Drake Confirms Jay-Z Collabo, “That Was Probably The Most Key Moment In My Life”

The buzz continues to grow for Toronto rap newcomer Drake. The Young Money signee recently did an interview with UK radio personality DJ Semtex where he spoke on his rumored collaboration with Jay-Z.

Drizzy confirmed with Semtex that he has been in the studio with Jay, as producer Just Blaze posted on his Twitter account. “I’ve been blessed enough to work with Jay in the last couple weeks and I mean people are just gonna have to wait, you’ll have to see what comes of it.” [Listen Here]

While not offering any more details on the collaboration the former Degrassi actor said working with Jay was one of “the most key moment in my life.”

Drake is expected to fly overseas in late June/early July to play a show with Weezy and other newcomer Kid Cudi – with whom the rapper says, as another up-and-coming new face in the game he is “very proud of.”

XXLMag.com reported earlier this week that Drake is in the process of signing with an undisclosed major. He says he wants the album, titled Thank Me Later, to drop before Christmas. As far as other possible features besides Jigga and Wayne, he says, “Just know the best of the best will be involved.” Drake revealed to MTV News that he has also worked with Kanye West and Young Jeezy. – Elan Mancini

    I agree, YME will never be a dynasty…most artist labels produce stars outside the artist, and for the record Drake been out since 2006…debut coming out damn near 2010. Nicki Minaj no album date, Currensy left first opportunity, Wayne cant even get Rebirth out…
