Young Money Entertainment is quickly becoming one of the most coveted record labels in the industry. In this year alone rapper Lil Wayne’s label has added two of most successful breakout artists, Drake and Nicki Minaj, to their roster. It has recently been reported that the Young Money camp has just signed the “King of Auto-Tune,” T-Pain.
This rumor surfaced when famed jeweler, Gabriel Jacobs released a video message saying he is currently crafting a Young Money/Nappy Boy pendant for the artist. The pendant will showcase over 200 karats in rubies and 300 karats in diamonds.
Jacobs says the blinged out spectacle is worth roughly $45, 000 – not to mention the chain that will accompany it, which will cost $100,000.
“T-Pain is about to sign to Young Money. He better, after doing this. So you see it’s all blacked out. It’s all natural, red rubies, black diamonds. We gotta put a red ruby necklace on this thing,” he said.
Since the success of T-Pain’s last studio album in 2008, “Thr33 Ringz”, the singer/rapper has had multiple collaborations with Young Money front man Lil Wayne. T-Pain sang the hook in Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” track, “Got Money” and before that, the mogul was featured on T-Pain’s “Can’t Believe It.”
Fans are going to be eagerly waiting to see what the new move to Young Money Entertainment will do for the Pain’s career.
