Is he on drugs? It is damn near impossible to find him these days.... He isn't even on a chorus on Universal Mind Control. WTF!? seeing him on that holiday jammy pic on bossip really got me scratching my head. I just need another album and chicago concert. I know he has problems with alcohol and loves pot but I hope he ain't on that rock.

I think its pretty disrespectful to assume it's drug related just because he doesn't have music out, if anything I just think his label situation is fucked up, hopefully he's working something out that's good for him.

there's plenty of artists that haven't released something in a long time. look at lauryn. in any case, he would have released "love for sale" in 2006 before it got shelved, and that wasn't that long ago.
it could be a million things. i'm sorry he isn't on UMC but i'm not gonna assume he's on the crack. how do you even know he has a booze problem?

your questions (minus the drug inquiries). You’d at the very least see his myspace page which list his tour schedule or tons of footage of his recent performances via youtube. There have even been posts in OkayArtist of interviews where Bilal says he is currently working on another album. *smh*

I've seen him a couple times in 08 doing live venues, but I'm ready for some new music. Hope the next album wont be shelved because with Anthony Hamilton and Maxwell comin back, all we need is D'Angelo and Bilal back on the scene and Id be straight
19. "how is he making any money????" In response to Reply # 18
If he doesn't bring any merchandise(CDs, t-shirts,hats, etc.) to his shows and his cut as an artist of any venue is relatively small after everyone one else gets their share, how is he making any money??? He hasn't released any music for us to buy in almost eight years so whats the point of touring if he's not planning to release a new CD really soon???
On The Lookout 4: some new music. WTF is going on this year?
