Young Money boss Lil Wayne wants his protégés to win, win, win and win big. The rap veteran has discussed the recent launch of his Young Money Sports management company.
Wayne credited the Young Money launch on the close-knit similarities between musicians and athletes.
“We all cut from the same cloth, and it’s just that simple. We all from the same type of place, and we all like the same type of things. We all wish we were athletes. They all wish they were rappers…Honestly, it was something that almost felt like it was something I was supposed to do. I also understood that you can actually help these people, these athletes, you can help off them off the field or off the court. Once I figured that out, that’s what I wanted to do. … A career’s not promised but once you sign with me, my job is to make sure you’re successful. So success is promised over here.” (Bleacher Report)
This week, rap veteran Master P talked about Wayne’s publicized Birdman and Cash Money feud.
“I think they’re eventually going to work it out because they’re hurting theyself,” he says. “They both losing money. I think Lil Wayne is probably one of the biggest artists in the world. Nobody’s gonna be able to take that away from him. I think that Baby built something from Louisiana and people got to respect that. Together they made something powerful. Now they just gotta figure out how to go separate ways with it. I’ve been working with Lil Wayne. I’ve got another record with him. Shout out to little homie. I definitely want to see him win.” (HHDX)
New reports claim Rap-A-Lot Records head J Prince is going to help Wayne out in the legal feud.
He tells TMZ, “Where [Wayne] is weak, I am strong. He has gained an ally, and together we will get back all money owed to him and my son off the Drake albums.” If you didn’t know … his son, Jas Prince, discovered Drake and set him up with Weezy and Young Money. James adds, “I witnessed the hard work that went into Drake’s career and for Cash Money to try and take something that isn’t theirs to take, does not sit well with me and family around the world.” (TMZ)
This week, Wayne responded to backlash he received for discussing his YMCMB issues on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” sports show.
