Rappers And Their Sidekicks

January 7th, 2009 10:08am EST
Birdman
Ever wondered why rappers need sidekicks to help them rap a song? Why do they need that extra guy hanging around in the background doing nothing of great significance? Sometimes these side guys can actually rap themselves and end up with their own solo albums, but eventually, they all seem to fail miserably and disappear. We've all seen it happen.

Mase, Loon, and Farnsworth Bentley (also known as Fonzworth Bentley)

Kelly Price Returns To Gospel Roots With "This Is Who I Am," Out Oct. 24

October 4th, 2006 1:55pm EDT
Kelly Price
Kelly Price has been said to possess one of the most extraordinary voices in modern music. Born and reared in Queens, NY, Price’s musical talent showed itself at an early age. Price’s mother vividly recalls the many, many nights the household was awakened to the sound of Kelly singing out from her crib. As a child of the Church, both of her parents are ordained ministers, music became inextricably intertwined with the emotional fabric of her life, and it was through music that she expressed feelings she was often unable to speak aloud. One day, after being deeply saddened by a book she read...

Win A Copy Of Loon's sophomore album, "No Friends," which hits stores August 29

July 11th, 2006 5:09pm EDT
Loon
Former Bad Boy protégé artist Loon has branched off to begin his own indie label and is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album titled No Friends.

"The reason I called it No Friends is because this is the first project that I've put together by myself," Loon explained. "I put it together to put something out for the streets and [to] show some diversity and balance, things I never got to show on Bad Boy. This is me collaborating with my own artists and putting together some treats that people might not be used to be hearing from Loon."

Loon boasts a harder image on this ...

Lil Scrappy
Lil Scrappy is set to shoot not one but two back-to-back videos for his sophomore album. Acclaimed video director Marcus Raboy will be shooting the Isaac Hayes III-produced "Money In The Bank" on June 28th and the adrenaline-rushing Lil Jon-produced anthem "Gangsta Gangsta" on June 29th, both in Los Angeles, CA.

Scrappy goes into player mode alongside undisputed King of Crunk, super-producer and BME-head Lil Jon, and Nashville bad boy Young Buck (G-Unit Records) atop a mid-tempo instrumental and quirky synths on "Money In The Bank." On the flossy visuals, three high-powered money maker...
