Birdman Says Busta Rhymes, Mystikal Dropping Albums in May, Most of YMCMB Also Releasing LPs

To hear Birdman say it, 2012 is going to be a busy year for Young Money/Cash Money.

Baby tells that YMCMB is dropping more albums than ever before this year. First up are LPs by Tyga, Lil Twist and Nicki Minaj. And, the team’s flagship act, Lil’ Wayne has plans to come back out this year as well.

“He’s working on a couple of albums,” Birdman confirmed. “I think the next one he wants to put out is I’m Not a Human Being [Part 2]. We don’t have a date.  He never stops working. So with him, you never know. It all depends on when the young boss wants to drop it. Tunechi do what he want. We’re ready for whatever, whenever he’s ready to go. When he calls the shot, we’ll make it move.  Right now it’s about Tyga, Nicki, Twist, Bow and myself; everybody that has albums coming out before we put Wayne’s out in the next few months.”

In addition to those LPs, Birdman says Mystikal and Busta Rhymes have albums dropping in May. Not to mention, Drake’s Take Care is out and seems like it will have legs to take it well into 2012.

Birdman says one of his dreams is to bring everybody out on a stadium tour while they have projects out.

“That’s one of the goals we have,” Birdman says about a potential YMCMB stadium tour. “That’s something I would like to do one day in this lifetime. I want us to do our own tours. And we set up for that. That’s one of the reasons for having these special acts – for touring. Everybody is going to have fresh music out by the summer time. We just gonna keep it going. Try to find new acts, try to break new acts. And the acts that’s already broke, keep getting bigger and bigger. I can’t stress enough about the growth. We just want to grow, sell more records, do more digital numbers, find a way to keep expanding.” —Shaheem Reid
