Video: Drake Talks Jay-Z Collabo, “Light Up”

Track is produced by Tone Mason and co-produced by 40, via MTV.

True story, Drake spit his whole verse to me and my boy last week in Toronto. He even did the beginning of Jay’s verse too. Insanity.

He said they each have 32 bars, sorta like him and Lil Wayne did on “Ransom,” and even though he wanted to do a “No Hook” with Jay, this one has a chorus because apparently it’s sick.

He explained that he’s rapping about where he [thinks he] is in his career and then Jay comes tells him where he is.

He seemed pretty confident that this should satisfy anyone who was let down by the whole shitstorm that came with “Off That.” Apparently the story behind that is that it was a reference track he made for Jay-Z & Timbaland, two established artists in the game, who can rap about trend setting or trend stopping. But then Jay insisted he do the chorus, instead of Timbo.

No snitching, but Drake also mentioned that he had done two other (and apparently better) songs for Blueprint 3 that didn’t make the cut. Apparently he had a verse at the end of Jay & Kanye’s “Hate,” (but his verse got scrapped on the final version) and that he did a song with Jay called “Sweep” or “Sweep Up” (we were drinking,) where Jay talks about Bey and his love for her. Both of these songs have yet to see the light of day. 40 you need to holler at me.

It was a great conversation. Hopefully I’ll be able to drop more little tidbits here and there, otherwise you can expect to see a nice interview before the album drops.

Drake’s Thank Me Later is slated for a March 30th release as of now.

    I am TEABAGGIN my ITUNES RIGHT NOW. SHIEEEEET

    I feel like punching an eskimos dog square in his nose right before it gives up his life to run the Iditarod. Shout Out mike vick

    This beat is going to encourage niggas to cheat on they wife with an instrumental, Shout out TIGERRRRRRR WOO

    Where do i go here, I remember the 1st time I heard Jay Electronica and I couldnt believe my ears, I was listening to Victory is in My Clutches and I got a full on boner. Swear to god my next logical step was to forward it to my nigga Nation and he swears till this day I didnt put him on.

    Anyways Shout Out Nahright Comments and I dont want to name check you niggas because I might forget one and then get involved in some kind of full on twitter beef and falling out of virtual homies. Fuck that

    Drake is talented by he all hype in my opinion. I cant by into all this shit he been getting cause of weezy jefferson. There are a gang of MCs who are better then this guy. J.Cole, Jay Electronica, Joell Ortiz… hell I think B.o.B. is better… I can go on, and the bullshit singing…wow. He sound like Magoo from timberland old camp when he sings.

    I’m so tired of hearing the dude. He got the machine behind him and young money from the jump and everyone acting like he just this did all this grinding by himself….he switch his entire flow the minute he got with weezy jefferson. Weezy, Niki Manaj and Drake all have the same flow and cadence. Shit is pathetic!! Fuck all the young money bullshit!!
