More congratulations are in order for Austin Mahone as the next big thing has officially signed with Lil’ Wayne’s YMCMB. Mahone will join the label’s big named roaster which includes the likes of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Paris Hilton (yes, Paris Hilton).
The move seems only natural considering Lil’ Wayne first recruited the “What About Love” cutie as the teen ambassador for the rapper’s Trukfit clothing line.
Rapper and Cash Money CEO congratulated the young pop star via Instagram Thursday night by uploading a photo of the two together with the caption, “congrat chase records and AUSTIN MAHONE WELCOME to tha FAMILY…YMCMBUSINESS expanding tha LABELS.”
To think that he performed acoustic versions of his songs “Say Somethin'” and “Say I’m Just A Friend” on our rooftop two weeks ago is insane. Since his little visit, he’s gone on to serenade the crowd on the VMA red carpet and even picked up the award for “Best New Artist.”
Oh, they grow up so fast.
