Drake Thinking of “Y.O.L.O” for Mixtape Title-

Drizzy and Rick Ross have been hard at work on a joint mixtape they had planned on calling “Y.O.L.O.” but since “The Motto” has become a huge song, making Y.O.L.O famous in it’s own right,  Drake is re-thinking  that name for the upcoming tape with Ross.

“That title has become so … it’s like an epidemic. So I hope by the time we finish it, it would still hold weight and substance,” Drake told MTV reporter, Sway Calloway of the term YOLO, which stands for “You Only Live Once.” “We might have to call it something different now ’cause that’s just so attached to ‘The Motto,’ said Drake.

While they mull over the title, Ricky Rozay, has been quoted as implying that his new music with Drake is good enough to not only be handed out for free but released commercially.

“It’s official, the music is most definitely official,” Ross explained to  “RapFix Live” back in November. “But, me being a boss, I’m trying to find a way that we could put that on the shelves for the world, baby. But it’s most definitely official.”

Well, we officially want to hear it! No word on the release date, but they are working. AMP will keep you in the loop.
