Drake Splits With Popular Management Company Hip Hop Since 1978


(AllHipHop News) Toronto, Canada based rapper Drake has split with his American management team Hip Hop Since 1978, and has hired the William Morris Agency to represent him.

The rap star, who is still signed to Cash Money Records, also fired his booking agents International Creative Management due to a difference in opinion on various business matters.

A source told the New York Post that Drake cleaned house for a number of reasons.

“Drake just felt like there were too many hands in his pockets,” the source told The Post. “He was getting pulled in too many different directions.”

Hip Hop Since 1978 is a management company comprised of some of the industry’s top managers and employs veterans like Al Branch, Cortez Bryant, Kinky “B” Ellerbee and Kyambo “Hip Hop” Joshua and Gee Roberson.

The company manages a number of superstar rappers, including Young Jeezy, T.I., Lil Wayne, Just Blaze and Kanye West.

According to rumors, Drake and Kanye West are at odds, which could explain the Canadian rapper’s departure from the Hip Hop Since 1978 camp, although neither artist has substantiated the reports.
