Drake Was Supposed to be Featured on Wiz Khalifa’s “Work Hard, Play Hard (Remix)” [Video]
The remix to Wiz Khalifa’s “Word Hard, Play Hard” featured two of the biggest names in rap, as Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne delivered verses for the Pittsburgh rapper’s single—but it was almost an even grander affair. In an interview with Montreality, Wiz revealed that Drake was supposed to be on the song, as well.
“He boofed me, man,” the Rostrum Records rapper lamented. “He was supposed to do his verse and he ain’t do it, so we had to put it out. But it ain’t no love lost. You know, people get that done all the time in the industry.”
In addition to discussing his upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C., what kind of student he was, his favorite cereal and more, Wiz said that he hopes to work with Nas. “I wanna get in the studio with Nas; that would be cool,” he said. “I think, just lyrically, that would take me to another level. I’ve just been listening to a lot of his old CDs—well, they’re old now, but they’re not even that old. Street’s Disciple and shit like that. That was released in 04. That was some really good shit and I think it got slept on. It was one of my favorite albums of that time.”
