Rapper Lil' Wayne has shared his thoughts on the Aaliyah project that Drake is working on saying it's a good move. Get the deets inside and also hear Eve's "She Bad Bad" snippet and find out about Joe Budden possibly being the next "Love & Hip Hop" star...
Lil' Wayne has spoken up in full support of Drake's involvement in a posthumous Aaliyah album calling it a "good move." He adds,
"Everybody knows what Aaliyah did and done for music and culture, period, and it's always good to do that, for not only for people like that, just for her fans - you know what I mean?" Drake's a very thoughtful person. Everyone knows that. It's an awesome collaboration."
