Yes, this is true. As you can see below Yeezy came back to twitter for the first time in months to announce GOOD Music The Album. This sounds like it will be similar to MMG’s Selfmade series. But it might end up being Kanye’s sixth solo studio album. All we know is the good music continues in Spring 2012.

After numerous delays and fake tracklists, Young Jeezy’s long awaited TM 103: Hustlerz Ambition has another release date. In the video above, it says the date we can expect the album is December 20, 2012. Just one week after Ross, interesting. The audio you hear throughout the clip is the apparent intro for the album.

Yesterday Big Sean performed in front of a sold out London audience on his I Am Finally Famous tour. During the show, he lit up the stage with his “All Of The Lights” remix verse. Here is footage of that taking place. If you want to see more footage of Big Sean in London, click here. Big Sean is currently working on a mixtape and his sophomore album which he recently said should drop first quarter of 2012.
Another new visual from Trae’s Street King which is in stores now. It feels like I’ve seen Jordan Tower directed videos hit the net for years now and they all seem the same, with minimum effort and no improvement. But hey, at-least Trae is dope, right?
As you probably know, I’m not an Asher Roth fan. He just hasn’t ever impressed me to the point where I’d consider myself a fan of anything he is doing. This track isn’t horrible, but it’s still not impressive or something I’d want to throw on my iPod and actually listen to. The visual however is dope and I’m feeling that guerrilla-shot feel it has. The dope visual is done by the homies over at illRoots who have been consistently creating their own buzz in that video directing game with visuals for artists such as Big Sean, Pusha T, The Cool Kids and more. Those illRoots goons recently shot the visual for Big Sean’s “Dance (A$$)” remix too, so be on the look out for that.
I’m posting this for two reasons. One, I absolutely love the holiday season and I can definitely feel it approaching. Two, because this song is actually pretty good, and it seems alot more R&B than pop to me. So I’m giving Justin Bieber a pass for his song “Mistletoe” video on my Rap website which also posts R&B content? Yes, yes I am. If you’re mad, blame Kate for having this set as a draft for me. Ha.
Lloyd Banks will soon release his upcoming project The Cold Corner 2, which is a new installment of his popular mixtape, but it’s said that the project could come out as an album.
