New Year, Same Bull. While you were out spending your New Year’s Eve with friends and family, Lil Wayne decided to reconcile with his ‘dad.’ Yes, you read that right. Lil Tunechi went back to his abuser. After everything Birdman has done to him not just this past year but over time, Wayne turned yellow and returned. However, Wayne isn’t the only one who has left Birdman’s nest over bad business transactions, only to return later on. Which makes me ask, are folks afraid of Birdman?

I’ve seen this scenario before. Right after Scandal went off, I checked the internet one more time before I went to bed. And behold a surprise album is released. No, not from Beyoncé. Drake. See when this happened on December 13, 2013, we all were shocked and extremely happy for our surprise Beyoncé album. But on February 13, 2015, not really shocked but happy. See a surprise album should be just that, a surprise. Drake and his team had been hinting at a mixtape dropping that Thursday, to commemorate the 6th anniversary of So Far Gone. Not an album. And at first it was released as a mixtape but later was placed on iTunes as an album.

Death Row. Roc-A-Fella. Bad Boy. Murder Inc. No Limit. G-Unit. Just like Young Money, these labels too, have had their reign at the top. But just as Sir Isaac Newton once said, “What goes up, must come down.” And boy is it coming down. I’ve been watching Young Money for a few months now, because I started to notice the crumbling of their empire. Now if you’re a Hip-Hop head like me, then what’s happening in Young Money is nothing more than history repeating itself. Albums being pushed back, the workers becoming more famous than the boss, disgruntled artists, and so on. It’s been done. And a lot more entertainingly I might add. So lets explore Young Money and the repeating history.

Well damn Tyga, did you not listen to Q-Tip’s industry rule number 4080, ‘Record people are shady.’ For those of you who actually have a life, this past Friday T-Raww hit up his Twitter account and let us know how he feels about his label home, Young Money.

I’m a man of God.#LastKings is what I built and the only thing I rep. Ain’t no one man gone stay in the same spot forever that’s a sucka. I’m a hustler so I took what lil bit he gave me and doubled up – 2pac Never bite the hand that feeds you. But never starve for the hand that doesn’t. #LastKings”[/quote]
