Drake's 'Best In The World Pack' Not Listed As A Young Money/Cash Money Release

Are "Omertà" and "Money in the Grave" the first lead records under the OVO leader's new company?

(AllHipHop News) There has been a lot of speculation about Drake's current label situation. Observers questioned if he completed his albums requirement for YMCMB with 2018's Scorpion or if Lil Wayne's official split with Cash Money Records affected Drizzy.

Billboard reports Drake's latest music effort, The Best In The World Pack, was not released under Wayne's Young Money Entertainment nor Cash Money. The credits for the two songs read, "2019 Frozen Moments, LLC, under exclusive licensing to Republic Records, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc."

Legal documents involved in Wayne's now-resolved $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money revealed a “2009 Drake Letter Amendment” divided revenue from Drake’s solo recordings between Cash Money and Young Money. In a 2019 interview with Forbes, Cash Money co-founder Bryan "Birdman" Williams declared the he and his brother, Ronald "Slim" Williams, will always have a commercial connection to Drake.

"All I can tell you is we're forever in business with Drake. We’ve got a great friendship, a great partnership, much respect on both sides of the table. And honestly, I feel like we’re forever in business with Drake. F*ck what you heard and what you might hear. It is what it is. We’re in business with Drake," said Birdman.
