Lil' Wayne and Drake

Hip-Hop Rumors: Lil' Wayne Says Drake Is "Thoughtful" Enough For Aaliyah Project

While DMX thinks Drake is a “piece of sh*t” for putting together Aaliyah’s posthumous album without the help of her longtime producers, Missy and Timbaland, Lil’ Wayne thinks Drake’s “awesome” for tackling the project. But what else would Lil’ Wayne say? Drake is his artist!

In a recent interview with the AP, Drizzy’s boss tells the mag that Drake’s involvement in the album is a “good move.” According to Weezy, Drake is perfect for the project because he is so “thoughtful.” PAUSE!!!

“Everybody knows what Aaliyah did and done for music and culture, period, and it’s always good to do that, for not only for people like that, just for her fans – you know what I mean?” Lil’ Wayne said in a recent interview.

It looks like despite all of the controversy, Drake is still going to go forward with producing the album. At least he has one person in his corner.

    i for one don’t have a problem with him doing it. i mean i’d prefer if 40 had more control of it. i think his beats would suit her nicely. if anything i feel its just been so long… why is it even coming out at all? why wasn’t timberland and missy elliot in the studio making this post humorous album years ago? so i guess what i’m saying is they missed their shot. whatever.

    • J. Jordan

      posthumous……not post humorous….post humorous would mean “after-comedy”

        HaHaHa Aint it funny when simple n!ggas try to be smart

    • johnblacksad

      i’m seriously confused… you right about one point tho… i dunno the full situation… why didn’t Missy/Timberland took care of that years ago? How did Drake end up in charge of that? Somebody please really explain… does Baby Girl’s family have beef with Timbo & Missy? or did they just go straight to Drake since he’s a Rnb master? Did Drake go at them and bought the rights? how did this whole sh!t started and now it seems like Missy nor Timbo can not get a piece of that? Why wouldn’t Drake let them jump on a track or two? i really do not understand sh!t about the situation…

    man if drake does this aaliyah album its gonna be a disaster big tyme

    • it maybe a distaster as far aaliyahs original fan base … but the YMCMB fanbase wont see it that way … @ the end of the day drake crafts great albums that combines hip hop, rnb & techno pretty damn well …. not many other artist can cross genres like that and still come out with good music in all 3 of those genres …. cant totallly knock drake …. his only downfall with this project is not hitting up aaliyahs original team to get down on the project…….

      • YungKizz

        yo dont forget her brother he does even no anything about dis shit at all

    there is no problem with drake overseeing this project but he definitely needs to open it up for variety with multiple producers. regardless of if missy & timbo are included, this album will start off with a buzz high on the charts then quickly fizzle down and be forgotten if all the tracks sound the same. hopefully thoughtful is not just crew love..

    hip hop is dead so much destruction stimulating imitating music its like fossil fuels destroying the pollution I mean life is hard but everday we go through it but when it comes to our music its like not even cool to be black its all just ignorance and bufoonery rap/ i cant stand future 2 chainns gucci young jeezy n big shawn I rather hear a krunk album from lil john atleast his song made sense dont start no shyt wont be no shyt or your funeral will be at your own risk why who or what decieded to kill hip hop it eveN MADE MY PEN DROP


  • i still think drake shoulda ask Missy and timbaland but if it doesnt bother them than o well

  • skippy

    Allhiphop rumor section must be on the industry payrolll cuz the rumor section has been violating for the past 6 mouth. some shit don’t even make sense

  • Niggas be tough as hell commentin online about Wayne. See if u think he aint mobbin when he in ya face. Even if he aint on it like that no more, Slim will get u offed dumb fast.

    • Spyz District

      Wayne a fagot Period !!!!!!

  • tamir williams

    cash what are yall thinking about, this beautiful legand of a woman didnt even know dude. what makes you think she would even approve of a collabo with drake. just because cash money might have gotten the ok from her parents or whomever is allowing this does not mean its cool. c’mon yall

    • well today is all about being relevants … and folks in them building prob feel that timbo and missy aint relevant anymore … but drake is “relevant” so hes been knighted with the oppurtunity …. samething with Eminem with that Tupac album …. lol #badcomparison lol

  • like you said drake is lil waynes artist and further more wayne probably will see $$$$$ from this project without having to do 1 piece of writing or performing on the project …. why would wayne talk down on a win win for himself, drake & his label …. dmx has no conflicts of interest with that project so he can truely speak how he feels …. wayne either wont or cant either way we will get a politically correct answer from him …. 😉

  • Spyz District

    Who cares what comes out of that Birdman kissing, Dik suckin mouth thou

  • If he thinks that Drake is so kind to release such a project, then he should be so kind to not do it based on her fans request not to do it………Why put on such a burden when fans are not asking you for anything close to an Aaliyah album? Try working on you’re own album, these YMCA aka YMCMB people act as if they are God’s gift to music.
