I love me some Monica Brown! Seems like yesterday that Monica put out her debut album Miss Thang, which still is relevant today! Well Mrs. Brown is back with new music, her 8th studio album titled Code Red on Septemeber 18. She is eight albums deep y’all! Talk about longevity.
Code Red has production from Polow Da Don, Rico Love, Pop&Oak and Fat Boy, among others. The lead single “Just Right For Me” featuring Lil Wayne is climbing on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs Chart. As of today (July 30), the song is at No. 23 on the chart. Monica performed the track live for the first time at BET’s inaugural Players’ Awards earlier this month.
I am always HERE for a Monica album, I really hope that she and Tamar bring this tour that Tamar Instagrammed about to fruition, that would be a dope tour! I would be there!

So…In things that should never happen news, Diddy is allegedly planning to release a sequel to the classic No Way Out album *sighs really hard, and sucks teeth really loudly* Ugggggggggggggggggh! Why can’t these artist just leave well enough alone! I didn’t like it when Mary J Blige tried to do My Life 2! I didn’t like it when Mariah tried it with EMC2! I could go on but I won’t! The problem with making sequels to classic albums, is the sequel never lives up to the original. How about we name it something else. No Way Out has to be one of my favorite albums of all time. Why Lord? *throws hands up*
According to Diddy’s new artist Grizzle *side-eye*
“I’m working on Puff Daddy’s last album,”
“It’s called No Way Out 2. It’s a crazy project. I’m very honored to be a part of it. Nobody can make an album like Puff Daddy. I’ll be actually rapping on there too.”
According to Gizzle this will be Diddy’s final album(I’ll believe this when I see it) The Pharrell assisted Finna Get Loose seems to be the first single from the album:
Diddy keeps hinting at a possible Bad Boy 20th Anniversry tour, which I am HERE for minus French Montana and with addition of a couple of other acts from Bad Boy past! Look out for my post about My Dream Bad Boy 20th Anniversry Tour lineup.

J Hud has unveiled the cover art and release date for third album, J Hud, the album is scheduled to be released on September 23 on RCA. The cover is shot against Chicago’s skyline and J Hud is giving us beat and bothered on the cover.
The album has already spawned the T.I. assisted I Can’t Describe and the Timbaland produced Walk It Out, which I absolutely love. The album is said to be 70’s inspired, hopefully it’s nothing like that song she performed at the BET Awards. I wasn’t here Effie doing Donna Summers at all!
Check out the album sampler below:
