Called “Enough Said,” the track might be the first release from a posthumous Aaliyah album, which Drake is reportedly executive producing. However, it turns out not everyone is on board with that idea. Longtime Aaliyah collaborator Timbaland recently told Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club that “it would not be right” for Drake to go forward with the record on his own. READ MORE

It’s really an extension from my younger days. [Ivy League Club] was my code for the marijuana trade. I was looked at as the weed man earlier in my teens. It was a clever way of me saying that without saying that. I feel like I grew up around a lot of intelligent young men and I thought me and my friends were pretty intelligent to be from where we’re from. Some of us got caught up but a lot of us didn’t. We’re blessed. I feel like that was the most resemblance of myself and my upbringing.
