Not much Akon news have hit the web recently, but thanks to TMZ, we get to connect with the singer-label head once again. They ask him if he regrets not signing Drake, an opportunity that he had back in 2005 but passed on, to which he replied that he does not. Akon explained: “At the time when I passed, he wasn’t was he is today. He grew into being an incredible artist...he was good, he just wasn't original." Watch the video above and let us know what you think about Akon's decision and response.
