We have been blessed with many great albums this year and we still have four more months for the rest of the year. With big names like Kanye West, J. Cole and Jay-Z already dropping albums already you would think that there wouldn’t be much left to be excited for… wrong!
Here is a list of albums that MaseTV is currently looking out for before the end of the year:
Drake – Nothing Was The Same
You can say whatever you want about this man but this guy has skills. He might not make the ideal kind of rap we want to listen to but this whenever he drops a track, it is always a banger. Fresh of winning a Grammy for Best Rap Album for Take Care, Drake plans on taking over again when Nothing Was The Same hits stores September 17th.
A$AP Ferg – Trap Lord
Trap Lord was originally suppose to drop in February of this year but after many push backs we have a set date in August 20th. Many club bangers are expected from this album and the beats should be insane. The album will have features from: A$AP Rocky, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, French Montana, Schoolboy Q, Trinidad James, Onyx, Waka Flocka Flame and B-Real.
Schoolboy Q – Oxymoron
Schoolboy Q is about to drop a banger with Oxymoron and we cannot wait. The album does not have a release date yet because Q is still waiting for all the samples to be cleared but once that gets handled we will be blessed with another tough album from TDE. Not much is known about the album but we do have a couple confirmed tracks: “Californication” featuring A$AP Rocky, “Druggys wit Hoes, Pt. Trois” featuring Ab-Soul and “Collard Greens” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
Big Sean – Hall of Fame
Finally Famous had many bangers including: “Dance (A$$)” and “Marvin & Chardonnay” and Big Sean plans on doing things bigger and better with his sophomore album Hall of Fame in which he has already called it a “classic”. “But I don’t want to hype it up too much or anything,” he says. “People hear ‘classic’ and they expect like Jesus Christ to be on there rapping. What I mean by ‘classic’ is it’s a pure body of work; there’s quality songs.” Hall of Fame contains features from: Lil’ Wayne, Nas, Kid Cudi, Juicy J, Nicki Minaj, Miguel, Jhené Aiko and much more. Hall of Fame is set to hit stores August 27th.
2 Chainz – B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time
The man who made everyone want a big booty hoe for their birthday is back and expected to drop his sophomore album September 10th. 2 Chainz might not be the most lyrical but he is one of the catchest and he will have you ‘pull up to the scene with your ceiling missing.’ Not much is known about the album but two tracks that have been released thus far ‘Feds Watching’ featuring Pharrel and ‘Where U Been?” featuring Cap-1.
Pusha T – My Name is My Name
When Pusha isn’t busy with his new relationship with Kelly Rowland he makes really dope music. My Name is My Name does not have a release date yet but that is because Pusha and his team is making sure that this album lives up to the hype. Some tracks that are confirmed for Pusha’s solo debut are: “Nostalgia” featuring Kendrick Lamar, “Pain” featuring Future, “Who I Am” featuring 2 Chainz and Big Sean and “Number on the Boards”
Earl Sweatshirt – Doris
We once use to chant “Free Earl” and now on August 20th we will be getting his debut album Doris. Earl is not only the most lyrical member of Odd Future but one of the most lyrical rappers in the game today. With features including: RZA, Tyler, the Creator, Mac Miller, Frank Ocean and more, we are sure to be given an album that will catch people off guard.
Fabolous – Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power
It has been four years since Fabolous dropped Loso’s Way and later this year Fab plans on releasing Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power. With “Ready” featuring Chris Brown and “When I Feel Like It” featuring 2 Chainz being the only confirmed tracks at this point not much is really known about the upcoming album but the fans are still highly anticipating Fab’s sixth studio album.
