Ok so who's excited to see what Dr. Dre and Timbaland have in store for the newest up and coming Detroit city MC, Hayes? I know I am despite Tim's latest retirement from hip hop late last year. Well Hayes sat down with AllHipHop.com and gave the latest on his new album First 48:
AllHipHop.com: So this First 48 album, is this really 48 joints on here, do I understand that correctly?
Hayes: Yea, that’s why it’s called First 48. n***as think I’m trying to bite off the show or I’m gonna kill them in 48 hrs or something. No n***a its 48 songs. I don’t know why n***as are diggin into it so deep
AllHipHop.com: So tell me about your album that you’re working on, more about the First 48, I know that’s done but tell me about some of the songs you are working on.
Hayes: We already have started some recording on it. I just got off tour with Timbaland, the Shock Value 2 Tour. Me and Timbaland are about to start working on the album. We was working on the studio bus being on the road. Tried to find a few times to work with Dre in between the tour dates.
AllHipHop.com: So is there an expected release date for the album?
Hayes: Ummm… Were working. Tim and Dre planned to do something early in the year. They’re both going to bring their A game. That’s the only f**king game they play. So you know what I’m saying? I don’t think that there’s any competition in my lane and I feel free.
48 tracks could you imagine? 24 each. I bet they'll be a good 20+ with a large chunk being interludes. What do you all think, an updated Chairmen of the Boards?
