At Canadian record label October’s Quite Personal (OVO) Festival, rappers Kanye West and Drake announced that they will be collaborating on an album, which is scheduled for release this 12 months. Rumors of a collaboration have been circulating for months, and just last Monday, Aug. 1, the rappers confirmed people rumors. The announcement was manufactured on the last night of Drake’s OVO Fest, when West manufactured a surprise appearance throughout Drake’s set. “Hot Bling” rapper Drake intervened and clarified what West meant by saying, “What my brother was asking in advance of was, are you prepared if we make an album? Which is what he was asking.” Shortly soon after the music artists made the announcement, OVO Sound Radio officially blasted the announcement on Twitter. “Collaborative tape among @kanyewest & @Drake will release this year.
Official announcement at #OVOFEST more details later on this 12 months,” the record label wrote.
Earlier this 12 months, in an interview with Zane Lowe, Drake described that he was supposed to do a mixtape with West, but specifics weren’t revealed until eventually just lately.
