The drama surrounding which label Drake wanted to sign with was deeper than a damn NFL draft. He was touted to go to several different record labels and now it looks like he went the direction with the most money
The long-anticipated wait is over as Drake has signed a record deal which places him under the wings of Young Money, Cash Money, Universal and Republic. While an official statement has yet to emerge, the rapper’s long trek of signing speculation has come to an end. (SOHH)
Aside from the announcement, online reports spread last week which said Drake would likely be signing with Universal Motown.
According to several sources on the left coast, Toronto native, and Hip-Hop’s second coming, Drake, who’s been used as tug toy between Atlantic Records, Universal Records, Interscope Records and Def Jam Records has allegedly inked a deal with Universal Records.
From my understanding, Drake was set to announce his new found Hip-Hop residence some time soon, but I guess word got out a little premature and landed directly in my lap. Now, the lil birdie who threw me this tidbit got the information straight from the label, so you can kill the LowKey’s making up ish? commentary – ASAP. And if this doesn’t serve true, well someone up at Universal Records has a lot of explaining to do. (BET)
We aren’t mad at him but we wonder if things might go sour between him and Lil Wayne if he starts gettin’ more props.
