Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj Featured on New Young Money Comp
By Jeremy D. Larson
Lil Wayne‘s very own Young Money label will follow up the late-2009 showcase comp We Are Young Money with round two this year. The album is properly titled Young Money: Rise of an Empire, due out March 11 on Young Money/Cash Money, and will feature Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and many noblemen and women.
The rise of the YMCMB empire is an apt title, considering that Minaj and Drake only held on a fraction of rap cachet in 2009 as they do today. The 2014 paddock will also feature Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Milian, and new label signee Euro.
The full tracklist has not yet leaked, but we do know that it will include Drake’s victory lap “Trophies” as well as a new track from Wayne, Birdman and Euro called “We Alright.”
