Cash Money Records boss Birdman is proud-proud about the leveling up his protégé is doing these days. Baby hit up social media to salute Young Thug on securing a deal with YSL.

Over the past few days, the Louisiana native hit up Instagram with salutations to Thugger.

Heading into the weekend, Thug announced his YSL label had officially teamed up with Birdman’s Cash Money.

Back in 2016, buzz developed about Young Thug having his own YSL record company.

Young Thug’s label–Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment–has given the rapper an imprint called YSL Records for his own artists. In a Snapchat story earlier this week (reupped to YouTube by DJ Akademiks), Thugger gave a virtual tour of his new office, with a fresh new logo on the wall, and a glimpse of a team meeting. Kevin Liles, 300’s co-founder, is shown giving a pep talk, praising Thug’s vision: “Always standing 300 with us. Him starting a new venture is going to take us to a different mindset…He’s not just an artist in this particular case.” (SPIN)
