President Steve Rifkind is
spearheading an interesting album later this year. Loud will release
an album of Hip-Hop covers by Rock groups.
Groups that are already
confirmed on the project are Fred Durst from Korn, System of a
Down, Incubus, Sugar Ray, 311 and Shootyz Groove. They will cover
Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Big Pun, the Alkoholics and others releases
from the Loud catalog. The Idea came from Rifkind two years ago
when he was mobbed by a bunch of Suburban kids while on vacation
in Florida, simply because he was wearing a Loud T-Shirt. Rifkind,
who also has an interest in aka.com, claims that this will be
his biggest album of the year.
