Listeners can expect the album's bluntly titled third single "I Love Dem Strippers" which will feature Nicki Minaj to be released early next month.
The genius that professed his coupe was the color of mayonnaise and hipped listeners to the art being drunk and high at the same time while sipping on the champagne on airplane is slated to release his debut album, Based On A T.R.U. Story August 14 via Def Jam.
