Bun B vs. Drake

One of the oldest in the game and one of the youngest. One of the southest and one of the northest. Bun B & Drake: the King of the Underground and the King of Canadian Teen Television Dramas.

The two first got together on wax over So Far Gone's Boi-1da banger "Uptown". Of course, Bun happened to only be tagging along as the third wheel of the 87th Drake/Wayne collabo. After that, Daddy must've recognized that his children were playing nice together because Birdman reprised their collective combo in the song "Mo Milli" (produced by ... Boi-1da) for his Pricele$$ album.  Bun B took the initiative from there and kept Drake on two additional (guess who ...) Boi-1da beats for his new Trill O.G. album. I guess that double take made up for Drake only letting Bun have a half-bar ad-lib on "Miss Me" instead of fully recreating the Drake/Bun/Wayne triumvirate. And to finish it all off in historic style, Drake's most recently made an appearance on Pimp C's posthumous album, The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones, on the Bun-approved UGK joint "What Up". I don't exactly know why the two hit it off as great as they did, but obviously the music is there to prove there's a legitimate respect between the two hip hop giants.
