Rap Release Dates: Lecrae, Sam Sneed, Talib Kweli, Atmosphere, Murs

Murs & Terrace Martin form a group called Melrose, Lecrae takes the lead this week, with Pittsburgh O.G. Sam Sneed and Kweli coming, and details emerge from Rhymesayers on upcoming release dates.

Before implementing Population Control, Statik Selektah and Freeway go Statik-Free in 24 hours, as Jay-Z and Kanye West Watch from The Throne in early March. In addition, Raekwon hopes to go two-for-two in October, while Curren$y, Drake, E-40, and Snoop Dogg stake out the second quarter.

    Pete Rock & Smif-N-Wessun [March 15]? I know G Rap ain't tryina push dat RRR shit back...where the fuck is Game at, RED shit? Ma man Gibbs & Nipsey Hussle??


    Memo to PREMO: Did you not hear the impact that BUCKWILD & CELPH TITLED made with that album. Use "Beats that collected dust Part 2" and have Royce rhyme over those, don't just do an instrumental.. Again, the concept is having an EMCEE rhyme over beats that were actually made in that era..please peep BUCKWILD & CELPH TITLED's album out if you have not done so already..shit is bananas

    • Tidomann

      Mann...just imagine Royce or any one-time Premo collaborator spittin' over his boom bap shit. IT'S OVER, PERIOD!!!

  • Thegiftpromotions

    Seems like Wiz Khalifa aint the only one killing The Black & Yellow for his hood. Rising Icon of 2011- The Gift- Red & Black is rocking all over the Maryland area it's arguably better than Wiz Khalifa's verison http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCk79SBe3mU
