Lil Wayne, Drake to collaborate on new CD

Concrete Loop

After all the hype and success of Jay-Z and Kanye West's big collaborative effort, "Watch the Throne," Cash Money's Baby takes matters into his own hands by confirming that Lil Wayne and Drake will put out a collaborative album of their own.

The Young Money millionaires say that after their respective solo projects -- "The Carter IV" (hitting stores Aug. 29) and "Take Care" (dropping Oct. 24) -- are released, they'll get to work on their own merger.

"Wayne and I recently talked about the Weezy/Drake collabo album," Baby told "That's definitely going to get done."

"It's older versus younger," Baby said. "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. 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."

Baby also added, "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, is going to be something real special also because we more youthful."

A Lil Wayne and Drake album could be cool, considering that the two have had great chemistry in the past. However, it'd be interesting to hear their take on it, especially given the content on "Watch the Throne." The confirmation from the Cash Money CEO seemed a bit like taking shots at Kanye and Jay.
