LOS ANGELES(RUSHPRNEWS)10/01/2008–It seems like that the year 2008 will end with a big bang in the rap game. Four Hip-Hop icons will release their new albums before the year ends, including Eminem, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre.
As previously reported, Jay-Z is going to release his highly-anticipated album The Blueprint 3 on December 2, according to reports. 50 Cent’s last album on his deal with Interscope Before I Self Destruct will hit record stores shelves on December 9.
Most recently former G-Unit affiliate Sha Money XL revaled on his blog that Eminem’s record will be titled The Empack and that it will come before year 2009. Furthermore he announced that Hip-Hop legend Dr. Dre is going to release his often-delayed album Detox around the same times like 50 Cent’s new set.
West Coast rapper and Aftermath signee Bishop Lamont confirmed the Detox release date. In a recently released video, Lamont said that Dre is ready to release a single from Detox as early as November.
Despite XL’s statement, Eminem’s new album is still titled King Mather, according to News Of The World.
“It’s exciting times and, of course, there’s massive expectation surrounding this new record,” a source told the site. “But the fans need not worry about its quality. Most of the music’s being mastered at the moment. There’s a real belief the album will go stellar.
