After giving fans an electrifying performance alongside his Lox crew at New Jersey's Powerhouse concert last week, SOHH caught up with Styles P to see what's good with his upcoming CD/DVD combo Phantom Gangster Chronicles, Volume 1.
Styles' new album will be hitting stores on November 11th and the Yonkers-bred rapper is bringing some of the top entertainers in the industry along for the ride on his accompanying video.
"I got Jim Jones on the DVD, Fat Joe, E-40, Idris Elba, Baron Davis, Young Jeezy," Styles told SOHH. "And we just gettin' in to some sh*t that I think people need to hear."
Uninspired from the typical independent projects by rappers offering the same flashy cars and jewelery, the Ghost is using this opportunity to shed light on what really goes on in the entertainment world.
"This is just the chance to just see real life sh*t in the industry instead of all this other sh*t you used to seeing on these DVDs and the same old footage and same old sh*t you hear," he promised. "You gonna hear in-depth sh*t about how people make their money, how they spend their money, how they use some of their influences in life."
Making his forthcoming package more original and diverse, Styles even added a health-based aspect to the DVD but promises fans can still look forward to hearing that "street sh*t" when they pop in the mixtape portion.
"We got a section about eating good," Styles added. "[There's] a section about exercising. So what you're expecting is some real, real footage. As far as the mixtape, you can expect some real street sh*t, you know, just going in."
Not stopping here, the rapper also plans to put down the microphone and sit in the director's chair trying his hand in the movie business.
"I think I'll be going out to Hollywood probably around January or February or so," he added. "Not just acting either, I'm trying to direct and write and all of that. I'm open to everything, man."
Phantom Gangster Chronicles, Volume 1 is currently scheduled to hit retail stores on Tuesday, November 11 via Koch/D-Block Records.
