Wale’s new upcoming album The Gifted (June 25) just went up for pre-order on iTunes. And with that comes the album’s tracklist.
Sadly, the features are absent for now, so take a look at the titles after the jump and let’s play a game of “Who Will Be On What?” in the comment section below. UPDATE: Guest spots are now filled and the line-up features Meek Mill, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Sam Dew and Tiara Thomas. No Ross? Interesting. Hit the jump and see how y’all held up in the “Who Will Be On What? challenge haha.
It’s no secret that Hannah Montana has been
putting chocolate into her peanut butter working with more hip hop artists as of late (her new single, “We Can’t Stop,” is set to debut June 3rd and will be produced by Mike WiLL), and once again she pops up on Mike’s own single presumably for his upcoming #FuckVerses project.
So apparently, J. Cole’s re-up has gotten a push up to June 18th… the same day a certain Chicago producer-on-the-mic drops his own highly anticipated album. A great summer of music? I’d like to think so. SHAKE UPDATE: Hit the jump for an alternate cover as well.
Kanye West is one of the greatest artists of our generation. Which is exactly why I’m moving my release date up.
Earlier we got a random preview as well as a cheeky soo-woo’d-Yeezy II plug. UPDATE: Now here goes a better look at the official album cover for Kanye’s forthcoming LP, Yeezus, due June 18.

This Summer, Mike WiLL Made It is taking a break from providing folks with hits to drop off a brand new instrumental-driven EP through his EarDrummers Entertainment label. As the title suggests, there will be no actual verses on the project but Mike promises some “high-profile” artists will be providing hooks to his “version of jazz.”
When I was growing up, all the producers that were big at the time, I used to like hearing their instrumentals. With the Est. In 1989 series, and now with #FuckVerses, I wanted to show people the growth; from rap, to now R&B and Pop and Rock, my sound is so diverse, and these projects allow me to give my fans music and show off my growth at the same time.
My father would always make me listen to Jazz. With some songs in Jazz, the track might just be instrumental, or, after a few minutes, an artist might start suddenly singing- it was just open that way, and that’s how this project will be for me.
