Early this year, Young Thug reached the height of his career when “Stoner” became the first big hit of 2014. Of course, those who followed Young Thug’s mixtape success know the song dropped last summer. Initially associated with Gucci Mane, the success of Young Thug’s music put him in Birdman’s orbit.
Birdman is the head of Cash Money Records and the label is home to a large roster of artists. In fact, the roster is so big that Cash Money Records distributes a couple of other labels. The main labels under Cash Money are Young Money and We The Best, which have tons of leading artists.
Young Thug’s actual label status is the subject of tons of debate, but it is clear that his next stop is Birdman and Cash Money Records. Atlanta is Young Thug’s city and he is often on the town. Recently, Young Thug brought Birdman out at Opera in Atlanta and they introduced their new handshake.
