Young Money star Drake has once again addressed rumors and speculation claiming there is a beef brewing between him and his boss, Lil Wayne, and denied plans to leave the label.
Vouching his loyalty to Weezy, Drake told fans at a Hartford, Connecticut concert Young Money would always be his squad.
“I’ll tell you, if you ever wake up in the morning and you think Young Money ain’t my team, you out of your motherf*cking mind,” Drake told a crowd of screaming fans. “I’ll tell you that right now. My brother Lil Wayne is all the way in Australia right now but I got my camera on in the back and I just want to let him know how much love me and Hartford got for him, so if you got love for Lil Wayne, make some noise.” (YouTube)
Yesterday, rumors emerged online suggesting Drizzy was looking for a new label home.
After months of speculation, Drake is apparently making his move to leave his label, Young Entertainment. He wants out and he’ll probably get out soon. The decision to leave YM can’t be an easy one to make. Lil Wayne, who founded Young Money, may not be very happy about Drizzy’s choice. Can you blame him? The label’s made some serious cash off D’s hit albums, most recently the blockbuster Take Care. Weezy’s making his feelings known. (Celebs Gather)
In October, the Canadian-bred emcee also killed Young Money departure gossip.
“I never really know where those rumors stem from,” Drake said in an interview. “I’m really happy at Young Money; I really don’t want to go anywhere. Me and Wayne have a great relationship…At the end of the day, [Lil Wayne], that’s my boss. I’m his soldier. I’m cool with that. I’m good with that — That’s the role I want to play. He put me here.” (MTV)
Earlier this year, gossip hit the Internet suggesting Drizzy was leaving YM for Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation label.
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)
