Drake considering Cash Money split?

Fresh rumours are circulating that Drake is willing to leave Cash Money Records after Lil Wayne filed a $51 million lawsuit against the label.

Drake is reportedly considering parting ways with Cash Money Records.

The 28-year-old rapper shocked the world when he released 17-song album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late to iTunes with no prior announcement on February 12.

Drake’s longtime friend and collaborator Lil Wayne hit Cash Money Records with a $51 million lawsuit last month and rumours are rife this legal affair inspired his surprise LP release.

“Drake is probably frustrated,” a source told Page Six of his alleged perspective on his relationship with Cash Money. “He’s gotten to a point where he wants more.”

It’s believed Drake signed a standard five-record deal with Cash Money. If You’re Reading This it’s Too Late would be the fourth LP he’s released with the label so far, so after his next album he’d be able to end his contract. In 2014 Drake announced the name of his new record would be Views from the 6, which is leaving some people wondering whether he was making a statement with the release of If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

Lil Wayne, 32, has been publicly feuding with Cash Money Records, a label he signed to at the tender age of nine years old, for quite some time now.

Apparently Wayne wants millions from Birdman’s enterprise because he’s livid about his Tha Carter V album release delay.

In December the Grammy-winner made it clear he wants nothing more to do with Cash Money.

“I am a prisoner and so is my creativity Again,I am truly sorry and I don’t blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u (sic),” he wrote to his over 19 million Twitter followers. “To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it. This is not my fault.”
