Drake gets a new management company

Rapper Drake has continued to make a name for himself within the hip hop industry. Most recently, he's decided to switch gears with his management team, ditching BMI for ASCAP. The latter is the nation's top performing rights organization, according to BET.

Fellow performers like Eminem, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams all call this management team home, meaning Drake is in good company - and he knows it.

"For me, a big part of making music is getting the opportunity to work with people I love, trust and respect," Drake said in a statement. "As an organization run by music creators, ASCAP represents a whole community of kindred spirits. Joining ASCAP was just a natural choice for me because I know my music is in the best possible hands."

The ASCAP's official website reports the group is a "professional membership organization of songwriters, composers and music publishers of every kind of music." Its mission is to license and promote the music of members, while providing musicians with fair compensation for live performances, record sales and merchandise. 

Do you think Drake made the right move? How do you think switching will affect the cost of his concert tickets, merchandise, etc.?
