RUMOR: Curren$y Leaves Wayne’s Young Money Label?

Up-and-coming New Orleans rapper Curren$y, who has been signed to Lil Wayne’s Cash Money/Universal distributed Young Money imprint for several years, recently announced on his MySpace that he is no longer with the label. In a post titled “Sorry yall i tried…..honest,” which was posted at 6:07 a.m. on Sunday (Dec. 16), he declares his independence from his former label, but does not give a reason for his departure. He also goes on to claim that he will not be recording any diss tracks towards his former label. Curren$y’s debut Music To Fly To was originally slated for a 2006 release, but the release date was pushed back indefinitely. A video for the first single “Where Da Cash At?,” which featured Lil Wayne and Remy Ma, received play from major video networks back in 2006. Here is the full post from Curren$y’s MySpace:

“I officially declare my independence on this 16th day of December 2007….I AM NOT YOUNG MONEY….regardless of what u may hear in da streets,read on the web or hear on the radio I AM NOT YOUNG MONEY….If that loses me friends r fans thats just something i will live with but i will get my just due in this rap game b4 its all said and done…..Dont look 4 any beef records from me cuzz that aint my thing, just look 4 me at the top…str8 up…..fly 1 out”

      • maclymalc

        first and foremost,curren@y is kinda whack,if not whack,way way way overrated,his flow is on point at times,but his voice is annoying and grainy and he just has weak content,his words dont hit you like whoa,that was real,hes doin his thing and thats cool,i respect that,but really hes not that great

        • Juicey-Tin

          hahaha now look at yourself… Curren$y is one of the only rappers that stayed real….

      Wayne, Currensy and Mac Mane was a cold piece. Currensy makin hot shit. cant nobody tell him nothin. He doin his thing. I feel he would do good either way but he gets way more respect for doin it himself instead of hand outs from Wayne.

      I cant blame him wayne was neva gonna release him. He’s really not a lyricist but he has a diffrent voice and a swaggerwich gennerated a fan base.

      Honestly i doubt wayne will ever release an artist. He dont know shit about the business. He to bizzy gettin fucked over by baby and slim and the sad part is he dont even know it

  • moresickaMC

  • Fireforreal

    There was no way wayne was gonna let this guy shine,just like diddy refuses to let his artist’s become bigger than him .Wayne is dope but he is starting to really get use to all the dick riding,helping some one else get on is last on his mind.Look at Busta rhymes and his so called flipmode movement. After 10 years of reppin only one Rah digga album and one flipmode group album.Does anyone see how this plays out most of the time

    • http://twitter.com/SOUPERVILLIAN SOUPERVILLIAN

Holla back Capo, or should I say Caphoe..get it bitch we Cap hoes like you down here in Texas!

  • Peru

    I AM NOT HATING!!! I don’t particularlly like southern rap besides Outkast, a minimal dose of Rick Ross and maybe some….well I can’t think of nobody else, personally I think the South taking over rap and the industry getting a massive disease and the attack on Hip Hop all go hand in hand, I know there are smart niggas in the South but none have been displayed yet…so niggas will continue to hate on the South killing the rap game cuz its a valid point….and watch niggas still say I’m hating, when all I’m doing is trying to start a argumnent topic, be civil and prove my statement wrong…

    • liljimmy

      hey peru go check out some playa fly, N God We Trust,Fell Me,Ghetto Eyes,Gettin’ It On,Situation” that will change yo outlook on the south

      • Caine

  • liljimmy

    where the cash at was a hit i thought this nigga was gone fly. he need go for self and do his own thang lil wayne will regret it when next time he writing a rap fucc wayne

  • DirtDoggy

    Wouldn’t he make more money swinging off Wayne’s scrodum anyway ?

    Ghostwritting
    Show money
    Hype man
    Handling weed sacks
    taking phone calls
    Getting sloppy seconds on that nasty ass bitch Trina.

    ect….

    I think he lost this one, cause nobody but a couple anciant rappers with following Stans are making money these days anyway.

  • RingTone B

    Curren$y nice but I knew he would never drop an ablum under cash money. Check the record, can any1 name the last cash money hip hop album to drop that wasn’t Wayne, Baby, Fresh, Juve, B.G. or Turk. I will give you time to think……….. it was Boo and Gotti’s Perfect Timing in 2003-04. B4 that it was Mack 10. Curren$y, Gillie, Mikkie, Stone & Lac, Lil Mo and others, none them ever dropped an album under Cash Money & all saw that they never ever would either so they bounced.

    • http://xXLMAG jOHNNY BOY(B Stuy Reppa)

      Mack did drop a album under Cash Money. “Bang Or Ball” dropped
      in 01.

    • http://www.yahoo.com Shawty Reg

      Don’t 4get about Tina Marie…….

  • The God

    This was rumoured for a while. I was looking at Curren$y’s wikipedia entry three months ago (pause) and saw him listed as “former Cash Money artist.” Too bad, he was nice.

    I hope, for Noz’z sake, Mac Maine doesn’t follow.

