Drake's posthumous Aaliyah project is "an awesome collaboration," Lil Wayne has told The Associated Press. "Everybody knows what Aaliyah did and done for music and culture, period, and it's always good to do that, for not only for people like that, just for her fans – you know what I mean," said Wayne in an interview. "Drake's a very thoughtful person. Everyone knows that. It's an awesome collaboration." Wayne also called Aaliyah's work "still awesome" and "better than a lot of music right now."

Details are still murky on new posthumous album, which Drake is co-producing without help from key Aaliyah collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott, who aren't involved. Drake in August posted a new song, "Enough Said," featuring previously unreleased vocals by Aaliyah.

haven't been contacted to work on the project despite Aaliyah's label, Blackguard Records, saying otherwise.
