Mike Jones says he is planning to release his new album in 2014. Who? Mikes Jones. WHO? MIKE JONES. You would of thought Mike Jones was never coming back since since his last album release back in 2009. But Jones spoke with XXL in a recent interview and explains the reason why he hasn’t released an album in so long.
“Fighting politics, learning politics,” Jones said. “It was just a lot of misunderstandings. In ’05, the proof was there—I mean the numbers, the name. I guess in ’06 people wasn’t ready for R&B type of music. ‘Cuddy Buddy’ was ’06, ‘Next To You’ was ’06. Then it was still street music. They wanted more ‘Still Tippin.’ They didn’t want no ‘Cuddy Buddy.’ They didn’t want no ‘Next To You.’ Two to three years later, it [was] all about R&B. The momentum got slowed down fighting politics. A label that I thought was going to be down with whatever I’m coming with, especially when I did 2.5 [million] out the gate. Y’all pushing people who not even selling a million.”
Mike Jones also is expected to released Money Train, which he said is a movement, a mixtape that will include “everybody that is about to make money.”
“I gotta let y’all know where I been,” he says. “I gotta let y’all know what I can do and what I been doing. It’s just stuff people got to know.”
Stay tuned for future released from Mike Jones.
