In an even bigger way than Kim Kardashian and her naked photo shoot, Lil Wayne broke the internet yesterday afternoon when he revealed some MAJOR cracks in what the world thought was one of the most solid foundations in music, Cash Money Records. For nearly two decades, Weezy and Birdman have worked side-by-side, building the Cash Money empire which eventually spawned into multiple empires, including Young Money Records and the newly-formed, Rich Gang.
While Wayne has done his own thing with Young Money for years now, it’s always been alongside the Numba 1 Stunna, combining the two into one phrase with YMCMB. (Which stands for Young Money/Cash Money Billionaires.) Since signing under Birdman in the late 90s, Wayne has become one of the biggest rappers in the world, and has gone on to launch the careers of fellow superstars Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga and more. Both Tune and Baby have always expressed their love for each other no matter what, but it seems like times most certainly have changed. Could Birdman’s focus on Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan as “Rich Gang” be the issue?
