As the year comes to a close, we shouldn’t be so quick to look into 2020. New Hip Hop albums releasing this Friday, December 6, could be one of the best weeks in the game this year.
Some of these albums might very well be the best of 2019. With a few veterans on the list, and one who can very well steal the spotlight for their debut album.
Either way these albums could end the year of 2019 strong for Hip Hop as well as take us into 2020 the right way.
After spending weeks in the hospital, French Montana has been keeping his fans updated about his current health condition. French was admitted to San Fernando Valley Hospital after complaints of stomach pains, nausea and an elevated heart rate. Since then he took to Instagram this past Thanksgiving thanking everyone for their support, “Thank you Everyone for all of the prayers, love and support. I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time!!!”
Aside from thanking his fans, French Montana took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce he will be dropping his third studio album. Montana captioned a photo of him doing pushups in the hospital with, “ANT KEEP ME DOWN !! Been workin hard on my new album and I’m so proud to announce it’s coming THIS FRIDAY !!! #MONTANA The music is keepin my spirit alive. THANK YOU to my fans, love y’all for ridin with me thru this journey.”

After releasing the hit single ‘Yes’ in November, Joey Crack, released his second single and music video off the new album. Featuring Dre, the music video for ‘Deep‘ was directed by Irv Gotti and is currently only can be viewed exclusively via Tidal.
“My love for hip hop is crazy. He doesn’t believe me,” Fat Joe said, pointing to music producer Andre “Dre” Lyon of Cool & Dre, who sat beside him. “But he’s never heard me say this. And I’ve got mad at all the other rappers who said they’re retiring and they came back. No, I’m a strong advocate against that. So I’m really – I’ve been flirting with it. I’m like a 85% gone,” Fat Joe tells CBS News.
