Drake sees potential in rising L.A. star Blueface.
Los Angeles' Blueface has been making waves for the past few months and it looks like he's about to blow, given that he's received his biggest co-sign to date. As we all know, Drake has a penchant for discovering new talent before they become household names and it looks like he's had Blueface on his playlist for a minute now.
A collaboration between Drake and buzzing L.A. rapper Blueface is on the horizon. Blueface recently revealed that Drake reached out to him via Instagram DM's and offered to work together on some music. In the screenshot of their conversation, Drake praised Blueface for his songs, "Next Big Thing" and "Dead Locs." He referred to both songs as his "anthems" and that he's been putting a lot of people on to Blueface's music.
"Trust me shits about to poppppp once people catch up," Drake wrote before offering to collaborate. "You know I'm always ready to cook... Boi1da got a beat he made for us that slaps so hard."
Blueface seemed to be shocked by the fact that Drake even knew who he was, writing, "Shit just got real real quic."
It's unsure when we'll end up hearing this collaboration, but maybe it'll land on Drake's follow-up to Scorpion. The Toronto rapper recently revealed that he was going to be working on his new album after he wrapped up the Aubrey & The Three Migos tour which officially concludes in Atlanta on Nov. 18th.
