Jayo Felony Changes Album Name

After

all the controversy surrounding Jayo

Felony and his beef with Snoop Dogg and the

Dogg Pound, Jayo has dropped the title "Crip Hop"

for his new album and will go with Trip Hop instead.The

album will drop on his own Loco Records and will feature

appearances from Ja Rule, E-40 and more. At this stage

it looks as though ‘Trip Hop’ will drop on October 23rd.

Jayo caused

a stir earlier this year. His song "True’d Up,"

was a diss to Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg. "Jay-Z snitched

to [Def Jam head Lyor Cohen] and tried to keep the song

from being put out,” Jayo told MTV. “We got calls from

Lyor and everybody about not putting this record out.

I feel like this: If we’re on the streets, keep it on

the streets. Don’t go to the higher-ups.”

While shooting

his video for True’s Up, which appeared on the Jimmy "Haitian

Jack" Henchman compilation, Bulletproof Love in Brooklyn,

gunfire rang out. Plainclothes officers on patrol near

the Van Dyke Houses saw men standing in the street firing

handguns in the air and someone filming them. Four men

were subsequently arrested: Kenneth James, 22, Jamie Evans,

25, Steve Brockett (AKA JFK), 23 and 19-year-old Jermaine

Cobbs.

Police could

not get the footage because an unidentified artist boarded

a flight to Los Angeles early Friday (April 27th) with

the film. A nearby surveillance camera owned by the Housing

Authority reportedly captured some of the shooting.
