DJ Khaled joins Bow Wow to exit from Young Money Cash Money Billionaire (YMCMB) record label.
DJ Khaled was interviewed today (May 11) on The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 and not surprisingly the hosts pressed him on where he stood on the Birdman-Lil Wayne dispute.
Khaled refused to comment on the high profile breakup other than to say that both Baby and Wayne are family. Then he dropped some news that had been hinted at, but not yet confirmed.
“I’m not signed to Cash Money at all. I’ve been off for a minute,” Khaled revealed. The 39-year old’s We The Best Music imprint had been part of Birdman’s label since 2012.
This is the second high profile Cash Money defection following Bow Wow’s announcement he was now independent.
Like Bow Wow, Khaled described his parting with Birdman and company as amicable. But it still can’t be good for the label that everyone’s leaving.
