It seems like Joey Bada$$ will be releasing his debut album B4.DA.$$ in early 2015. And today, the young emcee released the official tracklist for his album.
Their hasn’t been any speculation on the producers of the album (since Joey originally prospered musically from his 90s boom-bap sound), but some artists that will appear on Bada$$’ new project are Action Bronson on a bonus cut, Raury, BJ The Chicago Kid, and many more.
The inter-fighting at Young Money has been well-known publicly for some time and came to a head late last week when Lil Wayne tweeted his own frustration with the label via Twitter.
Someone whose dissatisfaction has been known for even longer, Tyga, alongside Chris Brown, recently sat down with Power 106 in Los Angeles and detailed why he has been frustrated. Tyga says he's lost creative control at the label and the fans are suffering as a result.
Now, there could be another possible step toward being able to get a new Kendrick LP. An alleged photo of the album’s tracklist is circulating online. The pic shows 18 tracks with guest appearances by Pete Rock, Dr. Dre, George Clinton, Jay Rock, and Ron Isley.
There is no confirmation that the photograph really represents the songs that will appear on Kendrick’s upcoming project. In previous weeks, rumored tracklists for Kanye West’s next LP and another surprise album from Beyoncé made their rounds on the Internet as well.
Beyonce was nominated for five Grammy Awards for the 2015 edition of the award ceremony, which is slated to take place February 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Dr. Dre is building a 10,000 square foot music studio under his home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In the wake of the grand jury's decision not to indict New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner, rapper Azealia Banks called out a handful of artists on social media.
Banks first took aim at Iggy Azalea, an artist she previously engaged in a social media feud with. She declared that the Aussie rapstress, who she referred to as "Igloo Australia," has been silent on black issues despite taking part in black culture.
A leak of J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive album includes a track called “Fire Squad,” which calls out several White artists.
Several rappers and entertainment industry figures have responded to no charges being brought against Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who was shown on video choking Eric Garner. Garner died as a result of Pantaleo's actions and Garner's death was ruled a homicide.
