Kanye West Announces Joint Album With Drake
At day two of OVO Fest in Toronto, Drake brought out Kanye West, days after Yeezy hit the stage for the Summer Sixteen tour in Chicago. But tonight, ‘Ye had a treat for the audience.
As the DJ teased “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” Kanye asked the crowd, “Toronto I got one question for you. Is y’all ready for this album? I’m not talking about Pablo. I wasn’t talking about Views. I wanna ask y’all right now, are y’all ready for this album?”
Then he pointed at Drake, who re-entered the stage behind him. It was, in essence, Kanye announcing that he and Drizzy have an album together, and it’s on the way.
This isn’t the first time Kanye has talked about doing an album with Six God. Before The Life of Pablo, when Kanye was doing performances of “Wolves,” he said that song was inspired by conversations he’d had with Drake about doing a joint album together.
“The ‘Wolves’ song came from a conversation that me and Drake had, when was gunna do an album together, and the album was called Wolves,” he said on the Breakfast Club in 2015.
Back when Drake did the Zane Lowe interview on Beats 1 for Views, he also said he and Kanye were supposed to drop a mixtape together.
