Swizz Strikes Back With Mixtape:
After scrapping his album, Haute Living, a little while back, Swizz took to Twitter recently to announce that a new, untitled, mixtape is on the way…
“In the studio working on my mix tape :) oh yeah I also cut all the collars of my shirts lmao.”
Yo Gotti Dropped A Dud!
Gotti’s debut album is on pace to sell between 12,000 and 15,000 copies in its first week. In another words, a major letdown for someone with a pretty decent buzz despite the album’s overall negative critical reception.
“IN NEW YORK N JUST FOUND OUT SO MO F*CKD UP SH*T ABOUT DA LABEL!!! #TheIndustryTrynaHoldMeBack. HOW DA F*CK YU EXPECT A N*GGA TO SALE SUM RECORDS WHEN U DONT SHIP NONE????”
Better luck next time Y.G.!
