Lil Wayne and Drake perform at Lil Weezyana Festival at Champions Square on Aug. 28, 2015 in New Orleans.

As fans continue to indulge in Drake's surprise project Dark Lane Demo Tapes, on Friday (May 1), Drizzy kicked it with his mentor Lil Wayne on his Young Money Radio show and discussed future collaborations between the YM teammates. 

"The world want to know, Mack want to know, my mama want to know when is we going to give the people another joint, man? Me and you. Come on now," said Wayne." Drake replied by saying, "I'm ready any time." 

Past records between Drake and Wayne include "Believe Me," "Miss Me," "Right Above It," and "HYFR." According to Weezy, because he and Drizzy are perfectionists, that staggered the release of new music. 

"Now, something about me and Drizzy songs that we do together, we are both perfectionists," said Wayne. "So, it's not like, you send me a joint, I'm going to throw a verse on there and…We got a standard we got to live up to, and we got a track record and a legacy we got to always protect. And then on top of that, it's like we have this thing where it's like, well, if I'm a send you a joint and I'm going to go first, first of all, I already know, it's like, all right, I know this man's about to go crazy on me."

Drake doubled down on his stance and vowed to send Wayne "at least two joints" by next week.

"Well look, on that note, you have my word as a man and Mack, you can hold me to this when we get off the phone, I'm going to be in the studio," he said. "What's today? Friday? I'm going to be in the studio all weekend. By midweek or maybe Monday night, you will have at least two joints."

Drizzy also spoke about why he's been sharing photos of his son Adonis recently. “It was great for me. It was great to just share that with the world,” he told Wayne. “I just felt like, it wasn’t even anything I talked to anybody about or anything I planned. I just woke up one morning and was like, ‘You know what, this is just something that I want to do,’” he said.

Drake then said he plans to “go places with my son and share memories” in the future. “I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket,” Drake said. “I just wanted to free myself of that.”
