A new post has surfaced on the Kanye To The forum that suggests Drake covered a number of iconic tracks — Lil Bow Wow's "Basketball," a verse on Run-DMC's "It's Like That," and Lupe Fiasco's "Kick, Push" — on a compilation album for The Superstarz Kids.

For those unaware, The Superstarz Kids essentially create covers of classic tracks tailored towards children. The album that Drake apparently contributed vocals to was released in 2013 according to listings on Spotify and Apple Music, and is titled Hip-Hop Dance Mix.

As Redditor Axwell1997 points out, however, Drake's involvement — if it is in-fact Drake and not a sound-alike — raises a few questions. Firstly, despite one Amazon listing dating back to 2010, most streaming platforms list the release date as 2013, which would have been the same time the artist released Nothing Was the Same. That he would do covers for a children's album while also debuting bangers like "Started from the Bottom" and "Hold On, We're Going Home" is quite the segue (but of course, not impossible).

If that segue is legit, as Axwell1997 continues, perhaps The Superstarz Kids had "old Drake vocals laying around." Or, maybe "the album just a compilation of songs they've done in the past."

While more sleuthing needs to be done for sure in order to discover whether this definitely is Drake OG or not, you can take a listen for yourself below (tracks one, three, and 11).
