The New York Daily News reports:

Jas Prince, son of Rap-a-Lot CEO J. Prince, has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court against Drake’s management team for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. In total, there are 10 claims against Drizzy’s manager Cortez Bryant, Gerald “Gee” Roberson, Derrick Lawrence and the firm Aspire Music Group LLC.

J. Prince explains how he discovered Drake:

“One day while leavin’ the [mall], I just threw [Drake’s] CD in and let it play,” Prince explained. “[Lil Wayne] was like, ‘Wait … who is this?’ and I was like, ‘Drake … the guy I been tellin’ you about.’ Wayne told me to book him on the next flight to Houston,” explains Prince.
