Drake and Baka

Drake has just added a new artist to the OVO roster: longtime friend Baka.

Drizzy announced the new signee at a recent event, saying: “When [he] got out of jail, there’s a lot of different paths that he could have took. He decided to focus on music.”

From there, he handed Baka a pen for him to sign the contract right then and there. “It’s an honor and a pleasure,” he added. “I just want to give this pen to my brother. I love you, G. Trust me. You’ve been holding it down for a long time.”

Drizzy has referenced Baka several times in the past. On “Know Yourself,” he rapped: “I might declare it a holiday as soon as Baka get back on the road.” He also mentioned him on “No Long Talk” and OB O’Brien’s “Schemin’ Up.”

Welcome the newest member of OVO.
