Comparing YMCMB Albums By The Numbers

young_money_2

Young Money is Lil Wayne’s crowning jewel. After years of being a member of the Hot Boys and branching out to do his own thing on Cash Money, the 31-year-old MC has grown into the CEO of his own company. YM houses a number of talents that includes superstars Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga. In similar fashion to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, YMCMB has used their compilation albums to give artists a platform to be in the spotlight. They have been fairly successful in breaking new faces into the mainstream. With their latest LP, Rise Of An Empire, cracking the top 10 in album sales this week, we decided to compare each LP side-by-side to find out which had the most success. How many times did Wayne appear? Who had the memorable verse? All that and more in our By The Numbers.—Eric Diep, Dan Rys and Chisom Uzosike
