Drake and ScHoolboy Q give updates on their new albums

There's progress, guys.

After promising his upcoming album would be released last December, Drake's More Life release date was pushed back to 2017 without any specifics as to when it'd drop except that it would be "early."

Now, we have a bit for information as to when one of the year's most anticipated projects is coming.

While performing at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, England on Thursday night (Feb. 9) as part of his Boy Meets World Tour, Drizzy announced before leaving the stage:

"I'm excited because I'm about like a week and a half, two weeks away from finishing this project I'm working on called More Life. All that means is I get to drop a new project and at some point I get to come back and be with my people in Leeds... I go by the name of Drake and I can't wait to see you again."

Similarly, ScHoolboy Q, who announced his plans for a new album just a few days after finishing his massive 66-date international tour and nabbing a Grammy nomination for Blank Face, updated Beats 1's Zane Lowe during an interview on its follow-up.

"I’m 12 hours a day right now," Q said. "I’m hard in it right now. I’m halfway done with it already. I’ve never been this inspired this soon. As soon as I got off tour, I was inspired. I was even inspired on tour. I brought a little studio set up for the bus and laid ideas down, came back and finished them off."

He added, "This is more so my life after I made it to the point of ScHoolboy Q. I gave you me [on past projects], but I never gave you the other side of me, the father, the dude that’s actually happy, the dude that doesn’t be in the hood just hanging out, the dude that’s trying to put his homies in position now. I’m not a deadbeat father anymore. I’m in my daughter’s life. She lives with me, I’m in actively, I pick her up, take her to school every morning. It’s just a whole different Q. I want to give people a whole different side of me."
