TALKS MIGOS, DRAKE, KANYE, & MORE
The Breakfast Club talks with Cohen for over an hour on various topics that included posing with Kanye West in a MAGA hat, ignoring the existence of Dame Dash, working for the National Bank of Israel, starting 300 Entertainment, and nearly signing Drake to Def Jam.
He says that the popular Toronto rapper reneged on a handshake deal the two had for him to sign with Def Jam. “The truth is Drake shook my hand. It doesn’t matter. He didn’t stop the party. I’m happy for him and I’m happy for his fans. It didn’t hurt my feelings, but you know I’m old school,” Lyor admitted.
There is something off with his comments as Cohen’s relationship with Island Def Jam back in 2004, while Drake signed a deal to Young Money Entertainment in 2009 during Lyor’s tenure at Warner as chairman through 2012.
