M.O.P. has always maintained a steady buzz in the underground. They have even managed to break through into mainstream every now and then throughout their career. As a duo, Billy and Fame have been a formidable posse, but now, they are going solo for '08. Recently, the two spoke about this and other future projects.
Even though they are going solo for a short period of time, no one should worry about any beef or break up between the M.O brothers.
"I'mma be working with Billy, he's doing my album," Fame told MTV.
"I'mma be working with Fame, he's on my album," Billy chimed in.
They are still working on their M.O.P. album, though.
"It's been some time since M.O.P. been out, so we wanna make sure everybody gets what they expect from M.O.P. Anything that comes after [as far as collaborations], if it adds [to what we're doing], then we're down with it. It just gotta work. This [new album] right here is something serious. This is something we been doing for years, and people love what we do."
Fans should also not worry about 50 Cent changing M.O.P., even though they are a part of G-Unit.
"One thing about any other artist we been signed to, they signed M.O.P. for what M.O.P. does. They don't wanna tamper with that. They're M.O.P. fans. I appreciate that. There's a lot of artists that's M.O.P. fans, and we're their fans also. We need that to feed off each other."
"We got countless music for the M.O.P. album. . . .Lil' Fame [has been] doing serious production across the board. We have a heavy-metal joint that we're ... putting together with a lot of different artists. ... We're doing about six or seven things, like major things, in one shot," Billy added.
No finalized date has been given as of yet, but expect solo projects and a group project to be out in 2008. http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.6090/title.m-o-p-to-go-solo
