Drake joined Elliott Wilson for a CRWN discussion, speaking on his collaboration with Wu-Tang, the original intention for "Pound Cake", the "Hold On, We're Going Home" video and more.
Drake joined RapRadar's Elliott Wilson at NYU for his CRWN interview series earlier tonight, and while the footage of the hour long discussion has yet to surface, we've been able to piece together much the interview through the consistent live tweeting of press attendees.
Drake spoke of his rumored collaboration with the Wu-Tang clan, confirming that he had recorded a song with the group, and that it will see release soon. He also shared portions of a conversation he had with Ghostface Killah.

Drizzy then revealed that "Pound Cake," his collaboration with Jay Z on Nothing Was The Same, was actual meant for Magna Carta Holy Grail.

Drake also shed some light on his contribution to Justin Timberlake's upcoming track "Cabaret," revealing that he recorded an extra-long verse that heavily references Lil Boosie.
"On Cabaret: I gave him 24 bars, I went in! I may have even sang a Lil boosie song!"— Chris Uño (@CRS_One) September 23, 2013
The OVO rapper shared that the "Hold On, We're Going Home" video will be dropping this week. He then spoke on the possibility of releasing a completely sung album, and his mother's reaction to the personal "Too Much".

Drake asked his mother to listen to 'Too Much' days before Fallon. The song upset her. He gave that disclaimer for her.— JasFly (@JasFly) September 23, 2013
Drake says in the future he looks forward to giving fans an album with just singing. #crwn— Word On Road (@WordOnRd) September 23, 2013
Oh yeah, take all these reports with a grain of salt, because according to Drake, "Twitter isn't real".
