SOHH Whatcha Think: Busta Rhymes Joins YMCMB Fam: Boss Move Or Grand Struggle? [Click Here & Speak]

They say if you can't beat 'em -- join 'em. Well, YMCMB spitter's Lil Wayne and Drake had two of the top-selling albums of 2011, and along with Nicki Minaj the trio are some of the biggest names in Hip Hop music at this point.
Busta Rhymes seems to have caught a second wind of sorts. Over the past year or so, his flow has been on some mega-man, too fast, too furious sh*t and he's basically made a name for himself among the crowd too young to remember "Woo-Hah". And although I'm convinced he loses a bit of life force every time he shoots out one of those super raps, it has put the spotlight back on his career. The question now is, will a union with Cash Money result in an actual album? Or just a few features alongside Lil Twist and other YM artists?
Alot of labels that gain ground tend to snach up artists left and right. Remember when G-Unit signed M.O.P.? Or what about Murder Inc. signing that white pop singer chick? Even the once-mighty Roc-A-Fella was signing anyone out of Philly wearing a throwback jersey back in the early 2000's.
So there's no telling what will happen in this Busta situation, the future lies in Birdman's infinitely rubbing hands. One hunnit.
SOHH Watcha Think -- Is this Busta/YMCMB situation a great move, or just a spark that will soon fizzle out?
