Future hadn't dropped any projects in 2018 until he surprised with the commercial mixtape Beast Mode 2 last month.
Ninth months without a project is nothing for most artists, but Future has always been Mr. Prolific.
In the wake of Beast Mode 2, the tape's producer Zaytoven predicted Mr. Hendrix was about to go on the kind of run he did when the original Beast Mode dropped in 2015.
"I think this project is definitely needed for what’s going on right now. As far as how it fits, and how he had his run last time, I think this is the spark of another run like that for Future."
Now it looks like that run is going to include a new Future album -- and soon.
Future is going on tour with Nicki Minaj next month, and some of the stops now include this message for potential ticket buyers.
“Every pair of tickets for this show includes a physical CD of Nicki Minaj’s forthcoming album, Queen and a physical CD of Future’s forthcoming album (TBA). You will receive an email with instructions on how to redeem this offer approximately 7 days after your ticket purchase.”
If it is a proper album, it would be the first since he went back to back with Future and Hndrxx in February of 2017.