  • 50z tax.write.off

    damn…another ghostwriter…wayne better think of somehin’

  • Swizzy

    seriusly currensy is an ill lyricist ..niggas shud take him in before u put on levels wit all dem other southern artists… i dont like that snap shit not one bit but i do know and am not ignorant enough to listen to some southern artists who actually DO have lyrical skills… currensy’s flow is ill .. and i believe he deserves his own shine and that he feels this is the best way to do it and hes goin for his nigga .. real talk … i hope to c dis nigga doin some mixtape shit at least..dont fall off tho currensy … FLY SOCIETY

  • WEST WIT IT

    We got sum haters on here….Real talk tho, i heard Currensy get the fuck off on a couple tracks…hes raw…but he coo. “mami said she recognize gangsters but when she look at u its like she lookin at a stranger”

  • http://www.myspace.com/comeshopwitus dj lemonhead

    Theres a bunch of self righteous muafuckas on this site. You act like only east coast rappers spit. There are good rappers from all over the world.And there are some garbage rappers all over the world.Some might even be your favorite. So stop clumpin muafuckas into one category. You bad as racists who make a decision about a group of people just cause of what they see on TV. We call them ignorant and yawl punk asses aint no better. Stop downloading your favorite rappers cd off the internet and buy it. Then maybe record labels will put more money behind your favorite. All ya bitchin, moanin and crying is whats killing hip hop. Divide and conquer. We’ve seen it all before. So until you get some common sense keep downloading and e-thuggin wit yo pussy ass.

    Yall trippin Currensy was that dude If wayne and Baby was the businessmen they should they would have known they could market dude to Skateboarders and hood niggas. Currensy was the only nigga who could pull off both he was dat dude and he had hella swag. Wayne took a loss on this. Oh and b4 u hate listen to Life at 15,000 ft mixtape.

  • Moe

    Another one bites the dust signing to Young Money or Cashmoney is a career risk a huge one why yall think Jadakiss didn’t sign to Cashmoney or Young Money? Also the Dogg Pound left Cashmoney. They ain’t getting put out over there and the money ain’t right because all Faggit ass Baby just buys a bunch of cars and jewlery and makes love to Wayne

  • Lotto

    Curren$y was with Master P and Lil’ Wayne.

  • http://www.myspace.com/tarchi_chris Tasha

    I dont kno who true that is. I do kno that there is someone on myspace claiming to be curren$y..and i think thats who made that statement (ive seen the page..and i’ve also seen the real or the other currency’s page) and it says nothing of the sort. But u never really know right?!? so whenever it happens i’ll believe.

  • slim

    Currensy did right by leavin, name 1 artist that lil wayne has drop on young money! No one has ever drop and never will, dizzy drop his album on raj smoothe label and that shit was nice! U do better signing to cash money but u still proly won’t drop cause only mack10 and boo and gotti was tha only people ever to drop other than related cash money artist! Baby won’t even drop new orleans artist, like 6 shot, stone, lac, magnolia chop, dizzy, lil mo, mickey, TQ, tha sqad, and more! But my nigga who was signed to cash money told me tha baby said if u ever do drop u must b from uptown, he aint droppin u if u from downtown, and that’s true cause no one hasn’t! Fresh did but he doesn’t count cause he been cash money n tha beginning! Like tha dude on this site comment and said quickist way to flop sign under another rapper! Quite true

  • j-dubb

    since when did myspace become a reliable source for information? theirs probably several other profiles that claim to be currency. whoever posted this probably believes pimp c’s coming back with tupac in 2012.

  • SebFLYSOCIETY

    yo currency is INSANE. like i love wayne but currency could of been jsut as famous. dude has the smoothest flow and some crazy rhymes so for all you ppl saying you dont care or hes gargbage i dont know wtf you been listening to lately. and tracks with currency and wayne were insane and full of chemeistry . i think it really sucks cuz i think currency was the only artist on CMYM to have crazy talent.Mack maine good but boring and All star and dem arent anything special. currency put it down liek mad. i cant wait till he releases his own album

  • ~BlacK~

    dis shit is de ja vu all over again….its da same shit dat happened wit da hot boys…next thing u know mcmain gone leave 2 but that jus goes 2 show u….wayne aint got no BI bein president of somebodies label…..as for curren$Y WELL i dont care what nobody say he was the shit 2 me but i’d be surprised if i hear anything major from him now that he’s not with young money….that was basically his ticket up…. unless he lucks up i dont think i’ll be hearin anything other then the local mixtapes 4rm him….but i hope im wrong

  • http://myspace.com/m_i_l princessmilaa

    question to all the HATERS.. have you even heard Spitta rap???? You on this shit sayin he garbage & what not but i guarantee you prolly never even listened to HIS SHIT.. not none of the verses he spit on wayne shit.. Capostatus.. Currensy aint on that snapyafingers type shit.. & i can put money on it that Spitta wrote for Weezy.. DOnt get me wrong.. I fucks with Weezy but I can honestly say that Currensy was a main reason that I was even listening to YM.. And coinsidentally.. SPitta leaves & Weezy jus starts spittin some NEXT shit tryna be T-Pain? ANyway! Young Money or NO MONEY.. He deserves his spot in the game & I know hes gona do it for DOLO..

    and if that aint enough….

    listen to “Gossip” (the song he performed at the BET Awards) Currency was str8 but if he aint doing shit he aint doin shit plain and simple.

  • Takeme

They both where going in 2 different directions with they music and Curren$y has continued to survive and create a grass root type movement for himself. I respect his hustle, and I rep JET$ all day.
