Well...maybe not quite. Our favorite mob moll isn't releasing any tracks on the hip-hop label -- at least not yet -- but it looks like she is joining the extended Cash Money family in a sense: her Staten Island bar, the Drunken Monkey, is hosting an official listening party tomorrow for Drake's new album, Nothing Was the Same. (Maybe Nicki Minaj recommended the venue?)
The SI shindig is part of a series of listening parties within the five boroughs; three sessions have already taken place (one in Jam Master J's Hall of Fame Studio in Queens, another in Harlem's Black Star Video and a third in Vinnie's Styles Clothing Store in Brooklyn) and the fifth will go down at Jimmy Jazz in the Bronx on the 23rd. For a rapper who routinely gets mocked for his middle-class-Toronto-acting-on-Degrassi upbringing, his decision not to host the listening parties at swish places like No. 8 or Milk Studios seems like Drake's way of trying to beef up his cred. Though, unfortunately, we're under the impression that Drizzy will not be at any of these parties. But, hey, you can always hang out and do shots with Big Ang and Lil' Louis.
