The most exciting news this week is perhaps T.I.’s announcement of a Trouble Man release date. Fans will have to wait until September, but Tip plans to drop his 8th album on September 4th. Call that one the Back to School Special. Azealia Banks was making noise for a September debut album, but new music is coming sooner than you think Banks will be dropping a digital release of her 1991 EP on May 29th, following with a physical release on June 12th. Just a few tracks on that, but enough to hold people over. Diplo is dropping an EP that June date too called Express Yourself. While mostly everything else remains firm in Hip Hop, we have some R&B albums coming too. The-Dream will be dropping Love IV MMXII on August 14th, while Ne-Yo will come with R.E.D. on September 18th.
