Early Friday morning, Future took to Twitter to announce that his partner DJ Esco has a new mixtape coming called E.T.: Esco Terrestrial.
The project, which will be hosted by Future (and, to judge by the trailer, will contain new songs from the Atlanta rapper) will be released exclusively on LiveMixtapes.com and, going by that site’s countdown clock, should drop at noon on Friday. Esco created a trailer for the project, visible above.
E.T. will be mixed and mastered by Seth Firkins, according to TrillHD. Firkins, an Atlanta-based recording engineer, worked with Future on the 2012 Rihanna collab “Loveeeeeee Song,” and on the rapper’s album from the same year, Pluto 3D.
The project’s title seems to be a nod to a now-deleted Instagram post Esco made upon returning home from spending 56 days in jail in Dubai. He was arrested while in the country for marijuana possession.
Esco’s last project was the 2015 mixtape he titled after the Dubai incident, 56 Nights. Future is currently on a hot streak, having released two mixtapes already this year. In January, he dropped Purple Reign, and he followed it up less than a month later with Evol. There is also anticipation over his upcoming collaboration “I Got the Keys” with DJ Khaled and Jay Z, for which the three artists shot a video earlier this month.
Anticipation on Twitter was running unsurprisingly high.
