Young Money president Mack Maine is speculating that Drake might be releasing his follow-up to Thank Me Later as soon this year! The kid don't stop working.
"Real possible! What we discussed, definitely, what me and him discussed," Maine told MTV News. He also said, "Expect the unexpected" when probed about a possible release around the Christmas holidays, which is always a financial boon to the sagging music business. It could happen; it might not.
"Drake's crazy," Maine also said. "He's doing a mixtape right now. He called me one night, like two 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." Drake keeps churning out new stuff, which is smart, since the fickle pop public forgets the very stars it helps to create when the next hot thing comes along.
Maine also told MTV News that " I can't wait to hear what he's got in store for us next. In the meantime, look out for his R&B mixtape, It's Never Enough, which seems to be coming this year as well."
Are you stoked for another Drake album this year? Thank him now, thank him later.
