Akon may have made the biggest mistake of his career.

During a recent conversation with VladTV, Akon spoke about passing on the chance to sign Drake to his Konvict Muzik label.

Akon said, “At the time, believe it or not, Drake sounded more like Eminem.”

While it’s something that is probably hard to comprehend, Akon continued saying, “That’s every artists’ development. You can see the difference between that demo and ‘Best I Ever Had’.”

Clearly, Lil Wayne saw something in him and he became the biggest star of this era. I can’t wait to watch how long Drake’s run lasts. Can you imagine Drake saying “Konvict Muzik”. Ha!
