Weeks after Young Thug revealed fellow Southern rapper Future offered him a hefty record contract, new reports claim he has accepted a Cash Money Records deal.
According to reports, Young Thugga has now aligned himself with the growing YMCMB empire.
But he did perk up when I asked him if he officially signed to Cash Money. “Yo, is it official now? Are you signed to Cash Money?” Young Thug immediately turned away from about 50 flashing lights, searched for the dude who asked him what seemed to be the dumbest question in the world, and said, “Yeah. I signed.” Young Thug telling me he signed to Cash Money doesn’t make it 100%, but it’s the first time we’re hearing anything definitive on the matter from the dude himself. If I had more time with Thug maybe I could have asked the poignant questions. (Mass Appeal)
While he would not dig too deep into the subject, YT recently revealed Future had placed $1.5 million up for him to capitalize off of.
Last I remember you were signed to Gucci Mane’s 1017 imprint, and we’ve been hearing Freebandz lately, is that deal finished? It’s not happening yet, I don’t know if it’s gonna happen. Future said he wants to give me $1.5 million so you know how that goes. It just hasn’t happened yet. (Complex)
Thug also talked about putting in some studio time with G.O.O.D. Music head Kanye West.
But if Kanye calls and says “I want a Young Thug feature on this song” you’re there in no time, no? I mean, I went to his house and we did a couple of songs. The fact that I was [making songs] so fast amazed him too, because he doesn’t see a lot of people who rap like that. I don’t really rap with a lot of people [because] everyone raps the same way. When I first heard he wanted to know who I was and do songs, I was smiling ear to ear like a clown. (Complex)
A few weeks ago, the Southern hip-hop artist revealed an intention to partner with Future.
Young Thug talked about feeling some type of way about all the rappers freestyling over all his street bangers circulating the nation right now. He only gave a pass to Lil Wayne rapping over his beats cause that is his idol. Gucci Mane was one of the first Atlanta rappers to co-sign Young Thug so he explained to DJ Drama his relationship with Guwop and if he was signed to him. Which led to the conversation of YT not being signed to anyone and that he is about to ink the deal with Future and Bu with “Freebandz”. (ATL Night Spots)
