Omarion Signs With Lil Wayne’s Young Money Label, Confirms Rep

XXLMag.com has learned that former B2K singer Omarion has indeed signed to Lil Wayne’s Universal imprint Young Money.

After rumors broke out following a message on Tyrese’s twitter account congratulating O on his new deal, a rep for Universal has confirmed with XXL that the R&B singer is the latest artist to join the Young Money roster. The imprint already has a long list of talent including Drake, Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine and Nicki Minaj, among others. It is uncertain if any of the other acts are officially signed to Universal.

Omarion, who has released two solo albums and one joint album with Bow Wow, was formerly on T.U.G/Sony Urban Music/Epic. As of press time he has not released a statement about the new deal. – Elan Mancini

    WHO GIVES A FUCK!

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN

    that is a nice line up. but, when will one of these artists drop an album off Young Moolah Baaby? never, right?

    • venemez

      Right!

  • HNIC

    In my opinion, they need to go ahead & release a label roster Mixtape, featuring atleast 1 or 2 of the best tracks from each artist or a collaboration from a few acts on the same track, similar to what they did with the “Every Girl” single that they had, a couple of months back.

    Otherwise, without Wayne guesting on all of their lead singles, it’s going to be a difficult sell, considering how saturated the market is with new, up & coming acts.

    If every formerly major label had done that, it might’ve helped to improve overall music sells across the board & maintained their longivity as a label & solo/group acts as well, instead of so many people falling by the wayside, only to later appear on the milk carton section of the latest XXL issue.

    SOOO…. AN ALREADY IRRELEVANT ARTIST SINKS INTO THE YOUNG MOOLAH ABYSS TO BECOME MORE IRRELEVANT. NOTE: NICKI, MANE, MILLZ, DRAKE IN 3 MONTHS.

    • screezy

      only thing is that none of them are signed to universal..and nicki and drake aint even signed to young money just affiliated.. believe if universal put they stamp on it wit young money he gon get a release date now if he sell is the question

  • $ykotic

    Does the fact that NO OTHER LABEL picked this guy up say anything?

      Whadup $yk…

      This reminds me of when Mack 10 signed with No Limit.

      We see how that turned out.

      Now they have a “G” in the line up. That is, if “G” stands for gay or girlie man.

      Bow Wizzy probably pissed right now…..

      BW: Man, did you tell them about that album we did together? I thought we were a team, dog!”

      O: Nigga, I didn’t say shit about you makin’ a video with Chris Brown…

      • THE VOICE

        MACK 10 NEVER SIGNED TO NO LIMIT IT WAS CASH MONEY!!!SNOOP SIGNED TO NO LIMIT!!! AND OMARION IS A GOOD LOOK FOR THEM…HE HAS A FAN BASE AND ADD AN REAL R&B ACT TO THEY ROSTER ONLY MAKES THEM BETTER!!!THEY HAVE MORE WOMEN ON THEY TEAM!!!!

      • $ykotic

        Grand$!

        Wasn’t that when Mack married T-Boz? And didn’t Snoop just leave?

        Real talk we don’t give enough credit to Slim.

        BUT WATCH WAYNE GET ON HIS POP/ROCK GRIND RIGHT NOW. DON’T HATE!

      • El Tico Loco

        Hehmm Mac 10 was signed to Cash Money.

        • $ykotic

          I knew it was someone from The Boot. Good looking out.

  • BeerGangsta

    This will be a Platium hit. Wayne gay azz hell. O think he look good. You get what I am saying. This is different look what Rap Game need.

  • Nate

    I heard Drake mixtape yesterday. Dude is WAY (Paris)better than Lil Wayne, doing it without all the gimmiks too. I heard Jae Milz also a couple years ago and he is nice. Too bad the new guys are more original than Lil Wayne. I hope Wayne doesn’t try to get all up and down their songs on their albums.. I can’t stand his guest appearances. He fucks up a lot of peoples records.

