Teairra Mari strikes a fierce pose for fans, on the cover of her new mix tape ‘Unfinished Business’.
Set for a July 4th release, the 11 song outing features appearances from Snoop Dogg, Division 1 Exec Rico Love and none other than the people’s champ 2Chainz.

We can’t wait to hear it!
Our only concern with Mari is how she will fare once album #2 swings by, seeing as so much is riding on its success.
We hope that between now and its release, Team Teairra launch a full on promo assault which will see the starlet develop an installed fan base, ‘make nice’ with a number of radio platforms and develop a forward thinking sound akin to Usher‘s ‘Climax’.
Yes, while ‘panty droppers’ like ‘Lil Mama’ may work in the club, they will not move albums or generate a buzz strong enough to take her overseas.
What she needs- we posit- are singles that sit well on urban and Top 40 radio ( see ‘Right By My Side‘) and catchy fillers.
Catchy enough, to move units even if the consumer is unaware of who she is ( see ‘See It In A Boy’s Eyes’).
