    We wish we had been in South Beach last night. Young Money's showcase at the Red Bull Guest House weekend was capped off by a headlining performance from Lil Wayne. Weezy was the last to hit the stage at an all-day pool party that featured DJ sets by Questlove, Hudson Mohawke, and Mannie Fresh. Mannie also got up on stage during Wayne's set, so we hope that's a signal of a future collab from the two (former) Cash Money brethren.

    Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable. Now, it looks as though they'll split apart or crumble together. The recent grievances aired by YMCMB's biggest star aren't the first.

    Nicki Minaj's third album, The Pinkprint, dropped this week and even though it's only been out for a little over a day, sales projection numbers are rather optimistic. Hits Daily Double reported today that The Pinkprint is set to sell 155,000 to 165,000 albums in its first week, with an additional 15,000 album streams. Considering that 2014 was a rather slow year in sales for hip-hop, these are pretty good numbers and Nicki Minaj has had one of the best first weeks of the year. But then again, this isn't surprising.

    The story of two brothers who came from nothing, from a city far off the hip-hop radar, and built an empire. But they didn’t do it alone. Brothers Bryan “Baby” Williams (who we now know as Birdman), age 22, and Ronald “Slim” Williams, age 24, wanted to get out of their projects and build a better life for their family and friends in Magnolia and the surrounding Wards. They started off with a very local Uptown roster and began making waves in the N.O. bounce music community.

    Since Tyga went on a tweeting spree about his dissatisfaction with Young Money a few weeks ago, we haven't heard any updates about his label (or for that matter, album) status, but a new interview with VIBE may offer some clues.

    More trouble in the Young Money camp. Earlier this week, Tyga voiced his frustration with the label, suggesting that YM is holding his album "hostage", before threatening to leak it himself. While it went a little more under the radar, Lil Twist was having similar gripes a few days prior, taking aim at his management team on Twitter for his lack of musical output.

    Tyga is not happy. In a series of tweets fired off just minutes ago, the Young Money (for now) rapper said his album's "been done, and that his label is "holding [him] hostage."

    I Am Music. The title of Lil Wayne’s 2008-2009 national tour needed no further explanation. Wayne, who had just released his Grammy Award-winning album Tha Carter III, had the rap game on lockdown. Using binoculars, it still would’ve been hard to see stragglers such as actor-turned-rapper Drizzy Drake in Wayne’s rearview. Drake, who hadn’t yet released his 2009 breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone, was still a no-name rapper to the greater half of the hip-hop community. Fast forward five years later, oh how the tables have turned.
