Drake and Future release joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’

"It's a little soundtrack for the people who need it right now," Drake tells Beats 1 listeners

Drake and Future’s joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ has been released.

The mixtape will be available as an Apple Music exclusive for one week and was debuted by Drake on his OVO Sound Radio show on Apple’s Beats 1 last night (September 20).

“When you get around Future it’s like a vortex,” Drake said while presenting OVO Sound Radio. He went on to explain that he originally went to Future’s hometown of Atlanta to do “a few songs” but the collaboration grew into something more considerable. “It’s a little soundtrack for the people who need it right now,” Drake added.

Drake and Future toured the US together earlier this year. Future’s most recent LP, ‘DS2’, which was released in July, featured Drake on ‘Where Ya At’. Meanwhile, Drake is believed to be working on new studio album ‘Views From The 6’, having already released solo mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ already in 2015.
