Though Drake has downplayed any rift between himself and YMCMB numerous times, rumors of a fallout continues to circulate.
Birdman was recently asked about the rumors, during an interview on Shade 45, saying they couldn’t be more false.
“Drake was a fan before a friend [with Cash Money] and maybe we put the most on the table, but that was thing, I thought he was a very talented young man, so we saw a future with him and we wanted him to be comfortable,” Birdman explains. “At the end of the day, Drake made the decision of where he wanted to be.
“Drake is my little brother, I love him man and don’t believe everything you hear,” he continued. “Drake down with the team for life. I got nothing but love for Drake and the whole OVO camp.”
Later, he talks about Drake branding out beyond music, which he has encouraged from day one. “We support their ’emerge’ and [Drake has] the Nike, Toronto Raptors deals, it’s about you developing and becoming bigger and if you have someone not allowing you to be bigger that’s a problem; and we don’t operate like that,” Birdman said.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/124863691″ params=”color=cb0000&auto_play=false&show_artwork=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
