Nicki Minaj & Drake To Leave Cash Money? Lil Wayne Says…Yes

Published: Tuesday 27th Jan 2015 by David


Au revoir Baby.

Should the rapper Lil Wayne have his way, that’s just what Drake and Nicki Minaj will say to their current label boss Bryan ‘Baby’ Williams this year, as he plans to pull them away from his Cash Money music empire.

News that’ll ruffle Birdman‘s feathers below…

After it emerged money lay at the root of Wayne’s ongoing legal battle with the mogul, Bryan (also known as Birdman) has now learned that his former protege intends to take the artists they signed together away from the music group when he leaves it himself.

These artists include world renown superstars Drake and Nicki Minaj as well as the singer Christina Milian and the rapper Lil Twist.

Unfortunately, doing so won’t be an easy for the ‘Loyal’ lyricist as Minaj and Drake have distribution deals with Cash, and may see Wayne use the court system to free them from their respective arrangements.

      Drake will be fine. Flopnika Garbaj should be worried. Without Birdman’s payola, her career will be on the rocks. Also, without Birdman, who is going to buy Flopnika the vaginal ointments that she needs to treat her stink pusssy?

    my own is my Onika, Wayne and drake!!! drake y Onika signed to young money!!! I don’t care about birdman! they should leave birdman cause if he is stealing $8M from Wayne his supposed son then I can’t imagine how much he is stealing from drake and Nicki!!!! but Drake and Nicki has sense drake has a record label ovo and Nicki is about to launch her record label that is unnamed and she already signed protégées!! I’m not worried about Nicki cause in 5yrs in d game she has banked $52M and this year with hosting the Emas for 18M and myx mascato the highest mascato in d country sold 7M bottles that grossed 18M and Onika her perfume that’s d highest selling perfume her net worth this year is gonna be d interesting

    Of course he’ll take the biggest stars who are raking in the biggest money! But then again, he does deserve a large credit for kickstarting Nicki and Drake’s careers and helping them reach stardom; but this time, I think we should let both of them make their own decisions for themselves, right Wayne?

  4. Igloo Australia January 27, 2015

    Can he please take Azealia Banks with him wherever those three are going? She NEEDS to blow up and become a globalised main girl in pop music.

  8. Everyone’s A Critic January 27, 2015

    So all them shoutouts in their songs “YOUNG MONEY” … I guess it won’t mean anything now. Kinda affects the longevity of the songs too. Kinda like when you get your boos name tatted on you only to break up. Constant reminder of something that pisses you off!
    More fool them. Id never do a shoutout on an official song

    • Lake Erie January 27, 2015

      Right! I agree lol. That is messed up Smh. If all this go through, I’m anxious to find out how his career turns out. I know he’s Wayne but it’d be different then.

  9. Lake Erie January 27, 2015

    Wow! Smh. I too wonder if it’s up to Nikki and Drake, who would they follow? This is the time when you find out who really rocks with you because like the ole saying goes: Money talks$$$!!

    Rihanna’s lead single is still struggling to hit #1 on iTunes

    • SingingLikeMariah January 27, 2015

      The same way 7/11 is struggling down the charts.

    • TheNavi January 27, 2015

      this career ender is in need of a career. TGJ please put it on your payroll. Can’t you see how desperate it is for work?

    • BDay January 27, 2015

      Ewwwww @caeerEnder
      You give the BeyHive a bad name. This post has nothing to do with rihanna, yet you up in here pressed about her.
      You are pathetic

  11. cake like lady gaga January 27, 2015

    The African navi is hard at work
    #1 Botswana
    #1 Ghana
    #1 Nigeria
    #1 South Africa
    #1 Zimbabwe
    while the African H.IV+ is too broke to support their fave
    #68 Cape Verde
    #69 South Africa
    #84 Uganda
    #105 Nigeria
    #135 Swaziland
    maybe this is why the H.IV+ stays mad

    • Career Ender January 27, 2015

      17 people purchasing it in SA is not slaying 😉
      im talking about the land where she got them 13 #1s why aint she slaying?

      • cake like lady gaga January 27, 2015

        why are you perched on tgj instead of being perched on iTunes buying 9/11? better yet, why arent you job hunting? no one will hire you with that N4 certificate in HR from the Alex FET college.

      • TheNavi January 27, 2015

        It has no life! That’s why it sits here and comments so much. That’s why it hides behind a beyonce Avi.

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 27, 2015

      SCREEEEAMS. Leave it to cake to put this fatherless H I V + fág called Career Struggles back to its hole in the overpopulated rat-infested township called Alexandra in South Africa. XD

    • Beysus January 27, 2015

      UMMM I’m pretty sure ONE of the HUNDRED countries that made BEYONCE #1 was in Africa….

  12. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 27, 2015

    SCREEEEAMS. Leave it to cake to put this fatherless H I V + fág called Career Struggles back to its hole in the overpopulated rat-infested township called Alexandra in South Africa. XD

  13. RICHIE_RICH January 27, 2015

    Hmmmm………let’s see how this play out. Damn is everyday a Bey vs Rih . Give it a break. BEYONCE is HBIC get over it . Have a blessed day to all

    • B2B January 27, 2015

      Exactly, everyone who is someone knows who the HBIC is, nothing furthermore to discuss.

  14. african music lover January 27, 2015

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that happened.. anyway I am loving the pink print and the new Rihanna song is slowly growing on me. But I have a feeling that this post is going to turn into Rihanna vs. Beyoncé

  15. Dossome January 27, 2015

    Well,I care for neither Birdman nor Wayne but I just hope they settle their stuff amicably.Nobody is coming out of this a winner

  16. Walker January 27, 2015

    This means Nicki’s album is toast. Album promotion almost ALWAYS suffers during situations like this because the label becomes too focused on legalities, contracts, inner office turmoil and its own reconfiguration than concentrating on properly promoting their newest releases.

    • GEEZUS January 27, 2015

      Nicki got Universal.

  17. DanYiel Teflon January 27, 2015

    Divorces like this ANNOY ME!!:)

  18. TheElusiveLamb January 27, 2015

    I wish them well. It must very difficult dealing with this because their careers will be affected forever.

  19. FixItJesus January 27, 2015

    For those of you saying All those shutouts saying “Young Money” Will mean nothing, think again, since YM belongs to Wayne, as do all artists under his YM umbrella. All CM does is DISTRIBUTE their material, and if Wayne can get them out of that, there will definitely be others looking to pick up THAT particular distribution deal. In my opinion, you can’t talk about Drake and Nicki without mentioning Wayne, so it only makes sense that he takes them with him.

    • Avenger January 27, 2015

      Cash Money is more than Young Money’s distributor. YM is a joint venture and brand of CM, which means that CM is YM’s financial backer and basically its parent. Everything owned by YM is owned by CM. And you can best believe they possess a controlling interest in Drake and Minaj’s contracts, even if thus far they’ve allowed YM the vanity of principally claiming them and making surface level creative decisions. Wayne could I guess buy the shares of YM owned by CM, but good luck with that. At this point things seem like they’re ugly, so I doubt that Baby easily compromise. Ultimately Young Money will most likely be shut down, with Wayne having to start a new label for himself wherever he ends up at. And in the meantime, Cash Money will most likely have the option to keep Nicki and Drake until their contracts expire.

    wayne, nicki and drake is YM, Nicki and drake is there because of wayne and in my opinion drake and Nicki is wayne artists. and i hope if wayne gets to leave he takes nicki and drake with him. then three should cut tides from cmb,
    and do there own thing with YM.
