Mack Maine: Lil Wayne Has Not Signed A Gay Rapper To Young Money
Rumors recently spread that Lil Wayne signed openly gay rapper Fly Young Red last Friday (April 4th) after 24hourhiphop reported that Lil Wayne announced signing Red. According to a quote obtained by the site, the rapper’s sexual orientation had no factor on his decision to sign him:
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? ni**as go crazy when that drop. I had to make him YMCMB [Young Money Cash Money Billionaires].
The site also posted a quote purportedly from Birdman cosigning Wayne’s decision:
I support everything my young’n do. 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.
However, Mack Maine went to his personal Twitter account to dispel the rumors:
I don't know if this is a publicity stunt but we (YMCMB) haven't signed any new artist recently....Love— Mack Maine (@mackmaine) April 8, 2014
