Fans may be disappointed to hear that Drake and Lil Wayne have decided to scrap their highly anticipated collaboration album. Their reason for scraping the deal, as Drake explained to XXL, was because they felt fans would compare it to Watch the Throne, and not take it for it’s own artistic merit.
“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.'”
Smart move, because that “Watch The Throne” album turned out to be something quite special; and if they were to put out something this close to that album’s release and it didn’t deliver, they would never hear the end of it.
Do you think Drake & Lil Wayne should drop the album anyway?
