Drake Speaks On Collabo Project With Rick Ross Called YOLO & More

Drake recently revealed with XXL that him and Rick Ross have been talking about recording a collabo mixtape called YOLO, which is short for You Only Live Once. There is currently no release date for this project yet, but Drizzy said he wants to drop the tape without any warning or hype, so it will be a surprise for us fans!

“I have been working on a mixtape with Ross,” Drake said. “A mixtape called Y.O.L.O. That means ‘You Only Live Once’. I’ve been working on that for the last couple of weeks. We haven’t really connected because he’s been going through this thing with his health. I’ve been stashing my little beats and verses.”

“Khaled waited, like, forever and a day. I was taking my sweet time trying to craft this piece of music because I knew he needed a special moment,” Drizzy told MTV News at the song’s video shoot in Miami. “When I did it, I was like, ‘OK, it’s gotta be me, Ross and Wayne.’ That’s the first time anybody has ever heard all three of us on a record.”

After leaking the song onto the Internet on May 12, Khaled and company were out shooting the video for “I’m On One” this past weekend — just 15 days later — and that fact isn’t lost on Drake. “To be out here shooting a video, it’s amazing how things work nowadays,” he said. “I used to make music and never think anyone was gonna hear it, now I make music and two weeks later, we’re shooting crazy videos in Miami, living the life.”

Aside from working with Wayne, who Drake is signed to and frequently shows appreciation for, the Toronto-born rapper spoke on his admiration for his “brother” Rozay. “That’s one of my favorite people to rap with in the world,” Drizzy said. “That’s family the same way YM is family, the same way that OVO is family,” he said, name-checking his Young Money and October’s Very Own teams. “Ross know what it is, MMG all day, I hold that close to my heart.” – MTV

Video: Lil Twist Speaks On Collabo Mixtape With Justin Bieber

November 20, 2010 by Danny M


“Me and Justin are working on this mixtape,” Twist confirmed to MTV News. “We probably gonna title it Best of Both Worlds, or Best of Young Rap, Best of Young Pop. We got a few records done. The recent record that was talked about was ‘Billionaire’. We did ‘Billionaire’ by Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars. We gonna get ready to leak that out. We’re gonna leak something real soon.”

Any further details about when more music from the twosome might drop is still very TBD. “I don’t have the date on the mixtape yet, because we’re still working hard on it,” the MC explained. “We’re trying to get new beats, because now, like, some of the beats that we’ve used are old. … So we’re gonna get new beats and go back in and try and make an EP.”

The idea of the two working on some music together was really an idea Bieber came up with, Twist explained. “Me and Justin, we actually met through a mutual friend and after that we got real cool actually,” he recalled. “We started working in the studio, sending stuff through the Mac book and everything. And then he was like, ‘Yo, bro, we should do a mixtape. Let’s go.’ We just started then.”
