United Rap Emirates?
A billboard has appeared in Los Angeles sparking renewed rumours of a forthcoming collaboration between Drake and Kanye West, or at the very least between their respective OVO and G.O.O.D Music labels.
The billboard was spotted and shared by a Reddit user last night. It reads “calabasas is the new abu dhabi” and includes logos for both OVO and G.O.O.D Music below the sentence. Calabasas is the exclusive southern California city where both rappers have homes, while Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Both camps have been hinting at a potential team up between the two rap giants recently. At the start of August, West joined Drake at the OVO Fest in Toronto where Drake told the audience, “are you ready if we make an album?” This was then confirmed by OVO Radio on Twitter.

A collaborative tape, or whatever shape the project takes, wouldn’t be the first time Drake and West have joined forces. They’ve shared stages together and West has supplied beats to Drake but there hasn’t been anything like an album or mixtape bringing the two close together, yet.
