Drake Gets Paid A Lot To Replace Kanye

Posted By on May 9, 2011

     Young Money's own Drake recently got paid a ton to perform over the weekend at a former television network executive's private party. As a replacement for Kanye West, Drake made around $250,000 for the one-night show.

Former NBC honcho Jeff Zucker threw a lavish bar mitzvah at the Four Seasons last night (May 7) for his son Andrew, with no expense spared — except Kanye West's staggering $1 million demand to perform. The bash, costing well over an estimated $250,000, included a performance by rapper Drake, "tremendous" food and fine wines — and customized Converse sneakers handed out as gifts to guests. "They went all out for this bash," a source told Page Six of the splashy shindig at the restaurant, which is a haunt of the city's power crowd. (New York Post)
