Crime Mob Announces New Album After Reuniting In Atlanta (Video)

Crime Mob is making a full comeback with their third studio album.

Crime Mob is making a full comeback, guys. It's been years since we've seen the Atlanta-based rap group together on stage together, but over the weekend (Mar 25), Lil Jay, M.I.G, Cyco Black, Diamond, and Princess reunited at 'V-103 Live' in Atlanta for an updated performance of "Knuck If You Buck." Afterwards, the crew revealed they are finally breaking their 10-year hiatus to release a new album this year.

During an interview with radio host, Big Tigger, the crew reflected on their reunion performance one decade after the release of their 2007 LP Hated On Mostly. After expressing how thankful she was that they could reunite in their hometown, Tigger asked Princess what's really good with new music from the Crime Mob crew.

"New music. New movement," Princess replied. "It's a whole new sound."

Lil Jay also revealed that the crew plans to drop their third studio album in 2017. He also announced that the ladies of the crew---Diamond and Princess---are working on a joint album as well. Crime Mob's last studio album Hated On Mostly featured popular singles like "Rock Yo Hips," but couldn't match the impact of their self-titled debut album, which features "Knuck If You Buck," "Diggin Me," and "Stilleto (Pumps)."

Kids of today just don't know the affect Crime Mob had on the youth of the South. Before Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall hopped on their most infamous beat, produced by Lil Jay, Crime Mob bursted onto the scene and landed themselves on the Billboard charts with their debut single "Knuck If You Buck," featuring Lil Scrappy in 2004.

When asked how they felt about the national impact of "Juju On The Beat," the crew agreed that they all actually love "Juju." Princess kept it all the way 100 and shared that she really started to love it after those checks started coming in.

Jaden Smith Paints The City Pink "Again" In New Video

Jaden Smith released the brand new music visuals for his record, "Again," featuring his alter ego SYRE.  The song is taken from his latest album ERYS, which dropped earlier this year.

Here, in the new visuals, Jaden uses his typical pink-colored theme, as the video kicks off with him spray painting his pink car with his MSFTS imprint before breaking out into a dance on top of the car.

The rapper seems to be sporting a new triangle-shaped face tattoo on his right cheek, which is probably just for the video, and may or may not be a reference to that illuminati-pyramid he was building in his parents backyard.

In other Jaden Smith news, the actor is slated to play a young Kanye West in Omniverse, an anthology that examines perception through the eyes of Mr. West.

Watch the video above.

Cardi B's Latest Freestyle Fuels Anticipation For Sophomore Album

Cardi B is sparking more anticipation for her next album thanks to her latest freestyle. On Monday (Nov. 19), the rapper dropped some bars on Instagram to hold fans over until the release of her sophomore project.

"Just a little something something... hair on healthy," she captioned the freestyle over Cam'ron's classic track, "357." Keeping it natural and raw, the Bronx native posts up in front of Cap'n Crunch and a Costco box full of Vienna sausages to drop her freestyle about the wins and losses she's taken this year.

"I be in the mansion, you be in my mentions / I came right out the trenches to the top of the charts / Lost friends on the way / This s***t is breaking my heart / 'Bout 30 seconds in I'm like where do I start / I don't act I'm a hustler just playing my part,"  she spits.

If anything, this can be a hint to fans that she's gravitating back towards her hip-hop roots, an element heavily heard on her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. In a recent interview with Billboard, Cardi talked about her new album and curiosities about its direction.

"There's certain music that I want to do, but I feel like, [are] people interested in that? I feel like things have changed. It's more like a twerk sound going on right now," she said. "It's just like, 'Should I just do my music around that?' But I cannot just go with what's hot. I still gotta go with what I want to do."

Cardi has no problem adapting to popular music. She's worked with the likes of Selena Gomez on DJ's Snake's "Taki Taki" with Ozuna in 2018 and took her guest spots to another level in 2019 by working with Ed Sheeran ("South of The Border"), Lil Nas X ("Rodeo") and French Montana ("Writings On The Wall"). She also dropped a show-stopping video for "Press" over the summer.

But at the end of the day, Cardi's new music is coming first. "My album is on my mind 24/7,"she said. "It's practically all I'm focusing on."

Enjoy her freestyle (and sleek blowout) below.
