The mastermind behind Maybach Music seems to be slacking a bit. His forthcoming album, “God Forgives, I Don’t”, has been delayed thrice already, with the original release date being set in November of 2011. That came and passed, and The Boss set the release in December 2011. That, too, passed, and Ross announced that the album will be released in the first quarter of 2012. Well, guess what? That’s come and gone too. So who knows when it will drop?
Ross accumulated enough hype with his massive late-2011 mixtape “Rich Forever” to be named MTV’s Hottest MC of 2011, but thus far, Ross has failed to capitalize on that hype by pleasing his fans with an album. The future in unknown for this album…
According to his Twitter page, Kid Cudi’s latest album, WZRD, is set to drop on February 28th. This is to be his first full album since he reportedly quit smoking, according to Cudder’s Twitter, and, also according to his Twitter, the album is going to include zero obscenities.
This going to be Cudi’s first album altogether since he dropped “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager” back on November 9, 2010, and that album was certainly no flop. I thoroughly enjoyed that album, as did most of his fans. Cudi is a whole different type of genre; not quite hip-hop, not quite R&B… Just about the perfect mix. And I hope this album exemplifies that.
Listen to & check out lyrical analysis of the two songs Cudi’s already dropped off WZRD, on RapGenius:
Big K.R.I.T. is, to put it simply, keeping that black soul alive. The mixtape he dropped last year, Return of 4Eva*, was better than most albums recently released. So, if that’s his mixtape material, I can’t wait to hear his album material.
Especially considering that K.R.I.T. is offering, via his website, a pre-ordered autographed album along with a shirt for under $50. An album that is sure to be a classic, autographed by a potential legend, with a T-Shirt, for the price of a video game. I’ll take that. Check out the pre-order opportunity here. The album, titled “4Eva and a Day”, drops March 5th.
