    5 years with no new music should be considered automatic retirement at this point imo

    he p---- like 3 stacks, created a pedestal too high for himself

    the drake formula of not really caring about every record being a classic and dropping the more life’s, dark lane demo & even care package not only helps with visibility and sustainability but keeps audience expectations tempered while keeping the pressure on him very low

    Good comparison... I think him and drake are very different artists and I wouldn’t want him to drop as much as Drake but 5 years in between albums is ridiculous and makes it seem like he doesn’t care about his fans. Surely he could’ve dropped an Untitled 2 type thing with outtakes/cut songs at least

    why not though? not to mention he could’ve gotten out his deal much sooner which he obviously always wanted to do

    even ppl saying uzi fell off and they trash his new snippets and now he not dropping at all. yeat steals his and carti’s fanbase by dropping four 20 song albums per year..times have changed

    Definitely not - I hate to ever claim to be an insider, but I have spoken to someone very close to him and it’s all kicking-off this year…
