Drake's 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late' Was Originally To Be A Free Gangsta Grillz Mixtape
"Originally we were in talks to release it for free...and have DJ Drama host and even make it an official Gangsta Grillz...however the label was not in favor of that and they struck an agreement to release the project the retail route and it would count towards one of his albums. It was a mutual decision since he wanted to give it away. They [the label] said, 'Hell no,' not in those words, so they 'agreed' to do it this way as a middle ground and it would count towards his Cash Money deal album total. The label had zero input or creative control over 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late" KyleKP said in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX.
