2015 came and went, some albums gave us chills, others made us want to party like it’s 1999, and then there were ones that just never seemed to arrive at all. While Adele made her surprising reappearance into the music world, Frank Ocean was probably off on an island far, far away laughing at us all as we impatiently wait for his sophomore album. He was most likely chillin’ alongside Rihanna and Kanye West, who have also been taking their precious time to release their next albums. Before we get too bitter about this, it’s important to think about all the great works of art that are likely to flood our ears in 2016. Here’s a list of albums that will (hopefully) arrive in the new year and fill our musical needs.
Not enough Womp in your life? We got you covered with our latest edition of Womp Womp Wednesday. From a dope “A Milli” remix by Drezo to a very unique sounding track in “Habits” by Halch, I’m confident there is a track to satisfy your speakers.

I’m going to preface this with a “this is not for everyone” label. If you like turning down for what, getting turnt, doing hoodrat things, crumping, or enjoy the occasional dubstep-trap music, then this is for you! Fortunate enough for me, I enjoy one of the above, but we’ll keep that our little secret on which one.
Yeah, not what I expected.
WOOOOOO this damn track. Future Our Lord And Savior released his latest single featuring rap’s resident dope dealer Pusha T, our favorite hat-wearing producer Pharrell, and some dude named Casino. The heavy Mike WILL Made It beat will cause you to jump around and break windows and punch holes in things and Future’s hook will also induce violent things. I was planning on giving this track the fantastic write-up it deserves but I’m really tired and have Finance to do. Check my Twitter in the near future (get it??? “Future?????”) for some finance jokes as the follow-up to my accounting jokes from the fall.
Also, if anyone has a version without Casino’s verse, I’d like that. A lot. Thanks.
You almost forget that it’s even Pusha T’s song coming off of his new album My Name is My Name due out October 8th. Regardless, this is that classic Pusha with the dark-grind like beat, and the dark-drug lord bars, and he holds his own against Kendrick. However, Kendrick bodies the beat, Pusha, the producer, me, you, and Johnny Manziel.
Warning: This song has been labeled NPS (No Pussy Shit) by me.
^Yano, it’s like NSFW, but better.
I hate myself for saying this, but when Kanye West tweets nowadays it’s kind of an event. So naturally, when he tweeted what’s shown below, I got excited along with you and other Internet people. A few minutes later, we got a brand new Pusha T single, produced by Kanye himself. It’s fire, but Jay-Z definitely wins today because “Open Letter” is everything.
Our family Hov brought that real hip hop shit this morning so me and Pusha wanna keep that feeling going

Shouts to IllRoots.
This that shit that y’all wanted // This shit cook up hard, don’t it?
Y’all gotta beg my pardon on it // But this shit sound like God don’t it?
So I’ve posted a ton of Pusha T recently, he’s been everywhere leading up to this release. Finally, we have the much anticipated Wrath of Caine. My fandom of Pusha obviously revolves around his adlib “yuuuchk,” but I also love how ferocious he sounds when he spits. An angry individual.
The intro is prime. I wish I could speak with a badass Jamaican accent, don’t we all? There’s a lot of big features on here, including Rick Ross the Big Boss who, just this morning, crashed his Rolls Royce into a building while being shot at. Happy birthday, Richard!
Millions is definitely a standout track on the tape, and both he and Ross go in on it.
Blocka is another standout to me, produced by Chicago’s Young Chop, best known for his work with Chief Keef.
Pusha really put a lot of great elements together on this effort, and a lot of the producers and features on the mixtape are awesome–the only significant exception to that would French Montana who I think is pretty damn abysmal. I also loved seeing Harry Fraud production on here–he just released a really, really dope LP with Curren$y that ought to be played on the regular. Neptunes is also a huge plus, as always.
Overall, Wrath of Caine is a huge success in my book. As Pusha points out, he’ll never sell as many records as some other popular artists, but I truly think he’s one of the best in the game right now. He’s also one of the few rappers out there who really, really impress me every time I see footage of him live. He just wants it more.
“All Praise to the Most High,” King Push.
A 21st century tale of finding true love. Proud to have Chicago represented so positively by King Louie.
I for one am a huge Pusha T fan. He kind of seems like the legitimate Rick Ross, as if he actually comes from this storied cocaine underworld that Rozay wishes so badly he was accustomed to. His trademark noise is almost as raw as Rozay’s, too. I don’t even know how to describe it so I’ll try to type it: “yuuukcchhh.” Like a disgusted, pissed off, Yiddish grandmother. I digress.
Anyways, Mr. T dropped the trailer to his upcoming mixtape, titled “Wrath of Caine.” The follow up to “Fear of God,” which was incredible, has high expectations. No due date yet, but you can definitely expect some new Pusha to drop in the near future.
Shouts out to Ron Reagan. GOP baby.
Pusha took the the net today to drop the first single from his, apparently, unnamed Def Jam debut. “Pain” features a classic Future hook, crooning all over the auto-tune, and Pusha Ton namedropped my Sixburgh Steelers. Of course, he’s helped on the 1’s and 2’s by Kanye and No I.D., so that couldn’t hurt anything. What do you guys think of the track? Too street? Think it might catch on?
Sort of surprised we didn’t have this one up earlier, but better late than never!
New joint that’s rumored to be off of “Cruel Summer” coming beginning of August from the Good Music members. This is the kind of rap I could listen too all day. I think it’s safe to say Pusha T is quietly getting into everyone’s hearts and Kanye does his thing. Kanye and his crew have been on fire since April and as time goes on, “Cruel Summer” approaches us.
Imagine Mr. West in uniform screaming this to his men.
G.O.O.D. Music! G.O.O.D. Music!
G.O.O.D. Music! G.O.O.D. Music!
And all my niggas say “G.O.O.D. Music!”
And all my ladies say “G.O.O.D. Music!”
I don’t know but I’ve been told
(I don’t know but I’ve been told)
If you get fresh get all the hoes
(If you get fresh get all the hoes)
I’m way fresher than all my foes
(I’m way fresher than all my foes)
Somebody please pick out they clothes
(Somebody please pick out they clothes)
The last time these two collaborated, shit hit the fan: Exodus 23:1 ignited a beef between the G.O.O.D. Music crew and YMCMB that’s still causing ripples across the world of hip hop. This new song has a noticeably less confrontational message, basically keeping the verbiage strictly to bitches and drugs. Shocking.
Anyway, The Dream croons like a boss per usual and Pusha throws down, as always.
