Drake took a trip to Young Money radio yesterday and discussed with Lil Wayne his new mixtape Dark Lane Demo Tapes.

According to Drake, he decided to drop full project of loosies -- rather than some singles -- to set the tone for the album he has coming this summer.

Drake and Wayne haven't been collaborating as much as they used to, and the two good friends explained why at the end of the interview. [Jump to the hour and two-minute mark.]

"Let me explain to the people though. Now, something about me and Drizzy songs that we do together, we are both perfectionists. So, it's not like, you know you send me a joint, I'm going to throw a verse on there. We don't work like that," Wayne explained.

"We got a standard we got to live up to and we got a track record and a legacy we got to always protect," Drake cut in.  "And then on top of that, it's like we have this thing where it's like, well, if I'm a send you a joint and I'm going to go first, first of all, I already know, it's like, all right, I know this man's about to go crazy on me ... In rap there's no score to define a winner or there's no championship game. So, these are the moments of competition that we truly enjoy. Oh yeah."

"It's very much a competition," Wayne confirmed.

"Well look, on that note, you have my word as a man.  And Mack [Maine], you can hold me to this when we get off the phone, I'm going to be in the studio," Drake said. "What's today? Friday? I'm going to be in the studio all weekend. By midweek or early, or maybe Monday night, you will have at least two joints."

Who brings it harder when Wayne and Drake link up?
