Drake and Lil Wayne Cancel Collaboration Album Because of “Watch the Throne”

Talking to XXL, Drake revealed that a proposed collaboration album between him and Lil Wayne was scrapped for fear of comparison to Watch the Throne.

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.
