Drake may have just teased the release date for his upcoming album, For All The Dogs, with a cryptic post on Instagram. On his Story, Drake shared a picture of the back of his head and astute fans have noticed that the numbers 0, 9, 2, and 2 are beaded into his hair going downwards. This could represent the date September 22nd, which, being a Friday, would make sense as a release date for new music.

Drake has been hyping up an announcement of the release date for For All The Dogs for months at this point. While in New York, earlier this summer, he described it as being just "weeks away." Then in August, Amazon Music appeared to leak August 25th as a release date, but that day came and went with no new music. Most recently, during a concert at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Friday, the Toronto rapper promised to supply fans with more details shortly.
