So Drake may pull a DMX and drop another album this year, and who does
MTV ask about it? Motherfucking Mack Maine. Yeah, that makes total sense..
“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.”
Thing is, this ain’t 1998 and Drake ain’t DMX. Dropping another album could prove more harmful than beneficial, because what fans will get is some rushed, likely half-assed product that will probably get torn apart critically. My advice is to stick to the R&B mixtape, then drop your sophomore album next year.
