After ending an uncharacteristically long drought with the release of his self-titled album last Friday, Future has already announced the release of his next full-length — and fans of the Atlantan hip-hop star won’t have to wait long. The rapper’s sixth studio album, HNDRXX, drops this Friday.

“The album I always wanted to make, timing is everything & with that being said #HNDRXX link in my bio,” Future wrote in an Instagram post that displayed the album’s apparent artwork. And, while Future sported no guest features, he tagged the image with Rihanna and the Weeknd’s handles.

Future elaborated on his current mindset in a subsequent Instagram post:

who told u,you couldn’t b exactly who u wanted to be? They lied,they wasn’t bold they didn’t have the ambition they didn’t have the courage they was mislead they didn’t believe in they self when no one else would they cared about what other people thought of them they gave up not knowing god wouldn’t give u more than u could handle they didn’t sew seeds they didn’t have the passion they didn’t have the drive they didn’t tell u all of there flaws because they was scared of not being accepted by there peers they said I can’t I tried I need help but not me #HNDRXX

Future performed the Future cut “Draco” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. Last week, he announced an extensive spring tour that will include support from Migos, Young Thug, A$AP Ferg, and more.
