It seems that everything producer Alex Da Kid and and singer/song writer touch in Hip Hop goes Gold or Platinum. They already had worked on chart toppers from B.O.B., Eminem, Diddy-Dirty Money and Dr. Dre. Now the hits will continue to come. Skylar and Alex worked on the second single from Lupe Fiasco’s forthcoming Lasers album, called “Words I Never Said.” It will follow the album’s first single, “The Show Goes On.” Lasers is due in stores  on March 8th. Lupe began recording the album in 2008 and the album’s release date had continued to be pushed due to a change in direction in the album’s production. The album was originally intended to be a triple disc final album from him. But his contract with Atlantic Records didn’t allow him to retire and the project was shelved.

The delay was put to a stop however when Lupe fan, Richard Barker started an online petition with the help of Lupe fan site, the LupEND Blog, demanding that Atlantic Records release the album that would become Lasers.

Another new hit song Skylar and Alex had helped put together was the song “Castle Walls” by T.I. featuring Christina Aguilera, found on his No Mercy album. By now many people agree that it is one of the stand out tracks from the album, but what some may not know is that the song originally belonged to Sean “Diddy” Combs, for his album Last Train To Paris with Dirty Money.

T.I. revealed the history behind the song in a December interview with MTV.com

“A funny thing about this record: It belonged to my big homey Puff first, Puff, he acknowledged it, ‘Yeah, this is my record, but you know what, I think this is a better fit for you. I think you should rock out on this one. I think this speaks volumes to where you are, what you going through, what you living and how you feel.’ ”

No matter who is rapping the lyrics on these songs for Lupe and T.I., the work of Skylar Grey and Alex Da Kid shines through! Congratulations to them once again!
