Hip-Hop Rumors: YMCMB Plans On Dropping 16 Albums This Year!?

All the news and rumors surrounding YMCMB and their recent signings has to make you really wonder how many artists will actually “live up to the hype” of the label once their projects get released. Can that much attention be dispersed throughout all of the projects to give them a fair shot at achieving success??? Only time will tell.

In an interview a while back, Birdman revealed, “Well, we got a big roster coming next year. Nicki’s coming out…Tyga, Twist, Bow Wow, myself, Kevin Rudolph, Jay Sean. Wayne got another album, everybody. I mean, we’re gonna drop 10 to 14 albums in the first six months of the year, so everybody’s cocked and loaded. It’s all about the music first, and everything else comes after that. It’s music with us and then whatever else.”

Well, it looks like Birdman LOWERED the anty to XXL, recently announcing his plans to drop 15+ albums this year, beginning with last week’s release of Tyga’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King which is set to debut with over 80,000 copies sold which is not a terrible look for the “Rack City” creator.

He stated, “We’re a brand and we don’t want to be categorized as one type of brand.”

Up next is Lil Twist’s Don’t Get It Twisted and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded which will both drop this spring, as will Birdman’s fifth studio album, Bigger Than Life and Bow Wow’s new project Underrated, so for the time being it’s all Rap-related for YMCMB at least until summertime.

Then you’ve got Busta Rhymes, Mystikal, newly signed artists Christiana Milian, Limp Bizkit, and the rumored signing of Ashanti. Mix that in with Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being 2 and a possible new album from Drake and it’s going to be a busy year.

How many more artists will ink with YMCMB this year, and which of their upcoming releases are you looking forward to most? Which are destined to fail? Will anyone besides Weezy, Nicki, and Drake really make any loot???? Questions!!!

  • Terrance Goodman

    N 13 bricks and tax write offs

  • Terrance Goodman

    Baby stay raping niggas for money n azz

  • busta should do well as long as he gets the spins,limp biskit may do well but dont know much abt their fan base ,but if they get a big hit they should be fine. MystiKal needs a miracle,cause i just dont see his style ever being relevant again,but shit anything can happen. Ashanti please give me a break Christian Milian please give me a break ,theyll both have to have drake and wayne on every track. R&B is looking for next young mary J,but these two aint it.  Bow Wow should have stuck with JD,and kept rapping for the ladies,now he wants to be mr swagg. 

    • what’s the diff between “mr swagg” and rappin for the ladies????

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

         lol good point lol pretty much nothing … well actually mr. swagg does rap for the gay dudes too … who else enjoys tight clothing and overseas fashion besides young boys lol 😉

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

       F mary shes more hip hop than RNB … if u ask me RnB needs a new Whitney or a new Mariah some real singers … luv mary but shes not one of them real SANGERS yes with an “A” lol 😉

  • damn i almost forgot Cory caught that gun charge.. We aint heard a peep from his team about him since. Sure dont see his name on that coming soon list… but of course birdman is…..  Guess u gotta have a serious buzz for Cash money to be in ur corner when things get a lil rough…….

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

       wtf he got hit with a gun charge ??????????????? smh

  • what a wack-ass roster! except for Busta.        @NicChaos:twitter 

  • What about gudda gudda, short dawg, jae millz

  • Reblogged this on

  • Cats need to stop pretendin’ like Wayne is the CEO over at YM. Baby and Slim are knee deep in ninja’s pockets.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

       but of course just like universal is deep in the Cash Money pockets …. one big pyramid scheme lol 😉

  • Lol Jae Millz never gonna get off the shelf

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      it is actually kind of sad 16 albums and still cant get in that mix bag …. but who knows Jae millz might be cool with his position … he might be doing alot of writing behind the scenes ….

      • Millz IS doing ALOT of writing behind the scenes…  Its obvious as Baby’s flow changed and Wayne’s changed significantly…  all thanks to who…../???  Jae Millz

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        Baby is worse than he ever been I would. Not take creddit for his verses …. I’m guessong millz came up with that “I’ll smack a bitch” line lol …… damn don’t do that to millz lol 😉


  • Yeah they know what the rest of the industry does and that is that that wonderful distibution deal they got way back when to get 85% of everything they sell is about to run out so….  sighn a bunch of artist, hurry up and put out their projects before the deal expires cuz the money they use to make will not be the same if they don’t let Universal eat they won’t have that promotional team that has been alotted to them allowing them to win as they have as of late.  So yeah, everybody’s project may see light this yr but lets see what two years from now looks like….?

    • illymac

      oh word??
      very interesting..

  • illymac

    aint nobody checking for that bubble gum pop music bullshit..
    and why is everybody afraid to say that Busta Buss sounds the same on everysong nowadays..

    I’d have a Nicki MENAGE with Ashanti and Christina Millian..

  • ladynamor

    The Industry is suffering so they are funneling loot through Cash Money. The investment groups assumes if the music comes out through Baby and Slim it will get respect from people. They assume we se Cash Money as an independent label. LOL Its like the Casino, hes the owner but NOT the real owner. Silent partners do not care if YMCMB is destroyed at the end of this venture.

  • Jay

    come on now y’all i dont care if you dislike YMCMB  you gotta respect them for what their doing

    what other label has so many rappers and almost half of them are dropping albums?

    then people say ‘oh well these rappers broke and such so they have to sign to cash money etc’

    you have shady ,hiphop indy labels,aftermath etc, all these labels thats out there and you wonder why busta rhymes pick YMCMB ? because eminem,dr.dre or whoever else doesn’t know how to promo other artists materials

    only 50 cent was successful , how come yelawolf and slaughterhouse doesn’t have a good team to promo their material ? you see with lil wayne ,slim and birdman they gonna put you’re shit out there rather you’re on a single or a remix 

    thats how a record label works what songs are slaughterhouse and yelawolf are with eminem thats on the radio,album etc? my point


    they might go bankrupt trying to buy back all them albums to make them go platinum?????
