Drake Taps Jay Z For Outro Of ‘Nothing Was The Same’


/ September 4, 2013

Here’s what we know so far about Drake’s third album Nothing Was The Same. On the production side, Drake has tapped his right-hand beatsmith Noah “40” Shebib for “Wu Tang Forever,” Detail for “305 to My City” and Hit-Boy for “Trophies.” Drizzy may or may not have even recruited 16-year-old wunderkind producer Wondagurl.

As far as features are concerned, the Toronto MC revealed to XXL that his pops would be making a cameo. There will also be tracks dubbed “Tuscan Leather” and “Paris Morton II.” But the most recent tidbit about NWTS? An appearance from Jay Z.

Billboard reports:

The outro to the album, tentatively titled “Pound Cake,” features two incisive verses from Jay Z, even as Drake asserts himself above any and all competition by the song’s climactic ending. “Studied the game to the letter and I did it better, like I’m supposed to feel guilty?” he rhymes.

This would mark Drake and Hov’s second collaboration since “Light Up” on the former’s 2010 debut Thank Me Later.
