weezy was on sportscenter/first take this morning and did some pretty cool shit: released his artwork for the carter V, as well as an october 28th release date. we’ll see if it gets pushed back. regardless, it’s weird feeling excited about a wayne release again.
oh and below the jump, watch weezy freestyle over the sportscenter theme AND complete the ice bucket challenge for ALS, which was also dope of him.
if wiz’s streak holds up, he will be 0 for 3 in good albums and shooting approximately .500 for mixtapes. ‘trap wiz’ was hit or miss, but who knows what will happen with his upcoming LP, blacc hollywood – which drops august 19th.
for now listen to the first single (ICYMI), “kk.”
i’ve been waiting patiently for kid cudi to start releasing music i enjoy again. he’s had plenty of great work in the interim of now and the man on the moon 1 days (“she hates me” for one) but everything else has been pretty hit or miss. the tracks he’s released from this album thus far have been on par with what i’m expecting, though.
anyway, it’s as close to 4/20 as he could get.
get happy, channel 4 newsteam faithfuls. anchorman 2 will hit theaters on december 20, 2013. that\’s right, a whole year from now.
think it\’ll be good? or will that gif above summarize the movie?
after releasing a barrage of leaks and radio rips featuring the likes of heems, schoolboy q, beck and a few solo cuts, glover posts a simple image on his site. july 4th will be when ‘royalty’ (still a tentative title) hits the web. till then, hop to those leaks.
according to lupe’s facebook page, his upcoming LP food and liquor 2: the great american rap album part I will be dropping via atlantic on september 25, 2012. stay tuned for tracklistings and all that, as i’m sure they’ll be announced in the coming months. his first single is already out.
exciting news for dream fans. august 14 will be the official release date of LOVE IV, his fourth official record. that’s only if you don’t consider the freebie 1977 as a studio LP, in which case you’d be silly.
while his proper album, live from the underground, has been pushed back by def jam until june, kritter’s upcoming mixtape will see the light of day on february 20th, with his lead single “i got this,” dropping february 1st. CAN’T WAIT. [SOURCE.]

very excited to see this news. via fakeshoredrive and a warner bros. representative, it seems as though the no i.d. produced instant classic (is it too early to assume? will my foot be in my mouth in a couple of months?) the dreamer, the believer will hit retail on november 22nd, which by most clocks, is just in time for black friday.
according to many sources (including THE source), watch the throne is dropping on america’s independence day – july 4th. quite the statement, huh? regardless, other news tidbits such as jay-z cut his hair (after a customary grow-out while he works on an album) and the subsequent rumored tracklist leave room to wonder. hopefully we get a confirmation up in this b soon.

honestly, it’s been so long since challenger was an idea and a set of downloadable demos, [ed note: one of this blog's first posts!] that i forgot that the band had plans to release it officially. january 25, 2011 is when you’ll see it hit digital retailers and such. i’m hoping that the band decided to re-record em and make it sound aweosme, but i’m sure that’s the type of shit that allows every emo kid to pretend they have to right to get mad about “the demos being better.” either way, i’m excited.
guess i got my foot in my mouth now. lasers IS coming out, and even though it’s not anytime soon, we’re getting a single at the end of the month. i’m good.
according to rap-up.com, kanye’s ridiculously [untitled] anticipated follow-up to 808s will be hitting stores on monday, november 22nd. that’s the monday before black friday. the joint EP with jay-z was rumored to drop on the 23rd; the same week as nicki minaj’s debut, ne-yo’s new album, flo-rida, akon and lloyd banks’ new record. as far as retail weeks go, this week is gonna be huge for hip-hop.
