It’s common practice in Hip Hop to turn an imprint label into a crew. While Jay-Z certainly didn’t start the trend, his Roc-A-Fella label definitely assisted it, along with Diddy’s Bad Boy, and the list goes on. This week, we get the second instalment of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group’s Self Made series with Vol. 2. It’s all about the crew love, and Pusha T kept that going, as he announced that Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music compilation titled Cruel Summer will see an August 7th release.

Fans of Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire will be pleased to know that the slightly off-kilter artist will drop an EP called Power & Passion sometime in September. Necro has a digital release coming with The Murder Murder Kill Kill Double EP which we’re now seeing with a July 31st release date. Lastly, producer Bangladesh is prepping his album titled Flowers & Candy. His single “100” features Pusha T, Jadakiss, and 2 Chainz. No firm date is set yet for the release.
