Fam-Lay is working on his next mixtape, Dirty Music. The first track we’ve heard is called “War Music.” (Check out his myspace site)” ‘War Music’ is actually a sample from a song called ‘Fever’ that’s on the ‘Last King Of Scotland’ [soundtrack],” Fam said. “My man Shay [Haley] from N¤E¤R¤D used to play it all the time, and me and him would just be vibing off it. The beat is so crazy. I was like, ‘I’mma off of that joint,’ and I did a freestyle on it called ‘War Music,’ which is coming out on my mixtape Dirty Music. [The tape] is a collection of afro-funk, afro-beats. It was something funny to do. I’m doing the whole mixtape like that.”
The Clipse’s Re-Up Gang LP is done. August 5 is the release date. Nobody’s sitting on their hands, though. Pusha T says he and brother Malice are working with a gang of producers on their third duo LP. Kanye West is a name the brothers have their eyes on. Of course, Pharrell Williams has already been in the lab with the group. “We’re recording the Clipse album right now,” Pusha told us last week in New York on the set of N¤E¤R¤D’s “Everybody Nose” Remix video. Kanye and Lupe Fiasco were also present. “[We're] working on ‘Till The Casket Drops, the third album. That drops this winter.
“For everybody who don’t know, we’re putting out The Clipse Presents: The Re-Up Gang through Koch [Records]. That’s the Re-Up Gang album, of course,” Pusha added. “You’ll love it, enjoy it. First single off there is ‘Fast Life.’ ‘Fast Life’ is just a celebration of the high life. A congratulations to all those who are still making it and living life to the fullest in this hard world that we’re living in.” His older brother, the lyrical menace Malice, simply described the record as “summertime fun with Scott Storch.” Scotty produced the song.
