Drake has collabed with a lot of people. It’s only inevitable given how long and storied his career is at this point. However, who is this favorite rapper to perform alongside? Drake answered that question during a recent show on the It’s All a Blur tour. “I was shooting a music video with my favorite rapper to rap with,” Drake began while performing in Vegas. By the way, I got a lot of respect for a lot of rappers. But I got one guy, he’s my favorite to rap with on any song. His name is Rick Ross. That’s my brother. And we were in the Palms Hotel overlooking Vegas and I was saying I wonder if I’m ever going to be big enough to play these huge arenas that I was looking down on. And hey, here we are.”
Over the years, Drake and Ross have collabed on 14 songs. The first of these was the 2009 DJ Khaled track “Fed Up”, on which both Drake and Ross featured. A year later, Ross featured Drake on “Aston Martin Music”. Most of their collabs have been Drake features on Ross-led songs. However, Ross also have a few features on Drake tracks as well. 2019’s “Money in the Grave” peaked at #7. Their only collab to chart higher than that is 2021’s “Lemon Pepper Freestyle”, which hit #3.

Drake Album Hype Grows
Speaking on collabing with Drake, one person is very excited for his upcoming album, For All The Dogs.
