Why Was Drake Off Lil Wayne’s Album?

Lil Wayne finally dropped his long awaited “Carter V” album and being the label owner of YMCB fans wondered why Drake didn’t make an appearance on the project.

Lil Wayne spoke with CRWN in an interview to clear up any rumors that there is bad blood between Weezy and Drizzy.

“He has a song that didn’t get cleared,” Weezy said. “The clearances man. The clearances man. People be trippin’ when they find out who it is and when they find out what the song’s subject is about. They don’t represent the names of something like that. You really don’t know why they say no.”

The above statement was Lil Wayne’s explanation for the absence of the chart topping Drake who broke stream records with his album “Scorpion” earlier this year.

Post Malone was also planned to be a guest artist on “Carter V” with Drake for the single “What About Me”. We can only assume the same clearance issues is what caused Malone not to be featured. Sosamann ended up being the featured artist for the Lil Wayne album cut.
