Rumors swirled earlier this year about Drake possibly getting signed to Skepta's record label, Boy Better Know. Fast forward about two months later, and the U.K. grime rapper is now confirming the news.

In an interview with Time Out, Skepta revealed a few details on the deal: "We’re putting together an official worldwide BBK label, but we haven’t talked about how it’ll work yet. It’ll be separate to his existing contracts. Trust me, I am not gonna sue Lil Wayne."

The rapper also reflected on how he first met Drake at—where else?—a mansion party the Toronto boy threw in Miami. It turns out that Skepta was actually staying at the house and was woken up by a friend:

"‘I was like, “Why the fuck would you open my door and tell me to wake up?” ’ he says. ‘She just goes: “Would I wake you for a joke? I know you’re cranky!”’

No word of what's to come next from this Skepta/Drake business partnership, but I wouldn't be surprised if the two have a collaborative project in the works.
