Fashawn's new album has been a long time coming. Finally the rapper was able to lock in a release date for the sophomore effort, after inking a deal with the Nas-helmed record label Mass Appeal. The album is due out on February 24th, and with the release date around the corner, he's letting us hear it a few days early.

The Ecology is streaming now via Audiomack. Yesterday you might have seen a leak from Fashawn on the homepage, the Nas and Aloe Blacc-featured "Something to Believe In." In addition to those features, Fashawn taps Dom Kennedy, Busta Rhymes, BJ The Chicago Kid and more. Production is predominantly handled by Fashawn's go-to, Exile.
