Upcoming Albums — Future x Meek Mill x Kendrick Lamar

future-honest-coverFuture recently released the new artwork upcoming album titled, Honest, formerly titled Future Hendrix. In an interview with ELLE he talked about the new direction of the album:

I started going in another direction after I made the ‘Shit’ record. It just flipped the whole album. I got in a whole other mood when I went in the studio. I just started recording, recording, recording as much as possible. I just got in a great zone. I was able to capture the best moments. It helped me make a classic album. It’s just going to be very timeless.

The album and previous artwork were expected to be released 11.26.13, but has since been delayed. There’s no word on when the album, or track listing, will surface.

meek-millMeek Mill is up at bat for his sophomore album set to be titled, Dreams Worth More Than Money. The title coincides with his 2012 debut, Dreams and Nightmares. In an interview with Rap-Up he briefly discussed what fans could expect on the album:

You can expect just quality music. You know me, I’m a street rapper. I come with that street shit, so I’m just comin’ with that onanother level right now and takin’ them to a different place.

The album is set to drop sometime this summer. No official date just yet.

BlackHippyFollowing his Grammy and All-Star performances, Kendrick Lamar has announced that he has a new album in the works as well as a joint album with Black Hippy (Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock). His yet to be titled album was set to be released sometime in September. In the recent Kendrick / Schoolboy Q Billboard cover story, this was written at the end of the article.

In 2014, TDE hopes to lock and load its most ambitious slate of releases: Rashad and the label’s first nonrap signing, New Jersey-based female singer-songwriter SZA, will be coming with albums, as will original team members Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. Meanwhile, Free thinks the long-awaited debut from Black Hippy – the supergroup featuring Lamar, Q, Rock and Ab-Soul – is likely to appear in 2014; Tiffith indicates that TDE is planning to release a new Lamar album this coming September, too.

Single Review: Trey Songz x Young Jeezy, ‘Ordinary’

I DO NOT LIKE THIS SONG! Let’s just get that out the way. I am SO SICK of hearing the same basic music about the club, different checks, and hearing n*gga in every other word of a verse/hook. I have nothing against Trey Songz steering away from R&B. He’s an artist and as an artist he has the creativity to do that. At the end of the day he’s an R&B artist, but he went for more of that club / hip hop route since Passion, Pain & Pleasure. Chapter V really touched on that. I am a Trey Songz fan. I have been in love with his music since I first saw the video for ‘Gotta Make It.’ Now it’s just like he’s lazy or something. He just puts music out and the concept is what? Picking up a chick in the club? I’m not impressed and I know that Trey Songz can make better quality music than this. As a fan I’m not expecting him to make love songs all the time. I’m not expecting every song to be a ballad, BUT conceptually he needs to get back to what he started with. Featuring a rapper on the track does not guarantee radio play.

This track is as ‘ORDINARY’ as it gets. Trey Songz sings about a girl. Insinuates a possible threesome. Talks about taking a girl home, his sex game, Jeezy starts rapping, BLAH BLAH BLAH! It’s boring, there’s no story. The song is the typical club type formula. Meet girl, flirt with girl, get another girl, take girl home, have sex, move on to the next. It’s degrading yes, but it’s beyond degrading that gets me about these R&B singers.

To sum it all up, Trey Songz can do better, he’s written better, he’s a better artist, and if THIS is what’s on his next album, I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING!
