Published Jun 08, 2010With Drake's highly anticipated Thank Me Later set to drop next Tuesday (June 15), the wait is almost over. Though many are excited about the album's arrival, we're a little disappointed. After all, now that it's actually coming out, we can't make any more jokes about constantly changing release dates and delays. Fortunately, Drake stepped in to announce a new project for us to look forward to indefinitely: a collaborative LP with the currently incarcerated Lil Wayne.
"I went up to Rikers, and me and Wayne agreed that there will be a Lil Wayne/ Drake album," he told MTV. "There's some things I'm excited for in my life - I'm excited to go perform certain places - but [this project] will probably be one of the most exciting things in my life, because we make music on a different level. It's just so fun, so comfortable. A whole album? To think about all the things we can do, especially if we're gonna do 15 songs. Me and him don't like to do 12, 13 [songs]. We want to do 15, 16. Yeah, Lil Wayne and Drake album."
Lil Wayne won't be released from prison until November, so it's doubtful that the album will come out this year. On the other hand, Weezy was able to shoot nine music videos in two days before his sentence started, so anything's possible.
