Koch Records announced this week that DJ UNK will release his sophomore album November 4, aptly titled Second Season.

After selling a combined six million digital/mobile units from his first album, backed largely by the smash hit "Walk It Out," the Atlanta deejay and rapper has been pushing his single "Show Out." The record, which has been added at 50 radio stations this week, was created by Flo Rida "Low" producer Montay.

The album also features Ray J, Sean Kingston and Three 6 Mafia.

Koch Records
' President Bob Frank states, "UNK has delivered another great album filled with hits!
We are thrilled to be partners with Big Oomp [Records
] and UNK and look forward
to working this project throughout 2009.

Cypress Hill and Beastie Boys musician Eric Bobo also announced that he is releasing his own album, titled Meeting of the Minds.

Tuesday afternoon, the man who was honored with Cypress Hill in Hip Hop Honors' video vignette told HipHopDX, "The
direction I wanted to take with
was one that brought together
different genres of music under one umbrella, just how Hip Hop fuses
different sounds and influences. With my base musical background of
Latin-Jazz and being exposed to so many genres of music through my
father, Willie Bobo, I knew this album had to bring together that same
concept, which made the title Meeting Of The Minds fit perfectly."

The album features Thirstin Howl III, Tony Touch and Demigodz. It releases November 18. Stay tuned to HipHopDX where Bobo will premier the single "Apocalypse Now" for free download. To here the album, [click here].
