Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Twista Sign with YMCMB?

It looks like YMCMB may have signed another veteran emcee to their roster. We are hearing that Chicago rapper Twista may have signed a label deal with YMCMB for his GMG label. Our sources are telling us that there was a major bidding war going on between YMCMB and Def Jam over Twista, but it looks like YMCMB may have won.

Today, Twista added more fuel to the rumor when he tweeted a photo of himself in a YMCMB hoodie, an accessory only given to YMCMB artists. Check out the photo below:

Twista is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album, The Dark Horse, and we are hearing that it may be his best work yet. Stay tuned for an announcement from YMCMB on their new signee!

  • They snatchin everyone up.  Now, who is actually gonna put out an album?

    • immackulate

      boy you aint too smart or just dumb when it comes to details LOL

      he’s didn’t sign an ARTIST deal – he signed a LABEL deal
      which means he can decide when he wants to drop

      • Ronlg1

        Jay, just because you got a label deal does not, I repeat, does NOT mean you get to come out whenever you want.  Cash Money is distributed by Universal.  There are a lot of artists under that umbrella.  It isn’t guaranteed.

      • mr84pvmorris

        he signed a label deal similar to Rick Ross…MMG is signed to Warner Bros but Ross is signed to Def Jam…Twista GMG label signs with YMCMB but as a solo artist he can still drop whatver

      • @Prescott_Racks

        cam has a artist deal with universal and past dipset/defjam label obligations that hold up features and albums including his solo work. vado has an artist deal and he’s still shelved. deals are just investors backing u if u dont meet the standards they never have to drop you. they can pay u out of ur contract leaving u wit less right more arears but on the plus side knowledge and relationships, which is why its not always about dollar signs

      • immackulate

        LABEL DEAL >>> artist deal (360)

      • mrgibson

         lol word, glad someone pointed that out.  Every established artist should have their own label situation or be independent in my opinion.  It’s scary the way that these record labels are out here trying to molest these artists. 

      • @Prescott_Racks

        u can drop it but r they gonna back u? he still has interest wit ymcmb which is what they wanted probablly for hooks/melodies labels done found their edge on mixtapes which bolsters the labelprint and artist wherever u turn and every drop or feature. all n all its probablly better than def jam,especially when it comes to touring and stayin relevant similar to stalley on gaybach music. on another note rip def jam theyve turned into the broad you use to make others step their game up when it comes to these bidding wars.

      • What up Street?  Actually I’ll give you examples of these so called label deals established artists sign with these bigger labels and they get shelved.

        Juelz Santana- Skull Gang Records?  (Def Jam)
        DMX- Bloodline Records? (Def Jam)
        Killer Mike-  Grind Time Records?(Atlantic)
        Mike Jones-  Ice Age Records?(Atlantic)
        B.G.-  Choppa City Records (Grand Hustle, Atlantic)
        I could keep going but you get it.  After these deals was signed tell me what major album they had come out besides mixtapes.  Shit, any artist can drop a mixtape when they want to.  Point is, if you not buzzin, the label is not going to pay to market and promote you. Look at 50, ain’t had a hit in years and Jimmy Iovine ain’t released shit from him. How long he been sayin his album supposed to drop. Come on bruh.

    • @Prescott_Racks

      corey gunz? that gun charge didnt get enuff pub?

  • Congrats…he deserves it. Very talented.

  • wow YMCMB aint playing nice pick up. Cant go wrong wit Twista. Dam i wanna sign to YMCMB!

    • immackulate

      • Luckey Bono

        L.A. is a real GANGSTER CITY as well , dont get it twisted , every rapper that done came out here , gotta reality check . Hollywood aint but minutes away from the hood , you aint safe nigga lol. An just cuz that L.A. gang life style is attractive to america that dont change the fact that niggas is really bout that life out here , all that gang shit is negative no matter where its from , NY , the Chi or LA LA land.

      • immackulate

        L.A. wasnt part of the convo … YMCMB and TWISTA was the focus … DONT GET IT TWISTED cuz  I pesonally know about L.A. been there 1000 times but L.A. wasn’t apart of the discussion …

      • dayleedumped

        Every city is could be “GANGSTER CITY”, theres niggaz in every hood trying to put in work. Everyone knows crazy niggaz, but you gotta realize that there is someone who will always test you, and there will always be someone more crazier than you.

    • drizzy85

      Twista not a blood hes a vice lord and been reppin dat shit since he came on the scene 

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    son is like one of dem nba niggaz…son is a free agent dat goes to squad’s and ball-out….i just hope dat they dnt stifle his originality like gunz….ymcmb is crazy commercial…dey dnt check for the hood nor real hi-hop anymore….there basicially glorified pop stars…..look at there roster…nicki(pop)…faggot aubrey(pop)..tyga(double pop)…weezy(alternative/pop/love singer)….they have made an changing of the guard and went pop cuz dats were da money is and dats whut the bigger heads want to turn hip-hop culture into(bigger heads are all lily white)…so i hope twista continues to keep it real…his track record says he will do just dat…but i dnt trust those in charge in ymcmb….i see them all as uncle tom’s or better yet those who are quick to sellout there race for finacial utopia

    • BoldSpice

      How is it selling out? If that’s what fans want that’s what the fans should get. Are they supposed to put out 1990’s style hip hop just because people think it keeps them real? C’mon son. Don’t you go to work to make money? Everything in life changes with time. If they didn’t change you would be complaining about that too. Respect don’t pay the bills homie, especially when the ones who whining and complaining don’t buy music anyway. And FYI: the lily white man been running “hip hop” since the beginning.

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        wowwwwwwwwww(flavor flav voice)ist i love the name…boldspice….i guess ur the long lost spice girl……ur argument much like ur music choices lack substance and reason….”respect dnt pay bills”….well it does when does who sign ur check respects you…now u might not mind not being respected but i do and i refuse to be put in a position where a job will determine my manhood…dats why i bust my ass and got a degree…so if u say something out of pocket..i’m off to my next proffesion….you seem like u dnt mind selling out or being walked on because they give you a worthless check..now i dnt buy there kind of music but i’m a big underground fan so i cop mixtapes…oh and ur fyi……i dnt need ur information fore i already stated it:”(bigger heads are all lily white)”… you see dat you dumb bastard…now dnt feel bad ur a fan of pop-rap…me and mines we rather keep it 100…

      • BoldSpice

        You a lil late sucka i lost interest. But here you go anyway.  I don’t care if you want my info or not but you got it so just shut up and eat it. When i feed my dog i don’t expect him to tell me if it’s good or not so the same applies to you. But anyway keep on keeping it 100 duck fukker.

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

Step your game up sucka.

      • BoldSpice

      • BoldSpice

  • Brick Soulja

    The best Twista song, was the one with Him on Diddy’s No Way Out album. He should have signed to Bad Boy. 

    • immackulate

      only place TWISTA should have signed was The ROC but they couldnt reel him in

  • BoldSpice

    Any other label would have put him on the shelf. He did the right thing if he signed there. They got the buzz he need to get back out there. Twista, Busta, and Mystikal on a track together? Yeah Buddy! I can’t wait.

    YMCMB better put out some good music with these artists or it will be wack at the end of the day. Damn they signing up the whole game just cos they can. All i am saying is they got the potential to put out some dope ish whether they will or not is still to be seen
