MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

What’s Coming Out Next, El? – Upcoming Rap/Hip-Hop Releases (February Edition)

The month of love and overpriced chocolates is going to be overshadowed by a lot of good rap/hip-hop. February is highlighted with new joints by Joe Budden, Curren$y and (hopefully) Big Sean. Lesser known but equally dope mixtape/album drops are coming courtesy of Jae Millz, Brotha Lynch Hung, Killah Priest and LL Cool J. Open your ears and your bank accounts ‘cause you’re going to be spending a lot of dead presidents this month.

Jot down these tentative release dates onto your iPad or something. This month is gonna be a doozy, y’all.
