So Drake was momentarily out of Young Money after an alleged argument and shoving match between him and Lil’ Wayne. According to the rumor mill, like most celebrity fallouts, Drake got heated when discussing the possibility of restructuring his contract and while also inquiring about royalties. He threw some words around to which Lil’ Wayne, the badass he is, basically told him to get the fuck out. Days later the internet is a buzz with media citing that, oh, he was just kidding! Drake, you so funny. From interviews given by both Drake and Lil’ Wayne the two have cited nothing but the utmost appreciation for one another and are in fact still a part of the Young Money machine.
While this sounds like a sweet tale of bromance, the cynic in me can’t help but wonder how big a role money played in this smoothing over. I imagine Drake throwing a bitch fit over royalties, starting to get an inflated sense of self (when most people know you’re from Canada and played the handicapped kid on Degrassi) and popping off at the mouth. Fast forward a day and everyone realizing that, holy shit, we make a lot of money to do this, are you fucking stupid? Smile for the cameras boys.
