Phonte On Working With Drake
I really hope this happens! They made some classic joints in 2007 like “Don’t You Have A Man” and “Think Good Thoughts”. Drake used to be heavily Phonte influenced as well. I feel what ‘Te was saying about Universal and what not, but Drake has the power right now, to put on people that inspired him in this industry where those rappers don’t get enough shine (a perfect example is Kanye “putting on” Mos Def and Talib Kweli. These are essentially cats that put Kanye on, but when Kanye got “bigger” than them in the industry, he returned the favor by putting them in the mainstream forefront with him, and most recently, signing Mos Def).Drake can easily do that for ‘Te, and I think it would be great for both artists’ career. It will be more exposure to the mainstream for Phonte, and more respect in the hip-hop world for Drake where some people think because he sings and stuff, that he wasn’t once (and still is) one of the dopest, new hip-hop artists in modern music.
