Rap Release Dates: CES Cru, Mitchy Slick, Lil Wayne, Talib Kweli

Strange Music's CES Cru comes with their studio full-length "Constant Energy Struggles," while veterans like R.A. The Rugged Man, Papoose and Illogic gear up for new releases.

With South By Southwest happening last week, much of the industry appeared on festival vacation of sorts. New announcements were slim. The biggest story in the way of album news may be when The Roots' drummer/musical director ?uestlove revealed—perhaps without consent—that Justin Timberlake has a second volume of The 20/20 Experience planned for November. The first volume, is made available today.

Also coming in the near future is a second retail release from The Weeknd. This will arrive after strong sales and critical acclaim for the three-free-album set, Trilogy.

In more street-centered music, Mitchy Slick of Strong Arm Steady has announced plans to self-release his latest street effort, Feet Match The Paint. The San Diego, California vet will work with Murs and Planet Asia, as well as his crew of KRNDN (a/k/a Krondon) and Phil Da Agony.
