June is closing out on a high note, as today Beyoncé releases 4 and Big Sean drops Finally Famous. On the O.G. circuit, Pete Rock & Smif-N-Wessun arrive with Monumental while Trae Tha Truth comes through with Street King. Fairweather friends of Hip Hop Limp Bizkit even come forth with Gold Cobra.
As July begins, the first album we’re welcomed with is Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne. It’s still up in the air as to whether or not the Roc will own Independence Day. Later in the month, Flint, Michigan’s Jon Connor will drop his iTunes album Salvation along with the legendary Pimp C’s Still Pimpin, both on July 12th. They share space on that day with the re-release of Blackenedwhite by OFWGKTA’s MellowHype, along with Crooked I’s Planet C.O.B. and The Cool Kids’ When Fish Ride Bicycles.
The biggest question for July, though, is will Detox close out the month or not? The world will just have to stay tuned.
