he’s done and made mentions of ’3 months,’ so it’s safe to assume that this album is not coming out until september at the earliest. it’s all good. it’s gonna be an instant classic. yeah, i know what i said.
that’s right tweeters. the wizard of rap is back on twitter to share all of his musings. in his first 24 hours on the social network, the “rapper” has thrown out a handful of tidbits:
- his new album is coming out this summer. he calls it the “wizard” album and says it’s all rock, no rap. he produced and played guitar a lot of it too. (note: rebirth anyone?)
- he’s releasing a ‘film’ for maniac. the length is yet to be determined, but he’s aiming to release it later this year. this could be good.
- he’s been wearing the same jeans for months, and it feels good. BREAKING NEWS.
- new mixtape this summer – a man named scott. hopefully it’s good. it’s probably not.
- how to make it in america’s second season starts shooting in march. i kinda liked that show. sounds good to me.
- he’s gonna tour with chip tha ripper and cage.
there you have it, folks.
