Since the majority of consistent posters enjoy hip-hop, I think it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to new releases. Obviously, the high profile releases will get their own thread, but considering there are lots of overlooked stuff, I think it would be good to have a thread where one can scan through and catch up on things missed or discover new/upcoming artists.
It would especially be beneficial for me because school is dominating my life so I don't have much time to find new music these days.
So feel free to post new releases here.
I'll update (or Mane if he wants) the first page when somebody adds something so we can ge a fat list going throughout the year.
Anything and everything is good. Doesn't have to be any good.
Also feel free to add thoughts about the album if it's good, sucks, disappointing, review it, whatever.

I like Rick Ross' Rich Forever the best on this list. It's some of his best music. I just started listening to ScHoolboy Q and Stalley, so I'm going to check out Habits & Contradictions and Savage Journey to the American Dream. I didn't even bother listening to Kid Cudi's WZRD, he's garbage now. Taylor Allderdice wasn't Wiz's best either.
