In a recent interview with MTV, Kardinal Offishall talks about Akon's opportunity to sign Drake:
"The biggest one that he passed on, I told him about Drake early," Kardi revealed. "I said, 'Kon, this kid is a T.V. star... and this kid is crazy.' "
Kardinal goes on to say that once Drake blew up, he rubbed it in a little:
"After he blew, I went back and said, 'See Kon, I told you,' " Kardinal said. "But it's one of those things that worked out beautifully for Drake with YMCMB. He's got a good camp."
Interestingly enough, Drizzy and Kardi weren't always on the best of terms.
