Issa hit! After a low quality leak the week before, Drake’s manager Oliver El-Khatib decided to premiere the full, almost 6-minute long collaboration between 21 Savage, Young Thug, and Drake on OVO Sound Radio, “Episode 44”. Thug had originally previewed the song in a video on his Instagram in December 2016 as a collaboration between himself and 21, but Drake later hopped on the track for a couple verses while he and Thugger were on tour together. The final version of the song, mixed by Alex Tumay, is expected to be on 21 Savage’s Issa Album, coming soon. The song was produced by Wheezy, TM88, BricksDaMane, and Narcos. Just prior to this song being played on OVO Sound Radio, Thug was featured twice on Drake‘s More Life. You can check out the LQ version of “Issa” or stream the CDQ version via the OVOSR44 replay below.
