Amil Iz Back?!

Former Roc-A-Fella rapper, Amil is finishing up her new sophomore album called "Amil Az Iz."

It was rumored that Amil had been working in JC Penny's or Macys in NYC. That is not the case, seeing that she currently lives in North Carolina. Her album is due in stores on D.O.E./Baby Grande Records.

Background Info:
Amil was once an artist on Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records. After a year or so without completing a follow-up album, she was later dropped from the label... (Side Note: Speaking of which, what happened to the Freeway album that was to be executive produced by Jay-Z and 50 Cent's in a joint venture?)

She appeared on a number of hit singles with the likes of Jay-Z & Memphis Bleek (Hey Papi) as well as LL Cool J (Fatty Girl).

Plies Goes P2P

Upcoming artist Plies, with hot single "Shawty" ft. T-Pain has become the first artist on Atlantic Records to ink a major deal involving P2P file trading services.

A substantial six figure deal will be split between Plies and his publishing company, Media Defender and Atlantic Records. The Sprint logo will be attached to the song files permanently and will appear with Plies’ name and song title on the screen of a desktop computer, iPod or cell phone, in addition to any digital music player.
