Was ‘If You Reading This It’s Too Late’ meant to be a #GangstaGrillz?

Recently DatPiff’s founder Kyle ‘KP’ Reilly sat down with HipHopDX and dropped some interesting tidbits on Drake’s latest EP. Supposedly Drake’s surprise album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late was meant to be a mixtape project hosted by DJ Drama in his infamous Gangsta Grillz series however Cash Money intervened insisting that Drake release the album as a retail project. In a compromise for both Cash Money and Drake the project was an instant influx of cash for the label, selling over 495K copies on iTunes, and a relief of Drake’s four album commitment to Cash Money. Honestly it would behoove Drake to sign with another label with Cash Money’s latest money woes but only time will tell, note his OVO Sound is currently distributed through Interscope.
