Rumors swirled earlier this week that Future would release a third album relatively soon, thanks to a press release from the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where Future performed on Thursday, Mar. 2. However, Future’s manager Anthony Saleh tweeted “FALSE” just moments after outlets began reporting about the third album.
The release reportedly read, “One of the biggest rappers in music, FUTURE is on the show today! He’ll be performing a song from his upcoming CD, “HNDRXX.” He has the #1 album in the country this week with “Future,” and is attempting to have three #1 albums in a row in three weeks – which will make him the first in history to do that! He’s bringing it all to Ellen!”
