The success that Drake's "If You're Reading This It's Too Late," had shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

Drake is the man who released a free mixtape, then put it up for sale and still made money off of it. Given the platinum success of "IYRTITL," "Views From The 6" has to be legendary.

After the announcement that Drake went "platinum off the tape," he also said that "Views From The 6" is up next. There hasn't been an official release date for the project but with 2015 moving into it's fall months there is a good chance that it could be coming soon.

Drake is one of "October's Very Own" so it wouldn't be surprising if he decided to give "Views From The 6" an October or even fall release.

At this moment that's just wishful thinking but whenever he does decide to release it, it has to be legendary.

When Drake released "If You're reading This It's Too Late," he happened to land 14 tracks on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat that only the Beatles managed to do.

His songs are still being played on Hip-Hop radio stations and spun in nightclubs nationwide.

Drake opened up the project by proclaiming he's a "Legend" and continued his winning streak with a his proactive approach to the Meek Mill beef, especially his "Back To Back" track which was seen as the finishing move.

So, how can he possibly top all of the incredible feats this year? Well, if Drake releases "Views From The 6" and it manages to go platinum or score 14 or more tracks on the Billboard Hot 100, artist wise, he might be the biggest winner of the year. Despite Kendrick Lamar's amazing "To Pimp A Butterfly" and Taylor Swift's mega successful "1989," Drake still manages to hold the top spot and he's not even done yet.

If Drake really wants to solidify his legendary status further, then "Views From The 6" will have to be something of epic proportions.
