8 Collaboration Albums We Hope To See This Year

Collaboration is a major aspect of all music, and in recent years, joint projects seem to be the new trend in Hip Hop. 2 Chainz has already released an album with Lil Wayne, and Big Sean just recently dropped an EP with Jhene Aiko. The idea is to combine two great artist, who are not already in a formal group, to form an incredible music piece together.  Many artist, such as Beyonce with Jay-Z and Drake with Lil Wayne, have even went on tour together sharing the main set. Here are some collaboration albums, EPs, and mixtapes we hope to see this year.

Fabolous & Jadakiss

The pair claimed they had a joint mixtape, Freddy vs Jason, in the works awhile ago. After recently dropping a freestyle to Future's "Wicked" the annoucment seems to be true. For two rappers of such high caliber, who many have in their "Top 5 of All Time" list, this project will definitely garner plenty of attention. Who do you think will win?

Fat Joe & Remy Ma

A hit record trumps everything, and that's exactly what Fat Joe and Remy Ma have with "All The Way Up". Both artist have been vacant from the charts for some time. A full album from these two vets could put not just put themselves, but all of New York back in the limelight.

G.O.O.D. Music

This bends the rule of having the parties involved not already in a group together, but a G.O.O.D. Music compilation album had to make this list. The label is on a crescendo in 2016! The Life of Pablo and Twenty88 have been received well by critics and fans alike. New president, Pusha T, also has an album slated for release this year, and the label recently signed Desiigner who already has a club banger with "Panda". A summer time compilation would be a great way to keep the year going on a high.

Missy Elliott & Tink

There is no evidence to this happening, or that it is even talked about, but doesn't a Missy and Tink EP make sense? The two are already well connected through Timbaland, and Tink has confirmed that Missy will be on her debut album, so a joint project isn't that far fetched. It would be a great way to continue to bring veteran Missy back into mainstream ear drums, while simultaneously introducing Tink to the main stage for the first time.

YG & Nippsey Hussle

The two have done several songs together already including the latest "FDT". Their connections to each other are almost oxymoron like being that both are in gangs, but opposing sides, and both are one of the few popular California rappers not directly involved with Dr. Dre. It's those unique connections coupled with a demand for more West Coast music that could make a joint mixtape thrive.

Chris Brown & Sevyn Streeter

Many fans have complained that Chris Brown doesn't make much R&B styled music anymore, so to link with his protege, R&B songstress Sevyn Streeter, could easily fill that void. The pairing would also help Sevyn's notoriety in the industry since everything Chris does gets mass attention. Chris has already been featured on her songs "Don't Kill The Fun" and "It Won't Stop Remix", plus Sevyn helped write his hit "Fine China". A short EP could be just write for both.

Jay-Z & Kanye West

Another entry via a loophole since the two have worked together, but are mostly solo artist. A sequel to the 2011 album Watch The Throne would be fantastic! Jay is seemingly on daddy duty full time, so the only people that have a strong chance to pull him out of his music retirement would be wife Beyonce or little brother Kanye. With The Throne appearing on a new song by Drake, "Pop Style", a return to the throne seems more likely than ever.

Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole

The hype for something like this would be monstrous! Even the very idea of it has garnered intense excitement, and rightfully so. These two are kings in the Hip Hop genre, and leaders in the music industry. Very much so in their prime years, a project joining them together is equivalent to Big Daddy Kane and Rakim in 1988, Jay-Z and DMX in 1999, or Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane in 2007. An unprecedented move like this would make 2016 a year to remember.
