Mayday has been working on its new album, Stuck On An Island, for quite a while now. It was slated for an early May release, but has since been rescheduled to September 7. And since the series finale of popular ABC series Lost has been talked about heavily as of late, Mayday thought it'd be a good idea to release the album's title track.

Called, well, "Stuck On An Island," the song is about Miami, says band member Plex Luthor. If you pay attention to the words, you'll see why. The group also put together a video montage of Lost's first season using the song as the soundtrack for the video as well. [Mayday Online]

Puff Daddy aka P. Diddy aka Diddy aka Ciroc Obama is meddling in the affairs of Miami hip-hop again. Diddy recorded a vlog with Rick Ross and Khaled to let the world know about their "Supreme Team" union. They're seen on video trading affection and trading props - as well as promoting Diddy's June 29 album date and Ross' July 6 album date. [OnSmash]

Jovi Rockwell has landed herself on the hook of Flo-Rida's new song "Fresh I Stay Part II," which also features Lil Wayne. A previous version of the song had Santigold on the hook, but now, Miami-based Rockwell lends her trademark voice and flow to anchor the song for Flo's new album, The Only One. [Y2Kdaily]

99 Jamz DJ and personality DJ Entice is chasing a good cause and using his birthday as a platform to reach it. DJ Entice has teamed up with Charity: Water to raise $5,000 to provide water for 250 people in Africa. Entice says he doesn't want presents or gifts this year, he would just love if you can donate. No matter how little the amount, it'll make a difference. Click this link to for more information. [Charity Water]

We mentioned earlier this week that Trina was nominated for the "Best Female Hip-Hop Artist" category at the BET Awards this year. But we definitely also have to send recognition to Miami native Gil Green, who was nominated for Video Director Of The Year. Gil has stayed busy in the past year and has directed videos for tons of artists and even celebrated his 100th music video mark last spring. We wish Gil much luck and hopefully he walks away with the award and brings it back to Miami. [The305]
