In less than one month’s time, Birdman has confirmed that Drake and Lil Wayne are working on a joint album while Drake then talked about the possibility of a joint album with Rick Ross. And today, we’re learning that all three of them might be coming together for a collaborative effort. That’s right: Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Drake rapping alongside one another for an entire album.
Now, this hasn’t been confirmed or anything like that, but Rozay and DJ Khaled hinted at the project’s possibility during an interview in Los Angeles. They were on the West Coast celebrating the release of Weezy’s chart-topping Tha Carter IV, got asked for an interview with Hip Hollywood, and might have spilled the beans on a potentially colossal event for hip-hop.
You can say whatever you want about the players involved, but you can’t front like you wouldn’t want to hear whatever they produce. Twelve to 14 tracks as good as “I’m On One“? Sign us up.
If this does indeed occur, here are some things that need to be kept to a minimum:
1 – The monolithic beats. Pick something different from Lil’ Lody, Lex Luger, Cardiak, etc…
2 – The “scrub” guest features. Please, keep the Young Money goobers off the album or, at least, put them on one track only.
3 – The features in general. Kanye and Jay-Z barely let anyone else on Watch The Throne, so y’all can do the same. A few guest singers for the hooks, sure, but no one else.
4 – The shit references. This is mostly directed at Weezy.
5 – The track listing. As I wrote earlier, put like 12 to 14 tracks on this and you’re golden, fellas.
OK, that’s enough. You can watch the interview with Ross and Khaled below.
