Rumors have been swirling lately regarding Drake and his record label Young Money/Cash Money. Speculations included problems between Wayne and Drake, Drake not having any of his label mates on his last album, and talks of Drake starting his own label have been around for a while.
Today, Birdman sat down and discussed his relationship with Drake, and quickly squashed all of the supposed rumors. XXL reports Birdman had this to say:
Drake was a fan before a friend. He already was a Cash Money millionaire. When opportunity came, maybe we put the most on the table. That was my thinking because I just thought that this was a very talented young man. We saw a future with him so it was about him being comfortable. Cause really, Drake made the decision at the end of the day. This is where he wanted to be. The money, it was there from the start, but it was his decision. Drake’s my little brother, I love him to death and he’s family-oriented.
Do you think Birdman is just giving the company line or do you feel that everything really is okay between Drake and Young Money? Let me know!

Apple is known for its ridiculous sales with its iPhone and iPad devices, but today the company is bragging about its “Beyoncé” sales.
Beyoncé’s album released last Friday, and has officially become the fastest selling album ever on iTunes, the company announced. According to abcnews.com, the album has been downloaded 828,773 times (and counting). It also broke the U.S. first week album sales record.
Of course, the fact that the album was available exclusively through iTunes and not via any other digital music service helped push along the sales. Additionally, fans couldn't buy single songs for the usual 99-cent price; instead they were forced to buy the whole album for $15.99.
Do you feel more artists are going to take this approach, just releasing new albums out of nowhere? It may be hard to keep that many people quiet, but sure would help album sales with projects not hitting the Internet weeks in advance. 2014 should be an interesting year for music marketing, because Jay Z and B just raised the bar to a new level.

Wale has calmed down. After threatening a Complex writer via phone last Wednesday, Wale now gives his version of the account. Wale goes on to admit that if he was in front of the staff writer, he “would’ve went at him.” He discusses his exclusion from Grammy nominations and other publications’ year end lists. According to allhiphop.com, Wale claims he is angered by what perceives as a ever changing scale of how music is judged. “If there’s certain scales that you’re judging people on, let those be consistent. If it’s club records, if it’s record sales. Let it be a consistent thing.”
Near the end of the interview, Wale states that his exclusion from the list made him feel he “wasn’t” worth what these other people were worth that they’re mentioning.” Do you think Wale had the right to air out the writer like that? Or do you see fault in Complex for releasing the phone audio to the internet? Let us know below! If you missed the rant, you can listen to it here.
