In a recent interview with MTV’s Sway, Lil Wayne discussed his joint album with Drizzy Drake stating that it’s “coming up.” Hopefully it’ll come out before the end of the year but let’s see how that plays with the release of Drake‘s sophomore album, Take Care. I know the album will be a hit. What do you think? Leave a comment below!
This is a family network, so we can’t print what Lil Wayne wants to do to every girl in the world (you can pick up the Young Money compilation to find out), but Weezy’s protégé Drizzy Drake has a cleaner desire when it comes to the women attending the 2010 Video Music Awards.
The Toronto MC wants to hug a number of the celebrity starlets in attendance. It is, after all, Drake’s first VMA experience. He said he would start with Angelina Jolie and move onto Alicia Keys, though the recently christened Mrs. Swizz Beatz would only get a congratulatory squeeze, Drake said.
“I get to meet everybody,” he said of his plans for the Sunday night’s big festivities. “There’s a couple of women I’d like to hug. I’d like to hug Angelina Jolie. I wanna hug Alicia. I’m happy for her. I wanna tell them in person: I’m still a fan.”
With the Thank Me Later rapper’s rapid rise, it’s easy to forget before this year his VMA experience consisted of catching the show from his couch rather than in the house. But after scoring a number of nominations, including Best Hip-Hop Video, the Toronto lyricist has an invite not only to attend the Chelsea Handler-hosted event, but also perform.
To hear him tell it, he’ll be enjoying the blowout on Sunday night just as much as anybody else.
“I’m just excited to see all the faces I never met,” Drake said. “I wanna shake some hands. I been working so hard, I hardly ever get to go to any parties in L.A. or anything. This is it. This is my time.”
