Drake And Lil Wayne Says No To Collab Album Because Of ‘Watch The Throne’

There were rumors earlier this year about Drake and Lil Wayne doing an album together but now Drake confirms they will no longer be doing the LP.  Even though the two said they had their album in works even before Jay and Kanye did ‘Watch The Throne’, they now are saying no to the collaboration due to Jay’s and Kanye’s recent project. Read inside to hear Drake’s reasoning behind scraping the joint album.

Drake has said that they have decided to cancel  album with Lil Wayne forever and would instead pursue a collab mixtape with friend and fellow Hip Hop artist Rick Ross. Drake feels like him and Lil Wayne do not want to shadow Jay and Kanye’s project and if they did come out with an album it would be compared too much to ‘Watch The Throne’.

“Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album,” he told XXL. “We just agreed that it would be looked upon as…it would be sort of this competition [with Watch the Throne]. I feel like it would get caught in this whirlwind of hype. [Wayne] agreed. We just said, ‘If we do it, we’ll do it down the line. But right now is not the time.’”

Drake says there is no official release date for his mixtape with Rick Ross but fans can expect it soon.

“To be honest, it’s something I just really wanted to pop up out of nowhere. I’m not gonna release no single or anything. It’s something I want to do because I enjoy working with Ross,” he said.

Will you be picking up the Drake/Rick Ross mixtape when it hits the streets?

  3. No, I will not be copping a Drake/Ross album. I don’t like Ross. It makes sense the reason why a Drake/Wayne album didn’t come out. But if they do that later down the line, a lot of people myself included will be waiting for that hotness.

  4. We don’t really need a callabo album from them. They have enough songs together already and I’m sure there will be plenty more.

  5. Smart move, Aubrey Drake and Mr. Carter. We don’t need people thinkin’ this some Biggie-Tupac shenanigans goins ons.
