With the release of his upcoming album Savage Life 4Ever set to drop September 1, Louisiana rapper Webbie is doing all of the customary state-to-state promotion that most artists would gladly trade in for a recording booth or the stage. Yet the 27-year-old, who has found himself on the airwaves again with his latest single “This Is What I Do,” says he has no complaints.
“I’ve been living, man,” a jovial Webbie told VIBE during a press run on the east coast. “I’m in New York just living up.”
By now Webbie has become a master of shaking hands and kissing babies. A veteran in the game since he joined up with Lil’ Boosie on the well-received 2003 collaboration album Ghetto Stories and enjoyed a crossover hit with the 2007 club anthem “Independent,” the rapper claims fans will hear artistic growth on his fourth installment of his Savage Life series. But more importantly, Webbie—who is signed to Trill Entertainment, an imprint that was founded by late UGK member Pimp C—points to a newfound maturity in his private life following a series of legal scrapes and arrests that included a late 2012 charge of battery and robbery.
“They can expect me—just me,” he says of Savage Life 4Ever. “The album is going to be big. It’s just me…no guest artists…just Webbie. I can make words rhyme forever, but I’m trying to master the other part of staying out of jail and all that.” As for the Savage Life title, the rapper points to his volatile past as an inspiration. “When I was young I had my share of savage life,” he says. “That was a name my uncle came up with…We are going to name this album the Savage Life. It was like I was representing Tupac…thug life…that savage life.”

VIBE Reports: There is some talk bubbling around the Internet about Rick Ross finally hitting the big screen—and that is a great thing! Don’t hold your breath for that long-awaited biopic on “Freeway” Ricky Ross blowing out the box office charts. Instead, according to The Wrap, Ross will be regulated to just a character in a feature film based on Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb, who exposed the CIA’s involvement in helping Nicaragua’s Contra rebels import cocaine into California during the 1980s. Webb is slated to be played by Jeremy Renner, while Michael K. Williams is rumored to potentially star as Ross. The new project is based on a novel by Nick Schou entitled Kill the Messenger and will be produced by Focus Features. Homeland’s Michael Cuesta will direct the script penned by Peter Landesman. Ross’ character will be depicted in the film as a wealthy, powerful drug dealer who is in jail awaiting trial. With Webb’s help, he realizes the scope and magnitude of the world he’s involved in and sees just how much of a pawn of the CIA he really is. Williams, who is currently enjoying success as Chalky White on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, recently appeared alongside Dwayne Johnson in Snitch and will soon be seen in the RoboCop remake. Williams also co-stars in Steve McQueen’s drama 12 Years a Slave.Read more
