As the masterminds behind Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, Cash Money are no strangers to grooming successful acts.
Just as renowned for their blockbuster sales as they are for wide reaching influence on Pop and Hip Hop music, recent years have seen the label pick up a number of established entertainers, Jay Sean and Busta Rhymez being two of them.
Now it seems R&B belle Ashanti wants in on the action, reportedly signing with the label before the release of her new studio album.
Speaking to 98.7 Kiss FM, Young Money CEO Lil Wayne revealed:
As far as Cash Money, they’re always listening and looking at acts, so honestly, it’s like every other day I hear about somebody new just signed to Cash Money.
I don’t wanna step across any boundaries, but I think we’re working with Ashanti right now.
If she has joined the label, her signing will comes weeks after Christina Milian joined the group, which also houses Limp Bizkit, Tyga and the oft over looked Shannell, who served as the group’s only R&B female up until this year.
Seeing as YMCMB has both the know how and finances to support an act of Ashanti’s stature, we hope they use their resources to push both she and her material to all new heights, in the way have done for Nicki and Drake alike.
That is- if this report turns out to be.
