Universal Music Group reached deep into their pockets to keep the God’s Plan singer on their roster.
Drake is securing a major bag by signing a fresh contract with Universal Music Group. The Champaign Papi has inked a $400 million wide-ranging deal that covers everything from music recordings to visual media projects. UMG chairman Sir Lucian Grainge confirmed the “LeBron sized” contract on Wednesday.
Drizzy alluded to the riches he would make from the deal in some recent lyrics.
On Lemon Pepper Freestyle from his 2021 EP Scary Hours 2, the 6 God raps, “Three-sixty upfront, it all comes full circle,” which sounds like a nod to his massive deal. He directly mentions the contract on the Migos track Having Out Way, when he spits the line: “Billionaires talk to me different when they see my pay stub from Lucian Grainge.”
