The final scraps of Hip-Hop are here. Can you see the end in sight? Are we there yet? Snoop says yes. Childish Gambino says no. Master P is confused and R. Kelly is really more R&B than hip-hop, so he doesn't count. Either way, it's a vintage week for going home for Christmas a few weeks early.

Below you'll find a list of key albums released today, along with links to our reviews (the ones in blue). Due to our review policy (up to two weeks before release, and in some cases the week following the release), a lot of the albums won't have reviews attached to them, but hopefully this will act as a handy shopping list to take to your local record store.
