Ready For A New Drake Mixtape? It Could Be Here Very Soon

Yes, please.

On "0-100/The Catch Up," Drake professes that he and his label, OVO Sound, "already got Spring 2015 poppin'." He then runs through the roster: "PND droppin', OB droppin', Majid Jordan droppin', not to mention me droppin'."

Well, it looks like Spring could come a little early next year.

In an interview with NBATV, NBA player DeMar DeRozan, who plays for Drizzy's hometown Toronto Raptors, may have let some exclusive news slip.

"It's incredible having that type of artist of his magnitude be able to support us the way he do," the 25-year-old said of the Nothing Was The Same rapper, who often sits courtside at games, and loads his Instagram with Raptors-related flicks.

"Because he definitely really do support us; it's not just for show. He come in the locker room, [we] talk to him. I talked to him the other night. Actually, he said he wants to give me his mixtape that come out in January."

Wait...what?!

Of course, this February marked five years since the Young Money signee dropped his last mixtape, So Far Gone. That project catapulted Drake to mainstream success, and it's only been albums since then, with the most recent, Nothing Was The Same, dropping last September.

DeRozan didn't go into any more details, but the nonchalance with which he dropped that tidbit made it feel real -- not like he was making something up for the interview, or using hyperbole. But like Drake actually wanted to give him his mixtape recently.

Hopefully, he'll give it to all of us this January.
