Drake hit up the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington on September 16th for a stop on his “Summer Sixteen” tour.
During the show, Drizzy announced that he has been working on new music while on tour, but he is not sure what he is going to do with the songs yet:
“I’ve been on this tour, I’m recording new music. I’m about like maybe 6, 7 new songs in, just getting warmed up. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, I don’t know what it’s going to be, but what I do know is I can’t wait to come back to the motherfucking Tacoma Dome and perform all that shit for y’all.”
The 6 God did hint that he was working on a new mixtape to release during his Kansas City concert back in July, so it’s possible that could be the project he is talking about. You can watch a couple of clips of Drizzy Drake telling the crowd in Washington that he is 6 – 7 songs in on a new project after the jump below!
While on the red carpet at the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards, Zaytoven chopped it up with Billboard to give a little update on his and Future‘s upcoming collaboration project – Beast Mode 16.
“We should be dropping a single within two weeks and it’s featuring Drake.”
So as you can see, Drake will be featured on the first single off Future and Zay‘s Beast Mode 16 project that will premiere in a couple of weeks.
The producer also took part in another interview recently, where he revealed the name of the collaboration will be “Used To Be“!
Back in 2014, Usher mentioned in an interview that he has an upcoming collaboration with Drake called “Slow Motion” all about relationships.
Everyone thought the song would appear on Usher‘s new album, Hard II Love, which dropped a few days ago on September 16th, but unfortunately it wasn’t on there.
In an interview with Complex, Usher revealed that he had to cut the Drizzy track from his album as it didn’t fit the project. However, he did also the say that “Slow Motion” will be released at some point in the future!
After bringing out NBA player LeBron James in Ohio last month, Drake brought out Kevin Durant during his “Summer Sixteen” tour stop in Oakland, California on September 13th.
Drizzy brought out his “brother” for a few minutes on stage at the Oracle Arena, which is of course the home of the Golden State Warriors who KD now plays for.

In an interview with KC, producer Zaytoven was asked about the upcoming projects he is working on to which he revealed some news about the Drake and Gucci Mane collaboration project.
Zaytoven mentioned that before 2016 ends Drizzy and GuWop will have “definitely” dropped their The 6ers joint project:
“Before the year is up you should be on the look out for The 6ers, which is Gucci Mane and Drake. That’s definitely on the way. I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to be on the project, but I’ll be all over it.”
Who is looking forward to hearing The 6ers?
