That Grape Juice asked readers yesterday to weigh the impact of Kanye West and Jay-Z‘s joint effort ‘Watch the Throne’. Now, reports have surfaced indicating two of hip hop’s other heavyweights have already put those wheels in motion – Lil’ Wayne and Drake. Revealed by Cash Money founder/rapper Birdman to our friends at XXL, the Young Money duo is preparing a joint release after their respective ‘Tha Carter IV’ (August 29th) and ‘Take Care’ (October 24) albums.
“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. 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.”
No title or tentative release date has been confirmed.
