Kanye West has some ‘G.O.O.D.’ news: he and Drake are about to change the hip-hop game – forever! While surprising the crowd at OVO Fest, Yeezy said he and Drizzy are going to drop the greatest joint album since ‘Watch The Throne!’ Click to watch.
“Toronto. I got one question for you,” Kanye West, 39, said while making an unexpected appearance at Drake’s, 29, OVO Fest on Aug. 1. “Is you all ready for this album?” While some excited fans were ready to hear Ye possibly plat The Life Of Pablo in its entirety, that’s not what the “Famous” rapper meant. “I’m not talking about Pablo. I’m not talking about VIEWS. I want to ask y’all – y’all ready for this album?
Enter the Drizzy, as Drake then joined Ye on stage. “What my brother was asking before was – are you ready if WE make an album?” Drake asked. Yeezy and Drizzy, together on an album? The crowd, needless to say, lost their minds. Fan been waiting for new music between Drake and Ye ever since Kanye promised the two had “new sh*t that’s gonna drop soon,” following Drizzy’s appearance on Ye’s tracks “30 Hours” and “Father Stretch My Hands.”
The question is – will this joint album between Drake and Kanye be Watch The Throne 2? It’s been five years since Ye and Jay Z, 46, dropped one of the biggest collab albums in hip-hop history. Ye and Jay even appeared on the first version of “Pop Style,” a single from Drake’s VIEWS. However, the album version replaces their appearance with another Drake verse, per Hip Hop DX.
Jay may not feel bad about being replaced, especially since Kanye’s about to make the “Blueprint” rapper a lot of money. Jay is looking to sell his music streaming service Tidal to Apple. Kanye, ever the impatient one, couldn’t wait for Apple to cut Jay a check. Claiming the Tidal/Apple feud is ruining “the music game,” Kanye tweeted that Apple CEO Tim Cook, 55, just needs to “let the kids have the music” and pay up. Well, if Jay doesn’t have to worry about running a streaming music service anymore, he might have free time to spit a few verses on Drake and Yeezy’s album.
Are you excited for the Drake-Kanye collab, HollywoodLifers? What do you think they should call the album? VIEWS From The Throne?
