Don’t finalize those “Best of 2007″ lists just yet…

DJ01 already ran down the battle royale that will be December 4th, and while that is definitely the main event of the winter of ’07, there are plenty other upcoming Tuesdays that deserve getting circled on your calendar — December 11th is looking particularly crazy. “Subject to change” should go without saying, and a few of these (i.e. Busta) I highly doubt will stick to these dates. It’s almost over, y’all… what are YOU getting ready for?

November 6th

  • Cassidy – B.A.R.S.: The Barry Adrian Reese Story [New rule for rappers: if you're going to put your real name in your album title, it can't be "Barry"]
  • Jay-Z – American Gangster [I thoroughly enjoyed the 2-tracks-missing version that leaked recently… “No Hook” beat-jacks Sean Price from 2005… not trying to say anything, I’m just saying…]

November 7th

  • Cam’ron Glitter (that’s his name now, right?) – Public Enemy No. 1 (mixtape)

November 20th

  • Cormega – Who Am I? CD+DVD
  • David Banner – The Greatest Story Ever Told
  • Freeway – Free At Last [Plenty tracks to preview here]
  • Hi-Tek – Hi-Teknology 3: Underground

December 4th

  • 2Pac – The Best Of 2Pac – Pt. 1: Thug and Pt. 2: Life [Oh, those 2Pac-legacy-rapers, always coming up with original ideas… Tracklist courtesy of The Rap Up. I’ll credit ‘em with at least throwing a couple curveballs in and not filling it up with strictly popular Pac songs, but with that comes the complaining about what they left off… How ’bout “Holla At Me” off All Eyez On Me? And if we’re including posthumous tracks, how ’bout “Teardrops & Closed Caskets” off Still I Rise?]
  • Busta Rhymes – Back On My BS
  • DJ Drama – Gangsta Grillz: The Album
  • Ghostface – The Big Doe Rehab
  • [I would've mentioned Mike Jones' album on this bullet point, but I just can't bring myself to do it. It's a long story... he sucks... OK, it's a short story...]
  • Saigon – The Greatest Story Never Told [Not to be confused with David Banner's great story of an extremely-similar name]
  • Scarface – MADE
  • Styles P – Super Gangster, Extraordinary Gentleman [For a dude with so many nicknames, you’d think that SP The Ghost Holiday Paniro Styles P could come up with something different in his album titles]
  • Three 6 Mafia – Last 2 Walk [Well, Wikipedia says so… is MTV still playing “Doe Boy Fresh”?… did MTV ever play “Doe Boy Fresh” other than the season finale of Adventures in Hollywood?][Dj01 EDIT: Looks like Spring 2008 now.]
  • Wyclef Jean – The Carnival II: Memoirs Of An Immigrant

December 11th

  • Beanie Sigel – The Solution
  • Nas – N***** [In Nas' quest to, among other things, make white bloggers feel uncomfortable, he has succeeded thus far]
  • Wu-Tang Clan – 8 Diagrams

December 18th

  • G-Unit – Shoot To Kill [Admit it -- you can die peacefully now that there's a sequel to "Magic Stick"]
  • Lil’ Wayne – Tha Carter III: The Leak (mixtape) [What a title, brings to mind that “Dear Mr. Toilet” line… actual album scheduled for February 12th]
  • Lupe Fiasco – The Cool [Remember that scene from Borat where he tries to shake hands with a guy in New York, and the guy straight up ran for his life? Think Lupe would react that way if you approached him with a boombox bumping Midnight Marauders? Somebody get on that]
  • Q-Tip – The Renaissance
  • Rick Ross – Trilla

December ??th

  • Joe Budden – Mood Muzik 3 (mixtape)


  • Alchemist – Chemical Warfare [No date as of yet]
  • Pete Rock – NY’s Finest [Looking like January '08]
