Gnarls Barkley "Run"

According to Billboard.com, the dynamic duo Gnarls Barkley’s sophomore album is near completion. Even though there is no release date, title or additional information about the upcoming release, Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo Green have revealed that the process is nearly complete.

“I’m hoping that I don’t fall out of grace with whatever I’ve done to deserve this to pass through me,” Cee-Lo told Billboard last summer. “So I become concerned with it in that right. It’s not something I want to get in every publication and explain. Music is a natural mystic,” he continued. “This is not something that we contrived. It’s truly something that we just can’t explain, you know what I mean? So why try to explain it at all? It just is.”

Roc-A-Fella Remaining At Def Jam ... For Now

Contrary to online rumors, Def Jam has not dropped the entire Roc-A-Fella Records roster, Billboard.com has learned. Roc-A-Fella artists include Kanye West, Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Tru Life, DJ Clue, Memphis Bleek, Young Gunz and Hector Bambino.

"Beans and Freeway didn't get dropped," says Beanie Sigel's manager, Mark Byers. "I just got off the phone with L.A. Reid talking about the next video for ‘Rain’ featuring Raheem DeVaughn that we're about to release. We're re-launching Beanie's project and releasing a ‘Rain’ remix with State Property."

Roc-A-Fella’s cohesiveness and brand strength waned after its leaders Jay-Z, Damon Dash and Kareem Burke parted ways in 2004. Since then, Roc-A-Fella artists haven't received the same attention as Def Jam stars like Ne-Yo and Rihanna, says an insider.

Jay-Z's inner camp, including A&R SVP Jay Brown and A&R VP Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith, tendered their resignations this month. However, the rest of Def Jam's A&R department is intact. Still, things are tenuous for hip-hop at the company.
