    According to Billboard.com, Fake Drake Albums have been sold over iTunes. (Say What Now?) People are trying to capitalize on Drake since he is the #1 unsigned artist of 2009. It’s been a minute since an artist of his caliber has been making MAJOR waves and a major record label isn’t the one supporting him right now. Actually, it sounds like some NBA draft pick. Drake said it best “Rookie of year, ’06 Chris Paul shit”. Everyone is patiently waiting to see which major label he will call home.  Read below.

    An unauthorized album, “The Girls Love Drake,” which features selections from the Toronto rapper’s mixtape “So Far Gone” and other tracks, was released May 28th by a label called Canadian Money Entertainment and distributed by the Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA) on iTunes, Rhapsody and Amazon.

    Drake’s camp, which is still trying to clear the samples on “So Far Gone” and his two other mixtapes in hopes of selling them in stores, says it didn’t authorize the release.

    If it hadn’t been disqualified on the grounds that it wasn’t confirmed as being an official album, “The Girls Love Drake” would have debuted this week at No. 101 on the Billboard 200, NO. 16 on the Digital Albums chart and No. 1 on the Heatseekers tally. “Best I Ever Had” and “Every Girl” (credited to Young Money), two tracks on the mixtape that have previously charted, appear on this week’s Hot Digital Songs chart thanks to downloads of “The Girls Love Drake.” Additionally, “Best I Ever Had” jumps 60-18 on the Billboard 200, while “Every Girl” leaps 75-35, although chart experts predict they will both drop again once the unofficial album is no longer available.

    After finding the album on iTunes, Drake’s management sent a cease-and-desist notice to the retailer, which has since removed it. At press time, the album was still available on Rhapsody and Amazon, although Drake’s manager Al Branch says he’s having it removed from these retailers as well.
