Drake Is Basically Working With The Entire Smith Family

Drake Turned Down A Chance To Be On Mark Ronson's LP
The superstar rapper was "very polite about it," Mark Ronson says.

If two new hints are to be believed, Drake has been cooking up new music with the famous Smith family. The latest bit of speculation about his forthcoming Views From The 6 is that Willow Smith will appear on the long-awaited album. Last night (July 5), Drake posted an image of the singer on his Instagram with the caption “Young muse all on views,” which taken literally would mean Willow is featured on Views.

According to Hot New Hip Hop, the two musicians were both in the UK this weekend for Wireless Festival, but the cryptic post suggests it was more than just a photo-opp meet-up.

It also looks like Drake put in work with Willow’s father, Will Smith. The former Fresh Prince called into his son Jaden’s Beats 1 show and revealed that he’s piecing together his new album, hinting that there was some Drake involvement that was put in to motion after Jaden put them on a group chat together. Smith’s comeback album has been gestating for a while: Back in 2013, the Smith family patriarch said he was collaborating with Kanye West, and they were seen in a studio together in Brazil.

Maybe Drizzy could also oversee a reunion of Jada’s nu-metal band Wicked Wisdom while he’s at it, getting him one step closer to hitting for the Smith cycle.
