Lil Wayne & Drake Collaboration Album Could Arrive By End Of Year
Written by: Trill Nadia
Just as Lil Wayne nears the final developmental stages of Tha Carter IV, it is announced that the he and Young Money star Drake will release a collaboration that may be available by the end of 2011.
“That right there, that’s always been in the making,” Lil Wayne told MTV News’ Sway Calloway. “We’ve always been in the studio or we’ve always been having conversations about let’s do something together. Let’s do an album together.”
The album would likely be available sooner than the years end, however, Wayne has prioritized his projects.
“I’ve had ideas to do an album with T-Pain. We’ve got the T-Wayne situation going, so Drake’s a very respectable dude. He’s like, ‘I don’t want to disrespect none of those situations, so I’m just going to wait ’til you have a real good moment to focus on you and I doing an album,’” he explained. “And then you know my obligations to the Like Father, Like Son albums with Stunna. It’s like no disrespect to those. I don’t want to clash with nothing.”
Despite the high demand by artists to catch him on a verse, while he is in the process of recording “Tha Carter IV,” and attempts to make progress on the Drake collaboration, Lil Wayne feels confident if the two work diligently, an end-of-year release is not out of the question.
“I want it to be a year when [we] actually have a moment and we can do it. It’s coming up. Probably the end of the year if we work hard at it,” he said.
Wayne also revealed several tracks intended for his 2010 release “I Am Not A Human Being,” may end up on “Tha Carter IV.”
. “I kept like, if any, about three or four songs. Everything else is brand new,” he shared. “It’s soon. Once you start shooting the video, that means it’s ready.”
