SOHH Whatcha Think: New Wale, Drake & Jeezy CD's On Deck: Who Will End 2011 With The Better Album? [Click Here & Speak]
Friday, Oct 7, 2011 12:15AM
Well rap fans, another year is nearing its end: And what a year it's been (thus far). For any fan of Hip-hop, you've gotta admit, we've been blessed with some really cool albums. From Phonte's Charity Starts at Home, to WTT, C4, Sideline Story and a slew of others, the Rap God's saw fit to keep our iPods (R.I.P Steve Jobs) stock-full of bangin' songs.
There are a bunch of albums coming before we officially kick off 2012, but the three most highly anticipated are from MMG spitter Wale Young Money emo kid Drake and ATL rapper Young Jeezy let's take a look at some of the singles from each artist as we pose the question, which of these highly-anticipated releases with be the best?
Drake - Take Care
In stores: 10.24.11
In a few short weeks, rap's most sensitive spitter will release the follow-up to his platinum-selling debut, Thank Me Later. There's no doubt this joint will move units, but will Drake be able to prove that disc number one was not a fluke? Ask me later.
Wale - Ambition
In stores: 11.1.11
"Lotus Flower Bomb" may sound like a Chun-Li super combo move, but in reality it's a single from Wale's upcoming album, Ambition. Its a soft, melodic joint featuring crooner Miguel, and its just the kind of jam that'll get the ladies checking for this LP when it drops next month. Wale can spit with the best of them, so hopefully the album has some hard-hitting tracks to offset this joint right here.
Young Jeezy - TM103
In stores: 12.20.11
It's almost fitting that the Jeezy's oft-delayed album will finally be released around Christmas. I mean, what better time for the Snowman to reappear than winter? Either way, this joint has been pushed back to the point many thought it was a myth and Jeezy may have actually retired. But alas, all reports show that TM103 will drop on December 20th. Now the only question that remains is if Young still has the skills to pay the bills, that is to say, can he still drop an album that bumps from beginning to end.
SOHH Watcha Think -- 3 major releases still remain before we close out 2011, which of these three spitters will drop the better album?
Speaking of 2011, salute to J. Cole for reaching #1 with his debut album. Sample this track with Cole and Chris Brown from DJ Drama's upcoming album:
