Praise God! PRAISE GOD!!! I never thought I'd see it to this day... Today I celebrate 5 years of sobriety. That's 5 years clean and sober from all drugs and alcohol, and I give all the glory to God. I wouldn't have been able to have done it without him. On this special day, I would like to announce the name of my next project. This summer I will be releasing my 2nd LP titled "SOBRIETY DATE". I want to say thank you to all my friends and fans who have supported me along the way of this journey. You all are truly amazing people. Please spread the word about the project, and stay tuned! Love ya'll! Yeeeeee!
It has been announced!!! Timbaland is set to produce Justin's next album! JT's first single was set to realease at 9:01am today featuring Beyonce and Hov, but unfortunately it has been pushed back to Sunday. We will all have to just wait a little bit longer to get the long awaited new material from Justin.
"It feels so wrong interviewing an up-and-coming rapper in a coffee shop overlooking the sparkling ocean. But focusing on hip hop's gritty urban roots is a problem for me, not the poor guy I'm teasing.

Being a musician is a tough road. And it's not any easier when a columnist ignores that art isn't a state of place but a state of grace – especially for a rapper who narrowly escaped a prison sentence. If keeping it real is what hip hop's about, then Guidry has a promising career. Consider this lyric from his song, "Dancing in the Shadows," a rap about battling addiction after his father's death: "It's sickening to think of me stickin' a needle in my arm just trying to get lifted.""
