HHDX News Bits (Dopetracks, Cam'Ron Album Title, Young Buck)
Producers can upload their beats, and vocalists/emcees can look up those beats and record their lyrics. "We want people to come to our site and express themselves however they want." says Kevin Cohen, Marketing Manager and founder. "Hip Hop seems like a natural fit but we encourage all styles and genres."
So what does one need to begin to use Dopetracks? Just a mic and a high seed Internet connection. Currently, tracks are limited to 60 seconds and are recorded at streaming quality."We're not creating broadcast quality recordings here. We're enabling users to connect with other artists of similar tastes and express their raw talent. Hopefully, this can lead to future collaborations in the studio," says Cohen.
Looks like the "beef" between Cam'Ron and 50 Cent is become a little more heated, as Cam'Ron announced this morning on Miss Jones' Hot 97 morning show that the title to his next album will be Courtesy Curtis. The album, set to release in the first week of July was announced while Cam spoke to DJ Envy:
Listen, man, we all got a deal with YouTube. Just admit when you lost. Hes losing the battle and he cant go to sleep. When he was on Angie Martinez, he said hes got bags under his eyes. Well, he must got a month and a half of bags under his eyes. It must be drooping down to his knees, because he really lost and he cant take it. I just wanted to let people know the name of my album its Courtesy Curtis. Seriously, Im just letting people know that. I was trying to chill out, because its really not fun taking advantage of someone who cant compete with you. But since he wants to keep on carrying on, Ill take it to the next level.
Cam continued, claiming that he will have a sitcom coming out called "Curtis," on Diplomat/KOCH TV on YouTube.
50 Cent's manager and CEO of Violator Chris Lighty denied recent comments made by 50 implying that Young Buck could be kicked out of G-Unit.
Yesterday, 50 had said on Hot 97's "Miss Jones in the Morning" show that put Buck in the same boat as Game for trying to make peace with some of 50's rivals. According to Lighty, "it was just a late April fools joke. 50 Cent has a twisted sense of humor."
