this is my first post,, i actually couldn't post this as i hadn't written enough of my own commenting, but i think this story speaks for itself..

i invite all theories, n hypothesis', as def jam records has already gained an auspicious place in my mind, therefore i find it interesting that it occured in an off branch of the label..

You know what

most recently there are two things that the industry has pushed more than the people.

The first thing is Twitter, then Drake

Celebrities and Media outlets pushed twitter before it was even that popular with the masses. I've never seen anything like it.
The other thing is Drake, a music artist.

Usually the people love it, a buzz is created and then celebrities and the media talk about it.

But in these two cases it was the complete opposite.
