Mack Maine Says Young Money “Adopted” Young Thug

YMCMB’s head honcho Mack Maine clears the air about Young Thug’s status with the label.

During an interview with VladTV, Mack and Young Money’s newest signee Euro chopped it up with DJ Whoo Kid about the buzz surrounding Thugga and hip-hop’s constant struggle with homophobia. Mack states that Birdman “adopted” the Atlanta rapper, and he’s been running with the crew ever since. He then teases new collaborations are in the works with various Young Money artists.

Mack’s statement would refute earlier confirmed sources that said Thug was not signed to the label. However, considering that anybody can be affiliated with a label, there might be some truth in him still being an independent rapper.

Further into the interview, Mack answers the question if there’s a market for gay rappers with “anything’s possible.”

Watch it above.
