Lil Wayne & Drake To Release Collaborative Album, Says Birdman
Weezy and Drizzy will supposedly release a joint LP following their respective solo albums.
Jay-Z and Kanye West aren’t the only ones teaming up for a collaborative full-length album. According to Birdman, Lil Wayne and Drake are joining forces to release a joint LP, which will most likely be released after Weezy drops Tha Carter IV and Drizzy delivers Take Care.
“Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album],” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.”
The Cash Money mogul went so far as to compare the album to Watch the Throne, claiming that the collaboration is the younger version of what Jay and ‘Ye released.
“It’s older versus younger,” Baby said. “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.
“But what they’re doing is great,” he continued. “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.”
