Before Drake was Young Money’s golden child he was Jimmy from Degrassi: The Next Generation who was struggling to switch lanes from actor from emcee. After releasing releasing the short film Jungle and a new mixtape If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late yesterday (Feb. 12), he has announced that he will be dropping a documentary that chronicles his humble beginnings.
In the trailer for Homecoming: The Lost Footage, Jas Prince, son of Rap-A-Lot CEO James Prince, revealed that Young Money head honcho Lil’ Wayne didn’t always see Drake’s potential and had no interest in bringing him into his circle.
“Wayne told me he sucked,” Prince said. “He was like, ‘Jas, don’t play me that shit no more. It’s no good.’” Wayne’s change of heart was imminent.
The film, which will hit select theaters on Mar. 19th, features never before seen footage of his 2009 performance at Toronto’s Sound Academy, commentary from Bun B, behind the scenes footage and early career interviews.
