Weeks away from Young Money's highly-anticipated Rise of an Empire album, the project's cover art has surfaced online.
Instead of featuring Lil Wayne or other star-studded group members, the project only shows a castle surrounded by clouds.
On the heels of the release of the street single, "We Alright", Young Money unveils the cover art for their forthcoming compilation project, Rise Of An Empire. The follow-up to 2009?s We Are Young Money, the release will feature the imprint's large stable of artists including Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj as well as Tyga, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christine Milian, Jae Millz, Cory Gunz, Gudda Gudda, Euro and others.

Heading into the weekend, the group's new "We Alright" music video premiered online.
Before Young Money release their new album 'Rise Of An Empire' next month, they unleash the official video to the promo single 'We Alright' starring Birdman, Lil Wayne, and rising artist Euro. The over 5-minute long track is produced by S-X. Directed by Colin Tilley, the visual for 'We Alright' features plenty of cameos from other Young Money members, including names like Christina Milian, Mack Maine, Lil Twist, Detail, Gudda Gudda, and Cortez Bryant.

Buzz about the crew's long-awaited second offering heated up the Internet last month.
It's about to be a family reunion. Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and the rest of Young Money are coming together for a new compilation. Young Money: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up to 2009's gold-selling compilation We Are Young Money, will arrive on March 11 featuring an all-star lineup including Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Milian, and some of the label's up-and-coming artists.

Young Money head Lil Wayne issued a statement following the album announcement.
"There's nothing like it when the whole family gets together in the studio. YMCMB is stronger than ever, and everybody was truly on fire. We're all blessed to be a part of this incredible Empire as it continues to thrive. I can't wait for what's next. Keep watching." (Statement)
