YG Links With Young Jeezy’s CTE

(AllHipHop News) During an interview with Power 98.3’s Bootleg Kev, Def Jam recording artist YG announced that he is now officially aligned with Young Jeezy’s Corporate Thugz Entertainment and that the Snowman will be executive producing his debut album I’m 4rm Bompton. He says the LP will be dropping either at the end of the year or at the top of next year.

YG also talks about how he hooked up with Jeezy, his sound influencing mainstream artists, and that he will not be releasing any more free mixtapes until the album comes out.

    Bad move

  • bigdoe6

    He settled for CTE???? I guess he’s going to be washing dishes with Slick Pulla. Oh well.

  • MadVillain

    another fish suckerd into CTE? i was gonna say this makes no sense but when dumass n!ggaz is continuing to sign with Bad Boy and Rocafella in the hopes of getting exposure i guess its just how the industry works. lacking self respect? desperation reaching an all time high? willing to do ANYTHING it takes? we got room for you!

    Call that a career suicide for this upcoming, young rapper for signing with CTE. That place is like a graveyard for active rappers. It never makes sense for someone like YG who has a little name himself to go with a more well known artist who will not push him like that.

    • RMfag

      There is only one YG, I thought this was about someone else.

  • Cswift85

    Every rapper is not meant to be a CEO. Jeezy, T.I. and Ludacris have all had good talent on their roster. Freddie Gibbs should have been had an album out, Young Dro should be like 3 albums deep right now and luckily 2 Chainz left DTP other than that he would still be on the shelf right now. I could say the same for Jay Z but him and Dame gave everybody they own lane…all the major stars on the Roc had labels and clothing lines so thats a different case. Everybody can diss Ross if they want but he ain’t puttin niggas on the shelf…Wale and Meek are poppin and Stalley coming up fast. Give it a year and YG gonna be wildin out like Gibbs.

    • andone

      wale, meek, and stalley were already buzzin b4 rozay singed them, he has yet to discover any real talent… the C.O got lucky that them lames were even willing to sign to him… wheres triple c’s, masspike miles, torch, hell omarion doesnt even have a release date SMH!

  • Golgo 13

    why is he with cte wen he is signed 2 def jam def jam was probably gonna drop him which is why they put him with cte on some game and 50 cent shit cte is not even a label jeezy don’t care and promote his artist which is why 3 of dem have left already blood raw, Freddie Gibbs and scrilla
