Busta Rhymes, Mystikal Sign With Cash Money

Busta and Mystikal announce that they've joined the Young Money family, strengthening the already solid Cash Money roster.

In a move as unexpected as it is contentious, Busta Rhymes officially signed to Cash Money on Wednesday. While details of the deal are unclear, the pioneering emcee will surely join Lil' Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj, on the Young Money roster.
Fellow rapper Rick Ross congratulated Busta over Twitter on Wednesday night, to which Busta replied with praise for both Young Money and Maybach Music. The latter record label saw its own unexpected deal when Wale signed to Maybach and eventually won a top spot on the Billboard charts with his sophomore album, Ambition.
Mystikal, recently released from prison, also signed with Cash Money. The Louisiana rapper had recently been in collaboration with former Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh to release his post-prison album.
In addition to joining the Young Money family, Busta Rhymes also teamed up with Google Music to release his Chris Brown-featured single "Why Stop Now."

    That just made it official, I will never buy anything by Busta again. Talk about selling out hard, what happened to the the Busta that was on "Scenario" creating "Woo Hah" then to Cash Money? What the hell is he thinking, the only ones that make money there are Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj & Drake only because their pop artists but that will fade and Birdman just cashes in on this. I will say Busta Rhymes probably lost of his fans from the days when he was good, working with Leaders of the New School & frequently collaborating with A Tribe Called Quest.

  • Trib Stax

    Lets see how fast yall get album releases or will you just get features with Drake, Minaj, Wayne. Cory Gunz signed wheres the album, Bow Wow signed wheres the album. Hey remember Roc a fella, gUnit did that signed everybody and nobody came out.

    hmmm looks like Lil wayne trying to make their image harder by adding 2 rappers with some street cred on them...naw these niggas old washed up. Yeah they mike make a good feature on someone's single but naw aint no one gon be checking for them simply because they sold their soul trying to get the spotlight. I hope this backfires and make Young Money played out with all these niggas they adding, especially 2 old fruitcakes that's played out. wooooooo hopefully this happens

    WHOA! So I wonder what position this puts Mannie Fresh and Mystikals collabo on. There was the Mannie article a few weeks back talking about how he wanted to complete some ish with Mystikal, but now he's on Cash Money. and correct me if I'm wrong, but Mannie said he's still cool with Wayne, and no one else on the camp right? This should be interesting.

    What a shame Busta Rhymes, after all these years in the game has had to associate himself with a crew that is so beneath him.

    big deal only 4 artist get pushed and you know who they are and while there is a cast of 12 artist who haven't had a whiff of any lime light i guess busta doesn't have faith in flipmode records while mystikal had to take any deal thrown at him

    YOUNG MONEY just got some adult supervision. Busta Rhymes gay ass in the mix he'll be cornering lil Twist very soon. YOUNG MONEY is basically a gay label. drake suckin dink in hollywood. lil wayne kissin his gay daddy. busta rhymes has initiating gay rappers in music for years. congrats to the old washed up homo Busta Rhymes. "I did it my way" - Frank Sinatra ^ has nothing to do with gay ass bussa bus

  • Why Busta?

    What the hell will Young Money do for you? Def Jam, Sony, Shady and a billion and seven other options are better than that. Your better than all of them (even though your not very good anymore) and your old enough to be their father Busta.

  • Its Um

    Keep it New York Busta, New york. Please let Hi-tek (even tho not from NY) do a couple of tracks for ya.

  • rick

    WTF!! WOW! Hopefully this is a move to get better production for Busta.....His last 2 albums were weak.....he needs to colab with DJ Scratch more often...shit an entire album produced by Scratch would be fuckin' awesome....(NO, NOT A MIXTAPE)...But Busta will be alright. He's one of the few respectable MC's who can spit hard over a "POP" beat...see look at me now!

    Im actually shocked by this. No good Busta no good

  • sufur222

    To be fair, Mystikal's been in prison for the 6 years so at least this way people will notice him again. But Busta... time will tell. As long as they let him choose his producers, he should be fine, but E.L.E. 2 will probably come out at the same time as Detox, considering how Cash Money handle their releases.

  • oskamadison

    Wow...Busta's 20 YEARS in the game, once had his own label/mini-movement with Flipmode (what's up with Conglomerate?), sold millions of records, smashed damn near every record he's been featured on, once had a potential acting career...only to sign with Young Money/Cash Money? not a good look by any stretch. Well at least it wasn't Def Jam. Next up: LL signs to Maybach Music.

  • Cobra Kai

    This shit right here is dumb amazing. In a terrible way. They sign busta but hate on jay? Hmm busta I think is as old or older Than Hov. Smh okAy so if your Corey gunz or gudda gudda is this the kiss your career goodbye day?this reminds me of every super crew in hip hop save maybe deathrow in their prime, every rapper on the label can't release an album. It never happens. It's the stockpile on all these mcs that's gonna make Niggas regret signing to the "hottest" label at the time. Why you think currensy left young money and he was ground floor to that movement. Baby is one of the shadiest "moguls" in music ask Turk manny fresh juvi and bg. If this doesn't blow up in their faces I'll applaud, but signing a convicted rapist isn't a good look nor funding 50 yr blood niggas head Tats so he can scream young money when this Nigga was young when public enemy was the shit. And so they gonna sign game too huh? Trash. All that gangbang rap was Soo '95. They're so boring with this fake ass shit. If you Lil niggas believe Wayne is banging have fun I thought wrestling was real too until I seen beyond the mat. With said homey was right that busta should have had the forsight to have his own label, but it's whatever. He'll learn how hard it is to get a Meal in babys house.

