For all of you MySpace artists out there, get ready, because Dopetracks, LLC has launched their new site – Dopetracks.com. The site is a web-based platform for creating music between people who are miles apart.
Producers can upload their beats, and vocalists/emcees can look up those beats and record their lyrics. “We want people to come to our site and express themselves however they
want.” says Kevin Cohen, Marketing Manager and founder. “Hip Hop seems
like a natural fit but we encourage all styles and genres.”
So what does one need to begin to use Dopetracks? Just a mic and a high seed Internet connection. Currently, tracks are limited to 60 seconds and are recorded at streaming quality.“We’re not creating broadcast quality recordings here. We’re enabling
users to connect with other artists of similar tastes and express their
raw talent. Hopefully, this can lead to future collaborations in the
studio,” says Cohen.
Looks like the “beef” between Cam’Ron and 50 Cent is become a little more heated, as Cam’Ron announced this morning on Miss Jones’ Hot 97 morning show that the title to his next album will be Courtesy Curtis.

battle and he can’t go to sleep. When he was on Angie Martinez, he said
he’s got bags under his eyes. Well, he must got a month and a half of
bags under his eyes. It must be drooping down to his knees, because he
really lost and he can’t take it. I just wanted to let people know the
name of my album — it’s Courtesy Curtis. Seriously, I’m just
letting people know that. I was trying to chill out, because it’s
really not fun taking advantage of someone who can’t compete with you.
But since he wants to keep on carrying on, I’ll take it to the next
Cam continued, claiming that he will have a sitcom coming out called “Curtis,” on Diplomat/KOCH TV on YouTube.
50 Cent’s manager and CEO of Violator Chris Lighty denied recent comments made by 50 implying that Young Buck could be kicked out of G-Unit.
Yesterday, 50 had said on Hot 97’s “Miss Jones in the Morning” show that put Buck in the same boat as Game for trying to make peace with some of 50’s rivals. According to Lighty, “it was just a late April fools joke. 50 Cent has a twisted sense of humor.”
