MUSIC

Lil Wayne- Rebirth

Lil Wayne can do no wrong (at least in the confines of an album cover), but his next album, Rebirth, is going where few rappers have ventured before: rock music. Wayne’s rock debut, which will also include some new rap tracks, is an experiment for the monstrously popular hip hop star. The song “Prom Queen” sounds promising, for it demonstrates how Wayne rocks out without losing his gangster flair. Whether Lil Wayne’s risk will pay off is still in question, but what remains regardless is his status as one of the forefront rap pioneers of the decade.

Release date: November 24, 2009 – Will be available on iTunes

Kid Cudi- Man on the Moon: The End Of Day

You Miamians who do not recognize the name Kid Cudi need to take a serious dose of hip hop. DJs’ heavy rotation of his smash single “Day ‘n’ Nite” has made Kid Cudi a force to be reckoned with, and his debut album Man on the Moon proves he’s here to stay. Instead of succumbing to the styles of the mainstream artists he’s compared to, Cudi’s album stays true to his fan base with signature eclectic beats and abstract lyrics. After listening to Man on the Moon, fans will discover that Cudi is paving his way towards a revolutionized branch of hip hop.

Already released – Available on iTunes

Michelle Branch- Everything Comes and Goes

If you’re thinking that you haven’t heard the name Michelle Branch in a while, you’re right. The last time was probably in 2003, when she released her last hit single, “Are You Happy Now?” After taking a swing at country in 2006 as part of The Wreckers, Branch decided to go solo with her new album Everything Comes and Goes. Fans can tell Branch is ready to climb back up the charts flyin’ solo based on her recently released single “Sooner or Later.” The album will be an interesting listen for her former teenybopper fans that are now in their college years.
