We have now entered the 1st Quarter of 2013. It’s an arguably confusing time to be releasing music, considering artists now feel that have an entire year’s worth of leeway to drop their projects so dates are always subject to change. With A$AP Rocky’s LongLiveA$AP coming next week, the year is already off to a strong start. Those expecting Joe Budden’s No Love Lost on January 22nd will have to wait a few more weeks. The project was moved to February 5th, sharing that date with Brotha Lynch Hung’s Mannibalector. A week before that though, we see Dead Prez bringing Information Age, the same date as Ill Bill’s The Grimy Awards, Uptown XO’s digital release of Colour de Grey and Oh No’s Disrupted Ads. Jumping ahead to March, Tyga finally plans to bring Hotel California, though no set date has been announced. Raekwon is also prepping F.I.L.A. (Fly International Luxurious Art) and Danny Brown is almost done with Old; details coming soon.
