Do we really want a Drake x Kanye album?

The verdict is in from the cyber world

Weekly updates


So Drizzy and Ye have been hinting at the prospect of a collab project for a while now.  “We have a few things that we’ve worked on, and it’s always just about finding a place for it,” Drake said back in April. “With [Kanye], you never know: He might call me tonight, and be like, ‘Yo, these two songs that we did are coming out”.

And then this billboard mysteriously popped up in LA.  “Calabasas is the new Abu Dhabi” reads the sign, alongside the symbols for Drake’s OVO Sound and Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music record labels. Is it just a coincidence that the billboard has appeared just in time for the 2016 MTV VMA’s? We think not.

So if we’re trusting our intuition, and the rumours are true, how do we feel about the collab? Does it have the potential to be something huge or, rather, a huge overrated piece of work? Naturally, we headed to Twitter. I mean, it is 2016. Check out what you guys have already had to say about the project below. A big debate has ensued; it’s a pretty mixed reaction. Also, keep your eyes peeled on the VMA’s in the coming hours for further hints. Stay tuned fam.

Our initial reaction, for sure. But is it all talk? We’re not sure if we could handle more suspense.

02.

Many of us have reservations; it’s been one of the most hyped collabs of all time and, if it happens, we’re going to be pretty tough on them.

03.

Either way, the project will have us frothing at the mouth.

04.

Some were quick to point out the potentially contradictory styles of the artists. Is Drake the passive? Is Yeezy the aggressive? Would the result be a beautifully-crafted passive aggressive baby?

05.

Will there be a confusion of subject matter? Or an identity crisis? Will we just be swimming in feels and thinking about everyone and everything?

06.

HATE. Pure HATE.

07.

For those who believe that Drake and Kanye are overrated, this collab seems like a lot of hype. But, I mean, how could you not be hyped at the prospects? They are kings.

08.

Many of you have been drawing parallels with Yeezy’s Jay Z colab Watch the Throne. Can parallels really be made, though? The end result, if true, would have to be a completely different sound.

09.

More HATE.

010.

And lastly, some are extremely adamant that the announcement is going to be dropped at the 2016 MTV VMA’s within the next couple of hours. Stay tuned. Keep your eyes peeled. If they’re right, shit is about to go down.
