 Cam'ron
After surviving an (alleged) carjacking, will this be Cam's Season to shine?

Killa Cam's so sure that fans will be feeling his soundtrack to the movie of the same name that he's dubbed it Killa Season (April 25). With guests like Hell Rell, Juelz Santana and his Diplomats crew, the album is sure to bring some street heat. Among the candidates for a first single are "Get 'Em Daddy" and "Do Your Thing."

Prediction: He's rocked it pink and purple, but this time Cam's aiming for green.

 Fugees
Can you really go home again?

A decade between albums is a long time in any genre, but in hip-hop it's a lifetime. Which is why it's hard to know what to expect from reunited Fugees Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras. Among the songs the trio have been working on are "Be Easy," on which the three exchange verses, with Hill employing a speedy, spoken-word-type of flow, while Clef and Pras use a more traditional delivery. "I got moxie, I'm so damn cocky/ Industry tried to block me like cops and paparazzi," Hill raps. "I see you looking, but you better take it easy," Clef advises during the chorus.

Prediction: Old heads will likely check the album out to catch up with one of the biggest hip-hop acts of all time, but they'll have to win new fans over with some hot tracks.

 Busta Rhymes
Does Busta still have what the people want?

A new label, a new boss and a new look. Busta was finishing his Aftermath debut under the guidance of Dr. Dre in late 2005 as the album's first single, "Touch It," began heating up airwaves. After chopping his trademark dreadlocks, it seems like Busta is primed for a fresh start.

Prediction: With Dre executive producing the project and Swizz Beatz putting his touch on "Touch It," Busta might just get the career CPR he's been looking for.
Fall Out Boy
Will fans want to "Dance, Dance" with the emo popsters again?

With their surprise hit From Under the Cork Tree still going strong, the fellas in Fall Out Boy tell us they've got most of their follow-up written and are hoping to start recording next summer and have it out by the end of 2006. They also said they want Babyface to produce it. "He said he wants to do it, but nothing's confirmed yet. I swear to God, he's going to do at least six songs with us," bassist Pete Wentz said. There's no confirmation yet on the potentially bizarre hookup, but the band at least plans to demo some songs with 'Face.

Prediction: Right band, right time, they're smart to try and strike again while the iron's still hot.

 Fergie
Are the Black Eyed Peas as good in individual servings?

If everything goes according to plan, we should get solo albums from all of the Black Eyed Peas this year, but it's likely that the debut from the group's newest member, vocalist Fergie, will get the most attention. "It's beautiful, it's just such a personal thing and I've been wanting to do this ever since I was a little girl — it's my lifetime project," Fergie said of her still-untitled album. "I don't want to give too much away; all I'm gonna say is it's gonna be more personal and a deeper look into who I am as a person, and I'm more vulnerable than I am with the Peas."

Prediction: Fans love her in the Peas, but the jury's out on whether Fergie can stand on her own.
