Lil Wayne and Drake are both preparing to release new albums this year. Cash Money CEO Birdman confirmed to XXL mag that Weezy and Drizzy has a collaboration album in the works. “Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album],” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.” Keep reading:
Birdman promises that Wayne and Drake will offer up a different sound from that of Jay and ‘Ye.
“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 added. “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.”
In the mean time, Weezy’s Tha Carter IV drops on August 29, followed by Drake’s sophomore LP, Take Care on October 24.
