Drake and Kanye Announce a Joint Album, Update on other Projects
As we all know, OVO fest is this week in Toronto and is always filled with surprises and special guests. Last night was night two of the festival, and controversial rap genius Kanye West made an appearance. This wasn't just any regular appearance though. Sure, Kanye performed a couple of songs off his latest album Life of Pablo, but he also had this to say.
"Toronto I got one question for you...is you all ready for this album? I'm not talking about Pablo. I'm not talking about Views. I want to ask y'all, y'all ready for this album?"
Kanye stopped himself right there and left the audience puzzled. Of course Drake had to swoop in and clarify what Kanye was saying.
"What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album? That's what he was asking."
Holy shit. Two of the biggest names in the Hip-Hop/Rap game are going to join forces to make an insane album. I'd be lying if said I didn't have a chub right about now. Drake has already announced a new mixtape is on the way, but what the hell let's just throw in another collaboration project with one of the best rappers ever in Kanye West.
This new Drake/Kanye album has the potential to be just as good if not better than Watch the Throne. I understand that Watch the Throne is one of the best Hip-Hop albums of my generation, but Drake is on another level right now. Everything he touches is turning into a banger. I can't wait to see how this project plays out, and I bet everyone else is just as excited as I am.
UPDATE ON OTHER PROJECTS:
Summer sixteen just doesn't stop. There are THREE projects coming out on Friday, August 5th that everyone should keep their eyes and ears open for.
The first one is Travis Scott's, Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight. Travis Scott has also been working very hard on his sophomore album. I can only imagine what features he'll have on it, but if I had to guess I'd say it will be a plethora of talent and should be a very solid album.
The second one which was announce via Instagram, is 2 Chainz new mixtape called, Daniel Son; Necklace Don. Of course Chainz would have a ridiculous title like this on his tape. Oh, and of course he was texting Drake about it, so you know Drake will be making at least a couple appearances on it.
The final and most anticipated project is Frank Oceans, Boys Don't Cry album. After releasing the world wide sensation of Channel Orange, Frank Ocean went M.I.A. and we didn't hear about or from him in a long long time. After constantly teasing fans about the albums release date, his sophomore album will be released 4 years and and a week after his first album. This will released exclusively on Apple Music.
I'll happen to be losing my face at the Drake/Future concert Friday at MSG, but I'll be posting my reviews and reaction to these at some point this weekend.
