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.
