With the rumors floating around of a new Aaliyah album executive produced by Drake and Noah “40″ Shebib, Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, jumped on Facebook to clear one thing up.
“there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.” -Rashad Haughton (regarding upcoming album release rumors)
Drake was "allegedly" chosen by Aaliyah’s estate to head the posthumous project and the cover for the first single, “Enough Said”, shows the logo of Blackground Records — a label owned by Aaliyah’s uncle, Barry Hankerson.
Kid Fury says he heard that Barry is purposefully keeping Timbaland & Missy Elliott from being in control of the new Aaliyah album. Timbaland has also said that he feels him and Missy should be apart of it.
Either way, it seems like something shady is going on. If the Haughton family isn't involved in this project, AND Tim & Missy aren't either.. what's the end game? To make money off Drake's name? Shameful. Drake is clearly infatuated with Aaliyah, but I'm wondering why would he do this project without her family's support.
Oh, and as far as biopics go, Rashad says, “No female I’ve seen can play my sister.” But with the way this album is going, they'll probably make a movie with or without her family's approval. That's the industry, folks.
