Aside from Hollywood, the rapper recently spoke on his forthcoming Venni Vetti Vecci comeback album.
“I wanted to do a three disc set but I’m thinking about changing the idea of how I want to do it,” Rule told interviewer Lola. “One set was gonna be all hip-hop. Straight back to the roots hip-hop was gonna be the first disc, then the second one was gonna be when I came into the game and kinda transformed, learned being in the business doing duets and stuff like that. The third disc was gonna be Rule, my new sound and that was gonna be that but the album is coming out crazy so I think I wanna give ‘em, maybe a double. Or I might just give ‘em 14, 15 bangers…This time, it’s more of the content of myself, what I’ve been through, what I’ve seen…It’s coming in the summer time, I was pushing for a June date but I don’t know if I’m gonna make that date or not. So it’ll definitely be here this summer.” (iLuvLola)
Last September, Rule announced the upcoming album title.
“I’m trying to take it up a notch, something a little more different,” Rule said about Venni Vetti Vecci 2010. “Maybe I can have some of these spaces in time where — this album, I really wanna make this album for the people, for the public so they can enjoy. This album’s not about, we ain’t getting money off rap records like we used to. So when I’m doing it now, it ain’t for the money. It’s for the love because it ain’t out there like that.” (Rhyme & Reason)
Rule previously spoke on the status of his solo project and what role the fans would have on the project’s title.
“New album coming soon,” Rule promised in an interview. “I think I’ma do something for the people where y’all help me with the title of my next album because I was gonna name my sh*t The Mirror but…the album got leaked…I think I’ma do a contest or something where I get the people to give me their feedback on what the album should be called…Keep talking, the album’s coming. All y’all hater n*ggas, I love y’all. Keep running your mouths. Y’all n*ggas are helping my cause, keep up the good work.” (Forbez DVD)
