With November here the weather is finally beginning to cool down as temperatures drop. November also marks the fourth and final quarter of the year, meaning artists that have been quiet will make sure they leave their mark by dropping heat that will get you through the winter season.
Amongst artists expected to drop this month is Wiz Khalifa, Fabolous and Jadakiss, PnB Rock, T-Pain, Talib Kweli, and perhaps even Eminem, N.E.R.D, and Migos. Some artists have already shared their plans to release something this month, while other remain coy about it.
Let’s get to all those confirmed projects and ones that remain a possibility.
PROBLEM – ‘SELFISH’ (11/3)
Problem has been one of the busiest rappers in the industry this year, having spent most of his year in the studio working on fire joints. Prob will strike with a hat trick with his ‘Selfish’ debut album, after releasing two mixtapes earlier this year.
SKEME – ‘SECOND NOTICE’ (11/3)
Next year LA rapper, Skeme will release his first full-length studio album. Before doing that, Skeme will hit fans with a preview of what to expect on the album, by releasing his ‘Second Notice’ EP.
WIZ KHALIFA – ‘LAUGH NOW FLY LATER’ (11/10)
Wiz Khalifa has been readying his next album and follow-up to 2015’s ‘Blacc Hollywood’. The Taylor Gang boss will first release his ‘Laugh Now Fly Later’ mixtape, that will be a warm-up to the album. The first single off the mixtape is “Something New” featuring Ty Dolla $ign.
TALIB KWELI – ‘RADIO SILENCE’ (11/17)
Hip-hop royalty, Talib Kweli will release his ‘Radio Silence’ album on Friday, November 17th. Talib hasn’t really missed with an album yet and his music is always received by hip-hop enthusiasts with open arms anytime he drops.
T-PAIN – ‘OBLIVION’ (11/17)
T-Pain made his comeback to music earlier this year when he dropped the Young M.A-assisted “F.B.G.M.” single. The autotune originator then followed that with “Goal Line” featuring Blac Youngsta. Having been in high school when Pain was really popping, I’m definitely cheering for him, although I know he won’t be able to replicate singles like “Bartender,” “In Love With A Stripper,” and “Can’t Believe” featuring Lil Wayne.
PNB ROCK – ‘CATCH THESE VIBES’ (11/17)
Barring no Lil B curse, PnB Rock’s ‘Catch These Vibes’ album should be an absolute smash. The Philadelphia artist figures to bring them vibes that will fit right in with cuffing season, as there will be a rise in cuddle sessions and new relationships.
REXX LIFE RAJ – ‘FATHER FIGURE 2: FLOURISH’ (11/17)
Bay Area rapper Rexx Life Raj has been on a complete wave this year. He’s already collaborated on some big singles with Russ, Sade, amongst others, and on Friday, February 17th he will release his latest capsule, ‘Father Figure 2: Flourish’.
NXWORRIES – ‘YES LAWD! REMIXES’ (11/17)
Last October the neo soul group comprised of Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge, known as NxWorries dropped their ‘Yes Lawd!’ project. On November 17th they will follow that up with a complete remix project.
FABOLOUS & JADAKISS – ‘FREDDY VS. JASON’ (11/24)
A project that hip-hop fans have been yearning for since last year is Fabolous and Jadakiss’ collaborative ‘Freddy Vs. Jason’ project. Fans of the rappers hoped the duo would release the project on Halloween, but that didn’t come to fruition. On Friday, November 24th fans will get their wish. The first single “Stand Up” featuring Future did however drop on Halloween and you can listen here.
HOPSIN – ‘NO SHAME’ (11/24)
California rapper Hopsin is ready to release his new album ‘No Shame’ on November 24th, after his two new singles received such a great reception.
EMINEM – ‘REVIVAL’ (?)
Approximately four-years-ago Eminem gave us his last body of work that was ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’. Since then he’s released singles, but no actual album or project. According to HITS Double Daily all that will change on November 17th, as Em will reportedly release his 9th album, ‘Revival’.
N*E*R*D – ‘NO_ONE EVER REALY DIES’ (?)
N*E*R*D surprised fans at ComplexCon with a listening party for their upcoming ‘No_One Ever Really Dies’ album. The album will include 11-tracks and features from Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Future, Gucci Mane, and others. No official release date has been set, but with a full track list and listening out of the way, you can definitely expect it to drop this month.
MIGOS – ‘CULTURE 2’ (?)
The Migos trio has had quite the busy year touring and performing at every popping festival this summer. The group has even merged off with Quavo and Offset making their own moves and working on collaborative projects with other solo artists. However, it might be time for the group to refocus on themselves as they ready ‘Culture 2’. The first single off their upcoming album united Nicki Minaj and Cardi B and it is a known fact that Kanye West has taken on the Executive Producer role for the album. Perhaps we will get ‘Culture 2’ at some point this month.
