Despite not releasing a full-length album in 2015, Wiz Khalifa has ended the calendar year strong.

In October the Pittsburgh native became the first hip-hop artist to have a video reach one billion views on YouTube, in November his artist Ty Dolla $ign released his major label debut, and earlier this month Khalifa released his impressive mixtape, Cabin Fever 3.

Using the events of the past three months as momentum, Khalifa is "very busy" finishing up his new album. The title for the forthcoming LP, which will be his sixth in total and the fourth as a major label signee, was revealed back in May.

Several singles have been released this year that could find a home on the impending full-length, including "Burn Slow," "No Social Media" and, more recently, "King of Everything."

In addition, the now-veteran rapper also has plans to release a Taylor Gang compilation album in '16, which he shared with a fan via Twitter on Saturday.
