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”.
