Any time an artist attempts to drop two albums in one year, comparisons to a 1998 DMX (and a 2003 50 Cent) are only sure to follow. That’s exactly what happened when this MTV clip of Mack Maine surfaced earlier today. Mack, who is one of the biggest players in the YMCMB movement, said that he recently spoke to Drake and that the wheels are in motion for another album very soon. As in before next summer, soon. Sooner or later, Drake will let go of the R&B tape he’s been speaking about for weeks, but according to Mack, the intro for the new album is already done.
Really, I don’t feel one way or the other about it. They know what’s going on in those offices more than I do. You want to give the fans what they want, but you also don’t want to oversaturate yourself to a point where people don’t want to hear from you. It’s a thin line but one that has to be balanced perfectly in order to achieve the success they have (Cash Money) throughout the years. At this point, however, Young Money could be looking at a line up of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne again and Drake all before next spring hits.
