Rap-Up TV: Mack Maine Talks New Lil Wayne and Drake Albums

2013 is shaping up to be another big year for YMCMB. In the months ahead, the label will release new albums from Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay Sean, Bow Wow, Mystikal, Busta Rhymes, and a Young Money compilation. Young Money president Mack Maine briefed us on some of the upcoming projects at Cash Money’s 4th Annual Pre-Grammy Party over the weekend.

Following Tyga’s Hotel California, Lil Wayne will drop I Am Not a Human Being II on March 26. “It’s lyrically insane,” Mack told Rap-Up TV. “When he does the I Am Not a Human Being, he actually taps into a different part of his brain where he just talks out of his mind and out of this world. Just expect him being Wayne, but more edgy, saying what he wants, a lot of fun, a lot of high energy.”

He also explained how the Kanye West-designed cover art came together. “We don’t have a Kanye track on there, so we improvised and we got a cover from him,” he said. “He did 2 Chainz’ cover [Based on a T.R.U. Story], and we liked 2 Chainz’ cover… Kanye’s great, he’s brilliant.”

Drake’s third album Nothing Was the Same will arrive this summer. “He’s on the same pace as he always is to drop a classic. He’s like 10 songs in,” shared Mack. “Knowing him, that’s only like 4 songs, he probably won’t keep 6 of them. He’s a perfectionist though.”

Also on the slate is another Young Money compilation. While they’ve only recorded one song so far, he’s looking to get the crew in the studio for more. “I’m trying to get some dates where we can all lock in.”

    Its sad because, Lil chuckee, shanel, lil twist & j-millz been signed for Years!& yet he didn’t mention them! smh #RipToThierAlbumsEverComingOut

    Will you buy a Lil chukee, shanel, lil twist or jae millz album because no one else will. Tell them to create their own buzz like Drake, Tyga and Nicki did. Wayne can throw you but so many tracks to help you be relavent. FYI he has mulitple tracks with all of them.

    I’m honestly waiting to hear mystikal come back with a good album because I’ve always liked his music since he was with No Limit. So that’s who I’m hyped about, but of course I look forward to Drake and Waynes albums. I’m just glad to see Mystikal bring some hype and funk to YMCMB. So I’m ready to hear his new project.


  4. D.kellz

    I am looking forward to the new Mystikal project simply because I have always been his fan since his No Limit days way back and I know he will have some new funky beats and lyrics being with YMCMB now. So I can not wait to hear what he has and also Drake and Wayne as well but I really look forward to Mystikal. Shake Ya Ass But Watch Ya Self lol….



    Go home.

    Im a YMCMB Fan, since ive been collecting albums i wanted to get them all, and i always couldn’t stand push backs, but you know, once they finally release there always great, and i know they gotta take there time, but when it gets to the point where they do 5 push backs, its kind of ridiculous, for example, ive been waiting on Lil Twist, since that “Little Secret” song with Bow Wow, and then 4 singles & 3 years later, nothing, now Lil Twist keeps tweeting “Contact” and ive been counting down, its been a month since he said he would release that song and nothing, first he was waiting for fans to make a pic, then what else is the hold up ?

    i also want Shanell to take over this year too, shes like the main female singer of the group, and i hope people agree with me when i say, Mixtapes get you no where, she needs to get that music out for everyone to hear, and stop being Underground,


  8. Avon

    Jae Millz, Lil Chuckee, T-Streetz, Short Dawg, Cory Gunz, Gudda Gudda, i haven’t heard a single thing from any of them, WHY? Mixtapes, they all need albums, and i know its a 3 Year process but most of them have been doing this since 2005, YMCMB needs to shine the light on there other singers/rappers, they have soo many artist and only like 5 of them are up there. im rutting for them all to be successful cuz i know YMCMB makes stars
