Drake Receives Ontario Music Fund Grant For OVO Sound

(Radio.com) Drake's OVO Fest might not have received government funding this year, after Canada's tax payers were dismayed to find that they had funded the 2014 event, but the rapper's OVO Sound branch will be.

The Ontario Music Fund has bestowed a grant to OVO Sound worth $45,000, Hot New Hip-Hop reports. Other recipients include the Canadian electronic outfit A Tribe Called Red, who was awarded $38,000.

While those figures seem steep, many of the other applicants ended up receiving upward of $100,000. Drake has yet to announce his plans for the grant money but he's currently busy at the moment with his second Houston Appreciation Weekend, a four-day festival beginning today, May 21.
