While J. Cole chose to push his album up to match Kanye West on June 18th, Fabolous has different plans. In a recent sit down with Rap-Up (after his performance in LA), Loso reveals that due to some “technicalities” Loso’s Way 2 will not hit shelves in late July (23rd or 30th to be exact). Features to include Young Jeezy, Struggle Falsetto, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, 2 Chainz and Trey Songz.
“Just a little bit of growth. I’ma give you what I do and some collaborations here and there, but definitely some evolution as an artist, as a man, as a father, as a friend,” he said of the sequel to 2009’s Loso’s Way. “Just talking about some real shit and still doing what I do, giving you some witty lines, giving you some catchy stuff for the ladies. Just good music overall.”

Kanye West’s once-cryptic “June 18th” tweet was in fact the release date for his sixth studio album, Yeezus, as confirmed by Rap Up. This comes a day after he literally world-premiered “New Slaves” projected onto 66 buildings scattered throughout the world. As he will appear on tonight’s Saturday Night Live season finale, there is a chance where Kanye will perform “New Slaves” live. #YEEZYSEASON. SHAKE UPDATE: I’m not sure why some of y’all are even remotely shocked Kanye would title his album Yeezus. Y’all do remember this Rolling Stone cover I put up top right? That was 2006!
