Drake and Kanye West have done a great job with teasing fans about a possible collaboration album and now Kanye’s manager is adding fuel to the fire.
After Drake took to Instagram to post a photo of him and Kanye with the caption, “There goes the neighborhood,” Kanye’s manager, Scooter Braun, commented, “it begins…” with a few praying hands emojis next to it. Braun, who also manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, then took it one step further when he reposted Drake’s photo on his own Instagram account.
While Drake and Kanye have hinted at that album before, this is the first time someone outside of the two rappers mentioned a collaboration. In September, Kanye confirmed that he and Drake were working on an album, saying, “We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio.”
Although Kanye didn’t reveal a release date, he did say something was coming soon. “We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon,” he told Vogue. Kanye also teased the album before that. During an August stop on Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour, Kanye asked the crowd if they were ready for a joint album.
“Toronto, I got one question for you. Is y’all ready for this album? I’m not talking about ‘Pablo.’ I wasn’t talking about ‘Views.’ I wanna ask y’all right now, are y’all ready for this album?” he asked the Chicago crowd.
If the joint project does release, it will be just one of the projects Drake is scheduled to drop. The rapper recently announced his plans to put out a new projected titled “More Life.” Neither an album or a mixtape, “More Life” will be a playlist featuring new music and possible cameos from other OVO Sound artists and affiliates.
