The Drake and Future mixtape's countdown clock seems to have been a dud. Some fans feel that Meek Mill had something to do with the fake release site.
In a previous Inquisitr article, it noted that the highly-anticipated music release was supposed to happen at 11 p.m., eastern-standard time.

This just in, Meek Mill trolls Drake/Future fans by permanently stopping the drop at 6 seconds

When my Drake x Future clocked stopped @ 6 seconds pic.twitter.com/tItNtcU8Xu — BudhaMan (@tonypaylow) September 19, 2015Clever, right? And it also had the current hashtag, #ViewsFromTheFuture. This caused people to think that Drake was making a double-drop — including Views from the 6. Nevertheless, as can be seen, the page rendered only hopes and dreams -- and a very weird scene from Drake and Meek Mill.
WOW THANKS @DRAKE pic.twitter.com/zigzOW2aLbAfterwards, via his Instagram, Meek Mill posted a photo of Jordan during a Championship win.Now, Twitter is exploding with Drake and Future buzz. The majority of tweets call Drake and Future trolls for not letting fans know the site was a fake. Yet, there is hope. At tonight's Drake and Future performance, there was verification that the Future and Drake mixtape is real -- even if the release date and countdown clock weren't authentic. According to Complex, Drizzy stated as follows.

"...while it seems unlikely that we're getting the project tonight, Drake reportedly confirmed its existence during a performance in Atlanta this evening."
@the_blueprint apparently drake was on stage tonight and confirmed the tape and that its dropping sunday... — the Gingerbeard Man. (@TrelloDeLaGetto) September 19, 2015
Drake said something "big" is coming Sunday. Don't know what that means 😯But Drake did mention a mixtape, so to speak, via his Instagram. Hopefully, the big Sunday release will be Put It All In A Plastic Bag.

"took a break from Views now it's back to that, and me and @1future got a tape before that.... Sunday will be madness." - @Drake #FBGOVOFrom what Drake said at the concert, he definitely intends to drop the collaboration with Future before his Views from the 6 release. Unfortunately, the confirmation didn't come before everyone raised their hopes for Friday night. Surely, some people even stayed home awaiting the mixtape. Nevertheless, as mentions Design & Trend, it's no longer a rumor.
