Drake spent 2011 prepping Take Care in Toronto, away from Young Money’s camp in Miami. In October, he announced that he’s taking Kendrick Lamar and ASAP Rocky on his Club Paradise tour, neither Young Money artists. On the subway and by the water cooler, we heard he was ready to announce his departure from the label, but he says it isn’t so. Nicki and Wayne are already on their own tours and, “at the end of the day that’s my boss I’m his solider. I’m cool with that. That’s the role I wanna play. He put me here,” Drake told MTV. In related news, Drake turned in his delayed album last night:
Take Care is scheduled for a November 15th release. Read about the making of the album and Drake’s relationship with his producer Noah “40″ Shebib here.
