Loud Rocks



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.
