@Phontigallo is the realest dude I’ve been in contact with as far as the rap industry goes. He cements my claim with his answers regarding Drake in this interview. Phontigga was asked about Drizzy recently dedicating his BMI award to him and Little Brother member, 9th Wonder, to which he said:
You’ve always said Drake was your homie, and he stated in the past that he wanted you on his next album. Is that still happening?
To my knowledge, it’s not happening. We’ve made contact with each other but all of my attempts to make something real happen have led to a dead end. I saw that he dedicated his BMI award to me and while that was a very noble and thoughtful gesture, I’d much rather he had dedicated himself to finishing a verse for one of me and 9th’s songs. That, to me, seems like a more tangible way of showing gratitude. But with that said, I’m still a fan and I think he’s an incredibly talented artist. When ‘Take Care’ drops, he’s got my money.
For those that don’t know, in his early days Aubrey collaborated with the group on “Think Good Thoughts” from his second mixtape “Comeback Season”. There was a video where the Toronto rapper claimed he had plans to do another record with 9th in the future, which has yet to come to fruition. Gee, I wonder why?
