New Music Releases for June 2018
If you thought the May releases were stacked, wait until you see which rappers are set to drop new music in June.
On June 1, Kanye West drops the second album from G.O.O.D. Music in 2018. The eighth studio album remained unnamed until the day of its release where it was revealed to be simply titled 'Ye.' The cover art pictures the mountain range in Wyoming, which Kanye apparently took with his iPhone on the way to the listening party. Originally, his plan was to put a photo of the surgeon who performed on his mother before her death on the cover.
If that isn't enough for you, 'Ye will also continue his G.O.O.D. Music streak and drop Kids See Ghosts, his heavily-anticipated joint album with longtime collaborator Kid Cudi,on June 8, and Nas' untitled album the following Friday (June 15).
Along with those projects, the rap world will receive Dizzy Wright's Don't Tell Me It Can't Be Done EP, as well as Black Thought, 9th Wonder and The Soul Council's joint project, Streams of Thought Vol. 1.
In early 2018, Baltimore rap trio Peso Da Mafia told XXL they were planning to drop their Never a Drought EP. Now fans will finally get to hear what they've been cooking up once the project drops next week (June 6). A couple days later on June 8, Wifisfuneral will be releasing Ethernet Vol. 1, his long-awaited mixtape that was originally scheduled to drop on May 25, but was pushed back due to clearance issues, among other things. Fat Nick plans to drop his album Generation Numb that day too, as does Freeway with his album Think Free.
