Unless you have been living under a rock, or have been cryogenically frozen for the past 15 years, then you know that Cash Money Records has had a myriad of ironic issues with artists and producers surrounding the labels’ namesake. Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, B.G., “Lollipop” producer Deezle, are among the many who have sued the label for millions in unpaid royalties.
Recently, the label’s OG cash cow, Lil Wayne, has made his displeasure with his “daddy’s” business practices very public and announced his desire to leave for good.Is it possible that Wayne is preaching his message to the rest of his YMCMB posse?Yesterday, Nicki Minaj posted a series of telling Instagram posts beginning with this.
The cover of Wayne’s new mixtape, Sorry 4 The Wait 2 says a thousand words.
Now this message could be aimed at several people. Baby? Slim? SB? Her former manager Fendi? Maybe Nicki knew this and wanted to make it a lil more specific so it really hits home.
The caption reads:
Thanks to u guys, The Pinkprint is the #1 Rap album on Billboard for a fifth week. What happens when your album is streamed 70 million times? What happens when you’re the #1 streamed artist of December? Nothing, that’s what. Everyone benefits but the artist in 2015. Very different from the good “old” days. #BigBusiness #ButForWho Thank u for the support u guys
