Static to appear on R&B singer Jarvis' new album

ATLANTA, GA –As his business presence in the world of entertainment continues to expand, DJ Khaled is proud to announce the latest addition to his We The Best Music Group imprint. Khaled, who pulls double duty as president of Def Jam
South, has recruited Atlanta based singer Jarvis as the next star to emerge from the We The Best machine, and the label's first R&B act.

While Jarvis is a newcomer to Khaled's label and he will not be such a novelty to R&B fans. The 21-year-old, gifted with a voice rich and controlled beyond his years, was first introduced to the world six years ago with the release of his debut single "Radio." Released on So So Def in 2004, the single not only grabbed the attention of fans, it also put the industry on notice of what mogul Jermaine Dupri had noticed: R&B's next big star had been discovered. While music business
politics have delayed Jarvis's emergence into the public, he has used his journey, which also included a stint on Ludacris's Disturbing Tha Peace imprint, to continue to hone his skills as he works to develop the next evolution of R&B classics.

For Khaled, the decision to sign Jarvis as his first R&B act, was an easy one. "I didn't know who he was," Khaled confeses. "I prayed for a Superstar and got exactly that in Jarvis. He just hasn't had his chance yet. I heard some of his new records and it was so amazing. I heard the passion. He's young, the girls love him, and I feel like under my brand, whit his hit records, he's about to explode."

Despite his status as a "celebrity DJ," and multi-platinum artist in his own right, Khaled has remained committed to breaking new artists. As a true student of the music business, Khaled also knows that success in today's industry requires patience, dedication, and most importantly hard work. Under the industry veteran's guidance, Jarvis is currently putting the finishing touches on his We The Best debut Cardiology, due out in early 2011. With the assistance of some of the biggest names in contemporary urban music, including The Runners, Static/Major, Rock City and The Bizness, Jarvis is creating a body of work that is sure to stand the test of time. His mission: to be the newest voice to honor the legacy of the R&B greats who inspired him as a youngster, while infusing the genre with all that his generation has been exposed to musically and culturally.

I've heard back in 2005 somebody talk about that "Suppertime Mixtape", but i found it in 2008, & unfortunaly, the mixtape was just available in mp3 format.
Released with no real promotion (but Louisville resident as i know, had this mixtape for a while), i guess lot of us didn't know about it until lately.
This is for the hood lovers, got Lil Flip on it, Young Sears productions, it's OG Music here! We also got Playa songs on it.
I guess Static wanted to give us just a taste of what Suppertime could be, the "Vol. 1" meaned it had to has other volume coming, but for this one like i said, it's OG Music except the last track...

Edit: You can listen & buy the mixtape here

UPDATE: So we…
