With today's release of Hurricane Chris' sophomore album, Unleashed, SOHH spoke with the "Halle Berry" hitmaker to find out what fans should expect to hear this time around.
Chris said the album's tracklisting was slimmed down by his record labels.
"Actually that was all Polo Grounds and J Records," Chris explained to SOHH. "I submitted way more songs and they went and did some other than what I told them to do. But I told you, that's part of the situation we're going through with these record labels right now, they think they know what they're doing and they doing a whole bunch of crazy foolishness so right now we just getting the business straight. I did like 19 songs for that album -- but the mixtape is about to drop and you'll get everything that didn't make the album." (SOHH)
He also explained what his aim was with the new album.
"My main goal with this album is to let you know what level I done elevated to," Chris added. "This album is going to bring to you a whole new Hurricane. This album right here is off the meat rack, Unleashed...I'm fixing to rush the Internet and the streets all at one time. It's going down in a major way, Hurricane, get your paper up." (SOHH)
The new album features guest appearances from Mario and Plies.
