These days, Lil Wayne may not be too pleased with the label he's signed to, Cash Money, but he still seems to be focused on the one that he runs. Weezy proved as much this week, with the signing of a new artist to an already hearty Young Money roster.
The rapper uploaded a video of Stephanie Acevedo singing a cover of Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" to his official YouTube account, calling her a "newly signed Young Money artist."
It's unclear exactly when the signing took place, but it may have actually happened months ago, despite the official announcement only coming now. Acevedo posted a picture of her and Tunechi together on Instagram back in October, and followed that up the next month with one of her rocking a YM chain.
According to Billboard, she's a native of Miami of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent, and has a background not only in singing, but also modeling.
The news comes just days after Wayne's manager, Cortez Bryant, came to his defense, saying he had "carried Cash Money on his back." Those comments came after the rapper went public in December with his displeasure with Birdman and the label, saying the delays on his album Tha Carter V were out of his control.
Expanding Young Money, though, still appears to be squarely in his control.
