There are some interesting projects and records lined up for release in 2007. Hell 2006 was a damn good year for hip hop in my opinion. Here are some of the 2007 projects that I am particularly excited about:

Pharoahe Monch - Desire
Pharoahe Monch - Desire
Pharoahe Monch - Desire
*Ohh that's not much of a list...let me revise that. If "Push" is any indication and given the sure genius of Monch this album is going to be great. I am not going to believe it until I really see it but this album, produced by The Alchemist is a long time coming. Can't wait to hear Monch do what Monch does best, create socially aware songs with one of the best deliveries out ever. Album is also set to feature some of the best ladies in the business Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and Aretha Franklin.

Little Brother - The Getback
* Love 9th's productions and The Minstril Show was a hell of a record. Count me in for this one in 2007.

Lupe Fiasco - The Cool
* Lupe plus possible guest spots from the remaining members of Pink Floyd? Sign me up as very interested.

Ghostface & MF Doom - Swift & Changeable
* Was on a bit of Ghost O.D. at the end of 2006 and More Fish wasn't all that great but the teaming of Doom and Ghost is intriguing.

Kanye West - Graduation
* Is it possible to top his two masterpieces? I know its going to be damn hard for his head to get any larger, but you gotta be excited about a 3rd record from somebody with the skill of Kanye.

Talib Kweli & Madlib - Liberation
*Stratch that off the list. Great record. Delivers as expected. Go get it.

Talib Kweil - Ear Drum
* With production from Madlib, Hi-Tek, Kanye and Rick Rubin and guest spots by Jean Grae, Norah Jones and UGK and an already very good single ("Listen"), this album has got my attention and I'll be looking forward to it soon.

El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead
* Trent Reznor and Cat Power on a hip hop record? Hmmmm....

Common - Finding Forever
* There is a track with Kanye simply titled "Chicago" thats enough for me.

Dr. Dre - Detox
* Beatmaker extraordinaire plans to drop an album, but will it fall flat like other hip hop heavyweights (Nas, Jay-Z, Outkast) in 2006? I remain guardedly optimistic.

Kayne and Common were two of the brightest spots in hip hop in 2005 -- can't wait to hear their new stuff.

2006 was a really great year and 2007 looks just as promising. possibly more promising given some of these joints on tap.

p.s. btw, Chan Marshall has already been on a hip hop (and then some) record -- Handsome Boy Modeling School's White People (although she contributed to what was in effect an old school (circa '95) trip hop track).
