Star Trak signee Rosco P. Coldchain made waves a few years back with features on Clones and Lord Willin’. I personally really liked him and thought he had great potential, but his album got shelved after Aristsa/Interscope merged. He’s now planning his long-awaited album and is supposedly working with DJ Premier for the entire album. In the interview, Rosco said, “Yes people, it’s official, me and Premo are back at it. Premo is the best thing to happen to me since stink on shit and swiss cheese. Ya dig? He might be doing my whole muthafuckin’ album. I’m trying to keep busy.” Rosco is a talented artists, and this would be a huge album if it actually happens. Stay tuned for more info on the Rosco/Premo album. perspective‘s two cents: I’m going to give you a track I like from Rosco. It’s called “Disappointment” and it’s pretty sick. He has some other sick song that i’m now trying to find on the internet somewhere. For now this will do. I think he jacked his name from some show, but I still like it. Rappers need to be more creative with their names. Edit: I still can’t find the song I’m looking for, but here is another Rosco joint. “Disappointment”- Rosco P.

In a post from a few weeks ago, I mentioned Common was filming a video for one of his two new singles, and it turns out it was for “Announcement.” Check out the video below and enjoy the ridiculously heavy green-screenery. I’m still pretty iffy about the whole Common/Pharrell summer-y album, but we’ll see soon enough. Both singles are pretty average so far. Let us know what you think. Common feat.

Just a few years ago, Slim Thug was on the tip of a lot of tongues, and hip-hop fans from all over patiently anticipated his debut album alongside producer and singer extraordinare Pharrell Williams. At the time, Pharrell signed Slim Thug to his Star Trak imprint, under Interscope, and Slim prepped a feature heavy album with several tracks produced by Skateboard P. The album, entitled Already Platinum, did pretty well, and convinced hip-hop fans that Slim Thug was here to stay. However, two years and a pretty steep fall from fame later, Slim Thug is prepping his new album, entitled Boss of All Bosses. The album will be distributed by independent label Koch, instead of Slim Thug’s former home – Star Trak Records. Look for the album, which is due out in October, to see if Slim can stay a boss without Pharrell’s trusty production.
Jay-Z’s been the most consistent hit-maker in hip-hop for over a decade now. Through retirements and comebacks, Jay is still making music and is slated to drop three more albums over the next ten years through Roc Nation. According to Timbaland, he’ll be the sole producer on Jay’s upcoming project, and he believes he can bring Jay an entire album of “Big Pimpin”-esque tracks. Timbo also told MTV, “He wants me to do the whole thing this time around. I’mma make it a classic too. You better believe it.” Though some die-hard fans of Jay’s may be a little hesitant of the collaboration and would rather hear 9th Wonder or Pharrell for an entire album, they can rest assured Jay has always had a great ear for production. The album won’t be released until at least the 4th quarter, according to Timbo, so while you wait check out the throwback video for “Big Pimpin.”
