Coming for Cash Money
It seems like everything prior to Drake’s signing with Cash Money is all jumbled up into a “Degrassi” phase, everything else is forgotten. Case in point: Did you know that before Drake was signed to Cash Money, he was signed to Aspire Music Group? I’ll tell you who most definitely knew: Aspire Music Group.
The American record label was founded in 2008, signed Drake in 2008, and since 2008 … has signed no one else. Money-making Drizzy is the only artist on the label’s roster. (Yea, it’s suspect to us, too.)
The label is pretty low-key (and only has one artist). It’s no sweat if you didn’t know about Aspire; you’re about to learn about it now because the label is suing Cash Money over back royalty payments for Drake’s first six albums.
