Lil Wayne & Drake to release Collaborative Album
After Jay-Z and Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake seem also to fortify their status in the industry as both rappers are joining forces for a collaborative album as well. According to Cash Money’s Birdman, Weezy and Drizzy will dedicate their talents to the joint LP after Tha Carter IV and Take Care drop. He further implies that this collaboration is the younger version of what Jay and ‘Ye released. As told to XXL:
“Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album]. That’s definitely going to get done. It’s older versus younger. I listened to a few songs [off Watch The Throne] and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.
However, there is respect where respect is due.
“But what they’re doing is great. I think it’s great for the game, great for the business, great for retail as a whole. I just think when Wayne and Drake get together is going to be something real special also because we more youthful.”
