their first successful album. It debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200, and number three on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart.

Mobb Deep last album Blood Money was released back in 2006. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 with 106,000 copies sold. Prodigy and Mobb Deep is in the studio working on their new album. The disc will feature production from Havoc, Alchemist, Sid Roams, DJ Premier, MTK, Cardiak and J.U.S.T.I.C.E League. Also, there is a rumored collaboration album between Nas & Mobb Deep.

As of press, Mobb Deep upcoming album does not have a release date.

Her Body Is Like Whoa: Mya Spotted Partying In ATL & Her A** Is…

R&B singer Mya was spotted partying in Atlanta last weekend. Her body is thicker than a snicker. She was wearing those white leggings. The D.C. native is currently in the studio working on her new album. This past April, Mya released her sixth studio album, entitled K.I.S.S. The disc debuted at number sixty-one on Japan’s Billboard Top Albums Chart and at number seventy-two on Japan’s Oricon Albums Chart. In the states, Mya hasn’t reached superstardom and I doubt if she does. Not in this Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé world.

BREAKING NEWS: T.I. Sent Back To Prison A Day After He Was Released Over A Luxury Tour Bus & Reality Show

This past Wednesday (August 31), I reported that rapper T.I. was released from prison after serving an 11-month sentence for a parole violation after an L.A. drug arrest. He was immediately sent to a Halfway in Georgia. Yesterday Thursday (September 1), stories published on the Interweb, stating that T.I. was moved to the federal Penitentiary in Atlanta. T.I.’s attorney, Steve Sadow, told The Associated Press late Thursday that federal officials moved T.I. because of an issue involving his transportation to Atlanta. He arrived to Atlanta from a prison in Arkansas in a million dollar tour bus. I’m assuming T.I. was supposed to arrive in a prison car.

According to TMZ.com, “T.I. will not be allowed to tape his new VH1 reality show inside the walls of the halfway house where he’s serving the remainder of his sentence,” a rep for the facility tells TMZ.

TMZ added, “Cameras were rolling from the minute T.I. was released from an Arkansas prison Wednesday, capturing his journey from AR to the Dismas Charities halfway house in Atlanta.”

I’ am also hearing that the Feds did not know anything about T.I. filming a reality show with VH1. It really didn’t make any sense for VH1 to put out a press release about T.I. filming a reality show before he was even back in ATL. Smh!

Sandra Rose is reporting, According to the bureau of prisons website, T.I. is incarcerated at the U.S. federal prison in Atlanta and his new release date is September 29. So it looks like he will do all of his halfway house time locked up.
