Burgeoning Rapper Drake Uses TuneCore For 'Best I Ever Had'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media)-The news of the burgeoning success of DIY rapper Drake, who is using TuneCore to distribute his hit song "Best I Ever Had," is spreading fast. It's just more proof that TuneCore has almost singlehandedly changed the old rules of the music business. Drake paid less than $10 to get "Best I Ever Had" on iTunes and will keep all the royalties the hit generates.
Check out what Digital Music News says about the Drake phenomenon:

"Until recently, the typical game plan for rappers was to develop some buzz, get discovered by a major label, and blast some songs nationwide. But today's hip-hop artists are blasting that dream to bits, thanks to mixtapes, the internet, and a totally different set of economic rules.

One of the biggest songs on the airwaves is a catchy rap ballad called "Best I Ever Had" by newcomer Drake. According to data found on BigChampagne's BCDash, "Best" is currently ranked No 2 onDrake, Best I Ever Had RMX Mediabase's Urban chart and No 3 on Hit-Rhythmic. That's quite impressive, especially given the lack of a major label push. Instead, this Canadian rapper has topped the charts based on internet buzz and guest appearances."
