G.O.O.D. Music's Cyhi The Prynce appears to have taken note of today's buzz surrounding Cash Money/Young Money inking rap-metal crew Limp Bizkit by questioning their quality of work compared to his team's.
Taking to Twitter, Cyhi compared the Birdman and Lil Wayne-led YMCMB to G.O.O.D. Music and Roc-A-Fella.
"To me YMCMB is mid and Rocafella/GoodMusic is kush you sell more pounds of mid but which one would you rather smoke #imjustsayin," he tweeted Friday (February 24). (Cyhi The Prynce's Twitter)
Friday morning, Limp Bizkit's leader Fred Durst announced his new label home.
"The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!!" Cash Money Limp Bizkit," he tweeted Friday.
"Rock sh*t doesn't rock anymore! They say the whole game done went pop so I'm back in this ho! #CMLB" (Fred Durst's Twitter)
Following the recent Cash Money signings of rap veterans Busta Rhymes and Mystikal, "Why Stop Now" producer Sham "Sak Pase" Joseph spoke to SOHH about YMCMB's radio dominance.
"A lot of people are very indifferent about that decision," Sham told SOHH, referring to Busta's recent signing to Cash Money," but I think from a business aspect, it's got to be very attracting toward Google [Music] that Busta Rhymes has access to the biggest artists in the game right now. The reality of it is 70 percent of radio, I promise you, is controlled by Young Money. I don't see why there's a big issue. They're winning, so, I think a lot of people feel since he's been in the game for so long and has done so many things for hip-hop, he probably could have started his own label and do x, y and z. But they're a huge machine that's winning." (SOHH)
In November, Birdman cited his reliance on artistic freedom for making Cash Money a winning team.
"Whatever they bring to the table, whatever their vision is, [my role is] just to back it up and let them be the artist that they want to be and we support what they want to do," Birdman said in an interview. "We never was [the type] to try to tell no [artist] how to do music, that's not what we're about. We like to let an artist be an artist and we support what they want to do." (MTV)
