Drake Management Sued

Drake’s management team has been sued by Jas Prince, son of Rap-a-Lot Records founder James Prince, who claims he has been denied a finder’s fee for introducing the future star.

Jas Prince claims he introduced Drake to Lil Wayne in 2007 or 2008, and Drake later became a client of Wayne manager Cortez Bryant and his management company, The Blueprint Group (cited in the lawsuit as Laurant Management). Co-managers Gee Roberson and Derrick Lawrence at Three Kings Management are also co-defendants.

Prince claims he and Cortez had a verbal agreement to split their share of Drake’s profits. The lawsuit exhibits a settlement agreement between the parties that outlines what was owed Prince but stipulates he could not look at the defendants’ books without an audit.

Prince claims Bryant had no intention of honoring the agreement and sued the parties for breach of contract. He also wants to bar the defendants from renegotiating their contracts with Drake until he gets what is owed him – a $100,000 cut of profits.

A representative for Bryant had no comment at press time.
