With the new Young Money: Rise Of An Empire tracklisting floating online, SOHH recently spoke to group member Shanell aka SnL to find out what fans can expect from the crew's second collaborative release.
In Shanell's perspective, the new album will separate itself from 2009's We Are Young Money simply based off the fact the YMCMB roster has expanded.
"You know what's so crazy is I haven't even heard the whole thing yet," Shanell playfully told SOHH referring to the new LP. "I got a couple records on there. There's some different people on there now that Young Money and Cash Money have expanded, so there's going to be some different voices on there. I can't wait to hear what all is on there. One of the records I have on there is called 'Catch Me At The Light' and it has Yo Gotti on there. Look for that and we just shot one of the videos for it with Euro, who is newly signed, and Baby and Wayne. That was a fun shoot. It's a new added addition to the family so hopefully it'll feel like the first one did." (SOHH)
The curvy singer also revealed what special treats are on deck for fans as they await her upcoming Nobody's B*tch 2 mixtape.
"I did 'Throwback Thursdays' where I was covering songs and I'm going to go ahead and bring that back," Shanell added. "So every week it'll be songs that I chose or songs that I've asked my Twitter followers like, 'What's a dope 90's or 80's record that you want me to do?' So I'm going to do that once a week, look out for that. It'll lead up to Nobody's B*tch 2." (SOHH)
Barring any last-minute changes, Lil Wayne's group album will come with 12 tracks.
