Around mid-March, Ross confirmed Drake’s involvement on the compilation.
“The biggest compilation in recent time, man,” Ross told radio host Bootleg Kev. “We going back to the era of the dope emcees, when Ruff Ryders was doing compilations and you just love the energy the dudes brought to the table…The new album from Maybach Music/Warner. It’s gonna be big…Yeah, yeah, [Drake’ll be on there], most definitely. Drake will be on the compilation and you know that’s the homie so it’s all love. He’s embracing the movement and you know, it just feels good to rock out with your family. Shout-out to YMCMB.” (Bootleg Kev)

We making, and it’s not just a temporary thing, but we’re making the best music, man. And we make all ranges of music. I think the industry’s just understanding that.
