Somewhere, the ever-itchy hands of Cash Money kingpin Birdman are rubbing themselves into a fury with thoughts of all the money to be made over the next year or so. After the YMCMB imprint dropped top-selling albums from Lil Wayne and Drake in 2011, the team recruited Busta Rhymes (who killed the feature game this year) and now, recently freed Louisiana rapper Mystikal.
Birdman recently confirmed that he had made Mystikal part of the fam.
"It is an honor to get the opportunity to work with Mystikal, as we have a long history together. He is a great artist and his talent, combined with our hard work and strong team, is going to result in some of the best music of his career. We are expecting great work from Mystikal. Slim and I already have him in the studio working on his first album for Cash Money."(Statement)
It seems like Birdman is snatching up any rapper that at one time had a major deal. The acquisition of Busta and now Mystikal could be flipped into a cool collabo album between the two: Anyone remember the song they did together back in the day?
No? Ok. F*ck it, me either then. Anyway, check out Mystikal's new track "Hot December" f/ Birdman and Lil Tunechi. Do you think this is the beginning of a fruitful union between YMCMB and Mystikal?
In other news, as if V-Nasty dissing David Banner wasn't random enough, Waka Flocka Flame has recenlty said some not-so-kind words about fellow artist Wiz Khalifa:
"Yo [Kay] Slay, how you feel about these rap n*ggas with all that hype man," Waka Flocka asked in an interview. "They ain't got no swag when they really, they hyped their way to the top. [I'm behaving myself lately.] Me too. I ain't even gonna lie. I ain't even gonna lie, right. ... I feel like they don't respect nothing but the real. You gotta. Wiz. Wiz. [laughs]" (Street Heat TV)
SOHH Watcha Think -- Is Waka right: Has Wiz built a career off of hype alone, or has his music brought him much of the success he enjoys today?
