Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Aaliyah’s Family In Support Of Drake Working On Her Album Or Not?

There are so many rumors going around regarding this new Aaliyah posthumous album that my head is starting to spin. I sure do hope the publicity leads to album sales for the estate of Aaliyah.  As we all have heard, Drake and 40 are “commanding” the project and Timbaland is rumored to have already worked on two songs.

Drake had initially said that he had the support of Aaliyah’s family, but Aaliyah’s brother Rashad posted that the family was not in support of the album – You can read that story here.

Shortly after, Aaliyah’s record label, Blackground, which is run by her uncle Barry Hankerson, released a statement to Miss Info, saying that the family IS in support of the album and they were the one who leaked it, not Drake as previously reported. Shesh! What is really going on here?

Well now in an interview with Much Music, Drake has reinforced that the family is in support of the album. Check out what he said below:

“People should be really excited. People thought it was my single; it’s not my single. It’s all off of an Aaliyah project that me and 40 are commanding and 40’s just doing some incredible, some incredible music right now.”

“To get 13, 14 new Aaliyah songs, everybody should be excited. It’s not about me. It’s not about 40. It’s about her and her fans and us just getting the opportunity to give you something that we feel is great. And the people around her, everybody from her family to her old management and label, were like, ‘If there’s anyone out that can do it right now, it’s [you] and 40.’ And that was an honor and we’re going to pull in some classic people, anybody who used to work with Aaliyah that was essential in her career we definitely hope to have them involved. So it’s great. You get a new Aaliyah album this year on top of everything.”

Drake sounds pretty sure about her family being “excited” about the project and he seems to be going about it the right way by including Timbaland and the people who use to work with Aaliyah.  Let’s see if Rashad releases another statement or not. Do you believe that Aaliyah’s family is really in support of the project?

The full Aaliyah album will be out later this year.

      • Yes PIERRE Aaliyah’s voice is a much needed breath of fresh air to this game. And trust me brother – you are the only one hangin out here

      • Pierre Elliott

        Dog i thought you were sayin “fresh air” on the fact of drake.
        Naw yah yah all day, just minus the canadian.

      • I’m insulted you take me for a man to call Drake “fresh air”. He just said the same exact thing he said the LAST SONG on this one. Jigaboo please

  • TupacLives

    if the first song that came out is any indication it ain’t lookin good.. that production was beyond horrible… drum sounds sound like they came from my first casio or some ish.. sloppy ass production.

  • Smplyred

    This fool is sayin’ it’s all her but that first track was so not about her and hardly had that Aaliyah sound. It was Drake putting Aaliyah in the background so that he can rap about that same BS he’s always rapping about….NEXT!!!

  • The fact that Drake is behind the production will be the reason for her fans to look the other way……If he wants to hear himself and Aaliyah on a track fine do it, one song cool…But an entire album? Drake is trying his best to use his voice to sing and he seems to be trying to use his minor love for Aaliyah to do so…..Point is her fans were not begging for an Aaliyah record, so why continue to push this project? Drake is not doing this for Aaliyah or her fans, he is doing this for himself. It’s that cocky ass young money ego that will tarnish Aaliyah’s legacy. #epicfail

    • Pierre Elliott

      PREACH IT BROTHER!!!!!!!!! BLACK PEOPLE ACT LIKE WHITE PEOPLE NOW:
      ALL FOR THE MONEY. AND NOTHING ABOUT CHARACTER……

      ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW………………I NEVER KNEW OR THOUGHT BLACK PEOPLE WOULD ACT LIKE THIS WHEN I GOT OLDER….

    • HIP HOP SAVIOURS

      YES HE’S DOING IT FOR HIMSELF. THE GAY NI66A HAVE A TAT OF HER ON HIS BACK. HE WORSHIP HER IN A SCARY WAY. HE’S DOING THIS TO SAY I’M THE ONE THAT DID IT NOT YALL. THEN ON TOP OF THAT HE’S GOING TO DISS CHRIS BROWN ON THE SONG HE HAS WITH HER. SHE WASN’T ABOUT THAT, SHE WAS POSITIVE. I USE TO BE ONE OF THE ONES THAT DID SECURITY ON HER IN DETROIT WHEN HER AND HER FAMILY WAS GETTING DEATH THREATS SO I KNOW.

  • jsj23

    I said this before and will continue to remind you all. DRAKE and 40 are JEWS, nothing more, nothing less! It is all about money. Those crappy synagouge beats you savor, are used for prayers & meditation (How to fool people for money) Drake has no Black tendancies in him! It pisses me off to hear him use the N-word like he is down with me! F*ck him and 40. I hope Cash Money milks him for EVERYTHING! F*ck him!

    The remix of this album will be drakeless. it will also have new album title called:” better off alone”
    if he got permission, then so be it. well done. but if it is still in limbo on if he got permission on not, that’s above my pay grade, son. I have read this article and still don’t know what is happening. We can just do what we have been doing, listen to her albums, think of old times and chill.
