[artist id=”1873941″]Omarion[/artist]’s stint on [artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist]’s Young Money Records was almost as short as a Usain Bolt 100-meter dash.
Last week, Lil Wayne introduced the fan-favorite performer during a California stop of Young Money Presents: The America’s Most Wanted Music Festival . Wayne said Omarion was on his burgeoning label — which also includes Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga — and the singer seemed excited to be down with the crew. He even moonwalked to Michael Jackson music onstage.
On Wednesday, a record called “I Get It In” featuring Wayne and O hit the Net, and the machine seemed to be rolling smoothly. The euphoria hit the breaks abruptly, however. Later that night, Wayne’s trusted crew member Mack Maine hit Twitter and wrote that O was off the label and the song with Wayne was a leak and not official. Mack did wish Omarion good luck.
Rumors swirled that the star of hit singles such as “Ice Box” and “Touch” had been dropped because he leaked his song with Wayne. The former B2K member countered that rumor on Thursday (August 20), clarifying the matter on Twitter.
“I didn’t get dropped,” he tweeted. “I wish Wayne and all of [Young Money] good luck for their future. There are no hard feelings, business is business.”
Omarion’s rep said the singer was unavailable for comment. Meanwhile, Cash Money and Young Money reps were traveling to a Denver tour date and were unable to be reached at press time.
O’s good friend Bow Wow was just signed to Cash Money earlier this week. The pair released a joint LP, Face Off, together in 2007.
