This is a dated article, but extremely well written and it explains a lot about Aubrey Graham that wasn’t known before. They analyze his accent and conclude that because it’s a mix of far north Toronto and far south Memphis, if one didn’t know better they’d think he came straight out of the Midwest. They also attempt to break down the bidding war that landed Drake with Young Money. This subsequently reveals that Drake is not actually signed to the Cash Money/Universal Motown label, but Universal Republic, which is a separate entity. So screaming out “Young Money” is more of a nod to his mentor than a “structural reality.”
