Hip hop Release Dates

Welcome to the hip hop release date page. Here you can browse the most recent, popular and classics in hip hop releases. From Albums and mixtapes to artists and songs/videos; this user friendly interface will provide you with a comprehensive list of all of your favourites.

If you are a Hip hop head or even familiar with the music industry, you will know how record labels tend to release albums and Videos on dates that may be beneficial to create more publicity and hype for the artists. A great example of a hype ploy was the release of Ice-T's "Power" & Eazy-E's "Eazy-Duz-It", both of which were dropped on September 13, 1988. Or a more recent publicity stunt that caught international eyes and ears was the 50 cent vs Kanye West showdown that was even brought to the stage at the "MTV Video Music Awards" in 2007. This competition mentality has created a world of its own, building up an invisible hype to draw attention to the Hip Hop universe, and it has proven to be beneficial to both parties involved, However; the same marketing strategy can also prove to be a risk for some artists who dare to compete with more popular musicians, but overall, its a win-win situation.
