What to expect from your favorite rappers in 2021

Your favorite artists already have projects planned to be released in 2021. Here's what you need to add to your calendar:


Drake - Certified Lover Boy: NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. announced the album's release noting that, "when the ball drops, the album drops." Since then, the release date has been pushed back from New Year's Day to an unknown date in January. Drake is keeping fans on their toes with this trailer:



Kanye West - DONDA: Planned for release in July 2020, Kanye West might have been too busy working on his presidential campaign and his latest single, "Nah Nah Nah." All we know is that the album has been pushed back indefinitely. The world needs another Kanye West album and his EP Emmanuel didn't come close to scratching our itch.


24kGoldn - El Dorado: The rapper tweeted "66% done" at 4:07p.m. September 22nd, 2020. With a reminder on December 7th, he tweeted again, "yo i ain't even drop an album yet." We can only hope El Dorado comes soon but only time will tell.


Kid Cudi - Entergalactic: If Man On The Moon III wasn't enough for you, Cudi has another trick up his sleeve. Announced in 2019 and planned for 2020, Cudi and Netflix are collaborating to make an album and animated series named Entergalatic. We are still waiting for the word from Netflix so we can get our binge on, but we know the collaboration has already missed its initial deadline.



Lil Wayne - I Am Not a Human Being III: Coming off of the release of "B.B. King Freestyle" and No Ceilings 3, Weezy has announced that I Am Not a Human Being III will be coming in 2021. We hope this comes soon so we can start 2021 off with a bang, but Weezy might have his hands full with a collaboration alongside the B.B. King Estate.


Schoolboy Q - TBD: Q has only teased fans with the possibility of an album drop in 2021, but not much is known besides that. The rapper has posted on social media saying "TOP OF THE YEAR" so... do with that information what you will.


Travis Scott - Utopia: Confirmed in October, Travis Scott will release his fourth studio album in 2021. With "Highest in the Room" and "FRANCHISE (feat. Future, Young Thug, and M.I.A)" as supporting singles, Scott has fans heavily anticipating what's to come. Still riding the waves of JACKBOYS and his McDonalds collaboration, the rapper is now releasing a line of hard sparkling water called Cacti. It's a big year for Travis Scott, but will both ventures be successful?



Nipsey Hussle - The Marathon: The late rapper's team announced an "interactive live visual album experience" of The Marathon on his Instagram. With promised updates and release date announcement, we're expecting this project to round out the end of 2021.


2021 already seems like a big year for rap. Whose project are you the most excited for? Let us know in the comments.
