Because it featured Drake, Lil Wayne's No Ceilings 3 track "B.B. King Freestyle" immediately became one of the project's most-streamed tracks.

B.B. King's people are all for that.

Vassal Benford, who runs the late bluesman's estate, gushed about the DJ Khaled hosted track in an interview with Variety.

"When I heard ‘B.B. King Freestyle,’ I was shocked, as this is exactly what we wanted," Benford said. "For DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne and Drake to show love makes a big statement on behalf of the music world regarding B.B. King and the significance of the blues. We would like to thank them on behalf of the family members and the B.B. King Estate, and welcome all three artists to the project in whatever capacity."

According to Benford, they are working on a King biopic, and would love to have Drake, Wayne, and Khaled participate.
