A few hours ago, New York rapper Fabolous talked about missing last night’s Scorpion Miami listening party.

Since dropping Friday, Drake’s new album has crushed huge streaming records on Apple Music and Spotify.

On the must-hear LP, Drake hints at his contractual obligation with Cash Money possibly ending.

Birdman was quoted in 2015 telling Angie Martinez that Drake and Nicki Minaj would remain with Cash Money even if Lil Wayne parted ways with the label, but at this point it seems like the Toronto rapper has found a way out. While the exact details aren’t known, the last song on the A-side of Scorpion (“Is There More”) is perfectly clear with the lyrics “Soon as this album drop I’m out of the deal”. (SOHH)
