Drakeo The Ruler Shares Backstory Behind Upcoming Drake Feature & Flirts With New Mixtape Date
Los Angeles, CA – Drakeo The Ruler has given more details about his upcoming collaboration with Drake including a possible release date.
While speaking with the crew on No Jumper’s Mad LAtely show, the We Know The Truth rapper dished on the Instagram DM that initiated the forthcoming song, explaining the collab nearly went down while he was behind bars last year.
“Shit, they been told me he was trying to do some shit,” Drakeo remarked. “When I was in jail though he wanted me to do some shit but I had got my privileges taken and I couldn’t do it. Then I got out and I had looked in my DM and I was like, ‘Oh shit,’ and he was like, ‘Yea I’m finna send you some shit.’ He was like, ‘I did a hook for you, send your number.’”
Drakeo went on to say he is readying the record for release on Friday (January 23), along with his new mixtape The Turth Hurts. Last month, the Los Angeles-bred rapper delivered the deluxe version of his We Know The Truth mixtape, intact with features from Lil Mosey OhGeesy and Sean Kingston. Additionally, the “Fights Don’t Matter” rapper gifted fans with the studio version of his acclaimed Thank You For Using GTL mixtape, the project he recorded while being held for over a year in the Los Angeles County jail for gang-related charges following his acquittal from a related murder charge.
