After much teasing regarding his comeback album, LL Cool J‘s decided against releasing the project. He came to the conclusion Wednesday following a slew tweets capturing his stream of consciousness.

“I’m really trying to figure this album out. SMH,” he tweeted in the wee hours of the morning, per TMZ. Minutes later, he said that he’s “Just not feeling like this album is worthy being released.” He then revealed that he’s “not dropping it.”

LL’s announcement comes just weeks after he expressed his desire for fans to hear the album when it drops.

“I’m competing with myself on this new album. Wait til you hear this MF,” he tweeted. “This year B. It’s coming.” He later revealed that Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest was executive producing the project, which was supposed to be his first new album in a decade.
