Mavado and Canadian hip-hop superstar, Drake to Make Album
KINGSTON 5(RJR): After performing together within the last year, prominent dancehall singjay, Mavado and Canadian hip-hop superstar, Drake are set to put their chemistry to the ultimate test. According to reports from UrbanIslandz, Mavado and the Young Money rapper will shortly be releasing a joint album; combining dancehall and hip-hop. The collaborative album bears similarities to Distant Relatives, the joint effort by reggae superstar, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and American hip-hop veteran Nas that was released in May 2010. A source within Mavado’s Gullyside camp revealed the news to the online source intimating that the new album will be done through the conduit of DJ Khaled’s label, We The Best Music Group. It was also revealed that since Mavado returned to the United States and signed with DJ Khaled, there are a number of collaboration requests coming in from several rappers. But he is reportedly looking forward to dropping a full length LP (long-playing microgroove record) with Drake. However, fans can look out for possible appearances with other Young Money artistes Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, along with DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes to name a few.
