Solid Information[edit]

Does anyone have a definitive list of anything Young Money related I can't seem to find a solid list of artists anywhere. For example: I know T Streets is mentioned in a lot of Wayne's tracks but is there anywhere showing an album of his that has the YME brand on it? Even people on YME message boards seem to have no idea who some of the artists are and I seem to hear a new name on the YME roster every day. Any links to any interviews about YME would be good too. It's hard to find any solid info anywhere, and I expect it to only get harder now that Wayne is gone.The New POP Rap artist signed to young money Cash money label in this week he nick name in the streets called " ThisCes "

Also in terms of Currency's and Wayne's personal Myspaces: I lost the links to both but Currency posted a blog about leaving and Wikipedia wouldn't allow a direct link to it as it was considered a spam link. Wayne posted a bulletin that I read second hand. So would anyone happen to have Currency's or Lil Wayne's myspace links to show as references. It's the closest thing I can think of to an actual reliable reference.

Curren$y: http://www.myspace.com/flyspitta Lil Wayne: http://www.myspace.com/lilwayne

Rappers I am almost certain are on YME: Raw D.I., Nutt Tha Kidd, Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda, Drake, Tyga, Nikki Minaj, Yung Reezy, Jae Millz

A lot of them haven't released anything yet they are just making guest appearances but soon they will either be released or will drop an album. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.15.101.147 (talk) 22:25, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Edit Request - Drake as a CURRENT Artist![edit]

Since this thing is locked... Can someone please put Drake back into the Current Artists section. He is still a member of Young Money; sources saying he was kicked out (or whatever) were just rumours that were stirring around in April and they have been officially negated by Drake and Lil Wayne themselves. This is a FACT!

If you need sources, here's a couple.. http://www.sohh.com/2011/04/drake_nixes_young_money_removal_gossip_a.html http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1661278/drake-denies-leaving-young-money-during-lil-wayne-tour-stop.jhtml

Edit request from Hikko, 27 July 2011[edit]


The Young Money artist list is erroneous, and should be updated. Specifically, Drake is a part of Young Money, and always has been--the article reporting he quit the label was either an April Fools joke, or a complete fabrication.

Young Money's website, http://www.weareyoungmoney.com , lists the following artists as part of their lineup

Lil Chuckee T-Streetz Lil Twist Tyga Jae Millz Gudda Gudda Shanell Nicki Minaj Drake Mack Maine Lil Wayne

Additionally, this news story, with an interview from Drake (http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1661278/drake-denies-leaving-young-money-during-lil-wayne-tour-stop.jhtml) refutes the claim that Drake left the record label.

This article is so terrible.[edit]

There seems to be a problem with the section called "Albums released on label". And there shouldn't be an edit request at the end. It should be on this talk page. Ian Streeter (talk) 11:59, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I don't believe that Young Money (group) is a distinct enough entity from Young Money Entertainment (the label) to warrant its own article, especially not a low-quality orphaned one, and I don't see how it is possible to maintain two separate articles without significant overlap. --Bongwarrior (talk) 23:22, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

  • I Agree with the merge. There is no "Young Money (group)". They release their albums as a label, such as Ruff Ryders did with Ryde or Die, Maybach Music Group with Self Made and GOOD Music with Cruel Summer. User:1Sire (talk) 16:04, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Edit request from mc, 24 February 2012[edit]

Young money should not redirect to Young Money Entertainment since Young money refers to anyone who was originally poor or middle class that becomes successful later in life. Oftentimes used to describe popular rappers as opposed to old money. (people whose family has had money for one or more generations.)

T-Pain Is a Part of Young Money[edit]

Orphaned references in Young Money Entertainment[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Young Money Entertainment's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "riaa":
