Last night (er…early this morning, depending on where you were) The Legendary Traxster held a press conference live from Traxster Inc. Studios in Atlanta, GA to discuss the delay of Do or Die’s Trunk Music which was slated for release yesterday (3/18/08).
Basically the gist of why the album has been shelved indefinitely is due to contractual and financial disagreement between the two parties. A few months back Traxster acquired the rights to the Legion Records catalog, which was Do or Die’s former recording home. Unhappy with Do or Die’s finished product of the album they turned in, Trax went in an reproduced and remastered the entire album. Obviously a lot of red tape was involved, which lead to a standstill with the project. Will the album ever see the light of day? I wouldn’t hold your breath.
Although Traxster is no longer affiliated with Do or Die and has no plans to work with them in the immediate future, he did take the time to shout out Belo Zero of the famed group who is currently serving time on a murder charge.
For those of you who are dying to hear more from Traxster, the good news is you won’t have to wait too much longer, as Return of the Gangsta Music, his solo album, drops on April 8, 2008 – via iTunes.
