305 Live: Flo Rida, Iceberg, Mayday and More in Local Hip-Hop News
Flo-Rida teams up with the ultra-trendy David Guetta to releases his latest single off his upcoming album The Only One. The song is also featured on the Step Up 3D soundtrack. The song is called "Club Can't Handle Me" where Flo handles the main vocals and David Guetta handles the production. The song is a little cheesy sounding, but the clubs will eat it up. [The305]
Iceberg gets a date for his long anticipated Strictly For The Streets Volume II mixtape. It was scheduled to release a couple weeks back, but will now see the light of day on July 4th. The mixtape is hosted by DJ Sam Sneak and DJ Obscene. [Vimeo]
Hip-hop albums are notorious for having fluctuating release dates. And Rick Ross is a heavy offender. Each of his albums seemed to have some kind of associated delay. Rick's latest album Teflon Don has seen numerous delays and has now been changed from a July 6th release, to now being a July 20th release. People have speculating by saying that this most recent delay may have something to with the injunction being sought after by former drug-dealer Freeway Rick Ross to stop the release of Teflon Don for unauthorized usage of his name and likeness. Only time will tell how this pans out. [Hip Hop DX]
Derick G has released a third video of Mayday rocking it out with Lil Wayne during one of the many video shoots.

And finally, DJ Khaled strikes gold with his song "All I Do Is Win" off his Victory album. The song, which features Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain and Ludacris, has taken the radio airwaves by storm across the country. Much like Khaled's 2007 hit, "We Takin' Over". The gold plaques should be coming in the mail soon for the We The Best studios and offices. Congrats Khaled! [RapRadar]
