Hip-Hop Roundup, April 2011
In recent weeks we've seen major hip-hop releases from Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and Atmosphere. But we're still waiting for a true blockbuster in 2011, the kind of album that forces every rap fan, whether a Dirty South advocate or a backpack nerd, to listen and form an opinion on it. We can't help but remember that last year was a slow build that eventually led to Drake's Thank Me Later, Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and, uh, Waka Flocka Flame's Flockaveli. Perhaps 2011 will be the same.
