As 2012 is getting ready to close out, Chief Keef is just getting started. While Finally Rich was originally being called a “mixtape,” it’s now his “debut album.” The release date is now December 18th and Keef shares that date with T.I.’s Trouble Man. Big Sean fans who expected to hear Hall Of Fame this year will have to wait a little bit longer, as the album has been pushed to 2013. Joe Budden has his A Loose Quarter mixtape dropping this week, but has plans for his album No Love Lost to arrive on January 22nd. As February enters, we get LL Cool J’s Authentic Hip-Hop on February 12th. Hopefully it’s less “Ratchet” than his first single.
