It's been nearly five months since Drake last dropped some new music with the June release of "Signs," but it appears the Toronto rapper is gearing up for something new.

During a recent performance in Australia for his Boy Meets World tour, Drake told the crowd about a fan he met at the airport who had one burning question to ask him. "I landed at the airport here, there was this kid working there and the first thing he said to me was, 'Hey, man, great to have you. When you dropping some new shit, man?'" said Drizzy.

The rapper continued, "That's love to me. I really do appreciate that. Just know I'm always working for you. I'm never sitting around wasting my time. So, I got shit coming for you, don't worry."

In related Drake news, the More Life rapper recently received high praise from Murder Inc. co-founder Irv Gotti. While appearing on the Drink Champs podcast with N.O.R.E., Gotti called Drizzy a "genius" and said he would have sold even more records than today if he was around in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

"If Drake was in my era, Drake would be selling 15 million, 20 million a clip," Gotti said during the show. "Do you realize this? So right now, he sells three, four. If he was in my era, he'd be selling 15, 20. I know this, so I'm like, once he does something outside the music genre, he's gonna see how colossal he is. That nigga's colossal. He's a genius. That motherfucker's a genius, okay? Drizzy for sure is a genius, yo. He's, dare I say, our Eminem of today... he's fucking Eminem."

It appears Drake could also have a song with Quavo coming soon. In October, a snippet of a song featuring the two rappers surfaced online.
