The Lost Ones: The Forgotten Artists Of YMCMB


The Forgotten Artists Of YMCMB

With Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj sitting atop rap as three of the top selling artists in Hip-Hop, Cash Money/ Young Money Records is arguably the leading Hip-Hop label in rap music today.

But the house that Brian “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams built didn’t climb this mountain overnight.

It has been a long hard road for YMCMB to take it’s place as a dominant rap label in the game.

Over the years, some artists have come, some artists have gone, but they all have a place in the Cash Money/Young Money legacy.

Today, we’re taking a look back at Cash Money’s run, as we remember the lost ones of YMCMB.

  • All these artist weren’t on ymcmb. Just cash money. Get your facts straight. Young money is a much more recent creation

  • dallas champ

    YMCMB do support their artists. Still, everyone is not going to shine. A label can only do so much. It’s up to the artist to stand out.

  • Regardless of what happen with their music careers or where ever they are now, I wish them all the best in their own lives.

    Everyone is not going to make it to the promise land, there must be some who have to stay behind and learn a little more before they can move forward, and take the place of those who have gone before them.

    Again I wish all of these artists the best, no matter where they may be today.
