Has Fly Young Red signed with Lil Wayne’s label, Young Money Entertainment, aka Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB)?
Following the viral success of the video for his track “Throw That Boy Pussy,” Young Red caught the attention of Wayne, who noticed the reaction the song was getting at the club.
“Good music is good music,” Wayne said. “Gay, straight, black, white, blue or purple. Good music is just good music. Have you ever been in the club when that joint came on? Niggas go crazy when that drop. I had to make him YMCMB.”
YMCMB’s Birdman is also on board with bringing Young Red to the label. “I support everything my young’n do,” he said. “Young’n brought Red into the boardroom, we met behind closed doors, we spoke like men, we handled business like bosses. We ended up making him a offer he couldn’t refuse. It’s YMCMB forever, ya dig? We support Red movement and what he tryna accomplish. We definitely support the movement.”
While Wayne and Birdman are supporting “the movement,” Young Red has said in an interview with Huffington Post that there is no movement. “Throw That Boy Pussy” is just a gay song by a gay artist for gay people. Period.
“I decided to make this video for lots of reasons,” he said. “When I go to gay clubs and I look around, I see a lot of gay guys dancing to songs that are made by straight rappers talking about females . . . I think females are beautiful, but I don’t find them sexually attractive. I like gay guys, so I made a song for gay guys to enjoy and dance to. I made it to play at gay clubs. I never wanted this song on the radio at all — I’m not trying to push a gay agenda on the African American race or turn young black youth gay. This music is not for either of them. All I wanted to do was make a song for the gay people that like hip hop to dance to. That’s it.”
So has Young Red signed with YMCMB? Despite the interest of Wayne and Birdman, the label’s president, Mack Maine, insists there’s no truth to the rumours.
