    We're almost mid-August, which basically means summer is almost over. As the summer months wind down, we're beginning to anticipate a few upcoming album releases; more than just a few actually. The Weeknd, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Travi$ Scott and Mac Miller are just some of the rappers prepping anticipated albums for early Fall/end of Summer release. While we look forward to those, we're experiencing a bit of lull with the excitement from the Meek Mill/Drake beef settling down, as well as the excitement from Dr. Dre's Compton release.

Gone are the days where it was nearly impossible to create music without musicians being in the same studio at the same time. Now artists and producers are able to collaborate despite being in different parts of the country, or even across the globe. One can simply email over a verse or an instrumental that can be worked with, and tweaked, into a musical masterpiece. This makes any collaboration possible and has resulted in some incredible creations recently.
