Drake, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Nas and Nicki Minaj All Drop Albums in June
June is shaping up to be one of the best months for hip-hop in recent history. Next month, Drake, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Nas and Nicki Minaj are all scheduled to release new albums.
Up first will be Yeezy, who has said his next album will be released on June 1. Following his solo record, 'Ye will team up with Kid Cudi as Kids See Ghost to drop their self-titled debut album on June 8.
The following week will see the return of Nicki Minaj, who announced at the 2018 Met Gala (May 7) that her next album, Queen, will be dropping on June 15. The project is expected to feature her previously released singles, "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li."
"This is a big night for me because I just let the world know that my album is coming on June 15 and it's called Queen. And I can't wait," Minaj said at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night.
Nicki also won't be alone on June 15, as Nas is apparently dropping his long-awaited 11th studio album the same day. While the record doesn't have a name yet, Kanye will reportedly have a hand in making the album, as the beatmaker said on Twitter that he's helping to produce the upcoming project.
Along with albums from 'Ye, Cudi, Nicki and Nas, June will also see the release of Drake's Scorpion. A follow up to 2017's More Life, as well as this year's two-song EP Scary Hours, Scorpion is set to drop in June, although an exact release date has yet to be revealed.
In April, Drizzy revealed longtime collaborators, Noah "40" Shebib" and Oliver El-Khatib will serve as executive producers on the album. The two have previously worked with Drake on many of his past projects including Take Care and Nothing Was the Same.
