With Jay-Z and Kanye West's new "Watch The Throne" collaboration album doing so well, Cash Money's CEO Birdman has now confirmed an upcoming Lil Wayne slash Drake collab project. Despite not giving a release date, Birdman says that the two Young Money artists will team up, after they both release their upcoming solo albums.
“Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album],” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.” (XXL)
Despite teaming up for a collaboration album, Birdman says that Lil Wayne and Drake will bring a different sound to fans, compared to Jay-Z and Kanye.
“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.” (XXL)
Lil Wayne's upcoming solo album, "Tha Carter IV," is currently set to drop on August 29th while Drake's sophomore project, "Take Care," will be in stores on October 24th.
