Good news for Drake fans, it looks like the rapper will be releasing new music before the end of the year. He said so himself on the 32rd episode of OVO Sound Radio. This December, “More Life” is going to be released, which, according to him, it will mark a new direction for his music career.
It looks like “More Life” will not be a mixtape like we were used to, Drake wanting to change the direction and do a playlist of his original songs.
His full announcement included more about the inspiration and motivation behind the future release and it looks like, as the title also suggests, life itself is the starting point as well as the core theme of the album called “More Life: The Playlist”.
After his successful tour this summer, the rapper is not looking for a break but wishes to return to his work immediately. He even craves it, proving us how much he enjoys his career choice and how big a part music plays in his life: “Just really excited. I had a great tour, I had a great summer. And most people would like go probably take a break, but for me I just want to get right back to it. Be with the people again.”
It is possible that his future release might try to send a message about the whole #blacklivesmatter police shootings that had been happening lately, especially inspired by the letter he wrote after he found out about the death of Alton Sterling in July.
The serious, official looking post on his instagram talked about the mistreatment of blacks by the police forces and called it more than a hashtag, urging people to speak up more about the matter.
In the end, Drake signed his letter with “more life”.
