As the release date of Drake’s new album, Nothing Was The Same (September 24) looms larger, it’s getting harder and harder for the rapper to keep things under wraps.
Already, Drake has released a handful of songs, including the Destiny’s Child sampling “Girls Love Beyonce,” “The Motion” and the controversial “Jodeci Freestyle” with J. Cole, that may or may not be on the album. Right now, only “Started From The Bottom” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home” have been confirmed as tracks on NWTS.
Drake also spilled the beans that Lil Wayne, Scottish producer/DJ Hudson Mohawke and Jay Z would make cameos on the record. And now it seems that it’s been revealed just what Jay’s doing on the album.
According to Billboard, HOV lends two verses to the album’s outro, tentatively titled “Pound Cake,” which has Drake making it clear that he’s the best rapper we’ve ever had: ”Studied the game to the letter and I did it better, like I’m supposed to feel guilty?”
Jay previously appeared on”Light Up” from Drake’s 2010 debut Thank Me Later.
Vibe also reported that Drake will be working with producers like Noah “40″ Shebib for a song called “Wu Tang Forever,” Detail for “305 to My City” and Hit-Boy for “Trophies.”
