Drake Wants Nothing to Do With Drake’s ‘Homecoming’ Concert Movie
Drake has let it drop that he wants nothing to do with the film that documents one of his first solo live performances.
The "Started From the Bottom" rapper distanced himself from the concert film Drake's Homecoming: The Lost Footage Monday (March 16) when he tweeted: "The Drake Homecoming film is not something OVO or Drake have any part in. I feel it is my responsibility to inform and protect my fans." See the tweet below.
The unofficial concert film, which will play in a select 350 movie theaters on March 19, contains footage of then-23-year-old Drizzy performing at Toronto's Sounds Academy back in 2009. According the Fathom Events, the biopic "tells the story of Drake’s early career before signing with Young Money." The never-before-seen the footage reportedly includes interviews with James Prince and his son Jas Prince, who are credited with discovering Drake.
Billboard reports that Jas Prince, CEO of Young Empire Music Group and executive producer of the film, might be the source of all this tension. Jas Prince has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Cash Money claiming "unpaid royalties for his role in Drake's career."
Drake's reps also issued a statement: "Obviously Drake and OVO only put out music and video/film that is of the highest quality for their brand and what their fans have come to expect and do not want any fans to buy into something that has not come from them."
