Last month, Dollah released his new single “I’m A Boss.”  The track samples Meek Mill Ft. Rick Ross “I’m A Boss.” This is the third single off Dollah’s debut mixtape Billion Dollah Rapper. In the past, Dollah released the official visual to his first single “I’m On One” Ft Kases and in August he released “Hey Shawty” Ft. Litey. Dollah is focusing on putting out singles and a few videos before he drops his mixtape. “I am in the studio creating a masterpiece. Once I feel like I am giving my fans my best work; I will put out my mixtape,” says Dollah Tha Rapper. The disc is scheduled for digital download on Black Friday (November 25).

This upcoming weekend, Dollah will be shooting his official visual to “I’m A Boss” at a secret location in New York City. For security reasons, we will NOT confirm the exact date or location for the video shoot.

Don Bleek Interviews Juelz Santana: Ju Ju Speaks On His Upcoming Solo LP, Collaborative Disc With Lil Wayne & DI3

I caught up with Juelz Santana at the Harlem Diplomats concert at the Best Buy Theatre, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy World Tour stop in NYC. Elz talked about his upcoming LP, entitled Born to Lose, Built to Win (which is dropping next year), his long-awaited I Can’t Feel My Face collaborative disc with Lil Wayne and Dipset’s Diplomatic Immunity 3 reunion album. Elz mentioned that he would like to work with Kanye West and Eminem. Elz is also featured in Video Girl, an upcoming movie with Meagan Good.

When are you dropping your upcoming album Born to Lose, Built to Win?

I’m dropping that the beginning of next year. I have a couple of other projects that I’m going put out before I drop that. I’m going put out the Reagan Era, which is a mixtape. People will definitely be satisfied with that.

How many songs have you recorded so far for your upcoming album?

I just really tap on it. I wouldn’t even say a certain amount. I got a bunch of things recorded, which will probably not even make the album because I’m going put out so much music before my album. I’m probably going have a whole new album depending on that time because I’m going drop my mixtape, me and Wayne going collabo on some records than I’m going drop another mixtape. I’m not going hold back on the people, I’m going give them my best material because I feel like they deserve that and I’m going keep on working.

Who are some of the artists and producers you would like to work with on your upcoming album?

Definitely my man Toomp, he’s one of the producers I plan on working with. We actually had a session before and I think it worked out great. I like these up and coming producers too. It’s always the one’s you hardly expect just like the artists and they are talented. I definitely want to work with Kanye. I have him do the beat and the feature on the song. That way we knock out two birds with one stone. I always wanted to work with Eminem, hopefully I get that feature done on my album, maybe get Eminem to produce a record on the album. He’s a real dope producer. I like his train of thought when it comes to approaching music.

Will Cam’ron and Jim being on your album?

Definitely!

Back in the summer, I spoke to your publicist Lynn Hobson and she told me that you were working with Sha Money XL over at Def Jam.

He and I are creating a master plan for my project. Just to make sure everything is set and happening in a timely fashion and things are being done. We’re taking the right steps to get me to where I need to be. Everybody knows where I’m supposed to be, on a throne or right there.

Harlem’s Dipset Shuts Down The City, With Concert In Times Squares

Over this past weekend, I attended the Harlem Diplomats (Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey), with special guests Vado and ASAP Rock concert at the Best Buy Theatre in Times Square, for the last show of Red Bull Music Academy’s Five Out Of Five tour of New York City’s five boroughs. The Harlem natives, who performed with a live band, opened-up the show a little after 9pm. Performing “What’s Really Good” and other tracks off their 2003’s certified gold album “Diplomatic Immunity.” They rocked the stage for a jammed pack wall-to-wall crowd for almost two hours.


After Dipset performed as a group, they all did their solo sets. Jim Jones kicked off his solo set, by performing some of his hits such as “Certified Gangsta,” “Baby Girl” “G’s Up,” and “Harlem.” During the middle of his set, Jones kept it all the way Harlem, by bringing out up & coming rapper ASAP Rocky, who performed his hit “Peso.” Jones closed his set with “Perfect Day.”

After Jones exited the stage, Juelz Santana opened-up his set by performing some of his biggest hits including “Shotta,” “Oh Yes,” “Mic Check,” “Back To The Crib,” “There It Go (The Whistle Song)” and “Clock Work.” Santana closed out his set with “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” (minus Lloyd Banks).

Cam’ron picked up where Juelz Santana left off. Cam kicked off his solo set by running through some of his hits such as “Down and Out,” “Wet Wipes,” and “I Used To Get It in Ohio.” During the middle of his set, Cam brought out fellow U.N. member Vado. The duo performed “Speakin In Tongues,” “We All Up In Here” and “Hey Muma.” The Harlem Diplomats all came back to the stage for one final performance with all of them together, before ending the show. The Harlemites closed out the show with “Salute” and “848.” Diplomatics  Immunity 3, coming soon.
