Drake Plans to Release New EP in December
Remember when Drake randomly released ‘Jodeci Freestyle,’ ‘The Motion,’ ‘Over Here’ and his remix of ‘Versace’ at stupid o’clock that late June night (or should I say morning)? Well, thunder could be striking twice, so to speak.
During an interview with VIBE, Drizzy announced plans to release another batch of unreleased songs before the end of the year. Two of these will likely be the hotly anticipated, Hit-Boy-produced ‘Trophies,’ which he previewed during a tour stop in Brooklyn earlier this month, and the much-discussed ‘Wu-Tang Forever‘ remix featuring select members of the Clan.
“Not an EP, but maybe a blog thing like how I did ‘Versace,’ ‘The Motion,’ all those in one night,” Drake said. “I’ll probably do ‘Trophies’ and three or four other records. ['Wu-Tang Forever (Remix)'] will probably come out with all that stuff — I hope. It’s on 40. He has all the verses.”
It’s anyone’s guess what the remaining two or three records might be. Producer DJ Dahi — the man responsible for ‘Worst Behavior’ — told VIBE he was cooking up another collaboration with the OVO Star, while Just Blaze previously revealed to Hip-Hop Wired that he was working on three beats for ‘Nothing Was the Same.’
Either way, Drake is apparently sitting on a stash-load of unreleased music.
“Drake probably has almost an album’s worth of stuff recorded that he could put out at any time,” says ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ producer Nineteen85. “Songs that basically are ready to go. And I’m not talking about throwaway records. I’m talking about finished songs that most artists would beg to have.”
To quote the man himself: just wait on it.
