The record, which featured tracks including ‘Big Rings’ and ‘Jumpman’, was released in September 2015.
In a video posted to Future’s Instagram story yesterday (April 4), the pair teased a follow-up to that project. Drake could be seen holding two fingers up to the camera and said: “What’s that? We gotta cook that up. That two.”
Future responded: “It’s already cooked. Top secret, top secret.” You can watch a recording of the story below.

Upon the first mixtape’s release, NME awarded it four stars and wrote in a review: “‘What A Time To Be Alive’ often sounds more like a Drake album than the jazzier, busier records that Future usually creates. Yet the Atlanta rapper dominates the record, demonstrating his impressive adaptability.”
Meanwhile, Drake paid tribute to Nipsey Hussle at his first of seven shows in London earlier this week (April 1). Hussle was shot and killed in LA last weekend (March 31).
While performing at The O2, Drake projected an image of Hussle’s face onto the floor before he performed ‘Elevate’. Before the song kicked in, he told the crowd: “Want you to make some noise for the people who love you unconditionally because you never know how short life is.”
