Jim Jones Didn’t Sign Drake Because He Didn’t Know What to Do With Actor ‘In a Wheelchair’ on ‘Disney Channel’ Jim Jones recently spoke about failing to sign Drake because he didn’t know what to do with an “actor in a wheelchair.” “Drake definitely ran across my desk,” Jim admitted. “I got a call from Alan Grunblatt, I think I was on tour, and Alan was like, ‘I got this guy named Drake, uh, he’s an actor, he’s on Degrassi.’ I’m like, ‘Who the f__k is Drake on Degrassi?’ He let me hear him rapping like this boy could rap his ass off.” Jones admitted he couldn’t see past, an actor who portrayed a disabled person on what Jones thought was a Disney channel show, Degrassi actually aired on PBS.  Lil Wayne was able to see past Drake’s character on Degrassi and help him transition into the megastar he is today. Jones also passed on J. Cole.  Do you think Drake would be the star he is today if he would’ve signed with Jim Jones?
