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." (Media Take Out)

Sandy Koufax ... Albert Einstein ... Moses ... and now Drake?!? D*mn right. "[Would I get criticized for messing up the Canadian national anthem in public?] Yes. [laughs] Because I'm a patriotic Canadian," Drake told paparazzi. "Yeah. [Who's a better Jew, me or TMZ creator Harvey Levin?] I don't know. I'm one of the best Jews to ever do it. Ever in life. [laughs]" (TMZ)
