So word on the street is that Lil Wayne‘s favorite ghost writer and internet pheonom, Drake, is going to sign with Interscope Records.  It’s also been rumored that Jay-Z himself is looking for some possible studio time with Drizzy after Drake spit some bars for Mr. & Mrs. Carter up in Canada.  Weezy’s number one source of inspiration is also managed by the influential Hip-Hop & G (the guys who discovered Kanye), only putting him in a stronger position to succeed.  Another fact of note is that supposedly Sylvia Rhone from Universal/Motown passed on the boy Drake.  Interesting.  This is the same woman who signed Kid Cudi.  Does that mean Kid Cudi > Drake.  Doubtful in this blogger’s mind.  To be real I’ve been unimpressed with a lot of the shit Cudi has dropped post A Kid Named Cudi, and I see nothing but commercial success coming from Drake.  So it looks like a lot of power moves are going to be made in the next week.  Stay tuned for updates here on iHipHop.com.  Plus cop Drake‘s classic mixtape So Far So Gone already.  You’re going to look like an amateur  if you don’t.
