Everyone knows Drake is prone to strong emotional reactions, and his reaction to the rumors that he was leaving Young Money was no different. Though the rapper has proclaimed in many of his songs his loyalty to the label, and the entire Young Money camp, rumors have continued to swirl and many point to management changes as signs that the artist is secretly making moves to leave the label he has blown up on. Drakes rep attempted to calm the rumor mill by releasing this statement:
“WME now represents Drake in all areas worldwide,” a rep said in a statement. “Contrary to previous reports, there has been no change with Drake’s management team, and he continues to be managed by Gee Roberson, Al Branch, Kyambo Joshua and Bryant Cortez of Hip Hop Since 1978.” (AHH)
When that didn’t keep the rumors silent, Drake himself addressed the situation to a group of fans at a concert, and had strong words for those who think he may be leaving Young Money:
“If you ever wake up in the morning and you think Young Money ain’t my team, you out of your motherf–ing mind,” he said. “I’mma tell you that right now!”(MTV)
So, hopefully, coming from Drake himself, the rumors can finally be settled, and for now, we can assume Drake has no plans of leaving Young Money.
