It’s no secret that A$AP Rocky been busy these last few years, which leaves room for plenty to say.

“I’ve been really experimenting as usual and what I like about this is it feels like my best work yet,” A$AP told DAZED.I want to leave expectations wide and open. I don’t want to tell you what to expect. I just want people to experience it how they do naturally.”

The North Philly MC’s last work, Whack World, was six years ago, so fans have been more than patient for the next album.

“I promise. It’s done. It’s finished,” said Whack in UPROXX. “We’re just making it all make sense, putting the pieces together, and we’re giving it to you.”

5. B.G. – Heart of the Streets 3

B.G.’s first release after serving 11 years was the collab with Gucci Mane titled Choppers & Bricks. The Hot Boy announced his next solo project in Hip Hop DX.

“Waaahhh!!!” he wrote in the caption. “I kno y’all wondering where I’m at and what I’m doing, but I’m taking it 1 day at a time. I’m working in silence and ima show up loud. I’m grateful for alllll the love and motivated by the hate… Heart of The Streets 3 coming sooner than y’all think #rns”

6. Baby Keem – Child with Wolves

Keem’s debut album, The Melodic Blue, featured multiple collaborations with cousin Kendrick Lamar, earning a Grammy win for Best Rap Performance for Family Ties. The question with Child with Wolves will be if he can hold his own without assistance from the best rapper on the planet.

7. J.Cole – The Fall Off

8. JID – Forever and A Day

JID’s last release, The Forever Story, elevated the Atlanta MC to new heights; Forever and A Day could make him a Top Five Alive contender.

9. Rapsody – Untitled

Rapsody’s release of Asteroids, produced by Hit-Boy, reminded fans of the quality lyricism by the North Carolina native, yet with plans a different approach for the new album.

“With this album, I wasn’t as focused on what I’m necessarily known for – being lyrical and all these metaphors and similes,” Rapsody said in Yahoo. “It’s going to come out naturally when it does, but it wasn’t a focus. I was focused on being more profound this time. Because especially like as a woman, I would love to be a representation for women and speak for women and have a connection with women.”

10. Megan THEE Stallion – Untitled
