O.K. let’s be real.

It’s no September 29th, 1998 (which ironically was 10 years ago to this day,) but let’s look at the bright side of things. Tomorrow, approximately 10 Hip-Hop albums, along with a couple of R&B records, will debut marking the biggest day of releases for the culture this year (if not ever).

Big Kuntry King – My Turn To Eat
Charles Hamilton – Staff Development [Via Nah Right]
Dem Franchize Boyz – Our World, Our Way
Hell Rell – Straight Outta Harlem
Heltah Skeltah – D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team)
Jennifer Hudson – Jennifer Hudson
Madlib – (The Beat Konducta) – WLIB AM: King Of The Wigflip
Murs – Murs For President
Robin Thicke – Something Else
Sabac Red – The Ritual (this is the type of shit Hater Chris roots for)
T.I. – Paper Trail
Termanology – Politics As Usual
Willie The Kid – Absolute Greatness (Gangsta Grillz)

Now there’s been plenty of time to obtain links for all these albums and see what you’re working with. And unsurprisingly, I’ma have to side with T.I.P. on this one. If there’s an album that you have in heavy r-o, why not support the artist for holding you down? Obviously if it’s crap in your personal opinion or just collecting space on your hard drive, then no harm, no foul. But with everyone inexplicably focused on sales these days, sometimes you have to represent for your peoples.

Contrary to popular belief, the sales of Tha Carter III were beneficial for Lil’ Wayne, not Hip-Hop as a whole. With this wide range of selections, it’s time to show to prove for your favorite genre, budget allowing.

Don’t worry, you’ll get this same message from us come November 4th.
