Troubled Hollywood actress Amanda Bynes is not sweating over things falling through with Wyclef Jean and is reportedly working alongside Atlanta's Waka Flocka Flame for a new rap album.
According to Flocka, he keeps in constant contact with the actress-turned-emcee.
Forget Wyclef Jean ... Amanda Bynes is hashing out a record deal with rapper Waka Flocka Flame for her upcoming hip hop album -- and Waka tells TMZ, it's going to be legendary. Waka -- who runs Brick Squad Monopoly records -- tells us, the deal hasn't been signed yet but it's basically in the bag ... in fact, he's already hired people to start penning Amanda's songs. Waka says he and Amanda FaceTime at least once a week and text every day -- mostly about her rap career ... but also about motivational stuff, like "keeping her head up from the haters." (TMZ)
Flockaveli also revealed what Amanda's mysterious hip-hop album title is.
Waka tells us the album will be called "Shots" -- adding, "It's going to be crazy hot." So far, there's no projected release date. As for whether Waka thinks there's something a little off about Amanda ... he said, "Not at all. She has it all together to me. She is cool as hell and ready for the rap world. I think she is going to kill the game." And just to make sure it's a success ... Waka says he'll be featured on several of Amanda's songs as well. Waka's good ... but is he THAT good? (TMZ)
This week, Fugees leader Wyclef Jean killed any idea of him working with Bynes in the near future.
"@vladtv false!," Clef tweeted in response to a headline about him working with the 27-year-old. (Wyclef Jean's Twitter)
A business meeting between Bynes and Clef was scheduled to take place Monday (June 17) night.
Amanda Bynes is meeting up tonight with Wyclef Jean to discuss a possible album collaboration, Chinga Chang Records CEO Dan Herman--who will also be in attendance--exclusively tells E! News. "I think it would be perfect," says Herman. "Linking the two of them will be something major." Wyclef has been very "receptive" to the idea of meeting with Bynes to brainstorm ideas, Hermon says, noting that he's confident such a pairing would be "great." "This album is going to shock the world," he adds. "She has such a great voice. Singers wish they could hit the notes that Amanda does." (E! Online)
