Rap Release Dates: Kanye West, B.o.B, J. Cole, Slum Village

Kanye West's sixth solo album finally sees its release date revealed, Slum Village will come out with its first album in three years soon.

The suspense is over, maybe. Kanye West will be releasing his first album in two-and-a-half years when he releases an album believed to be called Yeezus in June. Several Hip Hop websites confirmed that June 18 will be the drop date of 'Ye's sixth solo studio album. Kanye West and Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records have yet to confirm the title.

Slum Village will return with their first album release in three years. The Evolution will release on June 25 and will feature Blu, Havoc and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The Detroit, Michigan trio's LP will debut the newest formation of Slum Village with T3, Illa J and Young RJ.

Georgia's B.o.B announced the title of his third LP. Underground Luxury has no date stamped on it yet but the first single from the album has been released with "Through My Head."

Craig G and Da Beatminerz will be releasing a collaborative retail project together. Craig took to Twitter last week to announce the Juice Crew-meets-Black Moon EP. No title or release date has yet been set but according to Craig G, the project is "coming soon."
