Fake Drake CD Sold On iTunes, Rapper Plans To Sue

Drizzy Drake, arguably the most talked about unsigned rapper this year, has a buzz so big that an unauthorized CD has hit iTunes trying to profit off his work, Billboard has learned.

According to the site, Canadian Money Entertainment released the album, titled The Girls Love Drake, on May 28. Distributed by Independent Online Distribution Alliance, the CD features tracks from Drizzy’s free mixtape So Far Gone.

The Toronto MC’s people told Billboard that they did not OK the release and said they are trying to clear the samples themselves off So Far Gone so they can officially sell them in stores.

Drake’s manager Al Branch has sent a cease and desist letter to iTunes and plans on suing Canadian Money Entertainment. “This is a straight bootleg, a scandal,” he said. “We are behind promoting records at radio, but haven’t sold it. iTunes position is that they are store and they stock everything. They have a waiver and as long as people sign it and are responsible for the product they submit, then they go for it.”

As previously reported Drake is currently involved in a serious bidding war between at least three major labels. The rapper will most likely sign with Universal, due the the label’s affiliation with his mentor Lil Wayne’s Young Money, which is in no way associated with Canadian Money. – Elan Mancini
