After more than a year of rumor and speculation, it finally seems that the long-gestating ASAP Mob project Cozy Tapes Vol. 1 might finally see the light of day. Last night, ASAP Rocky took to Twitter to announce that the collaboration had finally been completed.

Earlier this month, ASAP Ferg gave an update about the project while on tour in Australia with Anderson .Paak. In an interview with interview with Triple J, he said that the album is "dropping soon." He added, "We actually shot the album cover already and everything is getting edited and mixed up and everything. I don't know exactly when it's dropping—I don't have a date. I'm the wrong person to ask. I presume it's coming out soon 'cause we shot the cover. This album is gonna be called the Cozy Tapes."
Now just because Cozy Tapes has been finished doesn't necessarily mean that we're going to hear the music on it anytime soon. This is obviously a fantastic development, but the ASAP Mob are known for taking their time releasing new music. According to Rocky, while the project is finished, it still might be some time before it gets out into the hands of the people.
In the meantime, you can revisit the track "Yamborghini High," the first single off of Cozy Tapes, and a touching tribute to the Mob's departed leader ASAP Yams which debuted back in January.
