There has been so many speculations aurrounding Drizzy’s absense, however, Tunechi finally addressed the missing feature during his sit-down with Elliott Wilson Wednesday night for his special CRWN interview on Tidal. According to Weezy, the reason Drake wasn’t featured on Tha Carter V is because of …wait for it…“clearance issues.”
“He has a song that didn’t get cleared,” Wayne said when Elliott brought up Drake not being on there. “The clearances man. The clearances man.
