Drake Signs Deal With Warner Bros. For October’s Very Own Imprint
Drake is set to launch his own movement and label, as his October's Very Own imprint signs deal with Warner Bros. Records.
A rumored deal first surfaced earlier this week, before a source confirmed the impending partnership with Billboard.com.
Further details are expected to follow shortly.
Drizzy will remain a solo artist with Young Money/Cash Money Records, but the Warner Bros. will allow him to expand his OVO brand with his producer Noah "40" Shebib, which up until now has included clothing and the OVO Festival.
Rick Ross signed a deal with Warner Bros. in February 2011 for his Maybach Music Group imprint, which has since released projects from Wale and Meek Mill, as well as a pair of MMG compilation LPs. Rozay, however, remains signed as a solo artist to Island Def Jam.
