When Drake and Jay-Z collaborated on “Light Up,” the two traded matching rhymes about brushing off haters — Drizzy from the vantage point of an upstart MC and Hov as the veteran with a list of accomplishments longer than Lil Wayne’s hair.
Now that Drake has scored a #1 album and loads of endorsement deals, would he consider a sequel? Well, he told MTV News he would record another song with Jay-Z, but not that song in particular.
“I probably wouldn’t title it ‘Light Up 2,’ but there could definitely be potential for a record where me and Jay just spit about life,” Drake told MTV News. “I look forward to making that. I don’t think I’m ready to do it yet, though. If me and Jay do another record … I just want it to be a song. I don’t necessarily want it to be a life/time marker. I would love to do a song with Jay that hits radio. I’d love to do something that’s more musical, as opposed to all that rapping. And plus, I don’t feel like I’m in that veteran category. Like, now that I’m here six months later, after we did that song. Things happen pretty quick over here on this side, but I don’t necessarily want to reflect that in song.”
Maybe Drake can take Hov up on his offer soon for a verse. The Brooklyn icon told fans at Yankee Stadium last month that he owed Drake one after the Toronto star experienced a few technical snafus during the NYC Home and Home stop.
In the meantime, Drake is moving forward with his sophomore set. He recently recorded the second song for the collection, which again will feature production from Noah “40? Shebib.
“I did this song the other night; I’ve now completed the second song for my album,” he said. “So I only had one song before for the new album. Two nights ago, I did the second song. I’m loving it. I’m loving the sound. I’m excited again.”
