Drake missed out on a guest spot on Lil Wayne's new album Tha Carter V after facing clearance issues, Pitchfork reports.

While in a conversation with journalist Elliott Wilson, the rapper disclosed that he had planned to collaborate with Drake until clearance issues got in the way.  “A few of the singles that [Drake and I] released throughout the years—those were Carter V songs,” he said, before citing “Believe Me” as an example of the tracks they released rather than saving for the album.

Drake wasn't the only focus point of Wayne's interview revelations. During the conversation he disclosed that he had no clue who XXXTentacion was before Tha Carter V's curator, Mack Maine, altered his focus, and that he did not process Birdman's onstage apology until after it had happened. “I was on stage, I was in performance mode, I was trying to remember the words,” he said. “Somebody actually had to tell me, ‘Oh he apologized to you onstage tonight.’”
