Nicki's new album isn't a re-release. She's stated this several times now... -_- And those aren't tour dates. She's just going over to the UK to promote the album before it's released in April.

I laughed so hard when I read this. I love Azealia and how crazy she is. I catch myself humming "212" all the time but that's one song you can never sing out loud without people giving you the evil eye.

Pretty much what themostdeplete said. He doesn't have a perfect catalog by any means, but doing "Dead Presidents" is plenty, hahaha.

Anyway, would it be too much to post my mixtape here?

"50 Cent has 2 albums to drop."

Because, you know, that'll totally happen with the same calendar year. Just like in '09.
