Bonus mentions for:

The only thing that's been holding these two back is a lack of consistent production, now they're teaming up with two of the best producers around, both of which have proved in advance they can work together (Muggs is one of the few non-RZA producers who can handle Wu stuff well, 9th produced a couple of highlight tracks on ''This Week'').

Also, PROPER sequel albums from Rae and Vik. '06 can't happen quick enough.

Alpha Centauri
Yes, a new Meth and Red album. Hopefully they will do what they did with Blackout! and keep it with just those two. I can't wait for that. Also the new Wu-Tang and Jurassic 5. I would purchase the Doom/Face album but I've never really liked 'Face, it's his voice.

Pharoahe Monch has been taking his time, but I'm excited for that. I always think hip hop
releases take ages if they're more than two years apart just because that's standard in rock, really.

Though Method Man had a 6 year gap.

Ain't it called 'Doctor's Advocate'?

nice job Deathblow. thumb up

Wolf Dog
Wow, a new Deltron! Where'd you hear this!? I'm exited for mostly all the albums Death highlited specially for Ghost/Doom, Vaudeville, and GZA. And although MM Food disapointed me, i'm confident his next one won't. thanks for the list thumb up

I'll definitely be buying a lot of these. I wonder how that new Reflection Eternal album is gonna sound. Hopefully it's as good as the first. I see Black Star but I wont hold my breath. There's no doubt it'll be pushed back like it's always been. Plus Mos is too busy being a triple threat to put in the work for a new album.

Inspectah Deck
I'm waiting for that Inspectah Deck cd

Dr. Strangelove
Well there goes all my money in 06, haha.

Should be a great year for hip hop.

Inspectah Deck

Ya Krunk'd Floo
Unless they go OTT on the production, The Fugees' new album is gonna be sick. Dre's joint has been so long in the works, it's gotta be good too. Also, Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse sounds like a good connection - those dudes are funky, yo.

Inspectah Deck
Yeah, Cee-Lo is funny sometimes
