Young Money Readies ‘Rise of an Empire’ Compilation for March

Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne

It’s about to be a family reunion. Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and the rest of Young Money are coming together for a new compilation.

Young Money: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up to 2009’s gold-selling compilation We Are Young Money, will arrive on March 11 featuring an all-star lineup including Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Milian, and some of the label’s up-and-coming artists.

The first single, the potent and powerful banger “We Alright,” features Lil Wayne, Birdman, and YMCMB’s newest signee Euro, a rapper from Providence, Rhode Island.

Rise of an Empire will also include Drake’s victorious anthem “Trophies,” which he recently performed on “Saturday Night Live.”

“This compilation is a very special release for the label,” said Young Money COO Cortez Bryant. “We Are Young Money helped launch the careers of our first generation of acts with Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga. Even though we’ve been honored with accolades as a company, our hunger hasn’t diminished or dwindled. We’re hungrier than ever, and we’re still building.”

Young Money CEO Lil Wayne added, “There’s nothing like it when the whole family gets together in the studio. YMCMB is stronger than ever, and everybody was truly on fire. We’re all blessed to be a part of this incredible Empire as it continues to thrive. I can’t wait for what’s next. Keep watching.”

    Hopefully after this compilation some of the hidden artists on the YMCMB roster will step up. The whole team has the potential to dominate music. Especially Shanell, I need another Shut Up & Listen from her!!

    Drake is the only one in YM I’m a fan of, and the only reason I’ll even give this a listen. Now if we get a 2nd GOOD Music album or a TDE album then I’ll be excited.

    But for real, sit down. Lil Wayne and Drake?! Weezy might not be the most talented of the group, but he is a great business man. Nicki is suffering despite her talent because she started becoming a gimmick. Drake is one of the most talented and popular artists in the game.

    didn’t they learned from Rich Gang? “We Alright” is barely any good so I don’t think this will end alright. Also, how dare they take advantage of Nicki’s hype. I hope she isn’t in this joke.

    @Andy, why r u complaining DUMBASS ? This album can only be positive for Nic. SMH u guys need to THINK.

    Andy Reply:

    @nicko, how really? If she’s in the next single and it comes before her single it’s gonna take some “hype-points” unless is really a banger which it obviously won’t

    Andy Reply:

    @Zack, but who are you? I don’t recall a rapper or a critic called Zack so who you think you are to point out who has talent and who doesn’t? You’re a nobody. And just to make it clear, she has mad hype and talent but reasoning with you is wasting time, ignorant.

    This need to be like the first YM album and NOT like the Rich Gang album which only featured 1 Nicki Minaj track.

    If they want this album to sell well then I would want a Nicki x Drake track kinda like Roman’s Revenge where they go back and forth
    Shanell song that really showcases her voice
    Wayne needs to not talk about pussy and everything will be alright

  19. NICKI MINAJ

    Rich Gang was NOT a YMCMB compilation. Idk how this is going to work being that there’s 4645464523 people on that roster from the first generation. But I’m only in it for Nicki , Drake, Christina Milliany, Tyga and possibly Cory Gunz. Chanell Westcoast who? Austin Mahone who?

    TBH it’s only going to benefit Nicki.

    Clearly Nicki on Tapout didnt help the rich gand album sell. Shouldnt they have learned from that last flop?

    @Speechless, Tap Out is GOLD, the ONLY certified single from that album. now shut the fck up retard

    @lily, Righttttttttttttttttttttttt.. Tapout even charted on billboard sir & has sold past 500,000 units.. Move around with the hate..

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @lily, he said “Rich Gang album sell”. Everybody knows Tapout was a hit in 2013, but RG is a tremendous flop mainly because Drake and Nicki are not in the album (safe Tapout)

  22. anf1213

    Umm…I think Nicki needs to release another mixtape and re-introduce herself to the hiphop/urban market. Wayne needs to focus on signing the next generation of Young Money artist & Carter V. Drake, just keep doing your (loved NWTS), as well as Tyga..as for the rest..

    Jae Millz is dope, but should maybe find another deal.

    Corey Gunz need to stay outta trouble and get his daddy off LHHNY.

    Gudda Gudda, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Millian= WHATEVER, WHO CARES
