Originally due Dec. 6, rapper Lil’ Flip’s sophomore Columbia/Sony Music Urban album, “I Need Mine,” has been bumped to Dec. 27. The set features contributions from Nate Dogg, Lyfe Jennings, Mannie Fresh and Scott Storch, among others.
Lead single “What It Do” featuring Mannie Fresh, is No. 79 in its second week on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Lil’ Flip can also be heard guesting on Chamillionaire’s “Turn It Up,” which is No. 48 on the same tally.
“This CD is the best example of where I am right now,” says Flip. “I’ve got records for the ladies. I’ve got street records. Club records. I’m really proud of the album because I’m bringing everything I’ve got and I guarantee that the fans won’t be disappointed.”
“I Need Mine” is the follow-up to 2004’s “U Gotta Feel Me,” which peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
