Lil Wayne Rappers Lil Wayne and Drake are taking Jay-Z and Kanye West's lead and teaming up for a collaborative album of their own.

The Lollipop hit-maker has been instrumental in helping his protégé Drake achieve solo success and he's now pressing ahead with plans for a full project together.

Wayne's Cash Money Records boss Bryan 'Birdman' Williams tells, "Wayne and I recently talked about (the Wayne/Drake project). That's definitely going to get done."

Drake first revealed his intentions to launch a joint disc with Wayne in January.

Jay-Z and West's Watch The Throne release is expected to hit the top of the U.S. album charts this week, and become one of the biggest debuts of the year.
