Faith-EvansFaith Evans the wife of rap legend, the late great Notorious Big aka Biggie Smalls recently put out a new record, the first in over 5 and a half years. Distributed by E1 / Koch which has become home to many rap veterans and legends, the album hit number 1 on the Independent Albums chart. This is Faith's first release since her departure from Bad Boy Records.

The former first lady of the game got a little help from her friends like Wu Tang Clan’s Red Man and Raekwon, West Coast King Pin Snoop Dogg, Keyshia Cole and R&B singer Kelly Price all chipping in with some verses and rhymes. The lead single Gone Already hit the airwaves and got good airplay and even made the Bill Board Top 30 chart.  

In an era and a time where Hip Hop/R&B has changed so much with so many new stars, styles and the domination of the Dirty South, she managed to hit 24 grand in her first week which is very respectable considering how difficult the times are and the problems in the music business at the moment.  

Prior to this, Faith had had a turbulent time in her personal life battling addiction and an illness.

This truly is a record for those who like good old R&B. All you die hard Faith fans out there; this is one you should all pick up.
