In this DX Exclusive, Spider Loc speaks on everything from his multiple TV and film appearances to the status of the next G-Unit album.
The sales battle between 50 Cent and Kanye West has come and gone, but the machine that is G-Unit never stops. The Unit's other Curtis, Spider Loc, gave HipHopDX the exclusive on his crew's upcoming projects.
First up, Loc himself will appear on another episode of the CBS show Cold Case. Spider Loc will play a character named Delonte on the episode entitled "Wunderkind" airing October 21. Cold Case airs every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. on CBS.
After dropping his West Kept Secret: The Prequel album on September 11 through his own Koch/RBC distributed BAYMAAC label, Loc says his G-Unit/Interscope debut, tentatively titled World Wide Web, is scheduled for release after another G-Unit album.
"These industry things change daily, but nothing has been communicated to me to make be believe otherwise," he said. "Out of the 60 or 70 records that they're thumbing through, I appear on close to 20 of those. So that helps my chances as far as having a presence on the upcoming G-Unit album. I've got my fingers crossed just like my fans."
In the meantime, Spider Loc plans to release the street album "The King of R&B" before the end of October.
"R&B stands for rappin' and bangin'," Spider Loc explained. "It's a body of work dedicated to the ladies--not necessarily to make love to them or kiss their ass, but just something they could appreciate. Almost all of the records have R&B hooks on them, so it has a double meaning." A clip of "I Like" from the album is located below. Upcoming releases from Pipe The Snipe and Papa Smurf are also upcoming as well as a direct release of the film Paroled, which co-stars Master P and Ernest Thomas.
