Drake's surprise mixtape "If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late," took the world by storm in February. Rumors about another surprise release are now floating around -- this time with fellow rapper Future.
According to the Hot New Hip Hop website, Drake and Future are rumored to be releasing a mixtape they did together as early as Friday. No official announcement has been made and as of right now the mixtape has not yet been released.
The Independent reports that OVO artist posted a photo on Instagram of what looks like an album cover with a purple owl on top of a purple heart. However, the post was quickly taken down.
Angela Yee, of New York's Power 105.1 show "The Breakfast Club," accidentally let something slip on the air about a possible mixtape between the two rappers. She responded on Twitter with a mouth-cover up emoji.
Twitter continued to buzz Thursday when DJ Skee tweeted about how two people were going to break the internet with the release of a mixtape that came "out of left field." The tweet can be seen below:
Damn 2 people are about to break the internet tomorrow with this mixtape coming out of left field...

Drake has already had a ton of success in 2015, especially with mixtapes. His surprise album, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” became the first album released this year to sell at least one million copies, Billboard reported back in August. The total then stood at 1.007 million copies sold.
Platinum status is something Drake should be used to by now. The rapper’s prior albums, 2013’s “Nothing Was the Same,” 2011’s “Take Care,” and 2010’s “Thank Me Later,” also all sold over one million copies. To date, Meek Mill's "Dreams Worth More Than Money," has sold over 313,000 copies in the U.S.
It is almost a guarantee than if both rappers do release a co-op mixtape it will immediately climb the charts. Future's latest album, "DS2" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and has sold over 205,000 copies so far.
