In addition to the rumors, I Need Mine has leaked onto the Internet earlier today (June 27). Some insiders believe it is retaliatory move made by Sony. Representatives for Sony declined to comment.

I Need Mine was slated to have hit stores late last year, but it was pushed back to a May release which also never occurred.

Although details are still sketchy, sources from both record labels have admitted having heard the rumors. However, at press time it is still unclear whether Flip is out of his deal with Sony and if a deal with Warner has been negotiated.

I Need Mine features appearances from Nate Dogg, MJG, Three 6 Mafia and Lil Keke, among others.
