Watch Akon explain why he didn’t sign Drake when he had the chance.

In an interview with VladTV, (cue in to 2:09) Akon talks about why he passed on signing Drake after hearing his demo.  Drake sounding like Eminem?!  Wouldn’t you be curious to hear the demo that Akon did?

If you watch this video from the beginning, you can hear how Akon made a lot of money (he won’t say exactly how much) from letting Lady Gaga out of her deal with him.
