Soulja Boy Confirms Signing To YMCMB (Sort Of)
For months, Soulja Boy has been snapping photos with various members of YMCMB—including Cash Money CEO Birdman and Young Money president Mack Maine. With his status as a free agent since leaving Interscope, Soulja has left clues as to where he’ll end up next. At one point, after he inked the words “Rich Gang” on his face, he made his YMCMB affiliation public by adding the label to his social networks. And back in March, the 22-year-old was spotted talking business with Birdman in Miami, which Stunna later tweeted: “S/O. that lil homey@souljaboy Realnigga do Real thangs. RichGang YMCMB.”
But now, you can add one more piece to the puzzle. On his recently released mixtape King Soulja, he appears to have shouted out his allegiance to the label. The specific track is “Come On,” where he opens it up by saying, “SODMG. PTE. Rich Gang. YMCMB.” Near the end, he more or less says the same thing: “Soulja. Salute. Rich Gang. YMCMB. SOD.”
This is all speculation until Soulja Boy makes an official announcement. Still, it should be pointed out that Drake revealed his loyalty to YMCMB on “Best I Ever Had,” before inking his deal back in 2009. Maybe, Dre is waiting until the timing is just right.
