Cudi states the the album is complete and is currently in the mixing and mastering stage before it gets turned in. For fans who enjoy the more traditional hip hop-centric Cudi, he also […]
Good news for Wale fans. With his current success from his Maybach Music debut of Ambition, he has already confirmed that he is two records deep in to his third, untitled album. I’m just speculating (there’s no tentative date as far as I know), but I would expect his third album to be aimed at Early-Mid Summer […]

Looks like Birdman wasn’t lying after all. Following the release of yesterday’s interview where Birdman said Nicki Minaj’s new album is dropping early 2012 with a single as early as New Years Eve, Nicki Minaj sealed the deal. Nicki has announced that her sophomore album will drop on Valentine’s Day (2/14/12) and will be called Pink […]
Granted, you can’t take anything Birdman says seriously when it comes to album release dates, but he seems pretty certain that the material is being prepped for a Quarter 1 sophomore release. Here’s what he told Billboard today: Nicki’s back in the studio, so we’re looking to drop Nicki in the first quarter. We’re really […]
Fans of Childish Gambino who buy vinyl – look out for the album to drop this coming December on the platform. Bought the album this past Friday and I’m liking it a lot. Very entertaining.
Fans of Kid Cudi rejoice. He has announced that his “rock” (influenced) group with Dot da Genius will now be called WZRD instead of Wizard and that their album is dropping on January 30th, 2011.

NO I.D. took to twitter to release the official track list for Common’s upcoming album, The Dreamer, The Believer. Being released on December 20th, I can’t wait to see what Com brings to the table with 12 quality tracks. I’m sure there will be some bonus songs as well via iTunes, etc.
Fans of T.I. won’t have to wait all too long for a new album from the self proclaimed King of the South. T.I. has set a tentative date for the album drop: February 2012. That would mean to expect a single at the top of the year and see how it develops. Read more from […]
With November 21st quickly approaching we have now received the official track list for Yelawolf’s upcoming album, Radioactive. While I want to see this man win, I have a not-so-great feeling that this album will go under the radar. Hopefully not, however. Track list below:

They says of the album: Highlights include Jill Scott’s jive talk on “Trap”, “OJ”, the radio-ready “Leave Ya Alone”, “Smoke And Fuck”, and of course, “I Do”. Needless to say, 3 Stacks and Hov earned […]
