[New Mixtape] August Alsina - 'The Product 2'

New Orleans is the home to many talented R&B artists like Dawn Richard and Luke James, but August Alsina is the newest crooner looking to put the city on his back as he climbs to the top. With his song "I Luv This Shit" doing numbers on radio (I just shut a bachelor party DOWN with this!),  August's latest mixtape The Product 2 is set to ensure his place as one of the contenders of the new school.

Stream the Def Jam/Radio Killa signee's DJ Drama hosted tape below!

Watch below as director Francisco Soriano compiles moments from Frank's summer of 2012, and be sure to buy the Grammy Award winning album on Amazon or iTunes if you haven't already!

2 Chainz Signs With Def Jam Records

Rumors had been spreading this week that 2 Chainz had inked a major deal with Def Jam, and Tity 2 Necklaces confirmed the rumor today in an interview with XXL. Looks like the hottest free agent finally has a home!
“It’s the Real University, Two Gun Gang, Street Executives. It’s not DTP no more. I’m actually behind [Ludacris], he’s still my homie. I just took another route as far as running my own company and bossing up. But on the other hand, I’m still working with him. He has an album coming out this year, as well. Matter of fact, we are label mates, now, which is crazy. So, yeah, that’ll be cool. I’m looking forward to that."
Tomorrow, he'll make his official announcement on MTV's Rap Fix Live at 4 PM, so I'll make sure to keep you posted!

Jhené Aiko Signs With Def Jam!!

Score 1 for the underground!! Jhené Aiko, one of my personal favorite artists out, has Sailed her Soul(s) to Def Jam for a deal with the No I.D., the head of the Cocaine 80s family. I'll have more info as it comes, but make sure you give her a shoutout on Twitter for the business move.

And for the diehard fans worried that she'll change, just listen to her music! Plus she's joining an incredible team of singer songwriters signed to Def Jam like The-Dream, James Fauntleroy & Frank Ocean so I feel like the sky's the limit for the Cali beauty.

Big K.R.I.T. Pushes Back Debut Album

I know I've been going on and on about all of the albums and EPs dropping on September 27th, and I was hype for every single one of them to be released.  Unfortunately, due to unknown reasons at the moment, Big K.R.I.T.'s Def Jam debut album Live From The Underground has been delayed until at least 2012.

Big K.R.I.T. confirmed this today through a retweet, which you can see for your own eyes here.

I'm a little confused by the delay.  I can understand pushing the album back for a few weeks in an attempt to maximize sales and diffuse the competition, but pushing it back until next year?? Live From The Underground is completed, his following his tremendous, and I think that the label should take advantage of this peak in his popularity to release the album.  As long as he continues to release great music and promote, hopefully his following will be just as large, if not larger, in 2012.

Next Up: Mr. Finley

As a self-proclaimed DJ (Big Boi, I don't wanna hear it) I feel it's my duty to help promote the artists and songs I keep on rotation. Mr. Finley is a Vegas native signed to Def Jam and part of Yelawolf's Ghet-o-Vision label.  His latest single "Oh Yeah" f/ Yelawolf has been getting all kinds of iTunes play counts and off-beat scratches on my Virtual DJ, and if it gets to the clubs it'll make all my emoticon typing gangstas want to smack the snapbacks off somebody. You definitely won't be disappointed.

Hit the jump to download his newest mixtape...
