Drake now working with agents WME Worldwide

By | Published on Friday 2 December 2011


Rap type Drake has dropped the services of agents ICM, and will now be represented globally by William Morris Endeavor. However, this does not affect his management relationship, with Drake’s career still being managed by Hip Hop Since 1978, the management agency that also looks after Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.

A New York Post report on Drake extending his relationship with WME claimed the deal also saw the star parting company with Hip Hop Since 1978, but Billboard have confirmed that is not true via a WME spokesman. Drake actually confirmed he was working with the William Morris agency last month, but the original plan seemed to be that ICM would continue to handle his bookings in North America, but that is no longer the case.
