The tape has been previously referenced by its artists this year. In January, Gucci Mane tweeted "#GlacierBoyz coming February," perhaps on a very special date. "[W]e gone do it big next month on my birthday February 12th brrr!!! #GlacierBoyz." Quavo announced in a since-deleted February tweet that he was recording the project, as well as the full lineup of Lil Yachty, Gucci, and Migos.
Yachty is also at work on Lil Boat 2, a follow-up to his breakout mixtape. Migos just released their new album Culture II, and you can read The FADER's essay on it here. Gucci Mane dropped El Gato: The Human Glacier in December.
