Jas Prince talks about introducing Drake to Wayne when he was on the road with Young Money/Cash Money and stated that he was looking at signing Drake, but the label told him that they weren’t looking for any artist, and Lil Wayne said he (Drake) sucked.
*says a day after he threw Wayne a concert in Houston, Wayne asked him to take him to his Jeweler. They were in the car, so he took this as an opportunity to play the new music that he had been giving Drake. He played two songs, one of him rapping, and one of him singing. Wayne was vibing to the music and asked who it was. He told him it was Drake. He says Wayne said that Drake was actually pretty nice, and Jas basically told him, I told you so.
*They called Drake that day, Drake was at the barbershop in Toronto. Jas gave the phone to Wayne, they briefly, then Wayne gave the phone back to Jas, and Jas told him to send his info and they’d fly him to Houston, and the rest is history……
Bottom line, Drake never needed Wayne. Wayne needed Drake.
