Skepta Says Drake Will Sign to Boy Better Know Under Separate Contract
In February, Drake announced that he had signed to Skepta's Boy Better Know (BBK) label and now details are starting to emerge regarding the signing. In an interview with the London edition of Time Out Magazine, Skepta clarified that the BBK contract will be separate from Drizzy's deal with Cash Money and part of a new globalized BBK imprint.
"We’re putting together an official worldwide BBK label," said the UK artist, "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."
In the Time Out story, the British MC also shared an entertaining story about the time he met Diddy.
"Me and Diddy went to a pool party. I tried pushing this girl into the water and this guy comes over: 'Don’t touch my girl!' I end jumping out of the pool to fight him. Diddy was like: 'Skepta, man, just chill!' But I go: 'Nah! Who does this guy think he is?' He’s probably thinking: 'I’ve seen this crazy shit before [with Biggie]. People die from this shit.' He didn’t stay in touch. I’ve changed a lot since then."
Drake clearly feels an allegiance towards the crew as he got a "BBK" tattoo and tried to get the popular Grime artist on his Views album. “We’re trying to do something for his record,” Skepta told Beats 1 Radio's Zane Lowe in an interview. “It makes more sense to be on his record rather than mine.”
While the collab didn't come to fruition, Skepta dropped his solo effort Konnichiwa last week.
