“As far as working with Beanie, It’s a motivational song called “Tell That I Won’t Run Away.” It’s for all my strong Black people and Beanie Man putting that Jamaican fire on there and it’s a mixture of both our styles and it represents the struggle.”
Hurricane Chris has held down radio this year with his monstrous single “Halle Berry.” But as many of his fans have been wondering, when’s the album coming. Signed to Polo Grounds/ J Records, the Louisiana fire spitter broke down the hold up and the upcoming 2010 release of his sophomore album, Unleashed. Speaking with Hip-Hop Wired, he stated,
“We got a lot of business that be going on behind the scenes [that’s being worked out]. You get in music, most of the time you think it’s just going to be all about music, but there’s a lot of business behind it. I’m going through a whole lot with them record labels just trying to make them speed that process up because I got like 10,000 hits that I’m ready to drop. I had to jump “Halle Berry” of on my own and then they got behind it. You basically gotta promote yourself now.”
In the meantime, Chris is still fine-tuning his upcoming release and revealed a little of what to expect.
“So I got a mixtape I’m about to drop right now. I’m gonna heat the streets all the way up so we just waiting on the label to get ready. The name of my album is Unleashed. We steady switching the date so you know, we pushing it back. I got another video that’s going to come out right now…I got a single out with Mario and Plies called “Headboard.” It’s on and it’s picking up heavy…we out promoting it right now. I got a lot on the album too. When the album comes you gonna get a different side of me, probably something you ain’t got from me before. You getting all my versatility in this album. I got features from Beanie Man, it’s just on a whole other level. So when we release Unleashed, you gonna know what time it is.”
Hurricane also will showcase more of his enlightening songs which many have overlooked as they wrongfully place him in a ringtone rap category. Try stepping to him cocky and over confident and you’ll probably be the one taking the L. Adding a little detail about his upcoming music and his new mixtape dropping right before Christmas, he added,
“The mixtape is coming two weeks. It’s called Hurricane The Great…Louis-Animal 2. Only one song from the mixtape, “Beat It Out The Frame,” will probably be on the album. It’s a club banger… As far as working with Beanie, It’s a motivational song called “Tell That I Won’t Run Away.” It’s for all my strong Black people and Beanie Man putting that Jamaican fire on there and it’s a mixture of both our styles and it represents the struggle.”
Unleashed will also include production Funk Dog (A Bay Bay), Shawty Red, Bangladesh, KLC, and The Incredibles.
