Webbie, co-author of 2007's hottest rap song, "Wipe Me Down," will release his sophomore album, "Savage Life 2" on February 26. The disc will feature appearances by Bun B, Young Dro, Birdman, Lil Boosie and Foxx. His first single, "Independent" featuring Lil Phat and Lil Boosie, currently sits at No. 11 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Webbie is planning a national promotional tour beginning in late January or early February.

Signing to Baton Rouge, La.'s Trill Entertainment record label, launched by Mel, Turk and the late Pimp C in 2003, Webbie initially garnered national attention with his 2005 single "Give Me That" featuring Bun B. The song peaked at No. 8 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart.

Last year's "Trill Entertainment Presents: Survival of the Fittest" compilation, featuring Webbie, Lil Boosie, Foxx, Shell, Soulja Boy, Lil Phat, Big Head and Mouse has sold 130,000 copies to-date.
