OVO Sound boss Drake knows how fast time flies. The hip-hop superstar went online this week to remember and celebrate the five-year anniversary of his and longtime pal/collaborator Future‘s What A Time To Be Alive collaborative album.
Drake Celebrates 5-Year Anniversary
The Toronto. native hit up Instagram to share the project’s cover art. He also admitted the title seems to – unfortunately – fit the times people are currently living in.
“@future 5 YEARS AGO TODAY 🤧🦉🦅💨💎💵🔌 What A Time To Be Alive…title feels more fitting for right now smh” -Drake’s Instagram
“Absolute classic!” -Conor McGregor
“Drop Part 2 .. 🙄🙄🙄” -Doe Boy
In April 2019, Future went online with footage of himself alongside Drizzy and appeared to confirmed a much-needed follow-up album. Despite the teaser, they never officially put out a sequel.
Weeks prior, buzz developed about Drake and Future low-key piecing together a new album.
For those of you remember, Future was rumored to drop HNDRXX 2 as a surprise release; but scrapped it last second to not affect with the release of Gunna’s Drip or Drown 2 project. Well according to those same sources, Future and Drake have already completed a sequel to 2015’s What a Time to be Alive. The effort is said to be entirely new music and is not leftovers from their recording sessions over the last few years. It’s unclear when the two found time to lock in some studio time together; but we’re assuming Drake may be the deciding factor if it comes out or not. (OnSmash)
