I don't know the exact date, but his new album is supposed to drop this summer. Here's the link to the video of his first single: http://boss.streamos.com/real/universalmotown/universal/erick_sermon/video/00_relentless.ram (http://boss.streamos.com/real/universalmotown/universal/erick_sermon/video/00_relentless.ram). A very unusual single for E Dub, not really commercial, just him spittin' about his projects non-stop without a hook.

I really like "The Green Eyed Bandit", I think people have to like him just for the fact he's a member of one of the greatest crews of all time: EPMD (although the Def Squad is great too). I prefer PMD on the mic, but Erick Sermon has skills too and I love his productions.

I rather see him work on a Def Squad album or another EPMD album instead of making these solos.

An EPMD LP was supposed to be in the works last year but I haven't heard about that in a long time.

I thought exactly the same, that's why I said it's "a very unusual single for E Dub", but on the other hand it's good to see that somebody who became a mainstream-artist with the years shits on the sales and releases a single with dope lyrics instead of a club-hit. I'm sure he'll have enough of these party-tracks on his album, so it'll be a normal E Dub album, the only difference is that he released a non-club-hit as single. Good move in my opinion.

...I rather see him work on a Def Squad album or another EPMD album instead of making these solos...

Agreed.

Or not, seeing as club hits USUALLY (bad example: Joe Budden) sell good.

Releasing this song as his first single was just keepin it real cause it ain't commercial but the thing is,is that I don't like the beat.I hope it grows on me.

You're right, the beat is kinda strange, but I like it.
