Wiz Khalifa and Drake

Wiz Khalifa Addresses Drake’s Absence on ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ Remix

What happened to Drake? Wiz Khalifa is coming clean on why the Young Money rapper wasn’t featured on the remix to his single “Work Hard, Play Hard,” and the reason is quite simple: Drake didn’t submit his verse.

Originally Drizzy was set to appear on the remix with Lil Wayne.

“I went big for the remix. I went different than people usually expect from me,” the Pittsburgh MC told Cosmic Kev at the time.

In a recent interview with Montreality, Wiz explains that Drake never recorded his verse so they had to release the remix without him.

“He was supposed to do his verse and he ain’t do it so we had to put it out,” said Wiz, whose album O.N.I.F.C. drops December 4. “But it ain’t no love lost. People get that done all the time in the industry, but yeah, I got boofed.”

Young Jeezy filled in for Drake on the final version.
