"Lost Hills," which is emblazoned on the Yeezy Season invites, is producing talk of being a possible collaboration with Drake. Images surfaced online showing the supposed promo merch from the show, including one uploaded by GQ style writer Jake Woolf, who followed up his tweet with a promotional picture that could be billed as a collab featuring both Kanye West and Drake.
The news comes after Ye confirmed to Vogue last year that a collaborative album with Drake was on the way. "We're just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio," he revealed. "We're working on an album, so there's some exciting things coming up soon." About a month later, Drake himself teased the collaboration via an Instagram post that was a photo of the two stars standing alongside each other. "The goes the neighborhood," he wrote as the caption for the post.
In related news, Pusha T recently did an interview and revealed that West was working on a brand new album. Though he didn't unveil more details, the comment confirmed that Yeezy Season is more than just a new collection of gear.
Yeezy Season 5 takes place today in New York at 3 p.m. EST.
