A New Michael Jackson Album is Dropping in May

Monday, March 31st, 2014

On May 13th a new Michael Jackson album will be unveiled to the world. The LP will feature 8 previously unreleased songs by the late legend and it takes it’s name from a once popular 90’s R&B group. No, I’m kidding, it actually takes its name from one of the songs on the album, as has been customary with all of Michael’s releases since Thriller.

The 8 new songs were all produced using existing vocals tracks laid by Michael before his passing in 2009 but have been updated for 2014 under the watchful eye of executive producer L.A. Reid and lead producer Timbaland. Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon and John McClain also contributed their talents. A deluxe edition of Xscape will include the original untouched recordings as they sounded before those guys got their hands on them, so that’s pretty cool.

L.A. Reid Hints at Future Music Label Executive Position

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

It comes as no surprise to those who know how these things work, but earlier today L.A. Reid explained to Angie Martinez that he didn’t resign as head of Island Def Jam to simply judge Simon Cowell’s X-Factor for the rest of his days (he was replaced by Barry Weiss):

Listen, I’m nobody’s fool, I didn’t give up my day job. I just left, I had to leave Universal Music Group and try my hat on someplace else, that we’ll announce, well… we’ll announce that in a little while.

Big Sean on Nas/Shyne’s feelings about Def Jam

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Big Sean appeared on Lip Service and was asked about what has been said about Def Jam and L.A. Reid in the last week or so:

Well, my experiences with L.A. Reid, I’ve had tons of meetings with him recently, and even in my meetings he said ‘Man I’m a guy that’s into hits man, pop,’ you know he says that. He’s straight up, I’m into hits I’m into that money. I’m into these fucking hit songs so no, I don’t think L.A. Reid understands hip-hop in the same way that Nas understands it or Shyne or whoever or Kanye. He understands that muthafuckin money, he understands what a hit is, so you gotta respect him on that. He’s responsible for a lot of big acts. But honestly Def Jam does make a lot of mistakes and I’m signed to Def Jam and I appreciate everything they’ve done for me. I’m happy to be on Def Jam.

Shyne wants off of Def Jam

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010


In an interesting turn of events, Shyne is apparently trying to leave the label that he signed to only 8 months ago and is already considering going to Cash Money Records:

“I’m definitely trying to get with Cash Money but the Def Jam thing is a question mark right now,” Shyne told SOHH. “I’ve been fixing to get up out of there for a while now because [Island Def Jam CEO] L.A. Reid don’t care about hip-hop. The people up there, they don’t know what they’re doing. When you don’t have a strong leader, where you gonna go? … They don’t care about hip-hop music. You give them a hip-hop record with an R&B singer, you “might” have a chance. They don’t care. You got The Roots, Ghostface, Nas, probably the best hip-hop roster you could imagine and they do nothing. L.A. Reid doesn’t want nothing to do with rappers — it’s nothing personal, I don’t have nothing personal with dude but he makes it known he doesn’t care about hip-hop. So I’m really interested in seeing who’s gonna replace him. Because I know he’s been replaced — so I wanna find out who’s gonna take his spot before I decide what I’m gonna do with Def Jam…The music that we make is responsible for pop, R&B, everything that’s jumping right now…”

This is starting to sound a lot like what Nas had to say last week.

He also told SOHH that he’s keeping all the music:

“They gotta care about [what we’ve done] the way Jimmy Iovine cares about that, the way Lyor Cohen cares about that,” Shyne added. “I’m definitely not gonna scrap everything I recorded. I put in so much, I’ve come so far. From the first record I did when I got out to the new records I’ve done while going to all these different countries, I ain’t scrapping nothing. I paid for that. I’m not signed to Def Jam anyway, I just need to find another distributor. I might just have Cash Money do everything. Who knows? That’s the beauty about being in the business for yourself. You can decide where you want to go and what you want to do.”
