In a few days or so, I am going to shoot one of my friends for his album/CD. I was wondering if anybody can give me ideas and advice on what and how to shoot the pictures. He's into more of hip-hop style and i was wondering maybe shoot on a studio or something. I need ideas and tips (lighting, places etc.)

Your question is almost too broad to be answerable. Best bet is to cruise the people thread here looking for ideas you can apply. A few days isnt enough to learn portrait techniques generally.

just go for it, back when I was using my minolta, my muscician friend and I were walking up to the dinig hall after a session at a conference center, it began to snow, I turned around and snapped a picture of him while he was walking, midstride, it would make an awesome album cover (he had his guitar case on the side that was showing), unfortunately he is no longer with the band that his case says, so it's not useable, but it still turned out great.
What I am getting at is that don't worry about it too much, it'll happen, just let it flow. I am hoping that the same will happen for me and my first photoshoot that is coming up.
If you are going for something, by all means, try and get the "look" you want, but don't forget that sometimes the shot you want may not be the one you think it is!
