Drake Talks Take Care, Possible Joint LP With Rick Ross?

Close to two months before Drake delivers Take Care, the Young Money star is currently putting the final touches on his highly anticipated sophomore album.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Toronto-native gave some details on what fans can expect on the October 24 release date—which also happens to be Drake’s 25th birthday.

Drizzy says he plans to have two versions of the CD, one regular version and another special birthday version with plenty of bonus tracks.

“Obviously, I can only fit so many songs on a CD,” he told EW. “So what I’m doing is there will be a Take Care physical edition in stores that’ll hopefully have 15 to 17 songs on it. Then I know a lot of people do deluxe editions. But since October 24 is a special day for me, I got, like, a Take Care birthday edition that I’m going to put on iTunes that will have extra songs.”

While previously released cuts like, “Dreams Money Can Buy” and “Trust Issues” will both be on Take Care’s birthday edition, fans can expect a lot more unheard material as well.

“That birthday edition might be a stupid amount of songs,” he said. “I’m just forewarning everybody. I want to service people a lot of music to get you through fall, winter, spring, and into the next summer. I want this music to last. That’s not to say I won’t be working on new things. But I just want to create something that has a long shelf life than the average album these days.”

One of the other projects Drake is contemplating is a joint LP with Lil Wayne, which Cash Money co-founder Bryan “Baby” Willaims told was in the works. But another possibility is a collaboration album with Rick Ross.

“One of the people I enjoy rapping with most in this business is Rozay,” he said. “Me and him have talked about potentially doing something after our albums come out. I just love making songs with him. Every time we make a song it just seems to be something I love listening to after the fact when I’m in my car.”
