So the Canadian born sractor ( singer, rapper, actor) Drake has been proving for the longest that even the most famous entertainers have weird celeb obsessions. But unlike the little people when you're famous you don't blog about stars you produce albums in their memory.
A few months ago after he got that creepy tattoo of Aaliyah on his back rumors had been circulating about Drake producing the new Aaliyah album. Well now HipHopDX has brought it back full circle. According to industry sources Drake is going to be the executive producer for the new Aaliyah album. This is supported by Drake using the deceased songtress' vocals on his upcoming single which he is going to debut at the OVO Fest August 5th. He also hinted to Tim Westwood that he had a "special thing" related to Aaliyah, a few months back during an interview, however Aaliyah's brother Rashad Haughton says there is no such project.
I'm not a big fan of the whole posthumous back from the dead album thing, especially after a certain mad white rapper totally flopped Tupacs resurrection album. One thing I do know is that as emotional as Drake can be that this will not be something to listen to alone with a bottle of wine. I hate to say this as much as I love Drake I hope he is jumping the gun with this one.
