June 5 is coming sooner than you think.
After dropping three good albums (yes, albums) already, what does K.R.I.T have in store for his major label debut? Check out the tracklist, and I’m assuming he produced the bulk of this shit, if not all of it. That’s a cost-efficient strategy.
Just like in ’96 and ’08, it’s about to be a Nas summer. Oddly enough, this will be the third time he’s dropped an album during an Olympic summer. Although Nas is my favorite rapper, I don’t think he ever thought about that. The weed be lettin’ you know, but….nah, not here.
Anyway, his next single “Daughters” will drop on May 1. Here’s the artwork, and below is Nas announcing the album’s release date via Twitter. I’ve said in the past that I won’t believe it’s actually coming out until I get a release date, and now I have one.
Here’s the art for Wiz’s new single “Work Hard, Play Hard,” which he premiered in San Fran last week. O.N.I.F.C is set to drop in August, and it will shit on Rolling Papers.
Eager to see the video for this shit.
If you’re still wondering who the fuck Chief Keef is, he’s a real-life rap version of Lil Ze’ from City of God. This kid might be one of the hardest ninjas out, and he’s like 16. I first heard of him when Andrew from Fakeshore Drive listed him as one of the 10 rappers from the Chi to watch, and since then he’s made his way to Gawker and now Kanye’s stamped him.
If he survives the year, he has the potential to be like Wacka. Hopefully, you como my se llama.
Spitta’s new album will be in stores June 5 I believe, but the tracklist has already surfaced. Wiz is on here twice, and that’s the closest fans might get to a How Fly sequel. Below, see the video for “What It Look Like,” the lead single featuring Wale. It’s definitely a Wale song featuring Curren$y, but it’s about as commercial as Spitta’s gonna get….
Regardless of how you may feel about it, I like the move.
This team is pretty strong, and now they have two legendary in-house producers. Personally, I’m just looking forward to hearing new music from The Abstract.
The album: June 5.
The tour: April 19.
