ScHoolBoy Q's 'Oxymoron' album managed to hover around hip-hop fans' anticipatory lens last year despite massively hyped releases from Kanye West ('Yeezus') and Pusha T ('My Name Is My Name'). The album stayed off shelves partially due to sampling clearance issues, but February is coming, the album art is here and a new song -- 'Break the Bank' featuring the Alchemist's production -- has arrived.
The Alchemist and Evidence's new collaborative album — 'Lord Steppington' — was a long time in the making. It finally hits stores Tuesday (Jan. 21), but fans have the opportunity to stream the album in full.
In 2013, producers were responsible for crafting the sounds to some of your favorite songs. These studio mavericks delivered a bevy of beats that were soulful, disco-inspired and made speakers rattle. There are 10 nominees for Producer of the Year in The Boombox Fan Choice Awards, but there can only be one winner.
The first month of the year is usually rather quiet when it comes to new music releases, but there are a few rappers and singers who made it a point to deliver quality songs on projects that have been oft-delayed and highly anticipated.
