i think Good Music is perfect for his style. Ye, Drake, and Cudi sounds much better.
that would be the worst thing.
Don't badmind me.
Exactly.that would be the worst thing. i dont like ye' and i really dislike that kid cudi guy. i would rather seen drake on bad boy before seeing him on fucking good music. good music is full of old ass men rapping about fashion and dumb shit like the're my age.........even tho sa-ra and john legend rock......young money is cool with me.

Young Money has actually not only helped his career but his flow as well. Being around Wayne made him switch up his flow to a more melodic style and it has made him all the better. Plus YM is closer to his age hence the YOUNG and the popularity that wayne is experiencing could easily open the dorr for Drake even further. ANd, maximum Wayne presence is fine with me, hasnt hurt him thus far.
Bad Boy? Drake will end up a ghost writer and broke from Puff eating his publishing. Plus, Puff has creative control over every project.
Signing to Good isn't about Cudi and Ye doing verses it's about branding. You think Drake would fit better on a tour w/Baby, Tyga, and some hood rappers or NERD, Lupe, Common, etc.? As for your "old ass men rapping about fashion" comment, no one on Good talks about fashion but Ye. Common, Cudi, Legend, Cons, and Glc don't even talk about fashion. Taz doesn't even speak on it in his music. Drake actually raps about clothes more than any Good artist besides Ye.
The thing about Ye is he gives his artists freedom. Drake could keep his producers plus have access to Ye, Sa-Ra, and Legend not to mention Ye's ties to Jay and Jut Blaze. Ye is surrounded by veterans who can provide guidance to a new artist. YM is irrelevent besides Wayne. Wayne has yet to launch a successful artist on YM not to mention dude is always high or sipping syrup. I don't want my biggest connect to be an addict.
Let's look at Cudi, without opinions on his music, but from a purely business sense. Cudi has performed on the MTV awards, has a song getting radio spins, a XXL cover, a cameo on a platinum album, and has everyone from Jim Jones to Collie Budz remixing his song. Cudi has done this off 1 mixtape. Drake is on his 3rd mixtape and hasn't accomplished as much as Cudi. Good Music is the better connect period.
Let me clarify, I'm cool w/an association to Wayne but not YM. What has YM accomplished? They dropped Tyga's album and he flopped. Good Music has Common who's a vet and can teach Drake a lot. Legend can help him w/his R&B song writing. GM has hits. Com became a mainstream success after signing w/Ye. Legend is a multi-platinum star. Tyga, Jae Millz, and Minaj are not likely to blow. This is cut and dry. GM's associations are far stronger.
Ye's cosign gives you the mainstream. Com's cosign gives you the MC respect. Legend gives you the R&B stamp. That covers more bases then Wayne can.
Ask yourself this, why did Drake not sign w/YM? Wayne's an addict and learned the business from Baby who jerked all his artists. Ye's artists seem happy.
dude. shut the fuck up. dont ever disrespect n.e.r.d. like that.....look, good music a fucking gay, cudi is gay and that day and night song is gay. no shit he shouldnt sign to bad boy dumbass, i was making an example...and common giving drake advice is like martin luther king jr. giving advice to fucking hitler. two different mind states you fucking loser. i'm really mad right now. stfu and get off of kanyes dickhead..........drake is way better off on young money insted of some gay ass consious hip hop label. and conz and GLC dont talk about clothing? stfu
Nothing in Drakes style or music has really shown that he would be a great fit with GOOD music. Sure GOOD does some pretty decent stuff with their artists but ask YOUR sekl what have they done with any other artists besides the established acts. You can say how much Kanye has done for Cudi but its all preliminary. CUdi has had some mainstream exposure but he hasnt done much other then some TV appearances and remixes yet. You mention him yet you fail to leave out the several artsist that Kanye had on the label before Cudi? What happened to Consequenses promotion? GLC's album? Really DOe? Fonzworth? The fact is, GOOD has BEEN having exposure and a hot artist and they have only 3 artists that have actually sold anything or are popular...1 is Kanye the other is Common who already had a following and the third is a R&B singer. The truth is allot of the artists on GOOD may not EVER come out with an album.
Originally posted by Inactive UserIm thinking people would rather see Drake with GOOD becase they perfer the artists or rather the main artist, Kanye. Drakes's entire auro has never been that of thae artsy, soulful type which is what you can find of any of the artsist that Kanye actually pays attention to on GOOD. WHile Young Money hasnt had major succes with their artists you have to ask yourself who have they really had? Mac Maine, Currency (who has left) and Wayne have basically been the ONLY artsist until the last couple of years. So really you're basing it off of a label who has only dropped 2 albums from 2 artists..wayne and tyga..and yes...the Tyga album flopped, but that happens...there has been a flop on GOOD as well, its not like someone is immune because of the artsist that are associated. FUrthermore, the target audience of Drake's reputation with teengae girls is much more conducive to being with Wayne then Kanye, Common or anyone at GOOD records add that to the fact that Wayne and Drake have excellent chemistry.
Originally posted by Inactive UserAnd so maybe Drake would be heads and shoulders above the other label mates, but seriously...what record label do you know that has a roster filled iwth Michael Jordans? The fact that Drake and Wayne would be sharing label space is impressive enough. Plus, YM is just an affiliation. He fux with YM buthe has his own label deal and clique. Its just for exposure and its worked very well so far, and yes thats even if he didnt have a remix by an electro group or a pot on TV. If you look at it, the internet and mixtape hustle was how Wayne moved his fame and game up anyway. So it all seems to be running smoothly of u ask me.
We can cherry pick who we want to have in the discussion or who we dont. But if you're talking an entire record label then we cant just put the artists in that have only been successful to boost your argument. Ok, so Really Doe and Cons and GLC are Kanye's mans? What do you think Mac Maine or Currency was? Teenage friends from New Orleans and using YOUR words "with no real commercial appeal". So using your reasoning, take away Tyga as a failure and wait and see w/Drake.
Originally posted by Inactive UserYoung Money hasn't been that popular as a label except for the last few years. So while Kanye was breaking Legend Wayne was still in his mixtape hustle trying to gain fame and respect. The other artists on Young Money arent gonna sell if the main artist, Wayne, was only this big within the last few years. Waynes popularity has only been at this height for the past 3 years or so and in that time he has dropped one album. Now you may expect him to do wonders with his artists in that time period but thats completely ridiculous. Also, like i said the artsy artists are pretty much the only ones who have been succesfull on GOOD.
lol, all these wayne haters on hypebeast..
nah, i used to like wayne back in the carter 2, dedication 2 days. seriously. but im not blind enough to realize he's not the same and im not some lil high school kid brainwashed believing he's the "best rapper alive" just cuz he claimed it. especially when i hear people like Lupe, Andre 3000 or Nas saying shit on a whole 'notha level.
I heard he's been sober for 30 + days so that's good. like how he came on that qtip renaissance rap remix. so dont call me a hater.
