On June 9th they will both be out which means the summer is open for Q.

miicarozej8eyce9cfctThis just in, one of the most anticipated projects of the year is finally dropping from ScHoolboy Q! His upcoming, so far untitled album will release on July 8, which is a little over a month away. Get ready! This album will obviously flow around his anticipated “Groovy Tony” along with the Kanye West-assisted “THat Part.”

Kendrick Lamar is in album mode now because today he announced the release date for his major label sophomore record this afternoon. You can expect K Dot’s next effort to drop at the end of the month on March 23th, with iTunes pre-orders available now. There is no title for the project as of yet, but we can see it will contain 16 tracks. Keep it locked in!

HBK’s own heartthrob P-Lo sat down with Shay Diddy in the studio and broke down the process of making Iamsu!’s hit single “Only That Real” featuring 2 Chainz. He also talks about his upcoming solo album and his thoughts on being both a producer & artist.

The West Coast MC has steadily been building his fan base from the ground up, expanding his reach from the streets of Crenshaw and Slauson to around the country. His popularity was strong enough that last year for the release of his latest mixtape Crenshaw, he started the Proud 2 Pay campaign, where he sold hard copies of the project for $100 dollars each. Crazy, right? Jay Z liked the approach so much that he bought a 100 copies of the album, totally a price tag of $10,000. -XXL[more…]

Fast forward to now, Nip announced last week that he is dropping Mailbox Money, the “album before the album,” some time this month to prepare fans for the ‘Victory Lap,’ which drops early 2015. He insists that this is far from a mixtape and will sell 100 hard copies of Mailbox Money through P2P for $1,000. XXL spoke to Nip on the phone over the weekend to ask about the increase in money from last year’s P2P campaign, what exactly “album before the album” means and how it feels to see that his debut album is finally being released. —Emmanuel C.M.
