After seeing these two tear it up at the BET Awards (above), we're pret-ty excited for this announcement!
Following the footsteps of Jay-Z and Kanye West, rappers Lil Wayne and Drake are teaming up for their OWN collaborative album.
Here's what Birdman had to say about the new project:
"Wayne and I recently talked about [a collaboration with Drake]. That's definitely going to get done."
"It's older versus younger. I listened to a few songs [off Watch the Throne], and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young, they young cats."
More from Birdman:
"You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So it's two different types of music all the way across the board."
"But what they're doing is great. I think it's great for the game, great for the business, great for retail as a whole. I just think when Wayne and Drake get together, [it's] going to be something real special also because we more youthful."
"[This] will probably be one of the most exciting things in my life, because we make music on a different level."
We'll def look forward to hearing more about this one! Maybe they should get Jay-Z and Kanye to collaborate on one of their tracks…
