Drake & Lil Wayne Scrap Collab LP

blame it on Shake November 8, 2011

After announcing a joint mixtape with Rick Ross yesterday, Drake reveals to XXL the reasoning behind scrapping his collaborative album with Lil Wayne..

Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album. 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.’

Interesting. Drake also sat down with Stereogum and discussed sample-clearance issues with Take Care, his writing process for the album, proposing to Nicki Minaj and more. Check the full in-depth interview here.
