Look Out for All These New Hip-Hop and R&B Albums This Fall

In a week bookended by releases from Machine Guy Kelly and Xzibit today and Jay-Z’s live Barclays album recorded last week on Thursday, it’s officially a kick off to music debuts, comebacks, and never lefts for the rest of 2012.

41 titles are coming at you before you know it, and there’s A to Z something for everyone—from A$AP Rocky to The Weeknd.

Here’s a comprehensive list of upcoming LPs compiled by Rap-Up for the gift-giving season. Put together your own personal list of what-the-hell-do-I-buy-you? archetypes for the holidays—second cousin twice removed, 7 year old niece who already has an iPhone, co-worker you’ve never spoken to for the company Secret Santa—and then mark your calendars.
