Design & Origin of Stars update #1

this will be the first of several updates on my upcoming mixtape Design & Origin of Stars...the CD will have 16-18 brand new tracks and the intro + outro...featured artists who have already recorded include Collie Buddz, Lemar, Shanell, Mickey Avalon, Ace Hood, Styles P, Passion Pit, Natasa Kojic, Kardinal Offishall, Crystal Castles and Gucci Mane...i spoke to Nicki Minaj and Kid Sister before new years and there's a chance they will be involved with the project as well...i'm also in talks with 3 other artists who are household names but nothing is close to confirmed and i don't want to jinx anything HOWEVER the fact I'm doing a mixtape instead of a album off the bat means once they do record i wont have to worry about clearing anything with labels (which has been a problem in the past)...most of the production is very radio friendly but towards the end of the tape it gets more experimental and creative...lyrically i have never spent so long writing for one project and recording wise I'm taking my time and not tryin to be "one-take hov" this time around...this CD is the most serious one i've ever done and for this reason i can't speculate on a release date or when the first singles will drop, i want to thank everyone for their support and please check back for updates on here and my twitter!
