Here are the Mixtapes Arriving on Thanksgiving Day
Hip-hop fans will have a lot more to be thankful for on Turkey Day since some of the game's biggest names are dropping new heat on Thanksgiving (Nov. 26).
Although family members might frown upon wearing headphones at the dinner table, long-awaited tapes like the follow-up to Lil Wayne's 2009 effort, No Ceilings 2, and Fabolous' Summertime Shootout may prove to be a worthy exception.
Rick Ross is also getting in on the action with his Renzel Remixes. The tape will bring together several of Ross' freestyles, mashups and remakes of other artist's songs. He's already dropped a few appetizers of what's to come with a remake of Post Malone's "White Iverson" and a freestyle over Adele's "Hello."
Future has also hinted at releasing a project on Thanksgiving Day. Although the name of the project hasn't been revealed it could be the Mike WiLL Made It-assisted effort, Ape Sh!t after a look at this tweet.
The Astronaut Kid has had quite a successful year for music. Off the heels of 2014's mixtape Monster, he dropped three more in 2015 including his collaboration project with Drake, What a Time to Be Alive. Not to mention his album, DS2. The Future Hive will likely be open to some dirty Sprite to go along with their Thanksgiving meal.
Power fans should also get excited as 50 Cent is set to drop The Kanan Tape, based on his ruthless character in the Starz show. Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh's self-titled effort will hit the internet streets at midnight, getting an early start on the Banksgiving festivities.
And for the R&B enthusiasts, Erykah Badu promised to drop her But You Caint Use My Phone mixtape during Thanksgiving weekend to give some soulful vibes after the itis kicks in. She hasn't revealed an exact date but at least the project can serve as the soundtrack as the leftovers are being devoured.
