Is Canadian rapper Drake too soft for Lil Wayne and the Young Money record label? MediaTakeOut claims that the “Best I Ever Had” rapper is ready to ditch the squad that made him famous to join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.
MediaTakeOut hasn’t had the best track record when it’s come to reporting on Drake’s relationship with Lil Wayne. Just a couple of months ago, the site claimed Lil Wayne punched Drake in the face during a show in Vegas. That rumor turned out to be false, just like this one. A rep for Drake tells RumorFix, “Drake is signed to Aspire / Young Money / Cash Money and has NO plans to leave at this time.”
MediaTakeOut claims: According to a member of YOUNG MONEY, Drake would like to LEAVE the label . . . and join his friend J Cole over at Jay Z’s ROC NATION label. The insider explained, “Drake likes making music with [Lil Wayne] and the rest, but he’s a different dude. There’s a lot of hood [ish] that goes down at Young Money, and Drake’s not a hood [dude], so he wants to be away from that.”MediaTakeOut.com’s insider goes on, “Drake’s mother is also worried . . . She doesn’t want him around gangs or drugs.” And it gets better. MediaTakeOut.com learned that JAY Z is pulling strings – to try and [buy] Drake’s contract from Bryan “Baby” Williams – Cash Money’s CEO. The insider explained, “[Jay] is playing hardball, he wants Drake and he’s not trying to pay too much for him. He’s moving in slowly. Right now he’s working [behind the scenes] on Drake’s tour. Under Drake’s current deal [with Cash Money], Drake owes them records, but not tours.”
Drake proclaimed his loyalty to Young Money and Cash Money on twitter.
