“Cortez Bryant heard the fans y’all. The greatest mixtape of all time is coming to streaming services! I can’t say the date but Tez has assured me that it’s going to happen this year! IT ONLY MAKES SENSE!”

As this Halloween (October 31st) marks the 10-year anniversary of No Ceilings, you would guess that this is when Tune‘s team plan to release it on streaming services, which is also similar to what Drake did with his So Far Gone mixtape on its 10-year anniversary.

While discussing Funeral, Tunechi says Tez Poe has a release date for the project, but he doesn’t want to announce it as of right now and so it’s “coming soon”. Tune even explained that he never records music for a specific album; he just records a bunch of songs and lets Tez pick which ones will appear on the certain project. It is very “rare” Weezy is in the “I’m about to go record this album” mode as it has only ever happened once, which was when he was locked up in jail!
