What purpose does CMR serve to Lil Wayne?

Wayne is the bread winner of the label right, yet he doesn't hold the same weight, he is essentially a signed artist who was given a sub label. CMR distributes YM, the three biggest bread winners are all YM artist and discovered by Wayne. When is the last time CMR discovered or built a successful artist outside of what Wayne has brought to the table?

Another thing, how this nigga Baby keep putting out albums that don't even sell, yet people like Bow Wow, Jae Millz, Tyga,etc can't put out albums for shit? lol

    , Wayne can't distribute his own music around the world...so enter;


    CMR


    Wayne has been way past that stage where any major would of given him his own label. This nigga is signed to another nigga who is signed to another nigga, he is way too deep into his career to even be a worker.

    Lil Wayne has two middle men (Universal and CMR) eating out his pockets.

    Look at his album booklet, it says distributed by CMR and Universal, and Baby/Slim are executive producers.

    Man, I couldn't have said it any better. Weezy saved CMR by himself when all they had was Mack 10, Weezy, and TQ.

    When dude was thinking about leaving CMR, he probably should have $-wise.

    They made Weezy "president" and made him "CEO" of YM, but that seems like just a paper title.

    I guarantee he's still not getting a fair cut from Slim & Baby. Dude seems like one of the most loyal dumb azzes of all time

    Powerful ass post. I think all dumb loyalty eventually comes to an end. The next 2-3 years are gonna be interesting. As his YM brand gets biggeR, Wayne has no choice but to ensure his finances are distributed accordingly. I'm with you, I doubt thats the case. Duke gonna eventually wake up and its gonna get ugly.

    Theres a lot of rappers who don't believe in loyalty, but since if it wasn't for Baby Wayne probably wouldn't have a career he feels indebted to him, and i don't see nothing wrong with that dude is still one of the highest earners in rap, and he doesn't even tour like others do.

    Why take 40 when you probably made the label 80 mil? Pay me what you owe me, that's that ole Suge Knight shit (pay artist in cars, jewelry,etc)

    Well for one thing. Wayne been yelling Young Money since what, The Carter 2?

    Second. If you actually followed the label you would know that CMB has shifted to more of a vet label like when Koch was signing all the dropped rappers.

    Think of YMCMB as the Heat in a way. You got 3 stars. Wayne, Drake, and Nicki.

    Then you have the vets that get signed to the minimum. Busta, Mystical, Bow Wow... You don't spend much and dont expect much, but if they do happen to produce, you quadruple your investment.

    The cats you aint heard from. Millz, Short Dawg, Gunz, Chuck e, they on the bench, and going hard at practice (mixtapes, features)

    lil Twist is moving from the 6th man to starting 5... Wayne, Drake, Nicki, Tyga, lil Twist

    Why does Baby keep putting out albums? Because he fuckin can. No other reason. (Owner/Player/Coach)

    They are pretty much doing exactly what they should.

    As far as Wayne's deal. How would this be any different that 50's label? Dre and Em's pockets come first.
    Cash Money is really just like No Limit WAS, only they are still relevant. Not only relevant, but the top label in the game right now.

    I hope not. I'd rather see Busta/Mystikal/Millz/Mack instead
