The new decade has started and there are many albums that are being anticipated for the first year of the decade. Here are 5 of the biggest hip-hop albums that have had fans waiting for months and with some of them years.


  1. Ski Mask the Slump God – Untitled

It’s been a little over a year since Ski Mask has released a new project as his last release was his debut album “Stokeley”, and his fans have been waiting on a new release from him, as he has teased a new album for months now and released a single on Halloween, as he also has released a snippet of an unreleased song, but even though he hasn’t named the album yet he still has told his fans that an album is on the way.


  1. Kendrick Lamar – Untitled

Kendrick Lamar hasn’t released a new album since 2017 with his third major record album “DAMN.” His fans have been waiting since 2017 to hear new music from Kendrick, so everyone is suspecting an album to be released in 2020. We will see if his new album tops the charts like all of his previous major record albums.


  1. Juice WRLD – Untitled

After the unexpected passing of 20-year-old rapper Juice WRLD, his label released a statement saying that they would be releasing an album of the songs that haven’t been released yet, as he was one of the fastest-growing musical artists in 2018 and 2019.


  1. Playboi Carti – Whole Lotta Red

Playboi Carti blew up in 2017 with his hit single “Magnolia” and album “Playboi Carti.” Both got him featured on the 2017 XXL cover, but he announced the title of his newest project, “Whole Lotta Red” in 2018 and has constantly been telling his fans different release dates for the album, but he has not been able to release the album because people have been getting the leaked songs off the album which is pushing back the release date constantly and is making it hard for his label to let him release his album.


  1. Lil Uzi Vert – Eternal Atake

Lil Uzi blew up in 2016 with his first hit song “Money Longer” and was featured on the 2016 XXL cover, and released two projects in 2016, “Lil Uzi Vert vs The World” and “The Perfect LUV Tape” and his last album was back in 2017 with “Luv is Rage 2” and he announced his next album in 2018, but he hasn’t been able to release it because of leaked songs of his and because his label won’t let him either, but in 2020 he has been on a comeback tour and wants to release the album for his fans because of how passionate his fans have been, and he released the leading single for his album with the song “Futsal Shuffle 2020”


Those are five of the most anticipated releases for 2020 and hopefully, they will all be released this year.
