Drizzy and Weezy pull the plug on their planned collaborative project because they don't want to be compared to Jiggaman and Kanye West.

and are no longer paired up to make a collaborative album. Both of the heavyweight rappers agree to call off the duet in order to avoid being compared to fellow MCs and , who have already dropped a similar project "" earlier this year.

"Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album," Drizzy told XXL mag. "We just agreed that it would be looked upon as... It would be sort of this competition [with 'Watch the Throne']. I feel like it would get caught in this whirlwind of hype. [Weezy] agreed. We just said, 'If we do it, we'll do it down the line. But right now is not the time'."

Instead of doing a collab with Weezy, Drizzy crafts a mixtape with under the title of "Y.O.L.O." which means You Only Live Once. "I've been working on that for the last couple of weeks," the Canadian rapper shared about his project with the Maybach Music boss. "We haven't really connected because he's been going through this thing with his health."

Though so, Drizzy has already had some rhymes to deliver. "I've been stashing my little beats and verses. I don't have a drop date for it or a time for it. To be honest, it's something I just really wanted to pop up out of nowhere. I'm not gonna release no single or anything. It's something I want to do because I enjoy like working with Ross."

The "Marvin's Room" crooner is currently promoting his second studio album "" which is coming out in the United States on November 15. When the album leaked a few days ago, he said he's "looking forward to hearing the feedback from everyone." He believed that "a reasonable leak" would help boost the album sales, instead of bringing them down.

Drizzy took different route in making the album. Instead of having an overblown production, he chose to record his new materials in low-key sessions. "That's one of the biggest stories behind this album, it's either my way or we're not doing it - in everything," he once explained. "Every photo shoot, every video, every step I'm taking I feel like I've earned the right to do it my way, so part of doing it my way I want you to see who I am really around."
