UNIVERSAL CITY, California — Everybody in the club gettin' ... sensitive?
Yes, the man behind the party anthem "Tipsy" is going soft. For his follow-up single, the St. Louis rapper is releasing the slow-flowing "You & Me."
"That's a real laid-back ballad, for the women and all that," J said recently. "I get sensitive too."
In "You & Me," J-Kwon spends each of the three verses looking back at the good and bad times he had with three different ladies. "Both my baby mamas and my ex-girl, I put it all in one song," the 18-year-old rapper said.
J is shooting the video later this month in Los Angeles, although he's not sure what the concept will be just yet. "[My manager] takes care of that," he said. "I'm just gonna show up and get my cool on." A spokesperson for his label also had no details on the video.
Along with continuing to promote his debut album, Hood Hop (see "J-Kwon's 'Tipsy' Road To Success Included Mooning L.A. Reid, Mocking Dupri" ), J-Kwon is reading scripts and hoping to shoot a movie in the fall.
"Y'all are going to be checking me out in the movies soon," said the rapper, who idolizes Denzel Washington. "I don't want to do [straight] comedy, I want to do comedy slash drama slash anything. I'll do horror, whatever."
J is also planning to get in the studio as a producer and already has his first target — JoJo (see "JoJo Going Hip-Hop, And Maybe Even Hollywood" ). "I like her song," he said. "I wanna do some like pop slash rap."
