How Drake & Post Malone missed out on Lil Wayne’s “What About Me” feature

Drake and Post Malone almost featured on Lil Wayne’s ‘What About Me’.

The rapper has just released his eagerly-anticipated ‘Tha Carter V’ album and while it features a number of celebrity cameos, Drake and Post Malone were originally tapped to appear on the track ‘What About Me’.

 

Johnny Yukon, who co-wrote the track, told Rolling Stone: “The initial idea was to get Drake on it. That was something [Lil Wayne] said to me that night [he recorded his vocals]… Then there were emails back and forth — ‘They think Drake’s going to get on it.

 

“The last thing we heard about it, around a year and a half ago, while we were sending the song back and forth, making edits … at that point, the emails were like, ‘Drake’s gonna cut to it’. It was gonna be a thing for a sec. I don’t know what happened. We didn’t find out that Drake was officially not going to be on it until this week. We heard six people cut on this song. One day this week, [employees for my publishing company] were talking to some of the attorneys [in Lil Wayne’s camp], and they were like, ‘Can we at least confirm it’s not Drake?’ or something like that. They’re like, ‘Yeah, it’s not.'”

“There is a version [of ‘What About Me’] that Post cut literally this week but something happened, I don’t know what. Something got delivered wrong. That all happened last night.”

However, neither artist appears on the track, with rapper Sosamann contributing instead. Yukon also revealed that he wrote most of the album in 2015. He said: “The beat was all pretty much done by myself. I was kind of sad about an ex. That’s what I’m most excited about — it’s this emotional record. I was surprised when [Wayne] said he was going to cut it.”
