Drake Says He Has To Prove Himself Before Andre 3000 Collaboration

Posted: Wednesday – June 16, 2010

Andre 3000 is one of the rappers that went on Drake’s collaboration wish list for his debut album, Thank Me Later, but a verse from 3 Stacks is noticeably absent from the LP, which is loaded with big-name features.

Explaining why Dre didn’t make the cut to VIBE, Drake said that the emcee, who is one half of rap duo Outkast, would like him to prove himself before they jumped on a track together.

“I really tried to do a song with Andre 3000, but I think it was meant for my second album,” reasoned Drake. “Dre is one of those people that needs you to do a little more. He’s one of those people that believe in his craft so much that he needs you to do more than just be over hyped or just famous. In his mind, I have to prove myself and truth is, I do. That’s just being real. I have a lot of work to do, so I actually respect him for that.”

Drake also said that for his next album, which will reportedly be titled Moments, he will have a lot less features. “I think on the second album I’ll probably only have two features. I have a few people in mind and Dre probably will be one of them,” he added.

The Canadian rapper’s first major label effort, Thank Me Later, was released online and in stores yesterday (June 15). Expectations are high and industry estimates place first week sales in the 500,000 range.
