Young Thug leaked the information about him signing to Cash Money Records a little early.
Speculation has been arising lately, but when Young Thug was earlier seen exiting a Maybach that Cash Money Exec., Birdman was chilling in, he was snagged for an (unplanned) interview with Mass Appeal who asked him whether he was signed to Cash Money or not. Young Thug replied, "Yeah. I signed."
There has been no official announcement from either Birdman or any Cash Money representatives, so take this is as the unofficial announcement. However, given the fact that Young Thug was seen rocking a GTV Bottle Chain (which can be seen in the gallery) given to him by Birdman himself in addition the the most recent statement from Thug, it seems all but certain.
How do you think Young Thug will stand among the ranks of the Cash Money roster?
[Update: Birdman's Rep Denies Signing]
Earlier in the month, a writer at Mass Appeal reported on an extremely candid moment in which Young Thug confirmed signing with Cash Money.
It turns out that Thug's word wasn't the final one, as when XXL reached out to the label, Birdman's rep stated that the rapper is not currently signed to Cash Money, nor does he have a relationship with the label.
It's still possible the Thug could sign with YMCMB in the future, but it looks as if he's still currently a free agent.
Unfortunately he may have bigger issues than finding a label, as he was arrested in Atlanta last night.
