12 Rappers Who Have Gone More Than A Year Without A Project


Well, 2014 is finally getting underway in terms of hip-hop album and mixtape releases, with the first two of our 25 Most Anticipated AlbumsScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron and Rick Ross’s Mastermind—coming in the past 10 days. And with a slew of new projects on the way, the year is shaping up to be a formidable contender to challenge last year’s epic release schedule that saw new projects from Jay Z, Drake, Kanye West and a whole bunch more.

But there are still plenty of artists who sat out the past fifteen months without an album, mixtape, EP or project in any form. With the year picking up fast, XXL compiled a list of 12 rappers who we haven’t heard from in a while, and who we’d like to hear from again soon. We’ve broken things down step by step, organized by how many days it’s been since their last full mixtape, album or EP hit the streets. Click through the slideshows to check it out.

    God awful mobile site smh

  • Unbelievable

    XXL, how many people have to complain about your mobile site before you do something about it? Half the time the links don’t work, and when they do, the format/layout Is GAWD awful. Y’all have the money to hire someone to give this a makeover. Please do your fans a favor for once and step up your shit. This is 2014, everyone views this from mobile phone. Get your shit together.

    Control System came out in May 2012, Soul has been more quiet than about any other rapper around, he has only let out about a handful of loosies since then and a decent amount of features. I expect him to drop to absolute heat when his new album comes, plus he tweeted about releasing a mixtape at some point before.
