Now that the end of year is up on us, artists are locking down dates to release projects for 2013. Here are a several of efforts that may not be on your radar.
Sabi – 0 to 60: Love Sounds (Download)
Warner Bros. singer Sabi follows up the release of "Cali Love" with an eleven-track mixtape entitled, ‘0 to 60: Love Sounds’. G.O.O.D Music artist Ryan McDermott, along with Mark Feist, The Arsenals, and The Costars, crafted the majority of the production.
The Inglewood native’s creative vision for the project is, “I want listeners to walk away from hearing this EP and have a real conversation about love, 'real' meaning being honest about their fears and scars so that they can begin to heal."
The ‘0 to 60 Love Sounds’ mixtape drops today, November 13, 2013.
Hall & Oats vs. Wu-Tang
Drake is not alone in honoring Wu-Tang for their 20th Anniversary of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)." Remix artist Melker Project blend legends Hall & Oats with the Staten Island rap clan. The free download will be available on November 14, 2013. Until then, listen to "Wu-Tang's Maneater featuring Hall & Oates & Wu-Tang Clan."
7 Days of Funk (Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla) – 7 Days of Funk
Snoopzilla could not lock Bootsy Collins in the studio instead he partnered with younger funk artist Dam-Funk for a G-Funk album. The pair formed 7 Days of Funk as Snoop manages the vocal responsibility and Dam-Funk conducts the instruments. The album will be released on December 10, 2013 via Stone Throw Records.
J. Holiday – Guilty Conscience
It’s not a comeback, but J. Holiday did take a break after releasing ‘Round 2’ in 2009. His next move is dropping the full-length album, ‘Guilty Conscience’, led by the "After We F**k” single. The project is extremely focused as he worked with one producer for the entire effort. "Creatively it felt good to have someone understand exactly what I was trying to accomplish," Holiday told Singersroom. The album is expected to go on sale December 10, 2013.
