It could end up being one of the bigger club records of summer ’10: “I Wanna Get Drunk” by DJ Felli Fel featuring Lil Jon, Three 6 Mafia, and Fatman Scoop. The song basically takes Van Halen’s “Jump” and replaces the title with the word “drunk.” But there’s just one hurdle before party-goers begin drinking to it nationwide.
“Right now they’re in a little kind of ‘dust-em-up’ (with Van Halen’s people) about clearing the record but I think everything’s going to be alright at the end of the day,” revealed Fatman Scoop, who called in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” to promote a party he was hosting Saturday night at the Scranton Hardware Bar. “Hopefully this record is going to be what we think it is, which is like a summer anthem, a get drunk anthem.”

Scoop knows a thing or two about club anthems. But his work has transcended turntables to radio, television, and even a couple Grammy awards. I was interested to know of his thoughts on Drake’s new album, Thank Me Later, which will be officially released on Tuesday. His answer surprised me.
“Most of the time, I don’t listen to albums like that before everyone else,” he responded. “I wanna get it right when everyone else gets it… but what I’ve heard… I can tell you pretty much that he has a good, bright future ahead of him.”
The hip-hop star said he hasn’t crossed paths with Drizzy yet, but figures it’ll happen sooner than later.
