Birdman & Busta Rhymes Announce His Signing To Cash Money Records

Bus-A-Buss says that he considers the signing could be one of the "most defining moments in Hip Hop."

After revealing that he signed to Cash Money Records on Twitter, Busta Rhymes has released a video confirming the announcement. In a recently released clip, Bus-A-Buss appears with Birdman in the studio, stating that the signing is official and that they’re both excited about releasing music together.

“We wanted to let y’all know he’s the newest of the team,” said Baby. “And I really appreciate you fuckin’ with us like that. Get ready for big things. He got his first single coming out this week. YMCMB, the largest empire in the world. Fuck with us.”

Busta echoed his sentiments, claiming that it’s not only a big look for his personal career, but for Hip Hop in general.

“This whole experience that’s getting ready to happen is probably going to be one of the most defining moments in Hip Hop, and probably just entertainment overall. I think this alliance with the conglomerate and YMCMB and me and Bird and Wayne, the whole family is something that’s been a long time coming because we just always had a respect level and a genuine, organic friendship for a very long time. it goes back to the days of me and Bird used to just spend a million dollars a year on cars alone just to compete at the Funk Flex car shows.”

He said that his relationship with Baby extends back over a decade, and that they’ve been able to grow together to a point where they can work on the same label.

“As time has come to pass, we’ve grown and always delivered for each other when it came to the music. So for me, it’s just a golden moment personally and I just think it’s a golden moment for Hip Hop because with our experience and the genuine love, I think only greatness could come out of that.”

    seems like busta is only in it for the money

  • Big C

    Funny, cuz they still aren't better than Shady 2.0 or G.O.O.D. Music. I doubt Busta even releases an album under YMCMB.

    • feedbak

      Define "better." Lil Wayne's artists Drake & Nikki Minaj will exclusively outsell Slaugherhouse & Yelawolf collectively.

  • Harjodh Singh Bains

    NOOOOOOOO! He should've signed with Raekwons Ice H2o label. They both have great chemistry together. I guess Bustas gotta eat lol.

    how is this a defining moment in hip hop when the whole young money/cash money roster make nothing but pop, mainstream bullshit? shame on your busta rhymes. you went from a dope native tongue MC to a general with your flipmode squad to a fucking bitch, featuring on chris brown, lil wayne and justin bieber records. to top it all off your signing to a bullshit label. sad day for hip hop.

  • feedbak

    "weve grown and always delivered for each other when it came to the music." Oh really? where were you when Birdman was selling BG albums out of his trunk? Lets tell it how it is. You joined the conglomerate as you said, so you could pad you're bank account. So a great moment for hip hop? not sure, but definitely a great moment for you're bank account. If they're synonymous cool, but lets be clear on the motive.

  • the doc

    what song is that at the end Shit is fuckin hot

  • Lilmarcci JonesCd

    shlt he's ok but hearing too much of his voice could be bad for radio. I'd hate for another t-pain like era with this ngga. likely want happen......hell he will either release a shit stain single that CM will promote all over the place to get it in your head OR he'll be put on the shelves and finally released like Lloyd(or was it Omarion) and Wish Bone

    Anything that will help busta with this new shit is good...Is, and always will be a general in hip hop. No matter the situation, he just adding his flavor to it

  • Your Mom

    Busta is doin his thing, he was one of the hottest hook artist this year next to 50, Wayne and I hate to say it Ross. But No one is the game can fuck with Bustas flow. He's on the Hottest comeback of 2012. He made "Look at me now" on of the top club hits of 2011. Everyone in the game right now knows Busta is hungry and with signing to YMCMB this might be one of the best moves Busta has made since signing with Aftermath before Dre got his hands full of wack ass artist that never popped. Put your hands where your eyes can see and realize Busta is a legend in this game!!!

    • GStar

      Busta will be remembered for his early stuff not his pop shit he be doing. The dude is jumping on tracks with Justin Bieber. He dont care about the music no more its all about money in hip hop now. Next Busta will be rocking then faggot ass YM hoodies with the girl cow jeggings doing 360 on skateboards.

    MAC MILLER DON'T NEED BIRDMAN TO BLOW UP. BUT A 4O YEAR OLD, PLATINUM SELLING, VETERAN RAPPER DOES???? WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?...

