Drake is the rapper that never sleeps.

"Real possible! What we discussed, definitely, what me and him discussed," Maine told MTV News last week when asked if Drake will be putting out another LP before next summer. Then when asked about the possibilities of Drake putting out an album by the time Christmas 2010 comes around, a grinning Maine replied, "Expect the unexpected."

"Drake's crazy," Maine continued. "He's doing a mixtape right now. He called me one night, like two in the morning. He has the intro done for the new album. We was discussing dates where he should come back -- that'll be soon. And this mixtape, he's gonna put that out quick. His formula is crazy. He works fast. I can't give the secret away to the formula. He's a musical genius. The way he and [producer] 40 put things together is crazy."

Me, being a member of Team Drake, I can't wait to hear what he's got in store for us next. In the meantime, look out for his R&B mixtape, "It's Never Enough," which seems to be coming this year as well.

In related news, Maine told MTV News last week that Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" is still schedule to drop on Nov. 5 -- the day Weezy is released from jail. His "I Am Not A Human Being" project will be released digitally on his birthday, Sept. 27.
