Drake Confirms Young Money Allegiance

Published April 4, 2011

Drake has confirmed that he will not be leaving Young Money to sign with another label. Rumors have circulated that the Canadian rapper wanted to leave the label because of disputes with label heads Lil Wayne and Birdman. On stage during a special performance on the I Am Music II tour in D.C., however, Drake publicly denied wanting to jump ship. When confronted about the rumors, Drake said his response was, "Boy, are you out your motherf*ckin' mind?' Man, I want this sh*t forever!”

Before Drake and Lil Wayne ripped into a live performance of their collab "Miss Me," the Young Money honcho showered his protégé with appreciation. During his time in prison, "it was people like Drake and people like y'all that made me feel like I wasn't even there, so I appreciate that s--t. I really do. I just wanted you to miss me while I was gone!" said Wayne in an introduction. Drake followed with, "I love you with all my heart, my brother. I love you with all my heart...It's Young Money, baby!"

Sounds like these two lovebirds are in it together for the long haul. Drake is currently working on his sophomore album while Weezy's Tha Carter IV is scheduled to drop May 16.
