After previous unfulfilled album release dates, Maino is finally ready to serve up his sophomore LP. The Brooklyn rapper’s long-awaited album, The Day After Tomorrow, will hit shelves later this month on Feb. 28.
Featuring infectious singles such as the summer smash, “Let It Fly” (featuring Roscoe Dash) and the current record heating up radio, “This Could Be Us,” the album will serve as a joint release between Atlantic Records and eOne Music. To hold fans over after the many pushbacks, the Hustle Hard general released a string of mixtapes including last month’s Green Lantern and DJ Infamous-hosted I Am Who I Am (The Album Before The Album).
The forthcoming release will be Maino’s follow-up to his successful 2009 debut, If Tomorrow Comes, which spawned hits including “Hi Hater,” “Million Bucks”—which was recently featured in this year’s Super Bowl ad for the NFL’s fantasy league— and the platinum-plus selling chart-topper, “All The Above” (ft. T-Pain).
The new album not only includes his radio ready bangers (“Let It Fly,” “Cream”), but intensely introspective tracks (“Gangstas Aint Dead,” “Never Gon’ Stop”), signature hard street anthems (“Nino Brown,” “Heaven For a G, “Unstoppable”) and more. Fans can pre-order the new album here.
