LoLa Monroe And Cardo Are No Longer Affiliated With Taylor Gang


With Ty Dolla $ign buzzing, Juicy J making his highest chart debut of his career and Wiz Khalifa gearing up for his next album Blacc Hollywood set for release before the end of the year, Taylor Gang Records is having itself a hell of a year and asserting itself as a major hip-hop imprint. But today the label announced that two of its affiliates, rapper LoLa Monroe and in-house producer Cardo, are no longer associated with Taylor Gang.

“After years of helping build their careers, we did not feel as if the relationships were mutually beneficial,” a Taylor Gang executive told XXL. “We wish LoLa and Cardo the best but hope they move on in their respective directions without affiliating themselves to the Taylor Gang brand or name.”

Monroe, who Wiz referred to in July of last year as the best female rapper around, was featured on Taylor Allderdice and Wiz’s most recent album O.N.I.F.C., while Cardo was one of the main architects of both Taylor Allderdice project and Wiz’s breakout 2010 mixtape Kush and OJ. Neither, however, had official contracts or deals in place with Taylor Gang, despite earlier reports, according to label reps.

Juicy’s Stay Trippy debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart last week, while Wiz’s O.N.I.F.C. debuted at No. 2 on the same chart upon its release last December.
