Drake Recording with Soulja Boy
Published May 05, 2011Drake clearly has a penchant for high-profile collaborations. The Canadian hip-hop star has already teamed up with the likes of Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Florence Welch (though he got turned down by Sade). Now, we've received word that the rapper is gearing up for another collaboration, this time with Soulja Boy.
"Me and Drake got something coming -- crazy," Soulja Boy revealed to Rap-Up, "Drake called me and was like, 'Man, I like the Juice mixtape. I like the 'Zan with That Lean' too.' He named four songs off the mixtape that he really liked."
The pair's collaboration may appear on Drake's upcoming LP, Take Care. Soulja Boy explained, "He said he's coming to Atlanta and goin' kick it with me. We gonna go in the studio for a whole week. He's working on his new album too, so you already know what time it is."
This isn't the first time that Drake and Soulja Boy have performed together. The two appeared on stage together last year during an L.A. concert. See video footage below.
There's no word on when Take Care will be released, but rumours suggest that it will be produced in part by Jamie Smith of the XX, Noah "40" Shebib, Boi-1da and 9th Wonder.
