Too Short thought he was going to do a record with Drake.
But then Drake reached the pinnacle of mainstream success and lost the OG's number.
“I was really focused on being kinda like on that Drake vibe, and I was just about to do a song with Drake,” he told HipHopDX. “I feel like it might have happened, and then he got the 13 Billboard Awards, and nobody answered the phone anymore. I was like, ‘F*ck.’ I ain’t call too many times. I just fell back like, damn. I missed the window.”
E-40, who was also on the call, then explained that if they want to do a record with Drake these days they just have to up their game.
“You know what it is?” he said. “$hort, let me tell you something. If Drake was out when ‘Blow the Whistle’ first came out going crazy or ‘Tell Me When to Go,’ he would have been on the records. We had a relationship with him. We was cool. We would have been like, we send this over, he would have got on it right away because he get on hot shit. He get on n*gga’s sh*t that’s hot. You know what I’m saying? We catch one, I’m sure he’d get on that. Drake roll with me. I f*ck with Drake.”
