The only thing left to question is if Diddy will hard to promote this adamantly like he did with the “Coco Loso.” In any case, we guess Jenner can add another accolade to binder of boasts.

Days after appearing on KRIS, the Mount Vernon, NY native reunited with his one time partner in rhyme Ma$e at the fourth annual OVO Fest.

The follow-up to 2010′s /\/\/\Y/\ will be released on November 5, according to Pitchfork.

Just yesterday, she threatened to leak the album if she didn’t get a date from her label. “If interscope takes longer i can always leak this next week and make a new one by the time they are ready,” tweeted M.I.A., who is managed by Roc Nation.

She has been in the studio with Hit-Boy and Switch and Surkin, who produced the single “Bring the Noize.”

“It was written in lots of different circumstances, but I guess it’s coming out at a time where I think in America it’s kinda cool to hear something like this,” M.I.A. told Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1. “It’s in keeping with what I released before, so I’m gonna gradually ease people into the new sound as the album goes on.”

In the interim, she has released several tracks including “Only 1 U,” “Doobie,” “atTENTtion,” and an eight-minute mix for fashion house Kenzo.
