Drake Declares Loyalty to Young Money After Split Rumors

Drake

The rumors can finally be put to rest. Drake has confirmed that he’s still signed to Young Money and doesn’t plan on going anywhere.

During an after-party for NBA All-Star Weekend, the Canadian MC got on the mic to wish his YMCMB boss Birdman a happy birthday and shut down reports that he’s jumping ship for Roc Nation.

“I just want to say as I’m standing in front of you tonight, proud as a man that’s about to be with Young Money-Cash Money for another I don’t know how many albums,” he said, adding, “YMCMB for life.”

Drake’s third album for Young Money, Nothing Was the Same, is due this summer featuring the single “Started From the Bottom.”

Watch him pledge his allegiance to his crew in the Derick G. video below.

    THAT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PLEDGE TO A RECORD LABEL NOW HE WANTS OUT ON THE LOW!

    Now he’s successful, makes enough money to start his own label (which would ten-fold his earnings)… and now you’re STUCK w/ Lil Wayne taking a big bite out of every record you sell.

    IDIOTS!

    Nicki Minaj is in this same boat…

    @J. V., kanye and Rihanna still under jay z signed to roc nation so how is it any different with nicki and drake staying loyal to the man that helped put them on?? Wayne put on drake and nicki at the height of his popularity and exposed them to the world. U don’t bite the hand that feeds u. Drake and nicki loyal something that people lack now adays.

    @Mrunhateable, difference is, jay z acknowledges their success and is proud. Have you not seen nickis re-up DVD? All Wayne did was cry like a little bitch because he thinks drake and nicki have become bigger than him.

    @J. V., actually Nicki Minaj has her own label now(yet to have a title) and she has 2 new artists that are featured on The Re-Up. also Tyga has his own label Last Kings and is still with YMCMB

    @J. V., RIGHT. Nicki Minaj should break off from the label and become her own thing again. YMCMB ruined her image. I liked her better as an underground artist when she actually made MUSIC. Hope we can see that hungry Nicki Minaj on her next album and not this I’M THE BITCH shit she’s been doing. Her music is starting to just be her bragging.

    @weq, the snoop and dre situation is completely different to this! Death row was a dangerous zone! Have you not watched any of the documentaries? People were abused by suge knight and his entourage.

    If he was to leave he wouldn’t even sign under anyone, he would just start his own label.

    I think it’s pretty admirable how loyal he is to that label. Because let’s be honest, drake is young money. Without drake that label wouldn’t be shit. Nicki, Tyga and Wayne are having issues selling. Drake is the money maker on that label and IMO that label is holding his growth back. This guy is one of the biggest artist in the world and has more talent than any other rapper today. Drugged out Wayne only making him look bad.

    @Meme, last time I checked Wayne pulled 960k with his last album Carter 4 and Nicki sold more first wk albums & albums than all the dudes in 2012 so they good in fact I think she only one that went gold by December or was certified platnium at least so even her so called low sales was better than all the hiphop albums

    Drake had a buzz way before he signed that contract with cash money. He has his own label now (OVO) therefore he could leave and be his own boss. Like pusha said.. You’re signed to a dude who is signed to many other dudes. If he left, it wouldn’t show any disloyalty because he would focus on his own label. If he signed to another label like Roc Nation, MMG or Good Music, then that would indeed show disloyalty

    @Xxx, pusha needs to worry about his damn self because n!ggas in his “home town” don’t f*ck with nor respect him. Shame. He running Around claiming Norfolk and don’t be nowhere in Norfolk. He might breeze thru but its brief.

    Pusha has zero room to speak on another man’s situation with his fraudulent ass rhymes.

    Ain’t Pusha signed to Kanye? Who’s signed to Def Jam? Oh. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    ‘YM I remain that forever’ People need to accept the fact that Drake ain’t going anywhere. Who came up with these stupid rumours anyway? And why do people want Drake to leave YM so bad? It’s his choice and his life, not yours.
    How do we know that he will be better on another label? For goodness sakes, he seems to be doing well on YM so…

    Sheed Reply:

    @Jade, idk who made the rumors but he is making less than he shud b…drake is one of the best true artist of today and doesnt need ymcnbumblbee anymore…he can support him self and make wwwaayy more money…plus i dont thnk ymcmb can really scultp him to where he shud be because drake is held back making commercial hiphop songs that aint gud..tht boys a soft guy who shines thru singing…he was better off under kanye in good music…

    I don’t see how anyone in YM is holding drake back? Take care was all Drake with a few features here and There. He told the story he wanted to tell and even helped get Kendrick Lamars name out there. You guys talking about drake being held back but what about big Sean? Where he at? Drake is good where he’s at
    He has diversity and sincerity. He has fun and a point.

    Drake isn’t even signed to young money. He has to contractual obligations with them. I think he is singed directly to his management which has changed but it is under Sylvia Rhone who is president of Universal Motown. The YM logo is out of respect. But he does own all of his music if he was to leave.
