Young Money’s Drake may reportedly have something in the works with Hollywood actor Will Smith‘s long-awaited music return.
According to reports, Smith’s 16-year-old son Jaden hinted at Drizzy and Big Willie possibly hooking up this weekend.
Will Smith called in to his son Jaden’s Beats 1 radio show MSFTS Frequency to talk Suicide Squad, familial dynamics, and the constant stream of creativity clearly present in the Smith leniage. During their conversation, Jaden casually asked Will about his future musical prospects — prompting Will to quietly reveal a current collaborator — Drake. (Complex)
Earlier this year, Will revealed he had clocked in studio time with rap superstar Kanye West.
“You know I’ve recorded a lot,” Will Smith says. “I’ve recorded a lot, but I don’t have anything I like yet. I’ve recorded around 7 or 8 [songs] and it’s not for certain, it’s just explorative…” (Hollyscoop)
Although brief with his comments, Big Willy recently revealed he hit the studio with the Grammy-winning stud.
The 46-year-old actor has been in the studio with Kanye West and has even been taking tips from his 16-year-old son Jaden. His last solo album was Lost And Found in 2005. “I went into the studio with Kanye. I’m thinking about it. I’m exploring,” he said at a special screening of his new film, Focus, in London.

A couple years ago, Team Kanye allegedly responded to remarks Will made about his family.
“Kanye knows Will personally and [doesn’t think] Will meant any disrespect to Kim or her family,” a source close to Kanye tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “He didn’t even say anything about Kim or her family. He’s a veteran at this and even if he meant it about them, he didn’t say [anything] directly about them.” Both Kanye and mother-to-be Kim Kardashian love Will and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, our source tells us. They’re huge fans of the Smith family’s work. (Hollywood Life)
