Drake has apparently been signed to Boy Better Know Records.
The Canadian rapper and singer posted a photo on Instagram last night (Wednesday 24th February) to make an announcement.
After performing ‘Work’ at the BRITs alongside Rihanna, Drake ditched the immediate after-party celebrations in favour of making a surprise appearance alongside Skepta at Village Underground, Shoreditch, where Section Boyz were performing a headline set.
Drake’s love affair for Boy Better Know is no secret. From bringing out Skepta to his headline set at Wireless in 2015 to getting a questionable tattoo of the letters ‘bbk’ on his shoulder, Drake has been a platform for spreading word of the UK’s grime and hip hop scene.
Besides Drake’s Instagram post, no specifics surrounding the deal have been made public yet, but vague postings on Instagram from Skepta and Wiley respectively, as well as Lady Leshurr on Twitter seem to reinforce the news.
