Over the years, rappers have been releasing albums left and right, and have been putting out great projects for fans. While rap music has seen countless albums this year, there are still some major artists that haven’t given us any music, and may not for years. Fans have been begging certain rappers for an album for awhile, some being over a decade at this point.

This year, fans have been fortunate enough to receive a solid project from both Jadakiss and Dr. Dre, who are notoriously known for waiting on putting out studio albums. Dre has been a long time coming, almost shocking fans with the release, but Kiss has been keeping fans on their toes over the years. So the question is – why are rappers so hesitant to release music after years of making it?

It’s no secret that Andre 3000 hasn’t given us a solo project, and that fans could not be any more anxious for one. The MC has been teasing the idea for years, but people are wondering what the hold up is, being that this was an amazing year for music. Even Styles P agreed that having bars as a rapper is starting to come back in style. There’s almost no question that anything Three Stacks releases would be dope.

Jay Electronica is another contender in the fear of releasing an album category. The MC has been signed to JAY Z for over 6 years, but has given us no idea as to when he might release a project. Is it because he is changing the course of his sound, or is he simply afraid the feedback won’t match the hype? Either way, rappers need to get over their fears, and start pushing out the material. Stop keeping the true fans waiting.
