Diplo Made A Demo with Drake & It Never Got Released

Diplo is no stranger to the world of hip hop.

The collaborative heavy producer made hits like "Paper Planes" with MIA & through Major Lazer worked with many hip hop artists. Diplo has worked with artists like Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, Lil' Wayne and countless more.

When Diplo stopped by to chat with Shade 45's DJ Whookid, he was asked why he never collaborated with Drake and he informed everyone he technically has.

“I texted him some ideas. Every once in a while he always hits me up. We did a demo for his project that didn’t make the album, but, I’m always down for Drake! He's like one of my favorite current artists right now".

Drake is arguably the biggest act in hip hop right now next to Kendrick Lamar. The demo will likely never see the light of day, but at least there's groundwork in place for a potential Diplo x Drake collaboration in the future. Check out the interview below where he discusses the demo, working/meeting Travis Scott and more!
