Damn 2million advance?

I'm not sure this is a good deal with that large advancement money he's getting and the small amount of percentages they earn off his CD's.. He's 2million in the hole already, and with the small percentages he makes off his CD's he better not flop.. They probably got his a.ss locked down for the next 5-6 years, especially if he doesn't blow up.

This could be like buying a Bently(the 2million) and agreeing to a 10year car payment(the time it's going to take to pay that s**t off from the small percentages they earn off of him)..

Looks good now, but if he flops, he's f**ked.

I wouldn't be surprised if he starts to pull a lil wayne and is featured on every other song. He'll be prostituting out his services real soon trying to get the 2mill payed off.

But at the same time, the tour money is where it's at. If he blows up, to the ability where he can headline his own tour, he'll pay that s**t back in no time. This is soley dependant on the fact that he turns into the next Jay-Z,Wayne,50cent,Eminem or Kanye..

Damn Drake got one of the most lucrative deals in music history, i dont really like him that much rite now but he has great potential, and the fact that hes getting basically all the gwap from whatever he does, excellent business move.

You might as well say he's independent.......and this contract is the reason Jay-Z couldn't sign, because Jay probably wanted his soul.....
i could see jay-z suckin the soul out of his body like shang tsung.

I'm not a playstation fan boy, I have all next gen systems, I'm just a fan of video games, and I can say honestly and without any hesitation Uncharted:Drake's Fortune is raw that your whole life.

them degrassi connects got his situated nicely
I was just thinking that. He was apart of that successful television series so I'm sure his legal connects are tight.

And PEOPLE REALIZE THIS! .. Deals don't r*pe people .. stupid a.ss artist r*pe themselves! Apparently Drake used his common sense and cashed in. I mean DUDE OWNS HIS PUBLISHING RIGHTS. Just think about this .. Michael Jackson OWNED the Beatles publishing rights and $$$. If he doesn't do anything stupid and play the game right. This dude'll be set for a hot minute. Eh props to Drake on this one.

you're comparing Drakes publishing rights to the publishing rights of the Beatles?
You do know when publishing rights come into play?
