Styles P's Sophomore Set Pushed Back Again

 After seeing his release date pushed back numerous times, D-Block enforcer Styles P is finally gearing up to release his long awaited sophomore LP, Time Is Money.

The disc, which is now scheduled to hit shelves on December 19, will be the follow-up to 2002's A Gangster and a Gentleman. The record was originally slated to drop last year and has since received numerous shaky release dates with none of them delivering the Yonkers-bred MC's new material. The album's supposed lead single, "I'm Black" received a fair amount of radio play last year, as did the single "Can You Believe It" featuring Akon, which a video was also shot for. The release boasts guest appearances by Gerald Levert, Akon, Jagged Edge, J-Hood, Mario Winans, Floetry's Marsha Ambrosius, Rashad, Talib Kweli and The Lox. The album's production will be handled by hit makers Scott Storch and Swizz Beatz among others.

In related news, Styles P has continued to hit the mixtape circuit and recently released a new mixtape in support of Time is Money entitled "Industry Xposure: Close To The Concrete" with DJs P-Cutta and DNS. The mixtape features new and unreleased music and freestyles along with classic material from The Ghost himself.

Time Is Money will hit shelves on December 19 on Interscope Records.
