Drake Dropping A New Album This Year?

It was spring 1998. DMX was the hottest cat in hip-hop and released his SoundScan-murdering debut LP It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. That winter, X came right back with another scorcher, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood.

OK, speed up 12 years. We all know about Drake’s popularity. His debut, Thank Me Later, came out this past spring, and believe it or not, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Drizzy could come right back with another album just in time for Christmas.

“Drake’s crazy,” Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV News last week. “He’s doing a mixtape right now. He called me one night, like 2 in the morning. He has the intro done for the new album. We was discussing dates where he should come back. That’ll be soon. And this mixtape, he’s gonna put that out quick. His formula is crazy. He works fast. I can’t give the secret away to the formula. He’s a musical genius. The way he and [producer] 40 put things together is crazy.”

When we asked Mack if Drake was putting out another LP before next summer, he simply said, “Real possible! What we discussed, definitely, what me and him discussed.”

Such a quick turnaround between Thank Me Later and its follow-up is a simple case of supply and demand.

“It makes sense,” Mack said. “Like DMX and those guys [at Def Jam]. They dropped two in one year. I think 50 [Cent] did two in one year. If it wasn’t a year, it was right around that time. [Drake’s] hot like that. Why not? Give them what they want.”

When asked if Drizzy would have an album in the marketplace in time for it to be a stocking stuffer around the holidays, Mack Mizzle smiled and advised us to “expect the unexpected.”

Regardless of when the new LP comes out, all signs point toward Drake’s R&B mixtape, It’s Never Enough, to come this year. There has been a smattering of Drake records popping up randomly on the Internet recently, such as “What If I Kissed You.”

    I heard from a fan of a fan u had an obsession w a grl like me. While cece was in the club the DJ had her 4ever rising as he od’d her body w beats. As young nation was dancing in the streets having fun spinning young money. G4 hit me on the bold told me, baby ill b on my way im coming back home. My 1 is yearning for the wetness keep her nice n warm. Told my baby no worries daddy this 1s grown stay on ur grind keep me on ur mind. Jus dont b la8 n dont cum 2 soon shes in need so make sure u bring that heat. Ha ha baby im on the jet travling the need of speed keep rocn those heels n ill b home soon as i get the ATF family. Cool my 1 cos this party got no love 4 lames no more, we leave boys @ the door saying come back when u grown. The DJ brought our groove back, thats when we found our keys. We put em on n roc’d it as if we was Mr. Smith all the lovas showed hearts as we poped that Ace we gave a toast 2 the good life.. Yea we got right. The DJ announced see fellas when u learn 2 b men you might jus get on the level of wealth but til then keep getting that drama from ur baby mama’s.
    Thats when young money released the stampede and told their young nation do ur thang let go of the pain like its rain. Right then n there the DJ got crazy n turned the tables announced yea ladies they had their lame ass run but now its time 4 sum pure love.
    Trina, Nikki, n Ri Ri looked all dolled up as Wayne went off on sum space balls shit took us back 2 that space jam hit em hard shit. Dre was like hold up wait a min ur gonna need the detox 4 ur ass. Thats when we all went back 2 the cabbage patch kid and mead those men start running. Then diggy n jb converted the rest of the non believers. Which means bye bye haterz.
    As 50 n EM walked in the joint bottles got poped. Timbo said welcome 2 the hop. Thats when dream brought milian n trey had kerri both shut the shit down had k n j n loso like ddddaaaammmnnn omg.com
    Jada couldnt help but ask diddy could he b on the remix, It was all brand new.
    Drake had the city of lights with him thats when the chameleon appeared and all u heard was so amazing so amazing amazing as if it was her theme music. She made u feel like a virgin sr8 appologising like damn dont ever leave me again im sorry. We w the bbc n lions den now u aint got a want 4 nothing thats my promise 4 life.
    Yea respect was something u lacked so you experienced a love jack best believe no prayer goes un answered. So dont make me call luda 4 a favor. Bun b became ill will as nas killled the x. They got swizz w there beatz and let there pitbulls hungry roaming the streets. Hell was dark n we coming back w a vengence. We did something unheard of mars joined venus on this planet called love. No more vs shit we on that next level new money shit, its time 2 join 2gether let the angels hear our sound.
    Come 1 come all come join in the harmony of our sound. No more drama do away w all the negative FAITH is back n 4 ur sake I really hope its something u never lacked.

    If he does make a new album, I know ima try to be one of the first people in england to get it, it sucks that Canada and N. America will probably get it before we do

  • MzzButterfly

    and Mrs. AD Graham who the hell are you talkin to? You wish you were Mrs. Aubrey, unless you Nicki Minaj :s ………

  • Maria Javier

    He is a genius…Everybody should give him props for being so talented…If I was in his position right now, iwould never want to stop either…Everybody loves the way he expresses himself, and he had perfected it…I can get into his shoes right now and understand him clearly! He is the best and i look up 2 him because of his hard work…I am following the drizzy/carter route…Thank You and I will always support you Aubrey Drake Graham….!God bless you!!!

  • What’s DMX got to do with it?

  • Skye

    I like Drake but the rap industry will take him and turn him into someone that I know he isn’t. He’s a very smart guy with his moms right behind. She don’t take noooo mess LOL. But Drake it you ever read this remember, always pray and surround yourself with people who really care. Everyone cares right now, but when your down and out they will not even pick up there phone. I will be your fan that prays for your mother & you. GOD BLESS AKA Skye

    Oh yea Drake if you ever need a real woman in your video shoot hit me up. I’m not a model chick, I’m the chick that guys will want to settle down with. So go ahead and get to spitting so I can show these video chicks how a woman should carry herself
