So many albums are dropping today and unfortunately people still aren’t buying them like they used to. But for you dedicated fans and there are millions of you, here are some of your favorite artists releasing new music:

John Mayer Battle Studies (Sony Music Distribution)

John Mayer releases new music just like he bags his Hollywood honeys; quite frequently. This is the 9th studio album released from the adult contemporary artist which is sure to be another standout hit. He composed 10 out of the 11 records featured on the album with “Who Says” currently in radio rotation. I haven’t given the album a full listen but I have heard “Friends, Lovers or Nothing” which in my opinion is really great.

Rakim The Seventh Seal (SMC Records)

Still dedicated to the game, Rakim Allah releases yet another album to add to his repertoire. The Seventh Seal is the emcee’s fourth solo album dropping today. Several leaks from the album and from live performances from the vet has been released since the start of this year. It’s great to see Hip-Hop return the originators the appreciation that they’ve given to the craft. Despite others still going back and forth with the “Hip-Hop is dead” theory, how can that be so with guys like Rakim still churning it out?

50 Cent Before I Self Destruct (Interscope Records)

You know 50 has new music coming soon when you start seeing him ruffling a few feathers. Whether it’s taking jabs at Rick Ross using his baby mama and child as pawns or teaming with Beanie Sigel to take aim at Jay, 50 will make sure he grabs your attention. “Baby By Me” featuring Ne-Yo is in current rotation while “Hold Me Down” has been slowly making its way to radio; or at least I’m hoping that will be the next single because it’s one of my favorites.

Kid Sister Ultraviolet (Downtown Records)

Kid Sister is best known for her record “Pro Nails” featuring Kanye West which was released last year. But the young fashionista can finally exhale as her debut album, Ultraviolet has finally come to fruitation.  “Right Hand Hi” is the latest single from the Chicago native’s new album. I spoke to Kid Sister a while back very briefly and she seems to be very dedicated to her music. In a recent interview she talked about having a tough life growing up in a low-income household and also being once 215lbs. I’ve seen seen her described as everything from a rapper to a pop starlet, but this new album is allegedly very much Hip-Hop. Haven’t heard it just yet, but her enthusiasm alone for her music is very encouraging.
