Drake’s Management Sued For Unpaid Royalties
J. Prince Jr., the talent scout who introduced Drake to Lil Wayne, claims he hasn't received royalties due to him.
Drake's management team, consisting of manager Cortez Bryant, Gerald "Gee" Roberson, Derrick Lawrence, and the firm Aspire Music Group LLC., is being sued by talent scout James "Jas" Prince, who is credited for getting Drake signed to Young Money Records.
Reportedly, Prince played Drizzy's CD for Lil Wayne which led to Drizzy eventually being signed to Young Money!
"One day while leavin' the [mall], I just threw [Drake's] CD in and let it play," Prince explained. "[Lil Wayne] was like, 'Wait … who is this?' and I was like, 'Drake … the guy I been tellin' you about.' Wayne told me to book him on the next flight to Houston," explains Prince.
According to his claims, Bryant promised him royalties from Drizzy's music but hasn't been paid in over a year!
