Drake Reveals Plans For Album With Lil Wayne

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Jay-Z and Kanye West already have two potential challengers to their upcoming Watch the Throne. In an interview with U.K. radio personality Tim Westwood, Drake announced that he and Lil Wayne are working on a joint album of their own, and he took a couple of jabs at Hova and Yeezy’s project in the process.

"I’ll be on [Tha Carter IV],
though … We’ve done a great song … and then we’re going to do
another one, and another one," the Young Money MC said. "We still got to
do that album. I heard some other guys are coming out with an album,
too. There’s two other rappers that are coming out with an album
together. … I don’t know where they got that idea but …"

Westwood
probably knew Drake was referring to Jay-Z and West but played into the
coy act, saying, "I’m very slow; can you just break it down a bit
simpler for me please?"

Then Drake continued, "I just caught wind
of it through the grapevine, that there’s some other album coming out
with two guys rapping on it too."

"Oh, those two … you mean the older guys," Westwood said.

"Oh, I didn’t say that," Drake replied. "They look young to me … in their movements."

West and Drake haven’t been as close as they seemed back in 2009, when Yeezy directed the up-and-comer’s video for "Best I Ever Had." The Toronto rapper recently was left off of the final version of West’s "All of the Lights," but he told Shade 45 radio that he was OK with it.

Drake’s sophomore album, Take Care, is due later this year.

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Drizzy Drake is working on some songs with Justin Timberlake.
“One thing that’s in the works, this is exclusive, this is a moment… One thing that I haven’t mentioned to anybody yet, but will, right now. I‘ve always wanted to work with him and it’s in the works right now. Me and Justin Timberlake will probably have a song soon. I’m really excited about that, cause I’ve wanted to work with Justin for a long time. And we’ve recently talked about it and I think we’re going to make it happen.”

Drake Speaks On Rihanna’s Album, Song They Recorded

Rihanna and Drake

Rihanna and Drake

Rihanna’s fans are not the only ones rooting for her. One of her most famous supporters, hip-hop star Drake, has heard his peer’s new music and is sharing his excitement over her fresh start exclusively with Rap-Up.com.

“Rihanna has a great album,” the 23-year-old rapper said after hearing the pop singer’s fourth effort Rated R. “She’s got great records that she’s using, she’s got great records that she’s not even using that she has for a later date. I’m excited for her. She deserves everything that she gets.”

Although he has nothing but positive things to say, Drizzy was surprised by the selection of “Russian Roulette” as the album’s first single. “It’s a cool little record. I don’t know if personally that’s the route I would’ve gone for a single choice,” he told Rap-Up.com. “I can only say that because I’ve been around and heard the music that she’s coming with other than that record.”

But he doesn’t fault her for the decision. “We all make personal choices. It’s like the same way I shot a certain type of video for ‘Best I Ever Had.’ Maybe that’s where she’s at emotionally right now,” he offered. “I think if I heard it in the mix with the other ones, I would probably find more appreciation for it as opposed to it being the only thing that people are hearing from her right now after so long.”

While the Stargate production he recorded with Rihanna didn’t make the final cut, he hopes it will eventually find a home. “We did do some great work together and hopefully it’ll find it’s place on some project one day. The record we have is great. It’s a special record, so for it not to make it, I know something had to click. It’s all good. I think the project’s gonna be great no matter what.”

According to Drake, his fashionable friend is ready to start anew after dealing with the intense media scrutiny of the past nine months. “There’s been so much media attention swirling around her, that in order for her to get back to the music, she couldn’t have any ties to any of the stuff that’s been going on. I think she just wants to start fresh.”
