Kane And Abel Ink Label Deal With Elektra

After recently leaving No Limit Records with Master P's blessing, twin rappers Kane and Abel have inked a deal to start their own label, Most Wanted Records, which will be handled through the Elektra Entertainment Group.

The duo are also planning to release a new album, "Rise To Power," on September 21, a record that features such guests as Aaron Hall, Twista, as well as Most Wanted signees Ghinn, Scandalust, and Boss Player. Tracks for the album were provided by Master P's in-house producers, Beats By The Pound.

In related news, St. Martin's Press will also re-release Kane and Abel's novel, "Eyes Of A Killer," this fall, and the brothers plan to issue another book as early as next May.

Meanwhile, the two are waiting for a decision on the motion that a federal drug indictment filed against them in May to be dismissed (see "Kane And Abel Claim Feds Tried To Use Them To Get To Master P").

In the case, Kane

and Abel charge that the feds were trying to build a case against No Limit Records mogul Master P, and vindictively prosecuted the twins when they refused to help.
