A couple big announcements were made this week regarding album releases.

In one of the biggest album release announcements made in 2013, Eminem announced a sequel to his second studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP. During Sunday night’s MTV Music Video Awards, Beats By Dre released a commercial for Em’s seventh studio album, which was billed as MMLP2 (believed to be an acoronym for Marshall Mathers LP 2). The brief ad also announced that the album would release on November 5.

Drake will now release his third studio album, Nothing Was The Same on September 24 . The Toronto native’s original drop date was September 17 but decided to push it back a week. Drake did release the artwork for the album last week giving fans a little something to hold on to until release day.

After a lot of confusion on when Pusha T’s solo debut album would release, the G.O.O.D. Music artist recently straightened it all out. Pusha recently announced on MTV Rapfix that his album, My Name Is My Name will now release on October 8.

Orange County, New York native, Cage has confirmed that his new album, Kill The Architect will be released on October 22 via Eastern Conference Records.
