When Drake and Jay-Z collaborated on “Light Up,” the two traded matching rhymes about brushing off haters — Drizzy from the vantage point of an upstart MC and Hov as the veteran with a list of accomplishments longer than Lil Wayne’s hair.
Now that Drake has scored a #1 album and loads of endorsement deals, would he consider a sequel? Well, he told MTV News he would record another song with Jay-Z, but not that song in particular.
“I probably wouldn’t title it ’Light Up 2,’ but there could definitely be potential for a record where me and Jay just spit about life,” Drake told MTV News. “I look forward to making that. I don’t think I’m ready to do it yet, though. If me and Jay do another record … I just want it to be a song. I don’t necessarily want it to be a life/time marker. I would love to do a song with Jay that hits radio. I’d love to do something that’s more musical, as opposed to all that rapping. And plus, I don’t feel like I’m in that veteran category. Like, now that I’m here six months later, after we did that song. Things happen pretty quick over here on this side, but I don’t necessarily want to reflect that in song.”
Maybe Drake can take Hov up on his offer soon for a verse. The Brooklyn icon told fans at Yankee Stadium last month that he owed Drake one after the Toronto star experienced a few technical snafus during the NYC Home and Home stop.
In the meantime, Drake is moving forward with his sophomore set . He recently recorded the second song for the collection, which again will feature production from Noah “40” Shebib.
“I did this song the other night; I’ve now completed the second song for my album,” he said. “So I only had one song before for the new album. Two nights ago, I did the second song. I’m loving it. I’m loving the sound. I’m excited again.”
