Sonyae – Leave Of Presence (Album Cover)


Sonyae is a great emcee. Don’t look at her as a female emcee, she deserves much credit to be called a “emcee”. I’ve worked with her in the past, and the growth since then has been amazing. I didn’t make the final cut on her new project, Leave Of Presence but she has got some great emcees and producers she’s enlisted to help her on her debut project.

The project will be released on November 28th, 2014.

Chris Brown – X (Album Cover & Tracklisting)


After much anticipation, delays and pushbacks, it seems like Breezy finally has the green light to release his forthcoming album, X. We received the 21 tracklisting featured with A-List artists featuring R. Kelly, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj, and more. Judging from the tracklisting, the album looks very promising, but can 21 tracks be too much for one album. Album is set to be on September 16th.
