Rap Release Dates: Lil Wayne, Big Boi, J. Cole, Kanye West


Lil Wayne says 2013 for “Tha Carter V,” while Big Boi’s coming in November, as Kanye West has some post-G.O.O.D. music, and J. Cole imports some newness.

We’re nearing the one-year mark that Lil Wayne droppedTha Carter IV. While 2012 will not see a release in Tha Carter series, Weezy recently expressed that Tha Carter V was more than likely dropping in 2013. No said date on that yet, but you can read all about it here. While Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music crew will be dropping Cruel Summer on August 7th, it’s been reported that immediately following that release we’ll be getting another Kanye West solo album. We can only imagine how that will sound, but Kanye tends to never disappoint (his fans at least).

While J. Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story is also nearing a year old, another J. Cole release will be arriving in the form of an import. The release is called Better Than Your Average, and it’s coming for you on August 28th. The 28th is a huge day for music releases, but another import is dropping that day too from Jadakiss called Loyalty Comes First. While it’s already been established that the Summer is bringing hot releases, looking into the Fall there will be just as much to look forward to, especially on November 13th. Big Boi will be dropping Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors that day. Now if we can just get an Outkast album we’ll be all set.
