Wow, this is a veritable meeting of the sing-rapping minds. Taken from Nelly’s 5.0., hitting November 16th.
Here’s a first look at the track list for Banks Hunger For More 2, dropping next month. Guests include Eminem, Kanye West, Governor, Raekwon, Jeremih, Lloyd, Akon, Ryan Leslie, Swizz Beatz, Julez Santana, 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, and Styles P.
New stuff from AKon’s Akonic LP, due November 29th, which should be a confusing mix of David Guetta produced house and gangster rap collabos. LISTEN: Akon – “Give It To ‘Em” (feat. Rick Ross)
Akon and Guetta’s last few leaks haven’t lived up to the hype of “Sexy Bitch”, but their latest collabo “Once”, just might. Damn, they really worked that autotune. Party people are you ready? LISTEN: Akon + David Guetta – “Once”
Aubrey Berry was recently found not guilty of killing rapper Dolla from last May 18th. The jury found that Mr. Berry was using self defense when he shot and killed Dolla. Dolla was signed to Akon’s Konvict Muzic label in 2007 and was in the process of working on his debut album.

New Kardinal Offishall and Akon off Kardinal’s upcoming album Mr. International. This is definitely another one of those straight to radio tracks with the house feel to it that shouldn’t surprise anyone that has heard Akon recently. Check it out below. LISTEN: Kardinal Offishall + Akon – “Body Bounce”
Obviously these two are trying to pump out another “Sexy Chick” (pause), so far with “Takin’ It Off” already making a little noise, and now this. Production works for what it is, however Akon’s stuff here seems a little dated, loosely referencing Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time” and Prince’s “1999″. And who says “party [cont.]

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Akon spilled details about his next album, as well as Dr. Dre’s “dance record”. “You’ve got some straight hardcore hip-hop guys actually moving into the dance realm,” Akon told the A.P. “And that’s shocking. When you’ve got someone like Dr. Dre about to do a dance record [cont.]
Thriller’s 25th Anniversary (and a certain prank call) sort of hinted who Michael Jackson was collaborating with before his death, as the release featured new remixes of classics from the album Akon and Will.I.Am. In a recent Billboard report, it was revealed by former Sony Music CEO Tommy Matolla that there is a wealth of [cont.]
There’s no question that Akon pretty much has the R&B/hip hop game on lock.
