Cash Money Records boss Birdman has no plans of slowing down his executive decision-making after adding rap star Game to his roster and has revealed what more is to come for next year.
While not specific, Birdman hinted at some East Coast signings and a film being on deck for YMCMB.
"S/O thagame sh*t to real whtup 5 west coast whts popin RICHGANG YMCMBusine$$ http://instagram.com/p/fZP_thiZ6h/," Baby tweeted October 13.

Late Saturday night, Game revealed he was now down with the Cash Money family.
Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne have a new labelmate. The Game has officially joined the YMCMB family as the label's newest signee. Birdman made the announcement on Twitter. "S/O 2MY@thegame Westcoast makit Official.RICHGANG.YMCMBusine$$," tweeted the Cash Money CEO. The Game saluted his new team. "@BIRDMAN5STAR time to close the door on these niggas !!!! R$CHGANG," he responded. The Compton rapper, 33, was previously signed to Interscope Records, where he released five No. 1 albums including his 2005 debut The Documentary, which was released in conjunction with G-Unit Records.

Recently, Game said there was ample interest in how his next LP would be released.
"Recently, a free agent," Game said in an interview. "I was signed to Interscope for my last five albums which, of course, are all platinum and I've been taking a lot of meetings and on a lot of conference calls about my next move and I just - I haven't narrowed it down yet." ("Larry King Now")
In spring 2012, Birdman spoke on his close friend's label status.
"Game is signed to Interscope--I don't really know his situation. I don't like to get into talks with other people who are signed to other labels because I wouldn't want them n*ggas f*cking with nothing that's mine. So I show respect to whoever they with I know that I told Game, if the time come I would love to sign Game. I think he's a very talented artist. But right now he's signed with Interscope, maybe he's got another album. But when time comes, I'm gonna be there for him too." (Complex)
