Here’s what Glasses says about the song and video:

“This song focuses on how we were made to feel life would change after May 1st, the day Osama Bin Laden was killed. Yet everything is exactly the same in the world, my environment, as well as my personal life! I decided to do the COLD AS ICE mixtape to show my depth and lyrical ability. Ice Cube being one of my favorite emcees of all time as well as the controversy that surrounds our supposed beef, I figure why not go in on such a classic body of work. I truly believe this might be the way to get the respect I want from him and every other OG from his generation. I’m not some young dumb hot head, I got something to say as well!! If you heard the mixtape “2010” which is me abusing Dr. Dre beats, then you already know what to expect.”

9th wonder the wonder years

9th Wonder’s debut solo album The Wonder Years has been in the works for almost 4 years now but was repeatedly shelved or pushed back duetoi numerous reasons. The producer today announced on AHH that it’s finally coming on September 27th this year. Guests expected to make appearance are Marsha Ambrosius, Kendrick Lamar, Warren G., Big K.R.I.T., David Banner, Erykah Badu, Murs, Mac Miller, Big Remo, Rhapsody and Phonte.

“If there was ever a better time to express how I feel about Hip-Hop music, black music, or just music in general, it would be to do it now, on this project. My career has been from the depths of the underground, to the pop charts, but it has always stayed my sound, and what I believed in to be pure. Welcome to the Wonder Years.”

We haven’t heard much from Styles since he released the first single from his upcoming album Master Of Ceremonies back in February. But in this new interview with Forbez DVD, he announces that the LP is set for a September release. He also has a new yet-untitled mixtape in the works for next month.

Game is inviting fans to write or record a verse over the ‘Red Nation’ beat that he will shoot a video for. The lucky winner will be featured on his Facebook, Twitter and the Interscope newsletter. For more info go to Facebook.com/TheGame and Comptongame.com.
