Speaking at the Young Money / Cash Money Pre-Grammy Party last night, Lil Wayne announced that Milian was the latest singer to the Young Money roster.
The mother of one joins the likes of Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake at the label, which is distributed by Universal Republic (Universal Music).
Lil Tunechi also took the time to thank his team for their contribution to the label’s success, but not before asking for a moment of silence for Whitney Houston, who was pronounced dead at 3:55pm after being found in her hotel room in Hollywood, California just hours before mentor Clive Davis’ annual Grammy event.
The evening wasn’t complete until Wayne took time out to throw some jabs at arch-nemesis Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, rapping at the end of his announcement about signing Christina Milian, “I met a red-bone, I took the girl home/I asked her what she wanna watche, she said, ‘surely not The Throne,” to roars from the crowd.
Lil Wayne is up for a couple of Grammy nods, including Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for DJ Khaled’s “I’m on One.”
