December 14, 2009:
Today Lloyd releases his first “post Murder Inc.” project, a FREE 8-song EP titled, Like Me: The Young Goldie EP, available for download via his blog at YoungGoldie.com. An impressive lineup of artist and producers were assembled to complete the project, including Lil Wayne, Drake, Bun-B, The Runners, Cool & Dre, Nicki Minaj, J. Holiday, and others. The lead single “Pusha” with Lil Wayne is quickly spreading across the country.

Of the EP, Lloyd says, “Some of the songs are personal to me. I’m speaking about life experiences, and taking it back to the beginning.” He went on to say, “We wanted to show people things that they’ve never seen or heard from me before... from the music to the artwork.”

Not only are some of the songs more personal than what Lloyd fans may be use to, the EP’s design includes several photos of a young Lloyd, adding a piece of his personal history to every download.


Lloyd continues to work on his 4th studio album due out in 2010, and can be heard assisting Lil Wayne, Drake and the rest of the Young Money crew on their new hit single “Bedrock”.

(Shout out to Brian at Concreteloop)

After freeing himself from The Inc., Lloyd is still keeping it moving. After the release of his last studio album, 2008’s Lessons In Love, we learned that is set to release an independent EP project this December.


When asked about the project, here’s what Lloyd had to say:

“Some of the music is a lot more personal than in the past. It’s about my life. I wanted to tell my own story instead of letting others define who I am.”

"Like Me: The Young Goldie EP" is coming in December! Cover revealed!


Lloyd is set to release an independent EP project this December titled Like Me: The Young Goldie EP. Of the project, Lloyd says, “Some of the music is a lot more personal than in the past. It’s about my life. I wanted to tell my own story instead of letting others define who I am”. The EP will feature the new single, “Pusha” feat. Lil Wayne (produced by The Runners), plus 6 additional tracks with appearances by Bun-B, J. Holiday, Nicki Minaj, Juelz Santana, Richboy, Drake and others.

Enjoying his independence for now, Lloyd plans to partner with another major and finalize plans to release his yet untitled fourth studio album in 2010. “We’ve already begun working with Jim Jonsin, Cool & Dre, Rico Love, Rodney Jerkins and others,” he says. Lloyd added that he is eager to break new ground and explore opportunities that will take his career to the next level and supply his fans with more great music.

My Letter to the People #1:

We've all endured our share of hardships in life. Growing up fatherless is a pain that I can personally relate to. I’m taking it upon myself to play a larger role in my community and be a more active role model for fatherless children, and for the community as a whole. If I'm coming to your city, and you would like me to visit your school, Boys and Girls club, or other organization, Tweet me at www.Twitter.com/Lloyd_YG or e-mail me at info@younggoldie.com.

It’s not all a bout selling records. As celebrity figures, it’s up to us to encourage not just the kids that look up to us, but the men and women that we influence as well. But you don’t have to be a celebrity to give back. Sharing your story can be the inspiration that someone else needs to get through their tough times. Growing up without a father, I didn’t have a positive male figure in my life when I needed one most. I had a strong mother and a passion for music that helped to fill my void. I turned the negative energy into creative energy and drive. Let nothing hold you back.

What's one hardship that you've had to endure and overcome in your lifetime? Please share your story with me.

Video: Lloyd discusses possible Young Money deal with Jenny Boom on Hot 93.7!! Also speaks on The Inc., Ciara, and new EP project!!

October 23, 2009:
Last Week, Lloyd stopped through Hot 93.7 in Hartford, CT and opened up to radio personality Jenny Boom about the possibility of a new record deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money. When asked if he was going to sign to Young Money, Lloyd said... “I think that’s the question on everybody’s mind... including mine”.

He went on to say, “I wasn’t offered a deal. If anything, I think about it because I’m a big fan of their work, and we’re all good friends. We worked a lot in the past, broke bread together. And I think a lot of the fans probably want to see that.”

A very open Lloyd, also answered questions about The Inc., and cleared the air regarding his Ciara comments. He also discussed recent collaborations and gave details about his upcoming EP project titled Like Me releasing this year.

You can catch Lloyd featured on the new Young Money single “Bed Rock”, and on his new single “Pusha” featuring Lil Wayne.

Setting the record straight on my Ciara comments in Hip Hop Weekly...

Let’s set the record straight on my “Hollywood B*tches” comment in Hip Hop Weekly. I said what I said and I stand by it. But read exactly what I said, then judge me. The truth is, I don’t fuck with Hollywood B*tches (or Hollywood Ni**as for that matter). No, I’m not calling Ciara a b*tch, I’m saying that I think celebrity status changed her for the worse, and because of that, we don’t get down anymore.

Yesterday I spoke to CiCi for the first time in years. I called her to explain my comments and to let her know how I felt about the situation. We had a good one-on-one conversation that will remain between us. I respect and I love CiCi like family, but sometimes family are the only ones that will tell you the truth. I’m sure I could have found a better way to tell her, but what’s done is done. We're moving on.

The funny thing is, this Ciara question was the last question in the HHW interview. At first, I lied and made up some answer to make it seem like we were still cool. But when I hung up the phone, I felt like I shoulda just kept it real, so I called back and answered the question honestly. Maybe a little too honestly. But fair is fair, if I start acting Hollywood, someone that knew me before the fame should call me out too. I wish CiCi the best.

Shout out to Dave Mays and Hip Hop Weekly. Peace.

We here at DJBooth don’t like to brag, but we’re kind of a big deal. Lloyd ’s track Pusha received such a highly positive response on the Booth, including staying at the top of our charts for several weeks, that Lloyd’s camp decided to release it as a single with the addition of…wait for it…
