Lil Wayne introduces his label: YOUNG MONEY


The crew consists of familiar names from Wayne’s albums and mixtapes including Drake, Mack Maine, Nicki Minaj, Jae Millz, Tyga and newer artists Gudda Gudda, T-Streets, Lil Twist, Lil Chuckee and Shanell, who co-wrote her boss’ latest hit, “Prom Queen.”

Wayne’s currently putting the finishing touches on his next project, his rock debut, Rebirth, now due May 19, and is also working on a number of other albums, from a Hot Boyz reunion LP to Tha Carter IV. But if his plans go right, he said the world will also see the release of a Young Money group album, a solo project by a Young Money member and a single from a second member by the end of 2009.

The collective shot a video for their buzz single “Every Girl in the World” that should be airing soon. The explicit track isn’t the official single, Wayne warned. He said the proper first single will be huge, but the world will just have to wait for that one.

“We gonna be that clique, that record company, that everybody wanna be with, everybody wanna be like,” he said. “You remember Bad Boy, you remember No Limit, you remember Cash Money. … We coming back with that. We bringing that back.”

I think Wayne's label is going to have HELLA potential, because of the serious buzz of a couple of his artists already (Drake, Nikki Minaj) and just because he is dominating mainstream hip-hop right now (other than KanYe haha). I remember when I wasn't a fan of Wayne and everyone was on his mixtapes, but when I heard The Carter III I could no longer ignore the dude.  Can't wait to see the projects from some of these artists (DRAKE haha).
