Young Money Entertainment

Young Money Entertainment, simply known as Young Money, is an American record label and group founded in 2003 by Lil Wayne. The label is an imprint of Cash Money Records, which is distributed by Universal. Cortez Bryant was originally the president of YM, but Mack Maine took over in 2009 so that Tez could focus more on managing Young Money artists: Lil Wayne, Drake, Chanel West Coast, and Lil Twist. Since 2003, Young Mula has been on a steady rise to the top of hip-hop, starting from the streets of New Orleans to signing some of the biggest names in music.

The label will be known to the masses mainly through the compilation album, We Are Young Money, which was released in 2009. It spawned three big singles: “Every Girl“, “Bed Rock” and “Roger That“, all of which helped the album to reach Gold within 5 months of being released. YM also went on a tour across America to promote their new album, as well as the individual artists from the group.

Since the release of We Are Young Money, each individual artist has been steady in making their move into the main market. Drake was the first from Young Money, excluding Weezy F Baby, to enter the charts at #1 with his debut album Thank Me Later in 2010. This was followed closely by label-mate Nicki Minaj a few months later with the release of her debut album, Pink Friday.

In 2014, Young Mula released their second compilation called Young Money: Rise Of An Empire. The first single from the album was “We Alright“, which helped the world get to know Euro. The other single from the project was by the artists Lil Wayne, Tyga, and Nicki Minaj on a record titled “Senile“.
