December 2020 New Music Releases
Just like that, 2020, which has been full of ups, downs and unpredictable circumstances, is coming to a close, but not without some new releases in hip-hop. This month, Future and Lil Uzi Vert finally released their collaborative mixtape, Pluto x Baby Pluto. Then, 2 Chainz came with So Help Me God. There was also Jeezy's The Recession 2.
For the month of December, Kid Cudi returns with his lauded Man on the Moon series, Maryland's own Rico Nasty is delivering her debut LP and YFN Lucci is offering the third installment of his Wish Me Well series. Take a look below to see what's in store for the last month of the year.
Starting off month number 12, Rico Nasty is coming through with her very first solo album, Nightmare Vacation, on Dec. 4. She officially announced the LP, which features production from Take a Daytrip, Tay Keith and more, over the summer and shared an endearing letter with fans via social media. In short, Rico explained that the album title is essentially a metaphor as well as an oxymoron. Prior to the album's arrival, Rico teased fans with songs "iPhone," "Own It," "Don't Like Me" featuring Gucci Mane and Don Tolliver, and "OHFR?." Those tracks are set to appear on the effort as well as "Back and Forth" with Aminé. Last April, Rico released her joint mixtape, Anger Management, with producer Kenny Beats.
YFN Lucci's Wish Me Well 3 arrives on Dec. 4 as well. While the details surrounding the album are scarce at the moment, the Atlanta-bred melodic rhymer dropped his track "Man Down" with an accompanying video about a month before the LP's arrival. He offered the song "Sept 7th" in October, too. YFN Lucci's most recent effort, HIStory, Lost Pages, came out back in February, so he definitely has been putting in hard work in the studio. Lucci's joint "Wet (She Got That...)" is making waves as well, along with the remix featuring 2020 XXL Freshman Mulatto. The second installment of Lucci's Wish Me Well series dropped in 2016, and the initial mixtape came out in 2014.
In October, Kid Cudi surprised his legion of fans when he revealed that he would be adding a new installment of his Man on the Moon series after previously stating there would be no continuation. The Cleveland rapper unveiled the news that Man on the Moon III was arriving in a video montage that included shots of him performing, walking away from a burning car and more as the sound of a heartbeat echoes. A silhouette of Cudi looking at a blood moon and smoking a blunt closed out the clip. Man on the Moon III: The Chosen arrives Dec. 11.