    • Toolish

      actually B.G. has signed back to Cash Money and released an album, some Young Money niggas have debut albums comin look Tyga's 2nd album & Twist's 1st album comin next month, Jae Millz, Shanell, Mack Maine, Cory Gunz & Gudda have albums droppin somewhere in the next 2 years it takes time to even get buzz for new rappers yet alone an album its true T-Streets will probably never make an album but Gudda Gudda said it himself he doesn't care if he makes an album or not it all about being respected for how far they came

  • Schweinepriester Helmut Smith

    Busty is just a artist not a Boss. Signing to CMB might help his ass after Aftermathn Dre didnt give a shit pushing his career. All of us loved that Flipmode Shit, but it was only a slogan not a organisation. Besides that, Bus had his best years in the past - he should sell cereals with his face on front.

  • Makaveli The Don Lives On

    its sad to see busta with these fags..he is a senior rapper, he shouldve have his own label by now with the experience he has(which i believe is AT LEAST 10 years). Cash Money r just a bunch of wannabes who cant rap for shit... its sad to see a good rapper goin down.. Best of luck with those fags tho!

    My problem is not that Busta is signing to Cash Money.. my problem is that Busta is signing to ANYONE. He's been in the game for years. Enough time to have his own situation solidified. Why are you signing to people who haven't been in the game nearly as long as you. That's like the 50 year olds you see working at Mc.Donalds taken orders from a 16 year old. Fuck that. SMH

    • RR

      Dude has his own, Flipmode Entertainment, but I guess he's just needs a parent label which all labels do... Look at Kanye, G.O.O.D. Music been around for years, but just became official, because it's now under the Def Jam regime... it's just part of the game...

    • tresdemayo

      I'm not comparing Mobb Deep's career to Busta's, I agree with you on Mobb Deep sucking in '04 (not on the fact that Bus-a-Bus is at his peak right now), but the fact that he's signing to a dude who blew up after him. It's sad that someone like Busta needs a Lil Wayne to keep it moving, not hating on him though, I fucks with Bus since LOTNS and still digg his new shit. But he should be is own boss at this point

    • no not really

      busta is on top of his game right now, everybody konws his name, my dad knows who busta rhymes is, mobb deep sucked in 2004, most people outside of NY or who arent hip hop heads didnt even know who mobb deep was i saw them perform in a damn college convention center for $5 they couldnt even fill a damn stadium, cant remember busta having that problem, mobb deep had to sell out in order to stay relevant, busta didnt have to make this move but he chose to, y so much hate? u wouldnt sign to cash money given the chance?

    Typical complaining faggots. Everybody has a preference. YM/CM is a business just like any other record company, whether it's Roc Nation, Shady, MMG, Strange Music, etc. They'll be able to offer these dudes more promotion, and personally, despite most of you retarded fucks opinions, i would love to be on the team that has boasted the highest annual profits. Nobody made more money than Wayne/Drake/Minaj collectively this year. So regardless of whether I like any of there music or not (i don't), they certainly get paid. Good move Buss. I'm sure I'll dig some of your music wherever your at. Some fans are just fucking stupid. P.S. : Yes I know that certain companies have there own agenda to shape a rapper to their particular style, but shut the fuck up. That doesn't apply here. Busta already done had his style for a minute, worked fine on Carter IV; don't think Wayne or Baby are stupid enough to change up the formula. That's like expecting T-Pain to ditch auto-tune for more album sales. Fucking morons, I swear.....

  • war22

    maybe Busta will bring some hiphop in there...Mystikal 2...Mystikal is a hardcore rapper..i dont think he can do a song with Drake..cuz if he screams a lil louder Drake is gonna shit his pants...i hate YM but i gotta say Busta and Mystikal is gonna make some change in there...

And when that happens devoted fans that stuck since woo ha days will abandon him too like myself. Except I'm ahead of the crowd. ya had a good run busta but this just sealed yout

    You obviously ain't heard Why Stop Now yet. Busta will crush till he's 50+

    Great move. The only label in the game that is still IN THE GAME @BIrdman5Star last mogul standing. Salute. YMCMB gets paid like no hip-hop label ever has or ever will! Haterz will hate

    Some of you hip-hop fans forget this is a Business. The goal of a business is to make Money.

    Anyway Busta is way past his prime. The coming is always gonna be an underrated classic to me. I always compare the dread headed Busta of old with this new one and I prefer the former- always. Now he just babbles on incoherently how he's the best and how hard he goes, using the same flow on every song. Its just boring so I'm not surprised or disappointed that he's signing with cash money. I look at it as his retirement home.

    Busta Rhymes, Mystikal Sign With Cash Money...Busta Always making moves its no surprise but I'm happy for Mystikal ! Shits like the NBA almost remember the 04 lakers getting Malone & Payton?? That's what this feels like

      yeah but the pistons won that year.... anyways i dont know what to think of this. DJ Premier and a gang of other cats was sposed to be on Busta's new shit....i dont know if that'll happen now. but i mean good for him i guess. and also Birdman actually tried to sign jay electronica on the low. jay mentions that in an older issue of respect mag; which means that maybe birdman is looking for something kinda hip hoppy. so maybe this wont be as bad as people are thinking.

    They'll NEVER release another album for as long as they're signed to this corrupt label. Lil' Wayne is gone die like Tupac did, with $100 dollars in his bank account & a fleet of cars & a house not in his name.
