Two of rap’s biggest names are joining forces for a new album.
During Drake’s OVO Fest in Toronto, Kanye West made a surprise appearance, dropping another big announcement on the crowd.
“Toronto, I got one question for you … Is you all ready for this album? ” he asked the audience. “I’m not talking about Pablo. I’m not talking about Views. I want to ask y’all, y’all ready for this album?”
The two rappers both had albums come out earlier this year — West’s The Life of Pablo in February and Drake’s Views in April.
To clear up any confusion about West’s announcement, Drake also came on stage to confirm a new collaborative album.
“What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album?” he told the crowd. “That’s what he was asking.”

The real question — will the album come out via Apple Music or TIDAL? Both rappers have kept their recent releases exclusive to their platform of choice (West and TIDAL, Drake and Apple), and Drake was one of the names West called out on Twitter to help resolve the beef between the two services.
I need Tim Cook Jay Z Dez Jimmy Larry me and Drake Scooter on the phone or in a room this week!!!
