There's a big feature in Forbes on Cash Money boss Birdman.
Buried toward the bottom, there's this paragraph about Drake, who had been signed to Birdman through Lil Wayne's Young Money label.
Meanwhile, Drake’s status remains something of a mystery. On his 2018 album Scorpion, he declared himself “out of the deal” after fulfilling his contractual obligations; Cash Money’s spokesperson says he’s scheduled for one more. Neither Drake nor Universal would comment on his status. The Williams brothers say they are “forever in business” with Drake, but won’t get more specific.
Of course, Lil Wayne and Young Money are no longer attached to Cash Money, after a lengthy lawsuit and a settlement. Since Wayne got his wish for freedom from Baby, everybody's been wondering what that means for Young Money's other two stars, Drake and Nicki Minaj.
It looks like Birdman may still have his talons in at least the bigger of the two stars. Which can't be good for Drake.
