Lil Wayne and Drake have reportedly joined forces to shoot an upcoming music video for "Go In," a track from Drake's popular So Far Gone mixtape.
While an exact date has not been released, the duo will reportedly begin filming later this month.
Before going in for knee surgery, Drake will "go in" on set of his new video. Drizzy will be joined by Lil Wayne in the video for "I'm Goin' In," which is scheduled to shoot this month in Buffalo, New York. Young Money has a show in nearby Darien Center on August 27. (Rap Up)
Trey Songz recently filmed behind the scenes footage for the upcoming "Successful" music video alongside Drizzy.
Following the arrival of an on-set clip and several pictures taken from the shooting location of Drake's "Successful" music video, another behind-the-scene footage for the video has just been shared. Unlike the previous one which gives a look at Trey Songz's cameo appearance, this new clip mainly takes its focus on Drake. When asked about the premiere date of the full-length video, Trey said "ASAP" is when it will be completed. (Ace Showbiz)
Drake recently announced plans to re-release So Far Gone for retail purchase.
"I did this song that no one has ever heard before, ever," he revealed in an interview. "[It's] a song called 'Fear.' I recorded it when I did So Far Gone -- the first verse and half of the second verse I had gotten through. But then I just stopped because it was getting eerie. It was getting where I didn't know if I could [finish it]. And then the other night I had a moment and I finished the song. That's gonna be the last song on the retail [version of] So Far Gone. And the third verse transitions into Thank Me Later. So the last line of the third verse is gonna be the first line on my album." (MTV)
He also wrote via his personal blog to explain his reasons behind the profit-based re-release.
"I also want people to know that I am only releasing this EP so that everyone involved in the project can hold a physical copy of the CD in their hands and see it in the store," he wrote Thursday (August 20). "And for anybody else who feels that So Far Gone marked a moment in time I just wanted to give you the option to have the disc. If you got it for free and want to keep it that way than by all means I urge you too. That was a gift from me to you...Thank Me Later." (October's Very Own)
