Rise of an Empire

Young Money extends its reign with its second compilation Rise of an Empire. In advance of the March 11 release date, the cover art has hit the net. The ominous red artwork shows a moon and clouds with a castle in the distance.

The follow-up to 2009′s We Are Young Money features the single “We Alright” with Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Euro, as well as “Senile” with Tyga, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne.

Drake’s “Trophies” and Nicki Minaj’s “Lookin Ass Ni**a” are also expected to make the cut, along with contributions from Christina Milian, Lil Twist, and Shanell.

“There’s nothing like it when the whole family gets together in the studio,” said Wayne. “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.”
