Drake Talks Signing Ma$e to OVO Sound

Drizzy said the two are discussing "what the future holds."

Published August 12, 2013

After building another successful OVO Fest in Toronto this year, Drake, Mr. "Hold On We're Going Home," told MTV that he'd "love to work with" Ma$e. Does this mean a possible signing of the Harlem World rapper to his OVO Sound?

Well, he's being discreet about the deets. But he told MTV, "Me and Ma$e have just been talking about what he wants to do and what the future holds, what he wants to do, and anything is possible ... I would love to work with him. I told him, 'I hope tonight is not our last conversation.'"

Last year, M-A Dollar told Sway on RapFix Live that "There's only two people that I would work with ...  The only two that would make sense to me would be Kanye or Drake — he doesn't have a label, but those are the only two that I would entertain." Why Drake? "I think he's like the closest to what I believe I would've been if I didn't leave music. I like his ability to express how he feel, and not being afraid, and he could really rap."

Since then, Warner Bros. Records picked up Drake's indie label with a distribution deal.

All three, men — Drake, Ma$e and Kanye — as well as Ma$e's first label head, Diddy, performed at the 2013 OVO Fest.
