Jas Prince Reflects on Discovering Drake, the Creation of “So Far Gone” 

Jas Prince, the son of Rap-A-Lot Records founder J. Prince, recently spoke with Vlad TV about discovering Drake and connecting him with Lil’ Wayne. 

During the interview, Jas revealed that Drake was the first artist he discovered after getting involved with his pops’ legendary record label. Jas reportedly got wind of the Toronto emcee after searching Myspace for artists. After hearing Drake’s material, Jas said he was impressed and promised Drake he would make him famous.

Jas admits that Lil’ Wayne wasn’t feeling Drake’s music initially. But one particular ride in Jas’ car would change the Young Money CEO’s views forever.

Arranging Drake’s deal with Cash Money/Young Money; the creation of the groundbreaking mixtape-turned-EP So Far Gone; and his business partnership with J. Prince were other things Jas touched on during the interview.
