    Gun Hands: Lil Wayne

ARTIST: Lil Wayne
LABEL: Cash Money
ALBUM #: 11 (s0lo)
DETAILS: Wayne has long said that the fifth installment in his Carter series would not only be his last in the line, but also his last in the game. But then again, we’ve heard this before from Weezy, who also has a tendency to drop new music out of nowhere—just think back to the seven-day countdown we got when he dropped Dedication 5 in early September. If we can expect anything from the Carter series, it’s great production, a bunch of high-profile features, and at least a solid effort from Wayne. But either way, don’t expect it to be his final say in the rap game.

LABEL: Def Jam
ALBUM #: 2
BEATS: Pharrell, The Neptunes, Scott Storch
DETAILS: If there’s one thing we know from the upcoming Pusha T project, it’s that it won’t actually actually be a Clipse reunion, despite the fact that Push is back working with Pharrell and The Neptunes. As he teased on Twitter, he went into the studio with Pharrell recently to get started on his next project, to be titled King Push, a session that was supposed to last 20 days. You never know with Push—after all, his solo debut was pushed back for more than a year—but if he hops on some more Pharrell tracks, expect fire to erupt from the G.O.O.D. Music man’s words.

    Nicki Minaj - "I'm Legit"

ARTIST: Nicki Minaj
LABEL: Cash Money
ALBUM #: 3
DETAILS: Nicki has been talking about returning to the booth since her foray into American Idol, new perfumes and a moscato company last year, but music had been scarce—until the last few weeks. The first indication that she was getting back to her roots was her “Boss Ass Bitch” freestyle, which immediately set Twitter aflame, followed by appearances on the “My Nigga” remix alongside Lil Wayne and Meek Mill and her latest one, a ridiculous verse over Young Thug’s “Danny Glover.” She’s getting back to that tongue-twisting, fire-spitting mixtape Nicki, then we’re all for it, and she’s previously said she’s gunning for 2014. We’ll see.