    HNIC- Black Wall Street did that with journals- that was a NICE comp album. Also Mack 10 did that with Hoo Bangin which was the shit in 1999. Damn, 10 years already. What happens after a year or 2 is the main artists finds out he doesn’t have the time and management skills to deal with each sub-artist on a day to day, and he either gets too involved, or out of touch with the artist. Then also, the artists doesn’t have enough funding, or backing to succeed. Many artists never have anything substantial put out. That might change with Wayne. I don’t like him but it’s possible that he is good with people.

  • Azhar

    Ooooooo how the mighty have fallen!!!! Real rap i hope shit works out for these artists…But really how many of them will have actual releases maybe 1 or 2!

  • TUNED2IT

  • A GENIUS

    THATS WHATS UP… CONGRATS!…

    When are we gonna get an OFFICIAL YOUNG MONEY artist… ANYONE of them… to drop a OFFICIAL ALBUM?… After the Rock CD that is gonna be pushed back at least another 6 months drops?… We prolly wont get one of these artist to drop for another 1-2years, Right when they alllll start to FALL OFF!

  • B Mo Careful

    Hey I thought Mack 10 signed to Cash Money not No Limit…………..

    • Jack Tripper

      He did. He didn’t sign with No Limit. He signed with Cash Money and dropped 1 alblum with them. Maybe 2.

    • Jack Tripper

      Yeah Mack 10 signed with Cash Money. He dropped one alblum with them. Maybe 2.

  • Jack Tripper

    Damn! My shit don’t show up!WTF!?

  • Federal Ranga

    This is weird… the fact any of you commented on this at all blows me away. $yk… I forwarded you yawka’s new strike at me, Tico and Grand$. Post it for me.

  • cheif smokeone

    Did his last album even sell?,did his album with bow wow sell?!!HELL NO!! wayne needs 2 put the drugs down so he can sign some real talent,and stop letting birdman sr. pimp his lil ass.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    Glad he got away from TUG <- Entertainment (SMH) and child molesting Chris Stokes.

  • Capital G

    So that’s what happened to Jae Millz? I really had no idea where the fuck he went. And as far as Homarion (spelling intended) signing with Lil’ Wang, does anyone truly give a shit?

    *hears crickets chirping while waiting for an answer*

  • DazzOne

    Yeah. B2K and Chris Stokes had some Backstreet Boys and Ron Pearlman thang going on (or was that staged like Sacha nuts in Em’s mouth). Maybe Wayne will sign Pretty Ricky! Or just Spectacular, so O and ‘nem can grind on each other while ‘Wayne and Baby watch and make out.

    I think I went too far…*dry heave*

  • Rae Tha Great

    yall late my boss at work told me about this when the I AM MUSIC TOUR was in Detroit, I didn’t believe her worth shit though, LOL. PEACE

  • Teddy

    shout out to rappers signing people and never releasing anything big ups to stat quo, tru life, currensy,ppl singin ppl doesnt mean shit 50 signed like 100 ppl at one point dropped like 2 of their albums

  • TasMoney

    I wonder how long its gonna take for wayne to get tired of this nigga dancing.Lol.

  • Beast McCoy

    This is the essence of hustling backwards. If you can’t get a real deal why bother announcing your signing to this imaginary label. Maybe to drum up interest and too wash out that bad taste his disaterous collabo with Bow Wow left in his fans mouth. I can’t see why no one isn’t willing to take a chance on the Poor Man’s Usher?

    Troof, you aint making money on another rapper’s label. When you sign on another rappers label you have no confidence or money on shit like studio time, marketing, etc. Drizzy shouldn’t have signed with Young Money. He should have signed to Universal and affiliated with Young Money.

  • OFFICER RICKY

    What happen to tyga? Is Nicki & Drake officially signed wit Young Money? As for O being on Young Money I feel like thats a major power move like Rasheed Wallace going to the celtics or Shaq playing wit labron. Young Money the hottest label out right now if not you tell me who?

    Foolish and dumb mistake on Omarion. Well he can always cry back to Chris Stokes or his boyfriend Bow Wow for support.
