Drake + Rick Ross to release Y.O.L.O collab mixtape & joint LP with Lil Wayne scrapped | Music News

With his sophomore album, Take Care, due to hit stores next week (lets pretend the leak didn’t happen), Drake is already hard at work on his next project.

Speaking to XXL, Drake reveals that he’s been working on a mixtape with none other than Rick Ross. Entitled ‘Y.O.L.O,’ an acronym for You Only Live Once, he reveals that he’s been “stashing my little beats and verses” while Rozay gets better.

This may come as a surprise to those who were patiently waiting for the much-hyped Drake and Lil Wayne collaborative mixtape. That has apparently been put on the backburner for now, possibly for good.

On Friday (November 4) in New York, Drake revealed to XXL that the much talked about joint album with Lil Wayne is on the back burner, possibly for good, but he and Rick Ross have been exchanging ideas for a duet mixtape.

“I have been working on a mixtape with Ross,” Drake said. “A mixtape called Y.O.L.O. [That means] ‘You Only Live Once’. I’ve been working on that for the last couple of weeks. We haven’t really connected because he’s been going through this thing with his health. I’ve been stashing my little beats and verses.”

Drake says there is no release date for the tape as of yet and if it were up to him, the project will drop without a lot of pre-hype or warning; he wants to make it a surprise for the fans.
