This Valentine’s day (February 14), YMCMB rapper Drake will be kicking off his “2012 Paradise Tour,” with Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rock as opening acts. Drake’s latest album, entitled Take Care debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 659,000 copies in the first week. The disc features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, André 3000, Rick Ross, and more.
In related Drake news, he has parted ways with International Creative Management (ICM). Drake is still being represented by United States based company Hip Hop Since 1978, contrary to a report in the New York Post. The rapper’s original management team remains in place, while William Morris Entertainment will represent and book the rapper across the world.
“WME now represents Drake in all areas worldwide,” a rep said in a statement. “Contrary to previous reports, there has been no change with Drake’s management team, and he continues to be managed by Gee Roberson, Al Branch, Kyambo Joshua and Bryant Cortez of Hip Hop Since 1978.”
