Drake Mixtape With Rick Ross in the Works

Drizzy’s joint album with Lil Wayne now on hold.

Published November 7, 2011

Drake still hasn't celebrated the official release of his much-anticipated new album, Take Care, but the 25-year-old rapper is already plotting his next release. Speaking to XXLmag.com, Drizzy said his next project is likely to be a joint mixtape with none other than his friend and frequent collaborator, Rick Ross.

Drake said he's already put in work on the project, tentatively titled Y.O.L.O., but the Teflon Don has been temporarily out of commission due to his recent health scare.

“I have been working on a mixtape with Ross,” he said. “A mixtape called Y.O.L.O. [meaning] ‘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.”

In late October, Ross was rushed to the hospital after suffering two seizures while on a plane traveling to Memphis. He has since recovered and said that his condition was caused by exhaustion.

Previously, there had been talk of a collaboration album between Drake and his Young Money boss, Lil Wayne, but according to XXL, that project has been shelved indefinitely.

The Bawse and Drizzy traded rhymes most recently on the Just Blaze-produced song, "Lord Knows," from Drake's Take Care, due November 15.
