Photos of Baby donning tattoos of YMCMB’s Rich Gang and Young Thug surfaced online a few days ago.
We all know that Birdman loves to get tattoos. Recently, the Cash Money CEO added another piece of ink to pay homage to his crew and the hottest Atlanta rapper in the game. Baby, who showed off his latest ink work on Instagram, got a face tattoo that reads “RG” to signify his new management team Rich Gang. He then got a finger tattoo with the letters “C-M-Y-M-Y-S-L” — an acronym for Young Money Cash Money Stoner Life. So does this mean that Young Thug and Cash Money are officially a team?

Recently, Young Thug dished out his respect for YMCMB leader Lil Wayne and explained how much he molded his style.
“Wayne, Wayne and Wayne. The fact that the n*gga got 100 M’s and he still rap everyday, it’s amazing,” Thug said in an interview. “Rich Gang to the death. Big shout out to [Gucci Mane]. He was a big help to my career. But, I’m with Rich Gang and that’s how we gone turn it up… [Cash Money’s Baby] is like a real father figure.” (The FADER)
Recent reports suggested Thug’s current label status rested with fellow Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane.
However, Billboard has learned that Young Thug is still signed to 1017 Brick Squad/Atlantic. (Atlantic, which is working the single to radio, asked Billboard to credit the song to Asylum/Atlantic on the charts.) When asked to clarify the rapper’s status, an Atlantic representative says, “We are extremely excited about Young Thug but we do not comment on artist contracts.” (Billboard)
