Drake is making a statement by saying he is not on Young Money Records:
“I’m not signed to Young Money but definitely Young Money is a family to me. I’m definitely YM affiliated, you know? I have the utmost love for everybody over there, the utmost respect.
Mack Maine and Jae Millz, those are like brothers to me, you know? Nicki [Minaj]. Nicki is Nicki. I love her.
And now that I’m in this position I’m just trying to get everything all the way straight. In about a week or two it’ll all…it’ll be out there. You know the press release will be out there. It’ll be official.
These situations take time, you know? To get signed overnight, I’m so glad that didn’t happen to me two years ago ’cause I needed those two years to really build on everything—my talent, my image, my life, everything.
I needed two more years of being unsigned and sort of figuring things out to really know what I wanted to do”.
Build a huge buzz then have the record companies eating out of your hand. Smart move Drake.
