MIMS Plays With the Big Boys, Readies New Album
While MIMS didn't win the VMA for Monster Single of the Year with his smash 'This Is Why I'm Hot,' (for those keeping score, Rihanna's 'Umbrella' took the honor) the rapper truly believes a time-honored nominee cliche. "It's just an honor to be nominated," he tells Popeater. "I was nominated with a bunch of great artists -- Timbaland, T-Pain. I'm playing with the big boys. Next year I'll come back and get it."
To that end, the rapper is working on both his next album, which he says is due in March of 2008, and a remix collection of songs from the 'Music is My Savior' album. As to what fans can expect of the remix album, due in December, he says, "If anybody knows what I did with the 'This is Why I'm Hot' remix with Junior Reid and Cham, they know that I like to bring it to different areas, different islands, different cultures. I want to hear something different. I might do something with an international artist or a pop artist. You never know."
