First off, congrats to Snapchat king DJ Khaled for scoring a radio show on Apple Music's Beats 1, where folks like Run the Jewels, Pharrell, Drake and Elton John also spin tunes to the international masses. We the Best Radio will air Fridays at 8PM EST, starting this week.
Second off, congrats to everyone else, because you're all getting a new Future album called Tape on Friday. Here's the announcement from Futch and Khaled:

Future laid low from September to January, when he dropped the What a Time to Be Alive follow-up Purple Reign, a 13-track mixtape with all the usual producer suspects in the house—Metro Boomin, DJ Spinz, Southside, Esco. Now, with less than a month of breathing room, we're getting Tape. It'll be Future's eighth full-length project, counting mixtapes and albums, in less than two years.
