Saturday evening (June 12), Duck made a guest appearance at the Ultimate Rap League’s NOME XI fight rap event to show support by depositing $ 50,000 for the winner. After appearing on stage, Drizzy sat down for an interview on the live streaming app, Caffeine, with fight rap maven Nunu Nellz and fight rapper Tsu Surf, where Drake revealed his new Boy in love certified the album will be released in the next few months.
Drizzy let the cat out of the bag while discussing the match between Murda Mook and Reed Dollaz set to take place during the Summer Madness event in late summer. Drake said he wanted to come back to witness it in person. “I’ll be there. My album will be out by then,” Drake confirmed.
CLB was announced as fall in january. Drake later admitted that he might be pushed back by some people on the project. “They hated views like they would CLB, but it’s music to grow into,” he said last November.
At the end of January, he delayed album release, citing a number of reasons. “I was planning on releasing my album this month, but between surgery and rehab my energy was put into recovery,” Drake wrote in an article on his IG story. “I’m lucky to be back on my feet, feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t drop in January. I can’t wait to share it with all of you in 2021.”
That’s not to say that Drizzy kept his fans without a new chune. In March he gave up Scary Hours 2 tracks including “What’s Next”, “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” with frequent collaborator Rick Ross and “Wants and Needs” with Lil Baby.
