T-Pain Signs To Lil Wayne’s Young Money Imprint?
T-Pain is apparently taking his “rapping ternt sangin’” over to Lil Wayne‘s Young Money imprint. According to reports, the Florida native has signed with Wayne’s label and will join a roster featuring the likes of Nicki Minaj and Drake.
News of a possible signing started when jeweler Gabriel Jacobs revealed he was crafting a Young Money/Nappy Boy pendant, which fuses the names of both T-Pain and Wayne’s record labels. The chain is a take on the New York Yankees logo.
“T-Pain’s about to sign to Young Money,” Jacobs said in an interview with VladTV. “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. The pendant is worth around $45,000 and when it’s with its chain, it will cost $100,000.”
Although neither team have yet to confirm (or deny) the new deal, both T-Pain and Wayne have collaborated on several projects. Most recently, T-Pain called on the ’6 Foot 7 Foot’ rhymer to appear in his Adult Swim cartoon special ‘Freaknik.’
