Welcome To 2018!

2018 is here and that means a wave of new music is upon us. DX has compiled a list of 18 highly-anticipated albums expected to see the light of day in the New Year, including a new album from the late Phife Dawg as well as LPs from Lil Wayne and Royce Da 5’9.

One person who is bringing his antics with him into 2018 is Bow Wow. The Growing Up Hip Hop star claimed he didn’t even have to leave his crib to turn up for the New Year because he has a club in his house.

Wrong. He was at So So Def studios and the internet proceeded to clown him after being exposed.
