You have established vets like Snoop Dogg, Maxwell, and Cam'Ron. And everybody in between. It looks like some legendary tours are going down towards the end of the calendar year.

After the Kanye-inspired chaos of last week, the past seven days have been relatively tame in the rap world, with the twin titans of last weekend (TLOP and the substantially less interesting Grammy awards) still dominating the conversation. Spillover aside, we got solid new projects from French Montana, Kirko Bangz, Yo Gotti, Young Dolph, TM88, and Gucci Mane/Honorable C-Note, but no Slime Season 3 just yet.

As if we haven’t received enough music from Currensy in the past couple months, there’s apparently a lot more on the way now, and we’re not talking about his newly-announced joint project with Alchemist either. Late Monday night, the N.O. Spitta announced that he has another mini-effort dropping soon called The Owners Manual (which if you notice is another car reference).

Curren$y took a piss in the mainstream (as he so eloquently put it during an interview with Damon Campbell) when he dropped his latest album, Canal St. Confidential. Now that he's done pissing in mainstream waters, he's headed back to the underground, and working with producer Alchemist comes with that territory.

Hottest Album Covers Of 2015
Hottest Album Covers Of 2015 Dec 22, 2015 at 03:59pm
The Golden Era of cover art likely ended with the rise of CDs. But even with the Golden Age of CDs behind us, cover art still plays a vital role in the listener's consumption of music. Along with the album title, it serves as a sort of opening salvo or prelude that sets the tone for the music itself, and it is often the last image that remains in the listener's mind. It is the face of the music. With that in mind, here our picks for the best cover art of 2015.

Review: Curren$y's "Canal Street Confidential" Dec 9, 2015 at 09:20pm
Curren$y built the foundation of his following on a legendary run of mixtapes that started around the 2008 era. It was seven (count 'em!) tapes of spitting over classic hip hop beats with a fresh flow that poised him to be the next big thing in New Orleans hip hop. Tapes like Higher Than 30,000 Feet, Super Tecmo Bowl, Welcome to the Winner’s Circle, and Fast Times at Ridgemont Fly are still blueprints for what a mixtape should be. They were lighthearted, accessible, and quickly followed up with more material.

After hitting us with a trailer to increase the anticipation and excitement for No Ceilings 2 last night, Weezy F returns this afternoon with a tracklist, so we know it's real. The highly anticipated mixtape will serve as a follow-up to the much-beloved first No Ceilings, and thus it's got quite a reputation to live up too. The tracklist is stacked though, so let's hope Weezy didn't spare quality for quantity.
