2 Live Crew and Mannie Fresh Hook Up For New Hip Hop Album
Legendary Hip-Hop super group 2 Live Crew has linked up with super producer Mannie Fresh and Funk Boogie for a new album with all new material.
The album titled ‘Just Wanna Be Heard’ will be released on Nu Focuz Entertainment/Lil Joe Records and is slated for release in August 2010.
Fresh Kid Ice told AllHipHop.com that that they have been away for a long time and the album will state where Marquid and himself are coming from.
“We want to be back on the scene and with a lot of things going on. Music is like the same right now when you listen to a lot of different groups and so forth. So itâ€™s our time again to be heard and we wanna be heard. So with two platinum producers and we all basically vibed on how to take 2 Live Crew to the next level instead of sounding like we did in the 80â€™s and 90â€™s.”
Besides 2 Live Crews original members Brother Marquis, Fresh Kid Ice, DJ Mr. Mixx and Uncle Luke, ‘Just Wanna Be Heard’ will also feature artists Too $hort, E-40, The Insane Clown Posse as well as others. The first single for the album is entitled ‘Cougar.’
“Itâ€™s a lot of older women with the younger men type of thing and itâ€™s a good thing,â€ Fresh Kid Ice says. â€œCause you gotta learn somewhere so hopefully every young man can experience a cougar and hope she donâ€™t bite too hard.”
2 Live Crew will reunite with Luke Campbell to hit the road this summer for a reunion tour.
â€œ2 Live Crew was a great experience. I love these guys! Fresh Kid Ice, and Lukeâ€¦.I love those dudes and when we get back on the reunion tour, weâ€™re gonna make a lot of stuff happen,â€ says Brother Marquis.
