The rumor of a Kanye West and Drake collaborative album has been around for awhile - in the terms of music news - but now the project has been confirmed. In an interview with Vogue about his Yezzy Season 4 fashion line, Kanye opened up about the joint project, "We're just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio. We're working on an album, so there's some exciting things coming up soon."
Rumors first started to bubble up when Kanye appeared at Drake's OVO Fest in Toronto and announced the forthcoming record, asking the crowd, "Toronto, I got one question for you ... Is you all ready for this album?" Then revealing, "I'm not talking about Pablo. I'm not talking about VIEWS. I want to ask y'all, y'all ready for this album?" But things didn't start to boil over until a billboard reading, "Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi", with both artists' labels appearing on the sign, appeared in Los Angeles.
Kanye did not announce a release date or a title for the project, but it's safe to say - safe as it can be when it comes from Kanye's mouth - that the two are and have been working together.
In other Drake news. "A man has been arrested in connection with the theft of a reported $3 million worth of jewelry taken from Drake's tour bus. The robbery took place on Tuesday while Drake was performing at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ," reports Rolling Stone.
