Young Money CEO Cortez Bryant Speaks on Drake’s Distribution Deal

Tue, Jun 30, 2009 by Daniel Mousdell

Cortez BryantIn one of hip-hop’s most drawn-out bidding wars, Drake has finally inked a deal with Universal Republic, according to Young Money’s Cortez Bryant.

Bryant says the Toronto rapper was already signed to Young Money Entertainment, but signed his distribution deal on Sunday. “We were looking for all the creative control and all the say-so over the project,” said Bryant, “the person who gave us the sweetest deal.”

Drake, who Bryant says is ecstatic about the signing, will appear on one of two follow-up singles to Young Money’s hit “Every Girl,” slated to drop in the next two weeks.

Drake’s debut album, Thank Me Later, has no release date, but Bryant says the Young Money group album is expected to drop late this year, on the same day as Lil Wayne’s Rebirth.

    I thought Mack Maine was the CEO now?
    Don’t think its too smart to have both albums dropping the same day!

    I think Cortez is just Wayne’s manager and Mack is the president of all of Young Money

    Young Money need to sign that artist out of Brooklyn who goes by the name of John Sportin. He sounds like The Notorious B.I.G to me.

    His flow ,style and delivery is crazy. Just google his BK Baby music video on you tube or his myspace site. This guy is a real rap star.
