Joe Young checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@gorillabozzjoeyoung) on Thursday (January 1), promoting the release of his new ‘Great Ape’ mixtape, available for $1.50, which the German rapper says is being done because “it’s a recession going on so I still wanted to provide good music in this time everybody can love and enjoy for an affordable price.” The disc features appearances by Lil Wayne, Akon, Raekwon the Chef, and more.

The year is almost over and we all got older, wiser and the time on this planet is bringing us all closer to our destination. But most of all, its bringing us closer to God. We should all grow in Spirit, Wisdom and Understanding of how things work together for Good for all those wo are in Christ and live life coming closer to God. I’m not perfect and I’m not an Angel but I’m striving for the Betterment of my Soul, Spirit and our environment.
I wish all of you blessed holidays, and peaceful spirits. Let’s all celebrate Christmas in the right state of mind and may God lead us all to the next year in peace… May God have a Hand over all the Activities going on in War zones like Iraq. One Angel for each Solider.
God is Good.

Just came back from the studio. The Album is to heavy for the present and damn sure to Crazy for the Future so its going down in history and the History is my definition of timeless. It’s going to be a timeless Masterpiece that gonna go down in History lol. Mark my Words…Classic. It will be well rounded. I got something for everybody on it with my Stamp dough. Got the Illest Producers on my Joint and the Illes Niggaz spitting Flames. Believe that. But go out in December and cop the New Wu Tang Album…. the craft is crazy. God is Good.

Scott Storch called Timbo a Ni**er?
Man what’s up with that Clown? I mean I don’t like Timbaland’s personality too much but he has done a lot for Music you have to respect. Aaliyah, Missy, Jay-Z, you name em he had them in the studio and here comes this broke as Piano Man calling Tim a Nigga. Get lost with your wack ass man Scotty is over. Pay that man what you owe him if it ain’t money it’s respect and pay your Lawsuit. TELL BRET LEWIS TO HOLLA AT ME ONCE HE TORE YOUR ASS UP IN COURT YO BITCH ASS BUSTER (Sorry for talking reckless but son is a clown for calling a black man a ni**er)
Aftermath Music caught up with Joe Young for a Q&A, asking the German rapper about the concept of the his upcoming record and what kind of vibe it will have. “The concept is simply – Letting people know that Joe Young is still there and that ‘God is Good’. I wanted to create an album thats good in the streets, the clubs, the radios. It’s an universal vibe for universal people. It’s not in one Box this Time. It’s a new way of thinking.” As for the release date: “I’m negotiating the release date right now with my new home, but hopefully still this year.” The full interview at aftermathmusic.com has since been removed.
