Busta Rhymes is making power moves. A day after dropping his new single “Why Stop Now” with Chris Brown, the fast-paced spitter has officially confirmed his signing to Cash Money Records. He joined Birdman in a video to announce that he is the newest member of the YMCMB family.

“This whole experience that’s getting ready to happen is probably going to be one of the most defining moments in hip-hop and probably in entertainment overall,” said Busta. “This alliance with the Conglomerate and YMCMB and me and Bird and Wayne, the whole family, is something that’s been a long time coming because we just always had a respect level and a genuine friendship for a very long time.”

His relationship with Birdman began 10-12 years ago when they bought pricey whips to compete in car shows. “It’s something that’s been brewing for a long time and now people gon’ really get to see it come to fruition in a whole ‘nother kind of way,” he added. “This is a golden moment personally and I think it’s a golden moment for hip-hop.”

The Cash Money CEO explained the decision behind the signing. “You legendary,” Baby told Busta. “But what we have to do today ain’t got nothing to do with what you did yesterday. I’m looking at the new music. The talent always been there. … I’m looking for big moves, big things all the time, every time.”
