J. Cole's Tour, Big Sean's Birthday, Wale's Album And Other Calendar-Worthy Hip-Hop Moments For March

A lot to look forward to.

After what many felt was a lackluster 2014 for rap music, 2015 is already off to a thundering start.

With projects from the likes of Drake, Big Sean, Chris Brown & Tyga, Lupe Fiasco, Joey Bada$$, Rae Sremmurd and Kid Ink already in rotation, there's plenty more on the way. The month of March will bring us a new EP from G-unit, Wale's first album in almost two years, Action Bronson's debut album, Ludacris' long-awaited next solo album, and plenty more.

Plus, we celebrate the birthdays of some of hip-hop's biggest names, as well as the lives of rap greats like the Notorious B.I.G. and Eazy-E.
