Some of your favorite hip-hop artists still have some fire to pour for the final month of 2022 even if 2023 is just around the corner.
With the release of his new album, Heroes & Villains, Metro Boomin triumphantly emerges from the ashes following the devastating death of his mother earlier this year. The St. Louis-born producer opted to postpone the project until Dec. 2 from its original release date of Nov. 4. To provide fans with the greatest possible product, Metro wants to get all the samples approved.
Furthermore, he emphasized that none of the other releases scheduled to be released on the same day were to blame for the delay.
Just one week before the album’s scheduled release date, Metro tweeted, “I couldn’t get all the samples on my album cleared in time for next week so I’m dropping on Dec. 2.” “I have enough time right now to make sure that everyone receives this masterpiece as intended. It will be worth the wait, I assure you. P.S. I would never change the release date of my CD for anyone else.”
After his 2018 solo debut, Not All Heroes Wear Capes, which features cameos from Drake, 21 Savage, Young Thug, Gunna, and others and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, Metro Boomin’s sophomore album will be released.
Since then, he has continued to feed the streets by working with 21 Savage on the 2020 collaboration effort Savage Mode 2, and he has also produced songs for Drake, including the 2021 hit single “Knife Talk,” and Drizzy and 21’s “More M’s,” both from their joint album Her Loss.
Almighty So 2, the follow-up to his legendary DJ Scream-hosted mixtape, Almighty So, is scheduled to be released by Chief Keef in December. Sosa’s 2021 album, 4NEM, was released exactly one year ago on December 16th.
The leader of The Glo Gang is prepared to unleash 17 new songs, including the already-out singles “Tony Montana Flow” and “Racks Stuffed Inna Couch.”
Me vs. Myself by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie will now be released on December 9 after being delayed. The Bronx, New York, rapper postponed the release date after learning that Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss album would be released on the same day. The album was originally scheduled to come out in November.
Boogie apologized without hesitating on his Instagram Story, writing, “Sorry but record dropping in December now, Drake was dropping the same day and I’m not with it.” He also included multiple laughing and weeping emojis.
There are 22 songs on the album, and Lil Dirk, Roddy Ricch, Tory Lanez, and others make guest appearances. Before the current offering, there existed the 2021 project B4 AVA.
