With buzz heating up the Internet over Atlanta rapper Young Thug joining the YMCMB team, Young Money executive Mack Maine has offered some clarity into the situation.
According to the Mack Maine, Thugga is a part of the family but has not necessarily signed on any dotted lines.
Today Mack Maine spoke on the status of Cash Money and Thug for Vlad TV, saying that Thug has been adopted by the label. He goes on to expand upon this by saying that he’s been working closely with him. He makes sure not to outright confirm a signing, so we’ll have to wait just a little longer to see what transpires.

Recent reports revealed Young Thugga had 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 rap star 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)
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)
