Drake Apologizes For Snubbing Phonte

A few months back, Phonte of Little Brother vented about Drake’s reluctance to collaborate. In an interview with The Village Voice, Drizzy explains the delay and apologizes to Phonte for giving him the cold shoulder.

You’ve talked a lot about your admiration for Phonte. How come another collaboration with him still hasn’t happened?
With me and Tay, I kinda dropped the ball on a feature he needed me to do, just being 100% honest. I really wanted to do a record with him, and we actually did do a record for my album, and then something happened with the producer and the beat, and it started getting funny so I had to scrap the record. And then he was like, “Well, can you do this feature for me,” and at the time I was trying to find my sound and trying to figure out what this album was going to be about, and I kind of let it slip through the cracks. That was my fault, and I do apologize to Phonte for that. But I still want to make it happen; I talked to 9th Wonder about trying to make it happen, we’ll get it eventually. He knows he’s one of the biggest influences on my career.

    INTERVIEWER: You’ve talked a lot about your admiration for Phonte. How come another collaboration with him still hasn’t happened?

    DRAKE: Fuck that nigga. I’m gonna go work on my collab album with Rick Ross and crank out a few more songs with Lil Wayne. Maybe do another song or 2 with Nicki Minaj. No time to return phone calls from the guy that gave me my whole style. Yea I’m really glad I “found my sound” now, and it obviously doesn’t have anything to do with Phonte, or hip hop for that matter.
