Not too long ago, two rappers at the peak of their powers, Drake and Future, made a collaborative mixtape called 'What A Time To Be Alive', which was one of the best things to hit the hip-hop scene in 2015.
It created a huge buzz with fans and also spawned the smash hits 'Jumpman' (which later resurfaced on Kanye West's 'Facts') and 'Big Rings'. The success of the mixtape led to them co-headlining a concert tour, and it even made the executive producer of the album, Metro Boomin, a legitimate star. And of late, the rappers have been dropping a slew of concrete clues on social media that a new collaboration is definitely in the works!
Drake posted an Instagram story last week to tease a new team-up with Future called 'Life Is Good'. Drake had the glowing words "Life is Good. Future + Drake,” under a photo of his computer screen and hookah. Future was also tagged in the photo, and then reposted the story shortly after it went live on social media. Drake also hinted at the imminent arrival of 'Life Is Good', saying it would be coming "soon soon."
Future had also previously made several guest appearances at some of Drake's Assassination Vacation Tour dates in Europe. After one of these performances, the duo teased potential new music on Future's social media account. In the Instagram story, both rappers technically hint that ‘What a Time To Be Alive 2’ was in the works. "What's that? We gotta cook that up. That two," said Drake, gesturing with two fingers up. This "two" was the crucial element in convincing fans that any joint project involving the two rappers might be titled 'What a Time to Be Alive 2'.
And the hype train just kept gathering steam when, in December 2019, word spread that Drake and Future had been shooting a music video at a fast-food chain in Atlanta. And snippets of their work together has kept popping up online consistently. Back in August last year, Future teased a snippet of a track he had done with Drake called 'I Know' before a second snippet emerged last month. And just last week, the full version of 'I Know' was leaked online before being taken down again.
So on the basis of all this overwhelming evidence, we'd say that we can expect at least two new tracks, if not a whole new mixtape, from Drizzy and Future... in the future! What a time to be alive indeed!
