Big K.R.I.T. collaborated with Yelawolf on an entire project. According to Big K.R.I.T. the two will drop Country Cousins later this year or early next year and it will be a full blown album. While promoting his tour, K.R.I.T. stopped by Power 105.1′s commercial radio station to do a promo interview. Faced with criticism about Yelawolf, K.R.I.T. defended his partner-in-rhyme and explained a bit more about the album. “What are you talking about?” K.R.I.T. asked, speaking about criticism for Yela. “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion but I can’t feel that way. Once you break down the lyrical content, the homie got something to say. You’ve got to listen, though…You are missing out on some good music.” “We’re trying to make it an album,” he shared, before saying it should be out by the end of this year or the start of 2013. There is not a new rapper in NY that has just came out in the last 3 years that can deal with Yelawolfs wordplay on his tracks.

B.G. says he’s ready for his 14 year prison term – we say BS to prosecutors using his lyrics against him
Ex-Hot Boys rapper B.G. was sentenced to 14 years in prison for weapons possession and witness tampering charges.
Prosecutors also tried to link the former Cash Money rapper to two notorious local criminals. The link was allegedly provided by B.G. himself, in his own rap lyrics.
In 2009, the then-29-year-old rapper also known as Baby Gangsta was arrested along with two other men in a stolen car, reports Vibe. Police searched the vehicle and discovered three handguns and loaded magazines.
At the time, one of B.G.’s cohorts, Demounde Pollard, took the rap for the guns. But after realizing the stiff penalty he faced for the weapons charge, Pollard changed his tune and claimed that B.G., whose real name is Christopher Dorsey, forced him into the false confession, reports Vibe. As a result, B.G. was charged with the felony offense of witness tampering to go along with the weapons charge.
In prison, B.G. will have plenty of opportunity to pen some fresh rap lyrics. He should just be careful not to confess to any crimes or brag too hard about his “gangsta” conduct.
In the case against B.G., federal prosecutors introduced several of his rap videos where the rapper gave props to two alleged murderers who are well-known in New Orleans. It’s not clear how this evidence was tied to the weapons and witness tampering charge. Most likely, it was just used to show B.G.’s poor character and his contributing to the “cycle of violence” in New Orleans.
In fact, the judge declined to give B.G. a harsher sentence because of the videos as prosecutors had requested, the local Times-Picayune reports. B.G. is appealing his prison sentence based partly on the argument that he should not be punished for his art.
Flo Rida screwed over the entire country of Canada by pulling the plug on a concert tour at least that’s what the jilted promoter is claiming in a whopping $200k federal lawsuit.
The suit was filed this week in Florida (the state) by Spin Artist Agency which claims they had a signed contract for the rapper to perform 10 shows in the summer of 2011 … but he never showed. According to the suit, Flo was supposed to perform from July 3 to July 12 — but just one day before that Flo’s reps “wrongfully cancelled the Tour.”SPAA is suing Flo Rida for breach of contract and claiming massive loses in ticket, concession and booze sales. They are demanding damages of at least $200,000.Not a “Good Feeling.”
