The Game Signs with Cash Money Records

Game

Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne have a new labelmate. The Game has officially joined the YMCMB family as the label’s newest signee.

Birdman made the announcement on Twitter. “S/O 2MY@thegame Westcoast makit Official.RICHGANG.YMCMBusine$$,” tweeted the Cash Money CEO.

The Game saluted his new team. “@BIRDMAN5STAR time to close the door on these niggas !!!! R$CHGANG,” he responded.

The Compton rapper, 33, was previously signed to Interscope Records, where he released five No. 1 albums including his 2005 debut The Documentary, which was released in conjunction with G-Unit Records.

When previously asked about a potential deal with Cash Money, Game told Rap-Up TV, “I’m considering money… And I would like it to be cash.”

Earlier this week, he released his mixtape OKE and is working on the follow-up to 2012′s Jesus Piece.

    1. WHY?
    2. We’re still waitin’ for Busta and Mystikal’s albums…who’s to say they won’t push back Game’s too?
    3. Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz, Shanell, Lil Chuckee and T-Streets need to ask for their release ASAP.
    4. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!

    sigh….everybody gotta pay they rent, so i understand. I however will just stick to the first 3 albums, LAX especially.

    @Bx, totally agree. I’m more of a doctors advocate fan but first 3 are the only good ones. Red wasn’t bad, only handful of tracks and a shit load of fillers. Jesus piece was rubbish. Absolute rubbish. Like a mixtape.

    Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Wayne are the only three artist keeping that label relevant. WHY bring such embarrassment to these ambitious individuals and not invest the right amount of time, money, and marketing into their careers? Birdman somehow thinks that by stacking artist on top of artist, that it’s a good look, well it’s not! Once Nicki, Wayne, and Drake is said and done, YMCMB will be through with unless they can find some artist who could fill the shoes of those three legendary artist. But yeah……

    @Rolltider, the hate is strong in you! Nicki has already surpassed every female rapper in a short period of time, so she already on top!

    @Rolltider, She’s already in a space and a lane where no female rapper has been. These past 2 and a half eras we’ve seen her grow and change and now she’s got the whole watching for her next move. #OnlyRapB!tchOnTheForbesList

    Jonathan Reply:

    @Rolltider, I understand you may just be a hater and I don’t have the energy nor the time to even list Minaj’s legendary accomplishments, but sir being the first rap star in the history of American Idol to sit at the judging panel isn’t legendary? Being the first female emcee to make it onto Forbe’s Cash King’s list isn’t legendary? Being the first female emcee to have 1st week album sales 375k for her first album since Lauren Hill? Being the first female emcee to head and sale out arenas across the country isn’t legendary? Being the first female emcee to become on of the most respected business woman in the music industry isn’t legendary? Being the most followed rap star in the world isn’t legendary? Being the first female emcee with two successful fragrances isn’t legendary? Being the most charted female emcee in the history of Billboard, only needing a No.1 hit single to put the icing on the cake isn’t legendary? Being the first female emcee whose second album 1st week sale which was 253k only competes with your 1st album 1st week sales isn’t legendary? Being the most decorated female emcee in terms of accolades and awards having won 70 and been nominated for over 125 in just 3 short years of being mainstream, only needing a Grammy to put the icing on the cake isn’t legendary? Going to google and typing “the queen of rap or hip hop” and immediately her bio pops up isn’t legendary? Yeah.. but who honestly keeps up right? You’re right, Nicki Minaj will never be legendary. Lmao FOH

  6. Oh

    This is why nobody respects Young Money Cash Money as a label. They sign any, and everybody. They literally have the whole music industry on their label and STILL none of their artist can sell like Rocafella or Warner Bro artist….

    [Reply]

    Phil Reply:

    @Oh, are you crazy ? they sell more than Roc Nation. No one can touch Wayne and Drake in terms of sales these days.

    [Reply]

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @Phil, are YOU crazy? jay z has the second best selling album of 2013. not to mention, the majority of artists on the roc are either touring successfully or have music on the charts (see beyonce, rihanna, kanye, jay z & j cole). the only artists still in the stable are rita ora & brigete kelley versus the 500 artists that YMCM signs (busta, mystikal, chanel, etc). #GOODbye

    channel_ROMAN Reply:

    @karamelkisses, Beyoncé is not in Roc Nation, neither is Rihanna. Beyoncé works for Columbia and is managed by herself. Rihanna works for Def Jam and is managed by Roc. But she’s not on their label.

    Well at least he was smart enough to sign under cash money not young money or anything under that, this means he gets te most money with his deal. I’m sure he will become a priority over the other artists other than drake and maybe Wayne. I’m interested to see how his next album will sound and do note charts…..

    [Reply]

  11. JUST ME

    i 2nd that he should have went with Grand Hustle. cash money/ymcb is more for the new generation of folks that like the same old tired artist on every other song

    @JUST ME, Grand Hustle is full of flops.

    This is why I can’t be mad at drake for doing his own thing. I feel ymcmb had a nice roster of fresh new talent and then they fuck up the brand by bringing in all these washed out artist. They need to hire me th come clean up that label. Christina Milian, Paris, bow, mystical, busta, shanell all of them would be gone. Bring on new talent please .
