The collaboration the hip-hop world has been dying to hear has finally happened. It was only a matter of time that Young Thug, who has admitted on multiple occasions that he is a huge fan of Lil Wayne, would collaborate with his idol. Thugger is such a rabid Weezy fan that he even had plans to name his first album Tha Carter VI after Wayne’s highly decorated album series. Well, here it is: the two rappers meet on “Take Kare,” which is said to serve as the first single from the upcoming Rich Gang 2 album. Listen after the jump.

Wow, so much for originality.  After the success of Watch The Throne, there’s seriously a lot of talk going around about collaborative LPs. And the center of attention seems to be focused in on Drake. First, Birdman confirms with XXL Mag that Drizzy and Weezy are in the works of a collaborative album. Baby seemed extremely confident calling it a much “younger sound” that ‘Ye and Hov.

And now Trey Songz is deeming Drake is the very first choice when it comes to making a collaborative album.

Trey tells MTV:

Drake is the first person that comes to mind that I am that musically comfortable with in that space… He is a friend of mine as well, and I think we can pull something off … that could sound very authentic.

I mean, you got to look at (Kanye and Jay-Z) and see how long it took them to do it, you know? So it has to be organic in whatever way it happens. It can’t be a business decision and you can’t look at it in a way of making it lucrative. I think it has to be something that you are definitely going into for music’s sake. It has to be something real, because if it’s not authentic you can hear it.

So what exactly is going on? I guess you can say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I’m starting to think perhaps this is getting excessive. In no way am I trying to sound like a trend-spotter/forecaster, but I think the hip hop world has found a new one! I’m sure soon enough, more and more collaborative albums will dropping.
