The spring and summer album release list is starting to become more robust. With both underground and big named artists gearing up to drop projects, hip hop and R&B fans have a little bit of everything to look forward to.

On the R&B tip, The-Dream and Chris Brown are gearing up to drop “IV Play” and “X” respectively. If you shy away from the mainstream stuff you have projects from Tylery, The Creator, Talib Kweli, Rittz, and Tech N9ne to look forward to. Some “where have they been” artists like Eve and LL Cool J are ready to pop one off as well.

A few artists with an identity crisis are on the radar as well. Snoop Dogg is getting ready to release “Reincarnated” under the Snoop Lion moniker while the artist formerly known as N.O.R.E will drop “Student of the Game” under his new alias, “P.A.P.I.”.
