Drake is looking to produce and star in TV and movies.
Apple seems eager to back his productions as it gears up to spend billions in Hollywood.
Drake is looking to become a force in TV and movies, according to a fantastic new feature in The Hollywood Reporter that includes an interview with the Canadian rap superstar.
He has at least one powerful backer in his corner: Apple, which is said to be planning to spend billions on video content in the next few years.
One of Apple's top executives working on movies and music, Jimmy Iovine, says that Drake has the "go-ahead" to produce whatever shows or movies he wants.
That's partially due to Drake's massive profile as a celebrity rapper and former child TV star, but it also speaks to the close relationship between Drake and Apple Music.
