Information about Drake’s upcoming new album, Nothing Was the Same, has been coming out in increments over the past few weeks. First it was the news that the album had been pushed back then there was the release of the album art which features a little kid with a big ‘fro , mostly likely representing a younger Drake and the rapper now.
Earlier this week, it was also announced that Drake’s father would be contributing some vocals to a track. Today, the official tracking list for the album was released and the biggest shock could be that for once, Lil’ Wayne is not featured on the album like it was rumored at one point. The only rappers to appear on the album are Jay-Z and Detail.
Another surprise is that after it was announced that his father would be contributing vocal to “Heat of the Moment,” the song sadly did not make it to the album; “The Motion” and “5 AM in Toronto” which had previously leaked, also did not make it on the album.
There will also be a deluxe version of the album which will feature “All Me”, his collaboration with Big Sean and 2 Chainz as well as “Come Thru”.

Remember when news hit that rapper, 2 Chainz and his “posse” had been robbed at gunpoint earlier this week? And then he went on the defense on Twitter by saying that it didn’t happen and that if it had really happened, the thieves would have posted their newly acquired merchandise on the web?
Well, turns out that next time 2 Chainz should just admit that it did happen because earlier today, gossip site, TMZ acquired video showing exactly what happened that faithful night which, let’s be honest, we all know what happened.
P.S., according to TMZ, 2 Chainz ran away like a little baby which led to him tripping and falling on the floor where one of the thieves got him, stealing his phone and wallet.
