Young Money star rapper Drake has decided to clean house and fire his management team.
According to reports, Drizzy indicate he has decided to part ways with managers Gee Roberson, Al Branch, Kyambo Joshua and Bryant Cortez.
The “What’s My Name” rapper also gave notice to his agents at International Creative Management including Dana Sims and Robert Gibbs, who were “panicked” yesterday about their outstanding deals with the chart topper.
“Drake just felt like there were too many hands in his pockets,” a source told the NY Post. “He was getting pulled in too many different directions.” Our source added there was conflict between the rapper’s original management team in Canada and the ones he picked up along the way. “His team from Canada is trying to wrestle back control,” a source said. “He may go back to them to streamline things.”
Additional reports suggest that Drake has also parted ways with ICM but is still represented by Hip Hop Since 1978, despite a reports claiming the contrary. A representative at WME did confirm that Drake will no longer be represented by International Creative Management in any capacity moving forward, adding that an official statement would be forthcoming. ICM also confirmed to Billboard that the firm will no longer represent Drake in domestic touring.
Since the story became public the rumor mill has been in full swing claiming that the Canadian rapper will be leaving his label Young Money for Roc Nation. A couple of tweets from both Drake and Lil Wayne have fans guessing what is going on.
Drake took to his Twitter last night, and tweeted a few eyebrow raising tweets:
Lil Wayne later send out the below tweet.
