Keyshia Cole and K. Michelle Are Going on Tour Together
Get your finger snaps, neck rolls and shower-singing voices ready: Keyshia Cole and K. Michelle are uniting for a joint tour! The former Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta star tweeted birthday sentiments to Keyshia yesterday (October 15), also teasing a 2015 tour: “Can’t wait to hit the road with u in Jan and give the ladies a REAL experience!” Hopefully that comes with some new music from the curvy soprano, who’s been working on her sophomore album. As for Cole, her sixth studio album, Point of No Return, dropped last week, so she’ll have plenty of new records to perform.

Lupe Fiasco Gets a Release Date
Lupe Fiasco knows how to troll with purpose. Just days after blaming Atlantic Records for holding up his long-gestating Tetsou & Youth album and announcing a shadefully titled “mini-project” called Lost in the Atlantic, the label has responded by spitting out a release date for Lu’s fifth studio album: January 20, 2015. Cue emoji praise hands! While the Chicago wordsmith has teased two records from the album’s pre-release—“Lilies” and “Haile Selassie”—there’s no word yet on whether Lost in the Atlantic is still coming now that Tetsou & Youth has a solid date.

Big Sean Has “Something” in the Works With Eminem
Two of Detroit’s finest rappers are finally uniting. Big Sean says he’s in the process of working with 8 Mile’s own Eminem. “You can expect a little something-something sooner or later,” Sean told CBS Detroit of the overdue collaboration. The sorta-confirmation comes after the two artists popped up in a photo on Big Sean’s Instagram account last year, and as the G.O.O.D. Music vet gears up for his third solo studio album, which he’s said will also feature a Kanye cameo. As for Em, his Shady XV greatest hits compilation project, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Shady Records, drops November 24, with one disc of classic material (50 Cent’s “In da Club,” Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”) and another with original tracks from Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, D12 and Marshall Mathers himself.
