Birdman is all about expansion. On Saturday, the Cash Money boss hopped on Twitter and revealed that the Game has signed to his multi-tiered YMCMB roster, which already includes the likes of Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Paris Hilton, Austin Mahone and EDM act the Stafford Brothers.
So who will the #1 Stunna sign next? Hint, they’re from New York.
“Sh– just startin 2014 a Movie ahead of tha Game we just sign some Great NY.Rappers connectin tha dots Richgang YMCMB,” Birdman tweeted on Sunday.
“I just want to expand the roster and me and [DJ Khaled] been on that banging heads about that and we got some artists that’s from New York that we’re gonna put on the team that we’re working with and we’re excited about it,” Birdman said in September when he appeared on “RapFix Live” alongside Paris Hilton.
“For me, I’m attracted to talent and some of these New York rappers I’ve always wanted to work with and I think I might finally get my chance to work with ‘em and we’re excited about it,” he continued, promising that he would make an official announcement later this year.
For those paying attention, the Game signing shouldn’t come as that big of a surprise. Birdman has always loved the Los Angeles rap star, and The Documentary MC has often spoke about signing with Cash Money after he fulfilled his recording contract with Interscope.
Birdman made no hint as to which “great NY rappers” he signed, but last October, The LOX-member Sheek Louch revealed exclusively to MTV News that he, Jadakiss and Styles P will be putting out their third group LP with Swizz Beatz. DJ Khaled will handle executive production duties. Given Khaled’s partnership with Cash Money for his own We the Best label, a LOX signing is not far-fetched.
“Lil Wayne tried to sign us, Puff tried to re-sign us and paint that picture over, we done been in mother—ers’ living rooms and talkin’ business,” he told us of the trio’s business dealings. “The meeting we just had with Swizz and Khaled about executive producing this project was the one that grabbed us and we’re gonna give y’all some real, real big records.”
