The first week of July brings with it some of the summer’s hottest releases.

Most of America will be celebrating Independence Day on Thursday. However, many others will be celebrating the release of Jay-Z’s twelfth studio album. Hova will officially release his upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail to the public on July 4. Recently, the tracklisting from the album and some lyrics were released to the public.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native Wiz Khalifa recently announced that he’s working on his third major label album and revealed the title of the project as well. Taking to Twitter, Wiz said that the title would be called Blacc Hollywood. Previously, the Taylor Gang CEO had also said he planned to drop the album this year.

Janelle Monae’s upcoming album The Electric Lady will hit retail shelves on September 10. Janelle and Atlantic Records recently delivered a new single “Dance Apocalyptic.” The project will feature music industry icon Prince.

Crooked I has been in the Hip Hop game since the 90s but has never officially released a solo full-length LP. Soon, that will change. The former Death Row Records hopeful-turned-Slaughterhouse member has finally announced the release date of his debut album, pinning July 30 the drop date for Apex Predator.

Devin The Dude announced the title of his eighth studio album. While no date is official the project is projected to release in September. Devin took to Twitter recently to announce the news.

Webbie announced that he’s dropping the fourth installment of the Savage Life Series. The Baton Rogue, Louisiana native has announced plans to release Savage Life 4Ever on September 1. Also, Webbie, Lil Boosie, Lil Phat, Lil Trill, Foxx and the other members of Trill Fam have announced the “Respect Is A Must” Tour.
