Drake Calls Y.O.L.O. an “Epidemic,” Might Rename His Rick Ross Collaboration

Zac Efron (pictured above) has famously inked the motto to his wrist, and kids are adopting it as a clever excuse. Your mom probably knows what it means. And Drake can hardly believe it. “It’s like an epidemic,” he said, suggesting that “Y.O.L.O.” — the acronym he uses for “You Only Live Once” on the hook of “The Motto” — has taken on a life of its own. And he doesn’t seem upset that you all like it so much, but he has begun to wonder if he can still use it as a title for that collaborative mixtape he and Rick Ross have been teasing for some time now.

“The title has become so… it’s like an epidemic,” Drake told MTV’s Sway Calloway. “I hope by the time we finish it, it would still hold weight and substance. We might have to call it something different.”

But worry not: as Y.O.L.O. or otherwise, the tape will probably still happen. “A Drake and Ross project I think would be amazing,” he says, adding that, “That’s something even I would want to listen to.”


In the meantime, Drake, Ross and Lil Wayne makes three guest verses on “Pop That,” the sure-to-be-huge first single off French Montana’s forthcoming Excuse My French. There is no explicit mention of here, but it’s safe to assume that, when Drake and Ross are involved, it’s always assumed.
