With the return of his United States visa, a new record deal with We The Best Music Group and a slew of hit singles in rotation, Mavado is winning.
Some exclusive inside info reaching DancehallHipHop is that the Gully Gad and rap star Drake plans to release a collaborative dancehall/hip hop album, similar to Nas and Damian Marley’s critically acclaimed Distant Relative.
“Drizzy and Mavado will be doing something epic through Khaled We The Best and we are excited about it,” a source inside the Gully camp told DancehallHipHop. “Since Vado return to the States and sign with Khaled there are a number of collaboration requests coming in from several rappers, but definitely he is looking forward to drop a full length LP with Drake. Drizzy and Vado are close friends so its only natural. You can look for appearances from Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Khaled and Busta Rhymes to name a few.”
In a recent interview Mavado says he is looking to drop a collaboration with Young Money head Lil Wayne.
“From a couple years ago I’ve always wanted to do a mad record with [Lil] Wayne,” Mavado said. That kid is crazy, trust me he’s out of this world. It’s gon’ happen in due time. “We gon’ put some steroids to this game and turn it up… loud.”
Drake sophomore album Take Care hit stores on November 15. While Mavado is currently touring the United States.
