Details on Lil Wayne's upcoming Young Money compilation album have landed online and suggests the group project will be available as a CD and DVD combination.
According to new reports, the album will be titled We Are Young Money.
The debut album from hip-hop's first family will go by the title We Are Young Money, Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned. The set, featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine, Shanell and the rest of the YM crew, will be available as a deluxe edition with a CD/DVD combo. It will drop the same day as Wayne's Rebirth on December 15, Birdman recently confirmed. The LP's first offering, "Every Girl," shot up the charts over the summer, while the Lloyd-assisted "Bed Rock" is next on deck. (Rap-Up)
Wayne recently hinted at his Rebirth album being included with the Young Money project.
"[laughs] Nah, they pushing for that, I ain't really trying to give 'em that like that [with a double album,]" Weezy explained in an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. "Uh-huh, it won't be given like that. Trust me, it won't be given like that because Tha Carter IV deserves Tha Carter IV. And that's that. The Rebirth may come as a double [album] which comes with the Young Money All-Stars disc. Yeah, so it may be the Young Money All-Stars and Rebirth." (Tim Westwood TV)
Speaking with radio personality Jenny Boom Boom earlier this month, R&B singer Lloyd said Young Money could possibly be his next home.
"I think that's the question on everyone's mind," Lloyd said about the possibility of signing to Young Money. "No, I wasn't offered a deal, uhm, if anything I think about it because I'm big fans of their work and we all good friends. We've worked [together on songs] a lot in the past, you know, we broke bread together and I think a lot of fans would probably want to see that happen. I just wanna win, I just wanna be successful. I think wherever I go, I'm gonna be successful." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
Rap mogul Diddy recently compared Wayne's company to Bad Boy Entertainment in the 1990's.
"I nod my head to Wayne, I tip my hat to him," Diddy said in an interview. "I told him at the BET Awards. I said, 'You doing the new generation of Bad Boy. You're doing what we did back in '94. That's really creating a movement.' I tip my hat to him, but now I gotta watch him because he's competition. But he's doing his thing. He's gone from artist to label mogul, so you have to give him his respect." (MTV)
We Are Young Money is due in stores Tuesday, December 15th.
