Lil Wayne & Drake Shelve Joint Album Because Of Potential Comparisons With ‘Watch The Throne’

Yesterday, it was revealed that Drake and Lil Wayne have decided to shelve their much talked about joint LP. Now Drake tells XXL the exact reason behind the decision — impending comparisons to the highly successful collaborative effort from Jay-Z and Kanye West.


“Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album. We just agreed that it would be looked upon as…It would be sort of this competition [with Watch The Throne]. I feel like it would get caught in this whirlwind of hype. [Wayne] agreed. We just said, ‘If we do it, we’ll do it down the line. But right now is not the time.’”

Wise decision? We think so.
