rapper Lil’ Flip announced that he is no longer signed to Sony Music Group and
has inked a deal with Asylum Records/Warner Music Group.
According to Lil’ Flip’s manager Sandy Lal, the rapper will leave Sony with
the rights to the master recording of his new album, I Need Mine. The
move is the culmination of months of disenchantment between Lil’ Flip and his
I are ecstatic," Lal, told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Our relationship
with Sony has been quite fruitful. I’ve always believed that Flip’s potential
is virtually unlimited, and we’re really eager to take it to the next level.
Being able to walk away with the masters to I Need Mine is an absolute victory."
I Need Mine will feature production by Mannie Fresh and others. The new
CD was pushed back several times, with the latest date being June 27. The album
is Flip’s follow-up to his platinum double-disc set, U Gotta Feel Me.
Asylum is a subsidiary of Warner Music Group, which already houses a roster
of talent that includes Cam’ron, D4L, Mike Jones, Webbie, Scarface and
I Need Mine is slated to hit stores later this year.
