Specifically, Kardi revealed to MTV News that he recommended to Akon that he sign Drizzy.
“The biggest one that he passed on, I told him about Drake early,” he said of Akon, who has signed artists such as T-Pain and Lady Gaga. “I said, ‘Kon, this kid is a T.V. star… and this kid is crazy.'”
“I had met him years before he started with his first mixtape,” continued Offishall. “The thing that’s dope about Drake is that I remember, like he was just hungry because he wanted to make that transition from the acting to the rapping.”
“After he blew [with So Far Gone], I went back and said, ‘See Kon, I told you,'” said Kardinal. “But it’s one of those things that worked out beautifully for Drake with YMCMB. He’s got a good camp.”
