Twenty-plus year veterans of releasing music, Bronx, New York duo Showbiz & A.G. (a/k/a Show & A.G.) have announced plans for a new full-length album. The group, which first appeared on Lord Finesse's 1990 debut with Mike Smooth, The Funky Technician, went on to be founding members (with Finesse and others) of the Diggin' In The Crates crew, spawning the careers of Fat Joe and Big L, among others.

The pair's upcoming album is to be called Suspended Animation, as a title track leaked to the Internet this week. This will be the group's first collaborative album since 2007's Live Hard, released on Show's D.I.T.C. Records imprint by "The Show & A Experience." This year, Show teamed with KRS-One to release Godsville, while A.G. released his latest solo, Everything's Berri last year.

"I did so much on his record, I did six records," 50, who is featured on The Documentary's "Hate It or Love It," "Westside Story" and "How We Do," scoffed. "To take the time and energy from what I'm doing on my record and create his record, then have him go off at his mouth like that and be disrespectful ... "Game had actually been on AftermatH for TWO YEARS before they gave me the opportunity to do the project with Dre," 50 told MTV in January. "I think creatively they were stuck a little, but then when I was brought in we were able to add new energy. They got excited about the project, brought him out, we recorded like nine records at the house in Farmington, [Connecticut]. He went back to Los Angeles with the records, Dre liked them, and I just got him re-motivated and he went in and finished up the album."The Game and 50's marriage was never a natural union to begin with. Game was originally signed solely to Dr. Dre's Aftermath imprint, working on his album for a couple of years before Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine proposed bringing Game into the G-Unit fold. Iovine talked to Dre, who called in 50. GAME IS A TRUE STUDIO GANGSTA

      STFU, Nas is the one who doesn't want to work with Premo. Premo asked for him on almost all his concerts. He said he's ready at anytime, that the door is always open for Nas, but this faggot is too scared, because he ain't got it no more and the results would be disappointing as fuck. Reks rips Premier's beats to shreds nowadays.

    I just paid $23,98 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $37,59 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $677 which only cost me $72,13 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentStart.com
