Rapper Styles P Talks New Album ‘Time Is Money’

D-Block member Styles

P is gearing up for the release of his long-awaited sophomore album Time

is Money.

According to Styles

P, who is co-CEO of D-Block Records with fellow Lox members Jadakiss and Sheek

Louch, the new album will hit stores in August on D-Block/Interscope.

"They can’t

stop me," Styles told AllHipHop.com. "I want [people] to know what

the kid’s about. The kid’s about making songs like ‘Favorite Drug,’ ‘Can You

Believe It,’ ‘I’m Black.’"

While fans await

the new disc, Styles said he will continue to grind after the album is released

by maintaining his fixture in the mixtape scene.

"Get the next

Ghost mixtape, if you saying a n***a f***ing with me," Styles boasted.

"Tell him he gotta wake up early. The kid’s about putting out five hard

mixtapes a year."

Time is Money

is Style’s follow-up to his 2002 solo debut A Gangster and a Gentleman,

which spawned the hit single "Good Times (I Get High)," produced by

Swizz Beatz.

Other producers

lending their talents to Time is Money include the Alchemist, Lil’ Jon,

Hi-Tek, Havoc, CoCo Channel, and Scott Storch.

"[The album

is] hard! Beginning to end, you can’t deny it," said Syles. "Everybody’s

beats rip! I been here, been with the best of ’em."
