The Canadian rapper's new album, which is scheduled to be released on September 17, will feature guest stars like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and TNGHT's Hudson Mohawke.
Drake has enlisted at least two rap moguls for his "Nothing Was the Same". In an interview with Rolling Stone, Drake confirmed that his forthcoming third album would feature guest appearances from Roc Nation founder Jay-Z and Young Money boss Lil Wayne.
Superstar producer and member of TNGHT Hudson Mohawke will also contribute to the album. The Scottish DJ previously worked in Kanye West's "Yeezus" and helped produce "Cruel Summer", a compilation album from West's G.O.O.D. Music label.
"This album is about growth," Drake said of his upcoming release in the interview. "When I play it for people, they ask, 'Who's that rapping?' I'm like, 'That's me.' "
The album will also include an emotional song called "Connect". "That one hits you in the heart," the 26-year-old rapper described the song. "It's painful and beautiful at the same time."
"Nothing Was the Same" is set to arrive on September 17. It will serve as the follow-up to "Take Care", his 2011 Grammy Award-winning album that has gone platinum and sold more than 2 million copies.