  • Anonymous

    way to take a step back busta. with Wayne and Drake being the megastars of the label, now Busta, with whom went from GENERAL status of the flipmode squad, is now a soldier, a peon. and no albums. just features

  • BigNoct

    Is it me or does it seem like Busta is playing himself?

  • Anonymous

    Nas is next. YMCMB > Your favorite rapper's label.

    • mike t

      relax, Busta has never dropped anything close to a classic album anyways, so its not really that big of a deal. The next album will just have a ton of wick-wack cash money emcees guest featured and be a piece of hot garbage no one will mention by next year.

    • YADIG

      NAS WOULDNT JOIN FAG MONEY... FUCK LIL WAYNE AND ALL THEM JEGGING WEARING FAGGOTS OVER AT WACK MONEY

    no golden moment for hip-hop should of stayed with aftermath best label ever proof eminem, dr dre, 50 cent, Game and snoop Dogg you can't test that

    • phillman

      @nope you must not have heard Em's shit from before he signed with Dre if you think that Dre made Eminem. a lot of the songs off of Eminem's first major release "The Slim Shady LP" were done before he even linked up with Dre, and the majority of the production on that album isn't even from Dre.

      @Anonymous If it wasn't for the astroid killing the dinosaurs, the ice age connecting asia to north america, native indians dying and the killing of mammoths. America wouldn't be shit.

    • nope

      pac dissed dre before he died.dre left suge anyways. Em aint got shit on dre homeboy, matter fact dre MADE eminem

    • Anonymous

      Fuck 50, fuck Dre and fuck Game. All of them sold records on the strength of Eminem and only Em is still on top. If it wasn't for Eminem signing with Dre, Suge going to jail and 2 Pac dying, Dr Dre wouldn't be shit.

  • ItsTheTruth

    The YMCMB label is not gonna change the fact that he a 40 year old washed up rapper that still using his 'Look At Me Now' flow. Take away the fast flow and your left with garbage lyrics. We already know how this album is gonna sound, and who the features is gonna be. No surprises. It's the truth.

    • mike t

      being a buster dosent change the fact that you'll be using Busta's next album as a coaster five years from now.

      you sould like a buster and a hater. are you making minimum wage or did you get a dollar extra? lames like you make me sick.

  • Ron Nizamov

    i dont know how to react, i guess weel see on his 1st cash money album

  • DrDreBeats

    I cant see Busta rocking YMCMB hoodies and wearing cow pattern woman jeggings. I would rather he went to a wack label and made hip hop than moving to Wack Money and making pop songs. I guess its all about money today yet Mac Miller gets dissed but he stays indie for his fans, rather than signing to a major label

    • HoldUp

      i bet you wouldn't fuck woth cash money without cameras on or the police nearby ---------------------------------------- funniest shit I have ever seen on this website.

    Busta back in the 90's with Tribe was Hip Hop... This isn't Hip Hop. I believe any true head would agree, but I could be wrong?

    • Roddi_P

      Man listen, you underground/old heads get on my nerves with this shit. As the world evolves, so does hip hop. Nothing in this world is meant to stay the same, you can't name one instance of music that sounds the same as it does 20 years ago. It's called change ... BUSTA is SMART because he evolved with the game, that's why he's still a relevant artists. As a fan of hip hop/rap you have to be more open minded, i bet you still preachin about slavery an shit too. It's GREAT to know where you came from, but even greater to be able to grow and evolve from that past knowledge.

    • Raiden

      @Observe: Yeah, Its a far cry from songs like Senario etc. But I havent liked Busta's shit for close to 5-7 years anyway so I wouldnt expect anyone from his former fanbase to still be checking for him. @Anon: If you dont know what the more experienced hip hop listeners are talking about, just keep quiet. Everytime fools you like you comment on such topics you embarrass yourselves with lack of knowledge and ignorance.

    nah Busta... this signing is not historic. You're just joining a label that's doing well right now. Lil Wayne signing Drake, Dre signing Em, Dre signing 50, and Jay-Z and Damon Dash signing Kanye West >>>> this. Sorry Busta. There have been more defining moments. On that note, you'll get good promotion. Just make good music and you're set. Oh, and make sure Birdman actually pays you
