[lastfm]Drake[/lastfm] has done a lot of collaborations in his short time in the industry. One we’ve yet to hear is a joint with [lastfm]Joe Budden[/lastfm]. But that’s not because Joe hasn’t tried to make it happen.
In a recent interview with Vibe, the [lastfm]Slaughterhouse[/lastfm] rapper talks about the collab that would have happened if the timing was right, and a bigger name hadn’t come calling for Drake’s talent.
“The funny thing is that I heard So Far Gone way before it became popular,” Joe said. “I actually reached out to him and introduced myself when it dropped. At the time he had just come off a tour, but he definitely wasn’t a star yet. He was going to fly out to New York and get in the studio with me. He didn’t end up making it though, and when he did actually make it to New York, he had to do a [lastfm]Jay-Z [/lastfm]session. I know how the game goes, and that obviously takes precedence over a Joe Budden session. But it’s all good.”
Might there still be a chance for a Budden/Drake record?
“Once he cools down, maybe I’ll get at him. I still think he’s extremely talented as a rapper.”
We finally got a Budden/[lastfm]Lloyd Banks[/lastfm] joint on Budden’s ‘Mood Muzik 4′. Let’s hope a song with Drake isn’t too far off in the distant future.
