    Kendrick Lamar is gearing up to release the sequel to his debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, as you well know. With the release of the untitled album’s first single (or rather "statement") “i” this Tuesday putting everyone in a frenzy, it’s only a matter of time until we get the full product. While Kendrick is a lyrical and creative genius who looks to be a mainstay in hip-hop for years to come, the bar has been set high for his second album.

    Nothing gets us more turnt up than a fire new collaboration between two (or more) dope artists, especially if they haven't made a lot of music together before. Although we haven't quite reached the 4th quarter yet, in terms of music, the past month or two have been big, with a lot of new singles coming out as many rappers prep for their album roll outs. We've been noticing some of the hottest shit coming out is collaborative work, so we figured why not count 'em down?

    We've been scraping up every detail about Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated follow up to good kid, m.A.A.d city, as the details have been scarce. Last week Kendrick's TDE label mate SZA spoke briefly on the album, but as far as the rapper himself, he's keeping everything tightly under wraps.

    Kendrick Lamar is quietly preparing his follow up to the game-changing good kid m.A.A.d city, which we'll hopefully receive soon, not only because the anticipation is high, but also because Lamar may go missing this Halloween. The rapper is set to perform in the infamous Bermuda Triangle this October, a region of the Atlantic ocean known for "mysterious disappearances".

    As if Kendrick Lamar's follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city needed any more hype. Having released this decade's most critically acclaimed album (of pretty much any genre), Lamar barely needs any help from the media on the road to his next project, but hype keeps coming, whether in the form of news about Pete Rock and Dr. Dre's involvement, or from breathless praise from his peers.

    ScHoolboy Q is still on his Oxymoron tip, but that doesn't mean he hasn't started working on his next project. We recently caught up with the West Coast native and found out the album process has begun, although it's in the early stages. After all, he says he just started recording "yesterday" (meaning Thursday September 4th, as we shot this on the Friday). Nonetheless, we're excited.

    Just as a disclaimer, you won't find Detox on this list. We gave up on that a long time ago. We can only assume at this point that Dre is swimming in a literal pool of Apple money somewhere, Scrooge McDuck style. What you will find on this list however is a whole bunch of projects that we cannot wait any longer for, we need them. The anticipation is killing us, and we're tired of the pushbacks and rumors (looking at you, Fif). Hip hop as a genre has been so amazing the past few years, that we can only expect things to keep getting better.

    Though hip-hop artists are currently prone to using the phrase "it's gonna be a movie" when talking about their next project, Kendrick Lamar's semi-autobiographical good kid, m.A.A.d city was one of the few to actually fit that description, detailing a day in the life of a South Central teen. Now it seems as if the project will literally be "a movie," albeit a short one, as Lamar will debut a 14-minute-long film entitled "m.A.A.d" at next month's inaugural Sundance NEXT Fest in L.A.

    Top 10: Rap Interludes

    The interlude has always been an opportunity for an artist to switch up the vibe of their album and transition from one style to another. Sometimes they're musical, sometimes they're a humorous skit (or not so much) thrown in for comic relief. Hip Hop albums have had interludes for a long time, but they're transformed slightly during this current generation of the genre. The skit has almost entirely gone the way of the dinosaur, with very few albums featuring them. However, the musical interlude has flourished, even producing songs that are considered classics.
