Drake’s Manager Blasts Jay Z “Publicity Stunt”

Published: Thursday 3rd Sep 2015 by David

Is Jay Z‘s Tidal telling tall tales about Drake‘s relationship with Apple?

Let the latter’s manager tell it and the answer is…yes.

Contrary to a report claiming they would, Apple did not stop their partner Drake from performing at a event launched by the rapper Lil Wayne in association with their rival Tidal.

Yes, after reports claimed the company had threaten to use legal force to prevent Drake from supporting Wayne’s live show Apple has joined forces with the ‘Find Your Love’ rapper’s manager to rubbish these claims.

Future the Prince (the manager) told BuzzFeed:

The decision to not have Drake participate in the Tidal steam has nothing to do with Apple or Drake’s deal Point blank, 100%. I made a business decision. Apple doesn’t have the power to stop us from being part of a live stream. The only people that have the power to do that are Cash Money and Universal, and they’re our partners.

I don’t understand. If you’re going to say something about the situation publicly, you should tell the truth. They saw the opportunity to take a situation and spin it in their favor as a publicity stunt.

So, why did Drake opt out of the stream.

Prince explained:

We wanted to make sure the stream represented us in the right way, and we didn’t have much insight into what they were doing. Aesthetics and quality are important to us and we didn’t have any control over that or time to investigate it. We were just there to participate in the benefit.

Jay Z is yet to respond.

Your thoughts?

    Wait!!!!!!I hope nothing happens to Drake because he’s handsome and he likes Serena Williams. They make a cute couple. I hate those fake people.

    I can’t believe anyone is fighting for Drake.. I’d love to b real but most his fans are half deaf and won’t understand where I’m coming from.. drake is better of becoming a radio host.. Like For real, he’s that bad!

    LOL. What kind of excuse is that? “Because you didn’t have insight into how they were going to portray drake”. It’s a live stream, what could they do that Drake didn’t do himself.
