It seems that Drake former manager Derrick Lawrence was sentenced to prison for 8 months after pleading guilty to three counts of tax evasion after he did not file his tax returns between the years 2009-2011. He allegedly made $2.2 million during those year and owed $750,000 in taxes.
Lawrence is the co-founder of Aspire Music Group and apparently managed Drake during 2008. According to Daily News he said “It was never a disrespect to the government. It was a lack of knowledge..it’s my fault for not following up with my accountants who I hired.”
His attorney Stacey Richman says she is confident that he will pay off this debt as he is a hardworking person in the industry. He still owes $600,000 to the feds.
