Killer Mike - PL3DGE

Interesting week with a big release from Killer Mike, some strong reissues and the New Boyz sophomore effort about which I wrote at All World Dance, New Boyz May Be Too Cool To Care But Are They Leaving Jerkin' Behind?.

On a sadder note, this will be the last weekly report for awhile. I'm taking a little break until I can see a strong reason to continue doing this. Traffic is very low. The ad network of which this site is a member has taken an incredible nose dive and, generally speaking, it's a losing proposition on multiple levels. But I do want to think those that have expressed their verbal support of this site. It's always nice to hear positive statements. Peace!

New Rap Albums: Messy Marv, Moonshine Bandits, Pete Rock, Tyler the Creator

Tyler the Creator  Goblin album cover art

Tyler the Creator - Goblin: Deluxe

Hip hop albums are a dying art form killed by mixtapes and rap as a singles sport as much as anything else. It's like a week in January. This is looking like the slimmest year for hip hop album releases since I started doing the Hip Hop Albums database back in 2004. Some call it murder. I call it suicide. Guess that's a fitting thought for Tyler the Creator Week!
