The estate of B.B. King is ecstatic about Lil Wayne and Drake’s “BB King Freestyle.”
Chairman of the estate, Vassal Benford, spoke on behalf of the family saying the song is “exactly what we wanted,” as the estate is currently working on a B.B. King biopic and wants to produce a Hip-Hop album to go along with the biopic.
The estate wants to partner with Universal Music Group to create an album that will partner King’s music with A-list musicians producing original and sampled music.
Benford invited Drake and Lil Wayne to be a part of the project and he’s eyeing DJ Khaled to produce the album. There are also plans for songs in the EDM, Country, and Blues genres to be included.
