Waka Flocka Flame has had a busy 2012. The Atlanta, Georgia-based rapper had a public falling out with Brick Squad 1017 and album collaborator Gucci Mane. Still retaining his Brick Squad Monopoly imprint, Flocka has been working on the follow-up to his 2010 solo debut, Flockaveli.
Today on Twitter, Waka announced that Flockaveli 2 will release exactly two years to the day from his Top 10 debut. The Brick Squad Monopoly/Warner Bros./Atlantic Records artist will keep the October 5 tradition alive.

Guests, production and confirmation of a label have yet to be released—though in January, the rapper called the album, "Flockaveli Part 2," and stated that Timbaland and Wyclef Jean were involved in the recording. Last year, Waka released Triple F: Friends, Fans & Family. Another Top 10 appearance, the LP featured Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill and Drake, among many others.
Original Story The popular social networking site Facebook has been hit with a lawsuit from Eminem and his publishing company Eight Mile Style LLC due to what is believed to be the unlawful use of the Detroit rapper and D12’s collaboration “Under The Influence.”
According to AllHipHop.com, the lawsuit states that Facebook posted a Wieden + Kennedy ad, which promoted their new Facebook Home app and in the ad the music used is believed to be “Under The Influence.” An altered version of the ad was then released, but according to the lawsuit the edit was then taken as Facebook’s acknowledgement of the unapproved use of Eminem and D12’s song.
“The alteration of the Airplane advertisement was an admission that Facebook knew it had infringed on the Eminem/D12 Composition,” states the lawsuit.
Ironically, Eminem’s lawsuit states that Facebook and Wieden + Kennedy’s response to the cease and desist order, which was initially placed, called out Dr. Dre although the mega-producer did not produce or have any involvement with “Under The Influence.”

Original Story French Montana released his studio debut, Excuse My French today. The Maybach Music Group/Bad Boy Worldwide rapper celebrated by enhancing his Coke Boys roster.
Def Jam Records' newly-announced Executive Vice President, Shawn "Pecas" Costner tweeted that French has signed Chicago, Illinois rapper Lil Durk to his fledgling imprint, with posting a photo of the trio, joined by Wale. Durk is already affiliated with Glory Boyz Entertainment (a/k/a GBE), which is home to Chief Keef and Lil Reese.
By Pecas' announcement and subsequent Durk retweets, it is believed that Montana's imprint is through Def Jam Records, where one of his mentors, Rick Ross, is signed. Lil Reese is currently also backed by Def Jam, who has faced some criticism after Reese's legal troubles involving the videotaped assault of a woman.
