Video: Are Drake And Jay-Z As Powerful As Drake And Lil Wayne?

We got to work a couple nights, actually, we did a few joints and from what I hear we’re going back in to try and get some more stuff done.

Jay has been one of the most special people to me in this game. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the nights me and Jay had in the studio, and the things he’ll tell me and just the way he embraced me. It’s one of the best feelings in my life. Jay is one of those guys that you can say, ‘I look up to this guy,’ or ‘I like this guy’s music.’ I wanted to be Jay. That’s what they say about the best artists. To be a great rapper, men gotta wanna be you and women gotta wanna … you know.

I wanna be myself, but for me to say, ‘If I couldn’t be me, I wanted to be that man’ — that’s huge. … To have that man in my life and to be able to interact with him and talk to him and, best of all, work with him — there’s not a real sentence I can say to describe it. Hopefully Jay and Drake are as powerful as Drake and Wayne. I hope people see that union and it comes up more than once in the future.

Download Jay-Z Off That Feat Drake

Here is a song I’ve been looking forward to hear ever since the tracklist for the Blueprint 3 album came out. It is Jay-Z collaborating with Drake on a record called “Off That“. This was rumored to be the first single from Jay‘s album, but Run This Town and Death Of Autotune was the first/second single, so I am not sure if this will be a third single for the album in the future. This track was produced by Timbaland and you can download it below:

Why Was Drake Not On Jay-Z’s First Single?

Why Was Drake Not On Jay-Zs First Single

Jay-Z shocked the world with his new single, but was it a surprise to Drake when he didn’t hear himself on the highly-anticipated track?

There had been reports that the Canadian MC was to be featured on “Off That,” the follow-up to “D.O.A.,” from Jigga’s Blueprint 3. Instead, he released “Run This Town” featuring Kanye West and Rihanna.

“I don’t know who came up with that rumor to be honest, but I always knew what Jay’s first single was going to be,” the “Best I Ever Had” rapper told the BoomBox. “Me and Jay did a lot of work together. Maybe at one point he was considering doing it and someone got over-excited and put out a press release that I was going to be on the first single.”

Jay-Z also weighed in on the absence of Drake. “It’s very difficult to know what’s going to be my next single,” he explained to DJ Semtex. “I really just played a couple potential records and everybody ran with it. But I’m still making records.”

So what did Drake think of Hov’s new single? “I think Jay made a great choice,” he said. “I think the ‘Run This Town’ song is phenomenal. I think Kanye kills that shit. I actually heard that song when it was a Rihanna track.”

As of right now, Drake is scheduled to appear on The Blueprint 3, along with Kid Cudi, Mr Hudson, and MGMT.

Shout outs to Rap-Up and I was really hoping the first single was going to be the record Jay has with Drizzy as I am really looking forward to listen to it 😀
