Less than 24 hours after reports claimed Lil Wayne had longtime friend/rap star Drake packing his bags to leave Young Money, an inside source has stepped forward and addressed the rumor.
Despite the widespread gossip, the insider promised Drizzy is still Weezy F. Baby’s sidekick.
Earlier this morning, there was a report by MediaTakeOut.com that stated Drake would be possibly moving to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. Roc Nation and Cash Money/Young Money Records were reportedly working out a $50 million deal for the rights of Drake, which most likely includes his OVO brand, music and more.
