Drake – Forever ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem [Video]
Toronto, ON – Check out the Boi-1da produced “Forever” by Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem. This is the first single from the soundtrack to LeBron James’s More Than a Game documentary. The track was originally used by Kardinal Offishall featuring Rock City in early 2008 as “Bring It Back”. Kardi didn’t use the song for his album and it was later re-sold to Drake which was released in late-2008 as “I Want This Forever” featuring Lil Wayne and Nut Da Kidd.
In an interview, Kardinal stated that his version was a leaked demo, and was supposed to appear on his album, Not 4 Sale, as well as a soundtrack. He also revealed that Drake wrote the hook, “He had written it and then we were supposed to get either Rock City or Akon or T-Pain to sing it. The 2009 version of “Forever” was labelled by Jay-Z as the best posse cut of the year.
