    Spring/Summer Rap Release Dates

    From DX

    Following Curren$y’s June 15 kickoff of Roc-A-Fella Records’ revival, the label will release Jay-Z’s The Hits Collection Vol. 1 on June 29. The greatest hits collection will feature such songs as “Public Service Announcement,” “D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune),” “Run This Town,” “Empire State Of Mind,” and “Where I’m From.” Although the inclusion of “Renegade” has yet to be confirmed, Jeezy and Diddy have cleared the way for Eminem (June 22) by moving their upcoming projects to June 15 and June 29, respectively.

    While Marshall is on the road to Recovery, Z-Ro is ready to slang Heroin (June 15), as four Wu-Tang Killa Bees’ projects now swarm June’s second half. The following is the release schedule for the next eight weeks:
