Nat from 3OH!3 explained on “The Ralphie Radio Show that “Hey” is a cut from Lil Jon’s forthcoming LP, and the version obtained by “The RRS” is missing Jon’s verses.

Did Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman need another reason to drink? Eh, probably not. But that doesn’t stop the band from turning March 3 in to an annual party day. Yes, the band 3OH!3 considers 3/03 its personal day of homage.

“You might as well create another drinking holiday for yourself,” Motte said on “The Ralphie Radio Show”, taking some time from the festivities to call in to “The RRS” on the band’s day of celebration. The group also planned a uStream chat with fans later. “There’s all those Hallmark holidays that they created, why can’t we make our own?”

Looking back on the band’s past 365 days, there’s a lot they can drink to. “Don’t Trust Me” hit the top of the radio charts over the summer – as Motte and Foreman toured the country headlining the Vans Warped Tour. Just a year prior, they played the festival in near-obscurity, covered in the shadows of other bands who were receiving mainstream radio love: We The Kings, Gym Class Heroes, and Katy Perry. 3OH!3 befriended the latter artist and received her help to in remixing its second single, “Starstrukk”.

Now, the Colorado natives prepare for a busy spring – a cross-country trek with Cobra Starship and Travie McCoy of the aforementioned Heroes. 3OH!3 is also in the studio finishing Streets of Gold, the follow-up album to Want. While all of this takes place, Ke$ha’s “Blah Blah Blah”, a track they’re featured on, climbs up the charts.

“It’s cool. Yunno, it’s a different sounding song for a girl,” Nat noted of the Benny Blanco production. “It’s like, real sassy and she raps on it. So, I think it’s great. It bodes well for her… hopefully it’s a good sign for us.”

Working on the forthcoming LP prevented 3OH!3 from making it back to the 303 – Boulder, Colorado – Nat revealed that the group is currently in the studio with hit-maker Dr. Luke. Motte hopes to drop a single to radio right around the tour’s launch date, with an album release tentatively scheduled for late June.

And if you’re holding out for some type of last second surprise – an album release that coincides with Warped Tour dates – well, don’t hold your breath.

“Honestly, I’ve spent my last two summers in parking lots, so I’m a little excited to get out,” Nat admitted, while also crediting the summer shows with building their road experience. “It was a great tour for us man. We’ll miss it a little bit, but yunno, I think we’ll manage to have good shows and hopefully people that go to see ‘Warped’ will come to check us out.”

T.I. is recording material for a new album, and according to one artist he collaborated with, is in good spirits as he prepares new tracks for his forthcoming LP.

“Oh yeah, he’s definitely got a lot to prove,” remarked B.O.B. The Atlanta emcee is signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle label, distributed by Atlantic. “(He has) a lot of motivation.”

Authorities released the “Live Your Life” rapper from prison to a halfway house last December. T.I., real name Clifford Harris, is permitted to leave the house on weekdays for work purposes, but must return by evening. Jim Jonsin, who has produced a plethora of hits, including “Whatever You Like”, is also confirmed to be working on the project. T.I. will leave the halfway house on March 26.

On Monday, after the interview with B.O.B, T.I.P made his first public appearance, at a charity event organized by his fiancée, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. He also created a Twitter account. Already “Verified”, there is only one tweet from username “Tip”, a tease for a “major announcement” coming next Monday at T.I.’s website, trapmuzik.com, with the hash tag “#kingsback.”

“We actually got in the studio recently, recorded a track for his album,” B.O.B said on working with the head of his label. Although later he clarified that the song may not appear on T.I.’s album, but will see the light of day in some form or fashion.

B.O.B’s LP, B.O.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, hits stores on April 27 – actually pushed up from an original May release date due to the success of the single, “Nothin’ On You”, which features Bruno Mars. The emcee is currently on tour with Lupe Fiasco.

The twin brothers from South Florida that comprise New Breed called in to “The RRS” to chat about the hip-hop group’s new single, “Get Away”. The track features Sean Kingston on the hook, and samples Madonna’s 1983 hit, “Holiday”.

Calling in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” yesterday amid reports that he had been pistol-whipped at a house party over the weekend, Yung Berg denied that the incident happened. The “Sexy Lady” rapper claims that he has been at The Palms in Las Vegas since last Friday, recording new material for a forthcoming LP due out later this year.

“Really, I don’t understand what that’s all about,” said Berg, real name Christian Ward. “I’ve been in Vegas, down here recording for the last five, six days. But I mean, I’ve seen people say so many different things about me or say different things about other artists that at that point man you just gotta take it with a grain of salt and keep it moving.”

TMZ.com cited “law enforcement sources” in an article posted on Wednesday that claimed Berg attended a house party in Los Angeles on Monday. According to the article, four men carrying weapons entered the party around 2:00 A.M., stealing $10,000 in cash and jewelry. TMZ reports that Berg was one of the people robbed and beaten.

Berg simply replied “Yeah” when asked later if he was denying that the reported incident on Monday happened. Brought up a third and final time in the interview, the rapper replied, “Nah, I’m safe and sound, lookin’ beautiful. You can check me out on YouTube if you wanna see me.”

Still at The Palms, Berg says that he’s working with production company partner Rob Holliday on new music, which will also be released on a couple of forthcoming mixtapes in addition to his new album.

Berg also chatted about his new track, “What You On”, and the song’s interesting sample. Take a listen here:
