Just as we do every year, we close out our Year-In-Review lists by giving a rundown of the perspective album releases slated for the new year. Yeah, we probably missed some things, and yeah, 25% of this stuff will not come out. But hey. So here it is, in no particular order…..

    If I was a betting man I would say that these albums won’t come out this year.

  • Dayz says:

    Nice list but please let’s drop Detox as even an option. I won’t believe that album is coming out until I am holding it in my hands, even then I won’t believe it until I it play and I hear it… I am really excited to hear all of Action’s projects and GBC, Demigodz, Celph Titled and Army of the Pharoahs. I agree I don’t see the Nas Dot Com LP ever actually being made. Also hyped on DJ Premier’s LPs with Bumpy and KRS, should be classics. OC and Apollo Brown, wow, that is gonna be dope.
    My pick for LPs not coming out different than anyone elses choices so far is Only Built For Cuban Linx 3 and Q-Tip’s new jawn… And yes Doomstarks ain’t never happening I got over that years ago…
    Also stoked for Brother Ali and hopefully Blu with Madlib will be awesome, Blu is either one of the best or makes lame stuff, very hit or miss after his first couple LPs but hopefully this will be a return to form for him.
