No Love Lost is the third studio album by rapper Joe Budden and was released on February 5, under E1 Music label. The album features guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Lloyd Banks, Juicy J, Slaughterhouse, Tank, Fabolous, Kirko Bangz, Wiz Khalifa, Twista, French Montana and Omarion among others. Budden has stated that the album is actually the final piece of the four album concept, which includes Halfway House, Padded Room and Escape Route, as he finally finds salvation and freedom from a sense of confinement that had been pervading his life and career. In August 2009, Budden and Amalgam Digital released a digital-only album entitled Escape Route, the third piece of the four album concept. Budden said that Escape Route will give fans a taste of what to expect from him on his third studio effort. In September 2010, Budden officially signed to E1 Music, so the album will not be released under Amalgam Digital. At the end of 2012, Budden embarked on the Second First Impression Tour. Budden explained that he hoped to highlight his love for the live instrumentation that’s made R&B great through generations on No Love Lost with more jazzy beats. Also saying ‘love’ will be the main subject point of the album. Check out the video for “She Don’t Put It Down Like You” » Read more..

Someone’s been getting it in over the holidays! 50 Cent has been on a music video production spree and has recently released several music videos over the last couple weeks. You can watch the following official music videos below of “They Burn Me”, “Off and On” and “Put Your Hands Up” which are definitely interesting watch and graphic I must say. We have all been waiting on the release of his fifth studio album “Before I Self Destruct II“ and have witnessed much drama surrounding the album itself. The LP is set to be released sometime in early 2012, through Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. The album will reportedly be 50 Cent’s final album released through Interscope, as part of the contract he signed after joining the label in 2002 which requires him to release at least five albums with the label. The album will feature a multitude of vocalists, including Shady Records founder Eminem, Lloyd Banks, Kidd Kidd and Busta Rhymes, among others. Originally, 50 Cent’s fifth studio album was set to be Black Magic, an album influenced by several genres including rock and dance music. However, its release was postponed as 50 Cent began to write material based on a different concept, rather than the one influencing Black Magic. As a result, recording sessions for a brand new album began from scratch, and the new material is reportedly of a traditional hip hop nature, involving producers such as Cardiak, Bangladesh, The Cataracs, Hit-Boy, Jim Jonsin, Swizz Beatz, Jake One and Just Blaze among others.
