After the release of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V, a lot of fans were hoping for another dope collaboration with Drake, sadly the song was never finished. According to Johnny Yukon, the co-writer of the song “What About Me”, told Rolling Stone that Wayne wanted Drake on the track. Yukon had received emails that Drake was going to drop a verse, but he’s not sure what happened and they found out this week that Drake was not going to be on the song after all.

Wayne’s team decided to draft another rapper, this time it was Post Malone. Post went into the studio and recorded his part last minute. Yukon explained that something got delivered wrong with the version featuring Post Malone, which is why it didn’t end up on the album.The song “What About Me” was still added to the album but  only includes a feature from Sosamann. Fans are still hoping the Post Malone version will be released soon.
