"I'm coming out with an EP at the end of this month that will be accompanying the movie 'LUV.' And then I got a mixtape, my first mixtape I ever done in my life, will be coming out in April. And then an album in September." His new project in September will mark his tenth studio album.

The rapper-actor also revealed details about his new film in which he played a producer role. "It's a coming of age story for an inner city kid who actually goes out with his uncle for a day," he shared.
