Teen Pop Star Austin Mahone Joins YMCMB

Austin Mahone and Birdman

There’s a new addition to the YMCMB family. Teen pop sensation Austin Mahone has joined Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne at the label.

Birdman welcomed the 17-year-old singer to the fold. “congrat chase records and AUSTIN MAHONE WELCOME to tha FAMILY…YMCMBUSINESS expanding tha LABELS,” tweeted the Cash Money boss.

The YMCMB roster includes a diverse mix of artists including Tyga, Limp Bizkit, Chanel West Coast, and Asian hip-hop group Aziatix.

Mahone recently won Best New Artist at the VMAs and will release his debut album Junior Year in October.

In May, Birdman surprised many when he signed Paris Hilton to the label.

What do you think of YMCMB’s newest signee?

    @,., People are still gonna associate them whether they have something to do with them or not. They’re hardly considered real rap as it is and they go and sign a pop act and chanel west coast lol

    @NoLiesHurrrr, A label is a label. They could sign rap, pop, rock and r&b artist. Don’t they have a country artist too? It’s called expanding a brand and beating marketable. Why do you think Roc Nation have Rita Ora?

    @NoLiesHurrrr, But nobody associates Calvin Harris with J Cole or Willow Smith with Jay Electron. So you’re just hating for no reason.

    @channel_ROMAN, Except Jay Z is a living legend and him being a true rap artist is indisputable. That can’t be said for the artists on young money. Simple as that.

    Unlike Justin Bieber, Austin Mahone actually has talent. Watch these fools ruin him … white soccer moms are not going to buy his records if he’s running around with a bunch of thugs like these guys.

    @Yasmine, I agree with you. Austin does have talent and he’s WAY better than Justin Bieber, but going with YMCMB isn’t a good decision. I just HOPE he doesn’t change his image to fit the label and I HOPE he doesn’t give into peer pressure. We’ll see.

    Why are people acting like Record labels in 2013 don’t have a diverse line up. Roc Nation:
    Jay Z
    J COle
    Rita Ora
    Bridget Kelly
    Alexis Jordan
    Hugo (Asian Singer)
    Jay Electronica
    WILLOW SMITH
    K Koke
    Sugababes
    Arlissa
    CALVIN HARRIS

    BadBitch Syndrome Reply:

    @Brian, i doubt it cuz they have signed many artist b4 and only a couple of them have collaborated, Christina milian hasn’t worked with drake, tyga or nicki, neither has Chanel Westcoast.

    Only the core YMCMB family has worked together

    He’s an alright singer. Not fantastic by any means. I don’t think his career will last longer than 5 or maybe 6 years.

    They are going to make so much money off of this kid! He is the next Justin Bieber! And you guys are really stupid if you think YMCMB is just only for rappers! They need to sign every type of music genre to keep the money going, and to show they can dominate more then just one genre of music!

    A BIG JOKE

  21. BadBitch Syndrome

    YMCMB can sign whoever they want. It is a LABEL and a LABEL signs multiple types of artist, producers and writers.

    My only problem is that YMCMB has too many artist that dont get attention but then again artist like Nicki and Drake worked hard and Birdman expect every artist to work just as hard as them to get their music out.

    This is such a JOKE. Why the hell is Austin on YMCMB? It is the worst move Birdman could do.

    I think its the worst move Austin could do. They clearly don’t know how to work singers.

    [Reply]

  27. Wow

    @lexi, I agree. Poor Shanell hasn’t gotten nearly as much publicity as Drake & Nicki. She makes good music, and I always see her articles on rapup, but other than that she’s not as well known as the others I believe .

    fuxk Ymcbitches, why arent they promotin torion… I mean he can sing better than austin #fact

    Birdman did make a good move. Austin has only been in the big business for a year and he’s already close to the top! I mean, yeah, Austin is gonna be surrounded by rappers and stuff but if he EVER made the wrong move, his Mahomies would slice him in half. Everyone KNOWS Austin isn’t gonna be like JB and will work as hard as Drake and Nicki. Anyway, Austin already released 5 singles, is going to release and album, hosted the MMVAs, presented at the Billboards, won the VMAs and performed there, won a Young Hollywood, won a Radio Disney Award, became the Youth Ambassador of Trukfit, and is now part of YMCMB. A hell lot better then Justin Bieber, the BIGGEST joke of the big business.

    The biggest joke is them thinking he can dethrone Bieber. The kid might be a brat but he is definitely more talented than Austin. I don’t see him reaching Bieber’s level of success, that happens once every couple decades. We’ll see what happens when he releases his album if he has potential or not.
