Drake Eyes Young Money Departure? Nicki Minaj Bares All

Published: Tuesday 30th Jul 2013 by David

Despite many a hit driven effort, very few Rap collectives can say they enjoyed a run as a fruit as Young Money‘s.

Being in the unique position of seeing all its acts (save for Shanell) reach household name status, the crew now find themselves monopolising Hip Hop and outperforming their Pop counterparts, (see Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake).

Alas, the latest chapter to this success story has seen fans read between the lines to find that the once united group may be bidding adieu to the aforementioned Drake, upon the veiling of these court documents.

More recently, it’s the performer’s absence from the crew’s forthcoming album that’s sparked fresh talk of his departure…forcing Minaj to bare all on the supposed beef.

Her words below…

After opting to take his ‘OVO’ brand to Atlantic and not Universal where Young Money is housed, this week saw Drake’s recent moves addressed by Nicki in an interview with Hot 97’s ‘Funkmaster Flex’.

She revealed:

“I just feel like people’s perception of their reality is their perception of their reality. Sometimes people make moves based on their perception of what reality is and I know that sounds like a riddle, but maybe one day you’ll be able to unravel that one.”

“All I can say is he’s so talented. Sometimes when you’re really intelligent and you’re really talented, you also think a lot and sometimes your mind is racing with thoughts. It is what it is. People go through their own emotions and you gotta respect it and keep it moving. We all love the team.”

“All I can say is this, Lil Wayne is everything to me. I can’t speak for anyone else.What Young Money and Cash Money did for Nicki Minaj I could never repay them for so I am forever indebted to them.” 

We all love Wayne and that’s what’s gonna hold us together.

Drake is my baby ’cause that’s how we were when we came in so whenever I think of him I’ll be like, ‘Oh, that’s my baby.’ Whatever is going on now, obviously we’re all very busy, and you know, shit happens.”

“It gets a little hard to have a real connection when people are on different sides of the world and working on different things. You never know who people got in their ear or what they feeling. Maybe they felt wronged in some way. I don’t know, but I just know that Drake is my baby and Wayne is my everything.”

Then, in addressing the alleged subliminal remarks he’s thrown their way, she explained:

“I’ve never taken that personal. When you are in a place where Drake is, which is everybody is asking him for a hook or a feature, it is what it is. He’s speaking the truth. Whether he’s taking that as a compliment or not, I don’t know. He’s speaking the truth and I think he’s speaking about every damn body. I’m not exempt from that and neither is anyone else. If you’ve been asking him for a verse or a song or done a verse or a song with him, then maybe you are included. I don’t know, but he’s not lying.”

And honestly Drake should leave them and I hate the wayne nicki just praises wayne like he’s some goddess. He uses the same recycled lyrics. And didn’t even become hot until like 08-09 imo.

  22. Matthew July 30, 2013

    i kinda suspect tis when he didnt feature on that floppana rich gang album he sould leave this label wayne aint te same anymore he need his cough mixture

    • FAF July 30, 2013

      he’s on it, though ;/

  23. Mark111 July 30, 2013

    This was bound to happen, no one stay together forever. From NWA, to Death Row, to G-Unit, to RocAfella, people will go their separate ways. Plus if anyone been paying attention to me (lil ol me,lol) I said that Young Money artist aren’t getting s***. You got Universal getting half, Cash Money, Young Money, their promo and coast and then they may get some. It was bad business from the start, too many cuts in those checks and Drake now sees that. Looking at Macklemore being inde, Drake could’ve been that and ALL that money would came back to him. People say Wayne put Drake on, but we all know that Drake wrote for Wayne and pretty much jacked his sound, cause rewind to 99 to 2005, Wayne was not rapping like that. Ask Juvenile and Mini Fresh about how Baby never paid them. In today’s time, you don’t need a label, artist should go inde, Ciara should too, but most can’t cause they rely on the machine, as in writers and producers, not everyone have it.

  24. FAF July 30, 2013

    Ppl ben saying this the last 3 yrs. Drake is not leaving he has something called a contract ! Damn yall some f****** haters. . . Get a life & read a book & study the law ! F*** every day is some s*** about Nicki, Ciara & b****** who actually write they own s*** .FOH

    • FAF July 30, 2013


    • Mark111 July 30, 2013

      But he can start his own label with another label and sign his artist to it. I don’t get why he signed with them, might as well signed with Bad Boy if he wanted to get f*****.

      • FAF July 30, 2013

        But who said he’s getting f*****? Thats Tyga & n***** who didnt read their contract drake has a grammy and a #1 single, he’s doing well for himself its not like he’s signed to Laface & not making money . Ppl want him to leave bc they don’t like Wayne & Nicki PERSONALLY . Drake has nothing to do w/ either of them.. he does his own thing

      • Mark111 July 30, 2013

        FAF, I’m sorry, but we live in a 360 age. Drake isn’t making near as much as he should. Take your check and have everyone take some out of it, you will feel some kind of way. No way in hell he’s getting paid as he should, it just doesn’t add up. He’s not a J.Cole or Big Sean that rely on Jay and Kanye, Drake can hold his own. This isn’t new, ask Dre, Snoop and Game, the crew label never last. 50 Cent was the last rapper that wasn’t in a 360. These new rappers are getting paid pennies when they could be making dollars.

  25. DIGGER BEY July 30, 2013

    Hmm….I think the student has become the teacher in sales and popularity! Big egos probably played a part too. Drake is a Boss! So why would he want someone like Wayne telling him to do this and that. And Nicki acts like Wayne is Jesus! #GURL BYEEEEEE

  26. Your fave is a FLOP July 30, 2013

    IF Drake leaves, YM is DONE. Nicki better leave too cause she making her own money (Perfume, Pepsi, Movies, Mac, OPI). And tbh Drake, Nicki, and Wayne are the only artist in YM that’s actually doing it. Tyga has the potential but nobody trying to put him on.

  27. channel_ROMAN July 30, 2013

    LOL @ FAF
    “wheres beyonce on the charts today ? has she even done 57k this yr? ” … You know I’m coming fo dot ass right?

    4 sold about 100K in 2013.

  28. channel_ROMAN July 30, 2013

    After 2 years of release 4 is at 143 on itunes albums. Ciara is at 3 weeks at at number 123. In a next month it’ll fall out the top 200 unless she releases that Britney Spears reject pop single.

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) July 30, 2013

      4 is on its 3rd re-release though.

  29. B**** IF YOU AINT SHITTIN THEN GET OF DA POT August 8, 2013

    I kinda hope Nicki leaves, she and Drake are the only relevant ones in Young Money. She’s doing it big with the Clothing Line, 2nd Fragrance and the Movie. Please Onika. Leave the sinking ship 🙁
