Since Cilvia Demo was released in January of 2014, fans of Isaiah Rashad have demanded more. Patience is a common practice among all TDE artists, a frequent reminder to fans that it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality. Even though Cilvia Demo sounds as fresh today as it did the day it was first released, fans are ready for a follow-up album. It looks like they’re going to get one sooner than later.

In a now-deleted Instagram comment, Rashad responded to a fan who asked if he was dropping an album in 2015. “Yes actually,” he replied.

Rashad had to have known the reply would be screenshot by a fan and carried around the internet like a Snoopy balloon at the Macys’ Thanksgiving Parade. That is how the internet works in the Social Media Age. In fact, deleting the comment doesn’t do anything but infer that maybe this was a premature announcement. TDE is pretty tight-lipped about their release schedule.

Fans can only hope that Isaiah has spoken his next album into existence before we head into 2016. Considering the Chattanooga, Tennessee native recently released a new single ("Nelly"), a project around the corner isn't all that surprising. 

We’ve already received albums from Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock in 2015, while ScHoolboy Q is inching closer and closer to his next full-length as seen through his Snapchat and various tweets. Ab-Soul has been on a monster run with guest features, all while finishing up his “love story” album. SZA has been the least vocal artist on the TDE roster, but she’s spent a good portion of the year performing live and is fresh off a collaboration with the "Cha Cha" man D.R.A.M.

TDE is clearly poised to keep the momentum rolling into the next calendar year, and Isaiah Rashad's snowball is getting bigger by the day.
