Yes, Kanye West‘s SWISH is due February 11th, Drake‘s Views From The Six is coming out “imminently,” and Run The Jewels is set to drop RTJ 3 later this year as well, but we’re not here to tell you about the albums we’ve all been waiting for. In this episode we’re breaking down our least anticipated albums for 2016.
Check out the podcast to hear our panel weigh in on these albums we are having second thoughts about for the upcoming year.
Iggy Azalea – Digital Distortion
The last time we heard about Iggy she was getting berated for everything from her views to her “ignorant art.” Let’s hope that the time she took away from social media served her some good as she readies her sophomore output.
50 Cent – Street King Immortal
50 Cent has remained relevant for everything but his music in the past few years. Simply put, he’s not the hitmaker that he once was and although he showed signs of life with 2015’s The Kanan Tape, it’s going to take a little bit more for this one to come up on our radar.
Kid Cudi – Man On The Moon 3
Kid Cudi has been teasing the sequel to his trademark Man On The Moon series, but he may have lost some after the underwhelming reception to his most recent outputs, most notably Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven which was released late last year.
Lil Wayne – Tha Carter V
If this was the top of 2015 there may be a little more clamor surrounding the fifth installment of Lil’ Wayne’s popular series. But a year has went by and the only thing we’ve gotten from Wayne were a few standout verses, but overall projects that we could do without.
Jaden Smith – TBA
Jaden Smith’s music has peaked the interest of many, but let’s be honest, we’re paying more attention to his eccentric style and comments than anything else.
Fetty Wap – TBA
Fetty Wap was easily the Rookie of the Year last year dropping chart topping and hits all capitalized by a hit album, but do we all believe that he can make this magic happen all over again?
Jay Z – TBA
Jay Z always has more than a fair share of tricks up his sleeve. Magna Carta Holy Grail came off as a celebratory effort more than anything so this is more about the fact that he can end his career on that note and nobody will doubt his legacy.
French Montana – Mac and Cheese: The Album
French Montana is well overdue for this project, but his album cycle seems a bit predictable. Prepare for loads of features and radio hits galore.
Jay Electronica – Act II: Patents Of Nobility
If Jay Electronica finally drops his now urban myth, Act II: Patents of Nobility, but at this point do we really want to do this to ourselves for another year?
