When it comes to Lil Wayne's joint projects with other artists (I Can't Feel My Face with Juelz Santana and T-Wayne with T-Pain to name a couple), it seems as if they always end up as myths. Birdman recently sat down with XXL to say that the Weezy-Drake album that was previously announced is no myth. “Wayne and I recently talked about [the Weezy/Drake collabo album]. That’s definitely going to get done.”
When comparing the Wayne-Drake album to Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne, the hip hop mogul said, “It’s older versus younger. 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 elaborated. “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.”
Weezy's Tha Carter IV drops August 29 and will be followed by Drizzy's Take Care on October 24.
