A source with knowledge drops this: Well I used to stay in Toronto now I’m in NY. Drake and writer Nickelus F. from Virginia used to be seen everywhere in TO together about 6 years ago. He used to have a white Range Rover. He used to fly Nick out and bring him to Raptor games and s**t. If you search hard enough you can find all of these pics.

Drake does have money. He lives in one of the most expensive places in North America. His mother is wealthy. Not rich but wealthy. He was on the show from he was 12/13 years of age. He was getting roughly 90 to 125 k per season for the past 10 years. Realistically when you don’t have any bills or expenses that’s whole lot of money which is why he was able to pay his way into the game. He ran out of money early last year and received money from some investors in Houston, TX. He was in TX a lot because he had a girl out there which is how he met Wayne. Wayne heard his CD ina barber shop in H Town.

Nickelus F. is the one who got Malice on that song with Drake. Drake used to throw a lot of money around to get into the industry which is why him and Trey Songz is cool. When Drake was getting more known in TO he wanted more radio friendly less edgy lyrics so he switched up writers because Canadian audience is really conservative. I know cats from Illusive Media who worked with Nickelus F. and they showed me that Drake paid for many of his videos and things of that nature for the songs he was writing. Also, Nickelus F. hooked him up with many connects in the game especially when he was in talks with Def Jam.

From what I heard from VERY reliable sources in the Drake camp and from NY is that this IQ cat from Brooklyn was negotiating selling songs to Drake. Drake would buy hooks or entire songs (concepts and verses). IQ is Rakim’s protege, his pen game is mean. IQ helped him on a couple of records but Drake got pissed when he wouldn’t give him his personal records that he was gonna use for his own career.

Numerous guys in Toronto have contributed to Drake’s music. Richie Sosa being one of them, not a big collaborator but he did help Drake.

This information wasn’t too confidential because the studio sessions had many people present so everybody saw Drake and 40 asking for the rhymes. Another thing you can ask people is if they’ve EVER seen Drake actually write/think/freestyle/type/ or just overall create a song on the spot. NEVER.

There are possibly others that I don’t know of so I can’t give out any more info. I will leave you with this, Drake is not new, he’s actually paid top dollar for meeting with the biggest industry execs and he was shut down.

@immortal_flamez

if i had drake's money i would pay "top dollar for meeting with the biggest industry execs" as well... you obviously have some unresolved issues...

and to be perfectly honest, all ur allegations still don't take away from the fact that DRAKE IS A GREAT ARTIST!! even if he "would buy hooks or entire songs (concepts and verses)," there was someone there selling it...

bottom line, money makes the world go 'round... go get you some and stop worrying about other people...

Shayla said...

Wow, I like Drake, love him actually...but what's the difference. You can't tell me this is a big surprise. I'm pretty sure I've never heard Drake profess to being a poor black man in America. Who really cares, personally I'm not sure I believe it, but it doesn't really matter, almost all rappers these days are created, R&B artists for that matter too. Very rarely do you find someone who worked hard, looks normal, and gets there without a little help. I work in corporate America with lots of people with money, if I could buy my way to Drake's spot, guess what...I'D WANT THAT ISH FOREVER! Quit hatin and enjoy good music however we got it. Hip Hop is about all of us, from the bottom to the top. Plus, what's with you putting this on the thread for Travis Barker, as stated before...that's good ish.

Patrick said...

Still...only in the Hip Hop and Urban community can a person who may not have been born into poverty be looked down upon.

Akin said...

Back to the topic....


Travis killed this. Remember when he was in Blink 182 and we was clownin any one listening to him. Now he just replaced the original version on my iTunes. Sick

Bagadime said...

This mix is HARD... definitely a must for the tour

DorothyMarie said...

NOTHING CAN EVER OUTSHINE FOREVER!!!
BUT this remix did come pretty DAMN close LOL

The Original track it AMAZING, and the Remix gave it a little EXTRA twist...

And as for all these wild ass allegations being thrown around on DRAKES blog site... HMMM I smell a HATER, if you don't like him, his style or his music DON'T LISTEN, don't look, and DON'T COME AROUND HIS BLOG.

You want what you can't have, damn dude that's too damn bad... get a life,

PS you stole your ENTIRE comment from the internet, you STOLE if what you say about Drake is true (which i HIGHLY doubt) at least he PAID for what he wanted which in all senses of the term makes them his!! you on the other hand can't even afford an Original thought....

Zomik the Ransom Hero said...

Moriah said...

I dont know why that nigga is hating he need to be put in place ur one those people that steady hating on his blogs and shit but in the comfrot of your home you jaming his shit ur the type of people Drake raps about, to add on of how stupid you are, Drake isnt trying to hide is Degrassi pass, and futhermore you never hear Drake claming broke and who says a rapper must be poor or come with rhymes up on the spot thats just prejudice. Anyways aside from this ignornant bitch the remix is auhhhhmazzing and Travis did a great job maybe this will the breakthrough between rock and rap and they'll play this on rock and rap and r&b stations radio stations. :)
