After a wild performance with Rihanna at the Brit Awards (see video) and a surprise performance with Skepta and Section Boyz at London’s Village Underground, Drake announced via Instagram that his is signing to grime label Boy Better Know. If you don’t know BBK, it was founded by two of grime’s new generation biggest names, Skepta and JME.
Drake is currently signed to Young Money/Cash Money but apparently they are not doing so well financially. Lil’Wayne is a co-owner of YM/CM and has reportedly not been paid the money owed to him. Rumors say that Drake dropped his latest album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late just to get out of his contract with YM/CM. So it makes a lot of sense that he would jump ship and head over to BBK. He already has the tattoo so why the f#ck not!
