Independent Las Vegas label Jake Records - now into its fourth year in the game - has become a regular feature on Dubcnn having released albums with Digital Underground, BINC, Westside Bugg, Element. Not only that but we've sat down with Jake Records founder and CEO Scott Thomas to talk about the label's beginnings and more in this exclusive interview in February 2011. The last time we dropped some news from Jake Records was following the Japanese Earthquake where they were planning the "Jake For Japan" album.
Today Jake Records have announced a new partnership with Hip Hop recording artist Money B. The label has paired with the artist's Mandatory Muzic label to release the upcoming second solo album from the Digital Underground member.
The album, yet to be titled, is slated for release later this year. The album is the first commercial solo project from Money B since 2000, though his "Mandatory Volume 1" mixtape was released in 2007 [see our update from September 2007; Money B Is "Stuntin" On 2 New Releases], and became an instant hit among fans.
The new project features collaborations involving a number of top producers, including DJ Premier. "This is going to be one of those talked about albums, that once it drops, will be on the collective mind of Hip Hop fans for years and years to come," said Jake Records founder and CEO Scott Thomas. "Money B is a seasoned veteran in the game, who knows how to make a project not only come to life, but live on forever once its hit the ground," he added.
On the release of the new album and partnering with Jake Records, Money B said "I'm exited to finally be working with Jake Records directly. I'm Looking forward to bringing my fans my signature style of music they know and love, as well as introduce them to new aspects of my musical growth."
