Dana Coppafeel never rests on his laurels.

The veteran emcee finally released his first solo album at the very beginning of 2010 and since then he released a mixtape called "The Feature" and has been steadily working on new material to be released in 2011.

Last week he released a video for a song called "Paradise" that is going to be on his upcoming mixtape release, "Lil Yung."

I also received word from producer Reason that he and Dana have a new project that is in the mixing and mastering process and it will most likely come out sometime in the near future.

Enjoy the visuals.
