Troy Ave and his comrades hit the studio with The Chocolate Boy Wonder for a session that will appear on the producer’s upcoming album. Here’s a sample of what to expect.
With Premo already in the credits, Joey’s adding another bad ass producer to his resume. Here’s footage of he and Pete Rock recording an upcoming track at the Ecko Studios.
The Chocolate Boy Wonder made his First Take debut today on ESPN. He shared his sports expertise by weighing in on Kobe and the Lakers. After the jump, Stephen A. Smith responds to Bow Wow.
It’s true that Lupe Fiasco’s representative from Atlantic Records contacted me last fall and he did so while I was in mourning over the sudden death of my cousin Heavy D. I gave the representative a conditional “yes” to use T.R.O.Y. for Lupe’s album but only based on the condition that I be involved on the project. It’s what I always say when approached by people who want to use that particular song. I was never contacted again. At no point was there any follow up from Atlantic Records. Now, the story gets twisted and it’s being said that I said “yes.” The part about my conditions has been left out to make me seem like I’m a hypocrite. When I heard about the song again, it was done, completed, and playing on the radio…and that was Monday night.
Shout to the Friends&Family for bringing some internal closure to this...all g on this side Pete...Big Chuck whaddup... #MyGodFoRealListen—
