Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone that celebrates it. While the albums out today might not be the most romantic ones to share with your significant other, there are some surprises. Curren$y drops off Muscle Car Chronicles. After many delays, it’s finally here and HipHopDX really liked it (read our review here). Meanwhile, the Jay-Z cosigned Danny! aka Danny Swain brings Payback, along with Ski Beatz’s 24 Hour Karate School Presents: Twilight.

In the land of pushbacks, we were supposed to get Obie Trice’s Bottoms Up at the end of this month. Instead, that album will be arriving on April 3rd so mark your calendars. Likewise, B.o.B. was supposed to deliver Strange Clouds in March. Bobby Ray moved that one over to May 1st. Some new additions made it, though. Melanie Fiona’s The MF Life was originally supposed to come in 2011, but now we can check that one out on March 27th. Before that? Diggy Simmons gets a release date for Unexpected. You can expect that on March 20th with Odd Future’s OF Tape Vol. 2. It’s time to welcome Hip Hop’s new school, everybody.
