September 27, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Two of the hardest hustlas' in the rap game get Connected a new project with a release date of November 14. Houston's "Freestyle King" Lil' Flip and the West Coast’s “Hustle King", Mr. Capone-e combine their flow to create a raw, hard-hitting 21-track reflection of their worlds entitled Connected.

After a tumultuous and successful year that included a label switch, Lil' Flip was exploring ways to build some inroads into the West Coast. Always having an ear to the street, Lil Flip had heard about Mr. Capone-e's string of Billboard successes on High Power/B-Dub Records including collaborations' and full CD's with Twista, (whose single "Don't get it Twisted" is currently getting power rotation nationwide), Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Zapp, and Mr. Criminal Of course, Mr. Capone-e's was also enjoying tremendous success with his own releases.

Lil' Flip recognized the underground hustle of a man moving over a million plus units with no major label promo machine behind him and wanted in. Capone-e’s High Power label is distributed through indie power-house B-Dub/Thump Records, distributed by Universal Music Distribution.

Mr. Capone-e's fan base is primarily Latino and maintains a loyal stronghold in the throughout the West Coast, Southwest and Midwest. The emerging Latin market is rapidly becoming an important factor in urban radio and strong record sales. Thump has been an industry leader in the Latin/Hip-Hop market since it's inception as a partner of Low Rider Magazine over 20 years ago.

    Lil' flip's last CD entitled, "U Got to Feel Me", was a crossover success and propelled him to national recognition. It has since reached double platinum status behind such hits as "Gameover" and "Sunshine". Up and coming rappers should take note on how to work the streets by these two Soundscan heavyweights. Their lead off single is a banger entitled "Hustle for Something".

   There is no denying the street tenacity of Lil' Flip and Mr. Capone. There is also no denying the sales pull of these 2 heavyweights. Connected will have corporate America fiendin' for a piece of Lil' Flip and Mr. Capone -e.

Get Connected on November 14th
