As the calendar turns, hip-hop fans set their sights on a whole new batch of releases, February short on days but not anticipation. Things kick off this Friday (Feb. 3) with the release of Big Sean's I Decided., his first solo album in nearly two years. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper has explained the concept of the album as one of second chances, Sean deciding to dedicate his life to making the right decisions.

Coming later in the month is Plato o Plomo from Fat Joe and Remy Ma. The pair have worked closely throughout their careers but drop their first official joint album on Feb. 17. The month should signal big things for the Terror Squad members as just before their album drops, they will attend the 59th annual Grammy Awards where they are nominated twice for "All the Way Up" in the Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Songs categories.

Additional releases come from Wyclef Jean, Young Dolph, Two-9, Chief Keef, Oddisee and Lupe Fiasco, who will drop DROGAS Light on Feb. 10. Lupe had announced in December that he cancelled all of his planned albums, but lo and behold, he dropped a new single with Big K.R.I.T. and Rick Ross titled "Tranquillo" just this weekend.

For the full list of known albums, EP and mixtapes dropping this month check the gallery above. There seems a possibility that Drake's More Life will drop this month as well, the rapper telling an Amsterdam crowd that he by the time his European tour circles back to them the project will be out.
