Summer starts Friday, and one of my favorite parts of the season (aside from beaches and warm weather) is the album and concert boom. Lots of artists go on tour over the summer, and to prep for those tours, they usually release a new album. Hot off the heels of Kanye's "Yeezus" (which came out yesterday!), here are seven albums to get hyped for, as well as the artist's latest single and tour info.
The album: Magna Carter Holy Grail
Release date: July 4
Why it could be good: His album title promises something great, and Jay-Z tends to deliver. Although there hasn't been an official single, info about the album has leaked, and the producer list is a great one: Jahlil Beats, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Rick Rubin, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, The-Dream, J. Cole, and Just Blaze are among them.
The tour: Find tickets to Jay-Z with Justin Timberlake on the Legends Of The Summer tour.
