With only two weeks left in August, there’s still enough heat to keep the last moments of summer going. Today, Game drops his long overdue The R.E.D. Album (check out the review and snippets ), while Pusha T delivers Fear Of God Part 2: Let Us Pray. On the indie-side, Apathy brings Honkey Kong (check out the teaser and the DJ Premier produced “Stop What Ya Doin” with Celph Titled) as J-Live drops S.P.T.A. (Said Person Of That Ability).

Next week, Lil Wayne takes over the start of the week, as Tha Carter IV will meet a surprising Sunday release on August 28th. His track “She Will” with Drake brought over a few remixes (most of which were taken down due to copyright infringement – sorry Rick Ross and Busta Rhymes ). However, Trey Songz brought his own sauce to the party with his Trigga Mix . The next day, August 30th packs a ton of new material from some unsung heroes of Hip Hop. Blu will bring the holy J e s u s, while Glasses Malone’s Beach Cruiser will finally see the light of day. His official single “Dope” dropped last month, but a Cruiser extra “211” surfaced last week. While Soopa Fly, Ja Rule, and Timbo King (check “High Ranking” with R.A. the Rugged Man) also see releases, the most anticipated is probably Smoke DZA’s Rolling Stoned. DZA has been dropping Rolling Stoned tracks left and right, most recently “4 Loko” with newcomer ASAP Rocky and “On the Corner” with Bun B and Big K.R.I.T. (produced by K.R.I.T.).

September has a lot to look forward to, especially with the release of J. Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story arriving September 27th (check out DX’s preview of the project). Cole no longer shares that release date with Yelawolf’s Radioactive (and the single “Hard White” with Lil Jon), as Yela pushed his album back to October 25th. Before that, Drake’s Take Care pops up (recent leak is “Headlines” ) on October 4th with Maino, Exile and Freestyle Fellowship, while Cam and Vado take over with Boss Of All Bosses 3 a day later. By the end of October, producer Statik Selektah – who has been a mixtape staple – will being his own album Population Control to the forefront. Bring on the Fall!
