Along with the rest of the Mob, A$AP Rocky has been going through some hard times since the release of his debut album Long.Live.A$AP including the death of A$AP Yams and a public break up. He’s taken the silent route over the years and worked tirelessly on his new album and at long last, we have a possible release date for it.

Amazon reports that A.L.L.A. will be released on May 26th just over seven weeks from now which doesn’t seem unlikely considering how a lot of rappers have been going about releasing projects recently.

Previously: A$AP Rocky Covers Complex (April / May 2015)

UPDATE: We have better news for you fans today as Hitsdailydouble is reporting that the album is scheduled to May 12, same day as Snoop Dogg’s Bush. We hope it’s the truth.

There’s barely been any response on Young Thug’s side to the backlash of wanting to name his debut album Tha Carter VI after Lil Wayne’s series. Although he’s made it clear that he looks up to Wayne as his biggest inspiration, it seems disrespectful to drop this album when Wayne’s Tha Carter V is being held up by Birdman.

But that’s not stopping anything. Young Thug uploaded the above image to his Instagram with the caption simply reading:

4/17

Could we really be hearing the album in just 9 days? We’ll keep you posted. For now, listen to ‘Check’ here.

UPDATE: In a short video on Instagram, Young Thug say that he is changing the mixtape’s title from Carter VI to Barter VI to avoid legal action. This probably means a new cover is on its way too.
