We'll what do you know the King has spoken. Rumor has it, that Lil Wayne is urging Drake to end his beef with Chris Brown. While, Drake stands firm on the notion that he had nothing to do with last weeks brawl, that disrupted a club atmosphere, with abrupt bottle throwing and sheer violence targeting Chris Brown; the ymcmb camp's take on the situation is simply that it needs to end. When the bottom line is drawn, they understand that Drake is their artist, and if he salvage relationships with Big Artists such as Chris Brown, then he is basically forfeiting chances to make mega bucks.
Ultimately, the goal at hand is supposed to be to get money, and Weezy of all people, have totally grasped the concept. Plain and simple Chris Brown, is one of the hottest artists out right now. He is like the signature hot stamp; if the song is hot, you best to believe Breezy's vocals are being featured on it. Nicki Minaj, who just happens to be one Drake's label mate,has a hit in heavy rotation now that features, non other than Chris Brown. The song is entitled " Right By My Side". Drake himself is a great artist as well, but the fact remains to salvage a relationship with Chris Brown would salvage a relationship with his fan base, and his supporters and that could be detrimental for Drake and Young Money.
According to TMZ,
Lil Wayne and the rest of the Young Money crew want Drake to put an end to his beefwith Chris Brown ... STAT -- because the bad blood is bad for busine$$.
It's a sign that as bad ass as rap may be ... the bottom line is the bottom line.
Sources close to Drake tell TMZ, Drizzy has received several calls from Weezy, Birdman, Mack Maine and more -- urging the rapper to extend an olive branch to Brown after last week's nightclub brawl in NYC.
Sources tell us, Wayne and co. are worried the rift will affect business -- since Brown appears on several tracks with Young Money members and, pure and simple, Brown = hits.
We're told Drake doesn't want to reach out to Breezy until he knows CB doesn't actually blame him for last week's melee -- despite what Brown's lawyer has been saying ... thatDrake was one of the aggressors.
We're told Young Money's on Drake's side no matter what -- but as one source put it, "Making money matters most."
