T.I. Admits He Passed On Signing Drake
Rapper T.I. revealed this week that he chose not to sign a certain Canadian hip-hop artist to his label, Grand Hustle Records.
“I passed on Drake,” T.I. admitted during an interview with The Breakfast Club.
“It was Drake before the beard,” he recalled.
”It just hadn't caught all the way up yet, that type of music, that sound of music. The emo sound wasn't necessarily prevalent at the time so I didn't see the curve.”
T.I. was asked about Meek Mill’s 2015 diss track, in which Drake was accused of letting an intoxicated friend of T.I. urinate on him at a movie premiere in 2010.
“I have no recollection. I cannot confirm nor deny anything,” T.I. replied diplomatically. "Let's move on to the next question.”
