Drake, Lil Wayne to Record Collaborative Album
Drake made a highly publicized trip to Rikers Island to visit his incarcerated mentor and Young Money CEO Lil Wayne recently. During the visit, Drake and Wayne reportedly made plans to release a collaboration album, upon Weezy's release.
"I went up to Rikers, and me and Wayne agreed that there will be a Lil Wayne/Drake album," the Canadian rapper/singer told DJ Envy on MTV. "There's some things I'm excited for in my life -- I'm excited to go perform certain places -- but [this project] will probably be one of the most exciting things in my life, because we make music on a different level. It's just so fun, so comfortable. A whole album? To think about all the things we can do, especially if we're gonna do 15 songs. Me and him don't like to do 12, 13 [songs]. We want to do 15, 16. Yeah, Lil Wayne and Drake album."
Drake, who owes much of his buzz to his early mixtape collaborations with Wayne, has a Weezy feature on his forthcoming debut, 'Thank Me Later,' which will be released on June 15.
