W3 The Future Signs To YMCMB

Lil Wayne and Mack Maine continue to build their Young Money empire with another addition to the team. Young Mula founder Lil Wayne revealed through YouTube that pop group W3 The Future has inked a deal with his label. YM president Mack Maine informed his Twitter followers of the news, as well. Their new signing W3 The Future is a teenage trio that consists of three 14-year-old artists (3siXT, Hotspot and Edge One).

YM’s roster already includes Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga, among others. Despite the success the commercial power house has had, they had yet to sign a group.

W3 The Future’s manager is Polo Molina, who also manages The Black Eyed Peas and is responsible for discovering W3 The Future.

The youthful rappers already have plans to bring something new to the table. They are working on a project entitled The West Side Of Mars which will attempt to mesh together shuffle, dubstep and Hip Hop. Some might recognize them from their appearance on BET’s “106 & Park” with Billboard charting Mowii of The Rej3ctz and for their “High Volume” music video they released about a year ago. They have also rocked the stage with Grammy Award-winning group The Black Eyed Peas.

Tyga Explains Lack Of ”YMCMB” Artist Features On New Album

Tyga elaborates on the absence of many Cash Money artists on his new album, revealing that he only included features that complimented the songs organically.

Tyga recently spoke at length about the Tupac feature he scored for the aptly titled “Hit ‘Em Up” off his new album “Hotel California”. This wasn’t the only notable feature on the album, which houses collaborations with Rick Ross, Game, Future, 2 Chainz, and more. While Weezy does make an appearance on “500 Degrees”, YMCMB heavyweights like Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Birdman are noticeably missing. Tyga spoke with MTV about his decision to leave many of his teammates off the LP.

“I just make it organically, feel me,” said Tyga, revealing that he did want to work with Minaj, but the collaboration never got off the ground. “I had a track that I wanted Nicki on, but it just didn’t work out.”

T-Raww expressed that he wanted to include features that made sense in the context of the songs, rather than just placing them in out of convenience, or allegiance to his team. “I just felt like I didn’t wanna just put anybody on anything, so every song that I got a feature on, you can hear that person on that feature,” he said. “It increases the song.”

The “Rack City” rapper stressed the importance of not having to rely on other artists, indicating that me may not always have a strong team behind him. “I’ve always treated my career independently because I feel like that’s the best way,” he said. “You gotta learn step-by-step what you’re doing because one day you might just be doing it solo.”

Tyga concluded that he feels this approach is also a rewarding one. “I think that’s the best way too. You find yourself as an artist and you got your own fans and you just move on your own really and people respect that more,”
