So we know how much Lil Wayne helped the careers of Drake and Nicki Minaj. They also both attribute him with helping them become 2 of the biggest stars in the world but now it’s a question of loyalty. Wayne wants to leave Cash Money and he also wants to take his label Young Money and all the artists signed to him which includes the biggest names on the imprint, Drake and Nicki.
According to TMZ:
Drake, Nicki, Christina Milian, and Lil Twist are all signed to Wayne’s label. Mack Maine is also a YME artist, and the label’s president.
Even though Birdman was integral in molding Drake and Nicki’s careers … we’re told Weezy believes the superstars should go with him because their contracts are with YME.
Clouding the issue is the fact … Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of the Young Money artists. Most likely the matter will have to be settled in court, but we’re told Wayne’s intent is clear — he’s not leaving without his crew.
We all remember the Roc-A-Fella break up where the artists had to choose between going with Jay-Z or with Damon Dash and it wasn’t a pretty picture. Kanye chose to stay with Jay even though Damon Dash was the one who initially brought him to the label. Will this be the Roc-A-Fella breakup of 2015? Will this be the end of a record empire and end with broken friendships and loyalties between artists and mentors?
So the question is should Nicki and Drake go with Wayne or stay with Baby?
