Skepta Reveals How He Met Drake, Confirms He Will Signing To Boy Better Know

Skepta recently chopped it up with Time Out magazine for an interview and one of the things that he revealed in their conversation was how he first met Drake before they became good friends.

The grime artist also confirmed that Drizzy Drake will be signing to his and Jme‘s Boy Better Know record label after Drizzy mentioned he was “the first Canadian signed to BBK” in an Instagram post a few months ago.

However, Skepta did explain that the deal won’t affect Drake‘s situation with Young Money and Weezy: “Trust me, I am not gonna sue Lil Wayne“!

As we listen to the album, Skepta talks about the other North American in his life: Drake. They met when the Canadian rapper threw a party at a Miami mansion where Skepta was staying. Drake requested his attendance, prompting a friend to go and wake Skepta up, much to his displeasure : ‘I was like, “Why the fuck would you open my door and tell me to wake up?” ’ he says. ‘She just goes: “Would I wake you for a joke? I know you’re cranky!”’ Now they’re so tight that Drake half-inched some of Skepta’s lyrics for an appearance on Lil Wayne track ‘Used To’. And, in an announcement that nigh-on melted the internet last February, Drake said that he’d ‘signed’ to Boy Better Know. Which, despite the obvious potential contractual difficulties this presents with Drake already being signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, Skepta claims is actually true. ‘We’re putting together an official worldwide BBK label,’ he reveals, ‘but we haven’t talked about how it’ll work yet. It’ll be separate to his existing contracts. Trust me, I am not gonna sue Lil Wayne.’
