After all the hype and success of Jay-Z and Kanye’s big collaborative effort, Watch the Throne, Cash Money’s Baby takes matters into his own hands by confirming that Lil’ Wayne and Drake will put out a collaborative album of their own, boasting that after their solo projects, The Carter IV (hitting stores August 29th) and Take Care (dropping October 24th) are released, the Young Money millionaires get to work on their own merger.
“Wayne and I recently talked about the Weezy/Drake collabo album,” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.”
“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.”
On their way out? Baby also added:
“But what they’re doing is great. 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.”
A Lil’ Wayne and Drake album could be cool, considering that the two have had great chemistry in the past. However, it’d be interesting to hear their take on it, especially given the content on Watch the Throne. The confirmation from the Cash Money CEO seemed a bit like taking shots at Kanye and Jay.
TEAIRRA MARI SIGNS NEW DEAL
Some have dubbed her the queen of the mixtape, or the queen of WorldStarHipHop, but Teairra Mari seems to still be making moves, regardless of the fact that her album has been green lit and halted several times. On the set of her new video, “That’s All Me,” the former Roc-A-Fella signee announces exclusively to Rap-Up.com that she’s now officially signed to Rico Love’s Division1 label.
Before, Mari inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records and only released an EP entitled Sincerely Yours, with no solid release date for her sophomore album, which has gone through a couple of title changes and had countless single attempts. Hopefully, this new merger between hitmaker Rico Love and Teairra will get the ball rolling on her often delayed project.
