Drake and Rick Ross to Collaborate on ‘Y.O.L.O.’ Mixtape
Hip-hop heavyweights Drake and Rick Ross are planning to team up for a mixtape called ‘Y.O.L.O.,’ which is an acronym for ‘You Only Live Once.’ Drizzy used lingo on the hook of his hyphy-inspired track ‘The Motto‘ (featuring Lil Wayne), which is a bonus track on his ‘Take Care’ album.
According to XXL, Drake has put his collaborative album with Weezy on hold and instead is prepping a joint mixtape with Rozay. “I have been working on a mixtape with Ross,” he said. “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.”
The ‘Headlines’ rapper couldn’t lock-in a release date for the mixtape, but he plans to drop it without any fanfare behind it. In the meantime, you can hear Drizzy and Rozay trade bars on the Just Blaze-produced banger ‘Lord Knows,’ which recently leaked online. The powerhouse duo have appeared on a few songs together including ‘Aston Martin Music’ and this year’s summer anthem ‘I’m On One.’
Now that Ross is back on his feet and in better health, we can expect him to resume his promotional grind for his upcoming LP ‘God Forgives, I Don’t,’ which arrives in stores on Dec. 13.
