Drake and Kanye West have been dropping hints about a joint project, one that has the potential to be a full length collaboration between 2 of the best known rappers anywhere around the globe. Both have been involved in individual collaborations with other artists but now it appears that the rap duo may be teaming up together. In 2011 West teamed with Jay Z for Watch The Throne, and in 2015 Drizzy partnered with Future on What A Time To Be Alive. West and the Toronto rapper have also paired up on tracks in the past, such as Pop Style and Forever by Drake and Blessings by Big Sean just to name some.
During OVO Fest in August, the signature music festival held by Drake’s OVO Sound, Kanye first started dropping hints. West questioned the crowd, asking fans “I got one question for you… Is y’all ready for this album? I’m not talking about Pablo. I wasn’t talking about Views. I wanna ask y’all right now, y’all ready for this album?” Drizzy added clarification by telling the crowd “What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album? That’s what he was asking.”
Next billboards that paired the OVO Sound logo and the G.O.O.D. Music logo together started to show up, with the billboards containing random phrases around the Calabasas neighborhood where both rappers have residences. Hopefully fans will get to hear some sneak previews of what West and Drake are working on in the near future. In the meantime Drizzy and Taylor Swift have been very chummy, and some have been concerned that this could be a deal breaker for West or that it means Rihanna is no longer the love of Drake’s life, but both of these worries seem blown out of proportion.
